Hidden graffitti and Urban Tour

About this experience

The Hidden Graffiti & Urban Art Tour is a strictly off the beaten path tour that takes you pedaling through the hidden southern neighborhoods of Buenos Aires.

We explore the Southern edge of the city to discover some of the city’s most impressive street art. Far more than strictly street art, this tour examines the cultural and historical background of Buenos Aires’ and its relationship to street art within seldom-visited vibrant neighborhoods, tracing the connection between tags and art, the city’s architecture, its use by artists, and their expressions that give a voice to the voiceless and visibilty to the invisible. Make the most of this 4 hour tour, as soon it will be replaced with a longer, more in depth version.

I feel really fortunate to be able to say that I grew up in the Bay of Plenty, which was once small town on New Zealand's North Island East coast (now, one of the fastest growing in the country).
Having quick and easy access to all of its beaches was a blessing growing up as well as having the resources at the Omanu Papamoa lifeguarding club, this meant water sports were always amongst my key activities. Thinking back, whether it was for bmx, road or mountain, I was almost always on a bike, the beauty of it all is that in NZ, everything is relatively close and accessible, I could bike 20 minutes and be in a seal colony (in Wellington), or five minutes in the surf.
I sold everything (or gave it away), took my bike and went cycle-touring through South East Asia for four months. Afterwards, still not content, I invested in a round the world trip ticket which by accident led me to Argentina, to a Vipassana 10 day silent meditation retreat, to a job with an international theatre company, to my gorgeous wife and so ten days turned very quickly to ten years! I work as an audio visual actor and for the last 5 years I have been guiding visitors riding bikes in BA, to satisfy and maintain my needs for the outdoors and meeting others who have a zest for a quest.

    Raymond was simply wonderful. His knowledge and ideas throughout the tour were spot on to my partner and my tastes and he was very accommodating. He instantly knew our passions for arts and went over and above to ensure we had the best possible experience. THANK YOU!!

    A great way to know Buenos Aires southern neighborhoods. It is fast, since you bike all around it and you get to see and enjoy some amazing art and artists stories. Be prepared to do a lot of great exercise while you know a part of the city and a side of Buenos Aires you didn´t know.
