Graffiti and street art tours

graffitimundo is a non-profit organisation which promotes the urban art scene of Buenos Aires and supports local artists.

Our guided tours reveal the extraordinary history of the city’s vibrant urban art culture, from its fiery political origins, to the modern context in which Buenos Aires has become one of the world’s most exciting cities for street art.

We take you off the beaten path to visit hidden graffiti hotspots and open air galleries. Stopping by the city’s only street art bar and gallery, the tours also give you the chance to meet the artists themselves and buy affordable artwork.

Our tours have been developed in close collaboration with the city’s leading artists, enabling us to share their personal stories and motivations, together with the most spectacular art the city has to offer.

If you’d like to join us on a tour, you can use our online booking system here.

We recommend taking the tour at the beginning of your trip, and booking in advance as spaces are limited.
