Private Filetado Tour of San Telmo

We'll meet at the time of your choice at Bar El Federal, an emblematic establishment located in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of San Telmo.

Before starting the tour, we'll have breakfast or a snack in this bar, depending on the selected time of the tour, which includes two croissants with black coffee, coffee with milk, or tea, as you prefer.

After this tasty breakfast or snack, we'll begin our walk through San Telmo discovering the lettering and drawing art form called 'fileteado porteño'. To do so, we'll first visit the house of the artist Martiniano Arce. We'll also visit other iconic places such as the Church of San Pedro Telmo and the Galería del Viejo Hotel, a former hotel turned art gallery.

We'll continue the private tour of San Telmo checking out other neighborhood must-sees related to the fileteado porteño style, such as the Tasca de los Cuchilleros, the house of artist Jorge Muscia and that of Esteban de Luca.

After exploring for three to four hours, the tour will conclude at the San Telmo Market.
