BA Street Art Tours tours will show you some of the biggest murals in neighborhoods that aren’t in the tourist guidebooks. See huge murals and works by international street artists like Blu, Fintan Magee, Alice Pasquini, Alfredo Segatori and Martin Ron. Many of the murals that are included on this tour were curated and sponsored by BA Street Art. Our expert guides will also explain about the growth of street art and graffiti in Argentina, the stories behind the artworks, different painting techniques as well as political propaganda. BA Street Art was founded in 2009 and is closely connected to the street art scene. We support local artists and have organised more than 100 murals in the city of Buenos Aires in the last six years. Funds received from our tours also go towards funding future mural projects.

Highly recommend the BA Street Art Tour. Extremely informative, beautiful and an insight into Argentine culture not captured by the average walking tour. Lucia was extremely knowledgable and personable.

We were a group of 9 people doing the tour. We had a great time and our tour guide Lucia was excellent. She knew a lot about the street art scene and showed us some great art. I highly recommend them.

3hr walking tour. Went to different areas, learned a lot of background about the artists and saw places you normally wouldn't see by just wandering around.
