Wat je gaat doen

In this walking tour, we will make an in-depth immersion into downtown Buenos Aires, "el centro". This area, in appearence just a touristic highlight, has been for centuries the politic and economic heart of the city--the expert eye will find in it great insights on Buenos Aires's complex history and identity.
We will start at Plaza de Mayo, where we will appreciate the long-term as well as recent history of city and country. We will include a visit to the Metropolitan Cathedral, Pope Francis's former workplace.
From there we'll visit the financial district ("la city"), taking a look at its magnificent banking architecture. A variety of styles (from 1900s beaux-arts palaces to interwar art-déco and modernist experiments) will show us not only the beauty, but also the economic importance of this city in the region. In weekdays, we'll include a visit to three banks (Nación, Provincia and Hipotecario) and to the Galería Güemes.
The visit continues along the Avenida de Mayo, first boulevard and symbol of the bustling cosmopolitan metropolis Buenos Aires was in the early 20th century. We'll include a visit to some of its famous cafés, plus a ride on the the beautifully-preserved A-line, oldest subway in Latin America (and the world's 12th!).
This itinerary can be of course modified in order to suit the visitors' preferences.

I’m a historian, born and raised in Buenos Aires. My academic formation started at the University of Buenos Aires (BA in History, 2008) and continued at Princeton University, USA (PhD in History, 2017). Among all the fields of study, the history of my city and its architecture has always been my top interest and passion. I’ve worked for many years as a free-lance cultural guide in the city, and have also worked for local agencies. I love to share with visitors the highlights as well as the lesser-known areas of town, to discuss their history, and to appreciate the diverse and ecclectic styles of their architecture.

Martin was an amazing host, guide and teacher. We learned about colonial history, the independence movement, architecture and many other topics. I can’t recommend him highly enough. He adjusted our itinerary to our interests. This tour was a highlight of our time in Buenos Aires.

Wow! If you are looking to understand a level and depth about Buenos Aires Martin is your guy. My boyfriend is in finance and asked him some of the most arcane financial questions and Martin is so passionate, knowledgeable and skilled in Argentina culture, business, politics he was able to answer all of them. Maybe we were lucky because it was just the two of us and Martin but it was such a personalized experience and his education and PhD in history really comes through. I had also hurt myself before the tour and Martin was able to accommodate my physical limitations. I still saw so much and learned a lot and it was nice to feel cared for! The rich history of this city can easily be learned and digested by taking this tour with Martin. Highly recommended!

An exceptional day with a knowledgeable, well prepared and thoughtful host with a unique approach to sharing the history of the city. Martin knows his stuff, is passionate, and makes excellent use of architectural features of local buildings to enrich your take on the people of BsAs and their history. I especially enjoyed the old photos used to complement the historic context and Martin's very personable style. Don't hesitate to book this tour; you are in for a real treat.

I spent an amazing morning wandering around Buenos Aires' downtown district with Martín. Knowing Buenos Aires quite well, I had never imagined I would learn so much about its history and architecture, besides getting to know hidden corners and details that were really fascinating. Martín is extremely knowledgeable and a great guide and companion. I fully recommend this experience!
