Owner description: graffitimundo is non-profit organisation which celebrates graffiti & street art in Buenos Aires and supports its artists. We run tours in close collaboration with a network of street artists, and share our first hand knowledge of the scene through friendly guided tours which reveal the extraordinary story behind the thriving urban art scene. Our tours take you off the beaten path to reveal the city's hidden graffiti hotspots and street art galleries. You’ll learn all about the Buenos Aires urban art scene, from the cultural and historical origins to the different styles and techniques on display. Stopping by an artists’ studio and finishing in the city’s only street art bar and gallery, the tour also gives you the chance to meet with artists and buy affordable artwork. All proceeds from our tours are used to keep our project running, and enable us to continue promoting the scene and supporting its artist.

After recommendation from our hostel myself and a friend decided to take the Graffiti Tour. The alternative tour gave a different view of the city and was well worth the time and different to conventional tours. The guide was excellent she was informative and explained the history and types of graffiti from Argentina and referenced graffiti from other parts of the world too. The walk lasted for roughly 3 hours with a gallery at the end. It's a perfect opportunity to take photographs and experience the neighbourhoods. Very good value for money.

This tour was to be honest disappointing. I had high expectations though after coming from an amazing 5 star valparasio street art tour the previous week. The tour combined bus and walking transport. I thought that the guide really dragged out the explanations and it was quite tedious at several points. She spent a lengthy amount of time at one piece giving us very long explanations about political history (normally I would find this riveting) but I was bored silly. At the end of the tour she bought us to a graffiti bar and introduced us to a graffiti artist who literally said 'hi' then left! She gave no explanation other than pointing to a few of his pieces, like she did not explain why he became a graffiti artist, how long he had been doing it for - nothing. Even if the artist couldn't speak English you would think she might let us ask a few questions or maybe he could say a quick introduction. I was just really disappointed. I do acknowledge the other great reviews that are here.

After 5 months living in Buenos Aires, we booked the graffitimundo tour that had been recommended to us back when we first arrived. We loved this tour! And our two teens enjoyed it too. Our tour guide Ana was so knowledgeable, and she provided valuable context and history to the many images and pieces we have seen throughout the city. We gained a renewed understanding of this form of public expression, signature styles, content, etc. Also enjoyed learning about the relatively young nature of Argentine street art/graffiti compared to other world-wide movements. We had a lovely afternoon with sun shining, and ending at a gallery to see and purchase "extensions" of street art was the icing on the cake. A must for any visitor to BsAs!

Graffitiimundo is a fun way to spend a few hours, learning about the art and artists who produce some amazing street murals.

We had a wonderful day doing the graffiti tour in Buenos Aires. The guide was so knowledgeable and the background stories were so interesting on the various artists and their work that I could have spent another day with her looking at more graffiti. Really the time flew by and it didn't seem nearly long enough for everything there was to see. I highly recommend including this on your "must see" list of BA.
