¿Cuál es la diferencia entre graffitis y murales? ¿Sabías que hay muy pocas restricciones para pintar murales en Buenos Aires, y por eso han venido muchos artistas internacionales a dejar su arte aquí? Si aún no has visitado Buenos Aires, ésta es tu oportunidad para conocer el barrio natal de Jorge Luis Borges e inspiración para muchos de sus cuentos. En este recorrido veremos algunos de los ejemplos más representativos de Street Art en Buenos Aires y veremos cómo este barrio se convirtió en un centro creativo visitado por turistas y lugareños por igual. Descubriremos graffitis, murales y otras expresiones del arte urbano, las técnicas empleadas por los artistas y las historias que se esconden detrás de cada uno de estos muros. También veremos cómo se ha aplicado la creatividad a tiendas, bares y restaurantes al recorrer los pasajes empedrados donde vivían los inmigrantes que poblaron esta ciudad a fines del siglo XIX. Acompáñame a visitar este increíble barrio y deja que sus paredes te cuenten sus secretos. NOTA: Este tour es en español fluido.

Grace is full of knowledge and passionate about sharing her culture and city. She has a wonderful understanding or art, its meaning and the visual impact it has socially, morally and ethically. She stops long enough for tourists to take great snap shots too. It's all part of a wonderful journey with a kind, caring guide.

This was a real treat. I loved the street art and appreciated that Grace spoke Spanish throughout, at a good speed e.g. neither too slow nor too fast, just right for someone studying at A-level. I look forward to her next Spanish language tour.

Excellent tour, and, for those who don't have Spanish as their native language, very clearly delivered.
