With this tour, not only will you enjoy a guided walking tour of Buenos Aires, but you'll also explore the famous Colon Theatre and you'll enter the incredible MALBA Museum. 

Colon Theatre & MALBA Museum Walking Tour

We'll meet at 10:30 am in the San Telmo neighbourhood, the oldest area of Buenos Aires. Then, we'll start the tour by exploring this area and learning about the essence of tango and the arts in the city.

We'll wander south along Calle Defensa, visiting the antique markets and we'll soon reach Lezama park where you'll see the tree-lined avenues and the amphitheatre. Our next stop will be at the southern end of the Puerto Madero district, where we'll walk along the riverbank on the opposite side of the city. We hope you've got your camera, please you'll want to capture these wonderful views!

We'll cross over the Puente de la Mujer rotating footbridge, and as we do, the skyscrapers and exclusive restaurants that fill this area will catch your eye: a stark contrast to other images of Buenos Aires. 

The walking tour will lead to Avenida Paseo Colón, and we'll reach the historic Plaza de Mayo square, where you'll be able to admire the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Cabildo and the Casa Rosada presidential house. The next stop will be to take a look at the obelisk, and then, after walking along Avenida 9 de Julio, we'll reach the Teatro Colón theatre.

We'll head inside this emblematic theatre, considered as one of the best five theatres in the world. As you explore the main foyer, the gallery, the hall and its other facilities, you're sure to understand why it is so highly regarded.

Finally, we'll leave the theatre behind and climb aboard the minibus which takes us to the MALBA Museum  (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires), in the heart of Palermo. We'll give you your ticket, and you can explore the museum at your own pace, one of the most complete and important in the Latin American world.

Finalmente, abandonaremos el teatro y desde aquí, subidos en un cómodo minibús, nos desplazaremos hasta el Museo MALBA (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires), en pleno barrio de Palermo. Os daremos la entrada y exploraréis por vuestra cuenta este museo, uno de los más completos e importantes en lo que al arte latinoamericano se refiere.
