At this time we are giving the tour on Wednesday and Saturday. However, we do plan to add other hours in the near future and we are always happy to arrange for private tours. Feel free to inquire by contacting us here.
For the City Center free tour: we meet at 10:00 AM every Wednesday and Saturday morning rain or shine. (unless it is hailing, then we stay at home with our slippers on!) We meet at Maipú and Urquiza on the steps of the old Customs House.
For the Pichincha Neighborhood free tour: we meet at 05:00 PM every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon rain or shine. We meet at the corner of Bv. Oroño and Salta, always look for the orange T-shirts.
Reservations are not necessary for the tours, just turn up at the meeting point early and the guide will be ready to lead a tour.
As for landmarks, Rosario has a few. But landmarks aren’t the key point of interest in our tour. The golden nuggets are the fun facts you will learn all long the trail. Yes, of course, we visit the Fountain of Utopias, Parque España and the Center for Contemporary Expression while making our way to the Flag Monument. But we try to avoid any history you might find on Wikipedia. For this reason we have sought out and researched anecdotes that even most Rosarinos wouldn’t know.
Yes. Free in that you are at liberty to give what you think we deserve or your budget can afford. We give this tour on a volunteer basis as a way of enriching the tourist industry in Rosario while simultaneously preserving the stories that history would otherwise swallow up. So yes, it is free, but we would be extremely grateful for your donations.
Donations typically range from $200 to $400 pesos per person. Let me put it into perspective for you. If you liked the tour and you had a good time, it would roughly be like saying, “Hey man, let me buy you a beer.” Bam! $200 pesos.
