Learn about the notable personalities, heroes, and icons who have shaped Argentina's history on this walking tour, with a special focus on the beloved and controversial First Lady Eva “Evita” Perón.

Listen to the fascinating life story of Eva Duarte, who rose from poverty to pursue a career as an actress before marrying Juan Perón and becoming the First Lady of Argentina. Before her death at the age of 33, Eva Perón championed the rights of women and the working class. Consider her legacy as you visit her mausoleum at the beautiful La Recoleta Cemetery.

Continue on to the modern metallic Floralis Genérica sculpture as your guide tells you about General San Martín, leader of the struggle for independence from Spain. Traverse the verdant Parque Tres de Febrero and learn about its French-Argentine designer Carlos Thays. Then pass by the Galileo Galilei Planetarium on your way to Chinatown for a look at one of Buenos Aires' busiest and most diverse neighborhoods.

At the Plaza Italia, pause to hear about the life of 20th-century writer Jorge Luis Borges; then arrive at the Museo Evita. This museum paints a portrait of the indelible mark Eva Perón left on the city of Buenos Aires. Look at images of Evita addressing crowds of Peronists from the balcony of the Casa Rosada. See her dresses and gowns on display and read excerpts from her book La Razón de mi Vida before your tour concludes.

Wasn’t a walking tour as advertised. Minimal mention or explanation of other historical figures other than Eva Peron. Duration advertised as 3 hours 30 minutes. One hour at Evita museum where we were advised to use the dysfunctional app as a guide tour as he was not allowed to guide us in the museum. 10 minute talk in recoleta cemetery whilst shown Eva tomb 20 minutes self guide. 20 shuttle in minivan. Brief mention of Jorge Luis Borges and only because we asked. Very disappointing and not value for the money. NOT A WALKING TOUR AS WE HAVE EXPERIENCED IN OTHER CITIES.
