The name, Buenos Aires, literally means "good airs" in Spanish. It is one of the largest cities in Latin America, with a wide range of cultural offers and stunning sights.

Let yourself be seduced by its busy and beautiful streets full of Tango aromas and football passion, a unique mixture that turns your stay into an exceptional urban adventure.

Buenos Aires North Area Sightseeing Experience with Lunch in Palermo Steak House Private Experience | Duration: 6 hs | Vehicle and English speaking guide at disposal | Mineral water on board | 3-course menu, half a bottle of wine and one soft drink person | The itineraries are liable to updates in order to provide better service according to the day, and inclusions agreed for your tour. Buenos Aires is one of the most fascinating cities in both Latin America and the world. Be it for its splendid and varied architecture, with its old Colonial buildings, French palaces and state-of-the-art skyscrapers; for its vibrant nightlife and endless cultural options; or maybe just for the rich identity of the Porteños, who proudly bear the European heritage of their ancestors,
more and more visitors are coming to visit.

In Retiro and Recoleta, we will learn about the dream of our local aristocrats in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when they sought to build a small-scale Paris in the heart of Buenos Aires. After visiting the impressive Plaza San Martín, where Jorge Luis Borges used to take his walks, we’ll stroll down Avenida Alvear, chosen by the world’s most distinguished brands to install their exclusive boutiques, looking up to see the many wonderful French-style palaces which nowadays house a number of embassies. Then we’ll visit the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar, one of the city’s oldest churches, which dates to the Colonial era. Finally, we’ll admire the celebrated Recoleta Cemetery, a true labyrinth of ornate mausoleums. We’ll make a stop at Eva Peron’s grave, one of the country’s most recognizable icons.

We’ll come across sumptuous French palaces again in Palermo Chico, the area of Palermo best known for its large parks designed by celebrated landscape architects, such as the illustrious Frenchman Charles Thays.

Suggested Optional (Not included - In addition): Stop at La Biela Remarkable Cafe
Regular Service (shared venue) | Includes 1 coffee or classic hot chocolate with croissants or classic toasted sandwich, at this unique spot in the city. Porteño "Feel & "Nostalgia"...In the range of classic places in the city of Buenos Aires, one of the most alive and qualified referents is La Biela. This historic bar in the elegant neighborhood of La Recoleta keeps its prestige and prosapia intact as a meeting place, being one of the redoubts that give the city its unmistakable elegant and cosmopolitan air.

A special mention deserves the photographs located on the wide bar. All of them were taken by great Argentinian literature: Adolfo Bioy Casares, who took the photos in order to illustrate with them a book by Jorge Luis Borges. Both were regular clients of La Biela, and these photos attest to the passage of time in the neighborhood of La Recoleta, also showing a facet perhaps little known by this great writer: the photographer.
Observations: This remarkable café opens every day from 07:00 AM to 02:00 AM (except on Sundays, open from 08:00 AM).

Liable to updates.
Suggested Optional (Not included - In addition): Wine Stop in Recoleta - ProVinCia Wine Bar.
Regular Service (Shared) | Enjoy a glass of Malbec wine with tapas at ProVinCia Wine Bar (Olives, Cheese, and Bread) | 1 hour of vehicle and guide should be added for this supplement, depending on the rest of the activities during the tour | Closed on Sundays. Arroyo St. is one of the most Parisian streets in Buenos Aires, and ProVinCia Wine Bar, with its marble tables by the sidewalk, reinforces that mark.
Wine on the go!: The space is small, just a few shelves and a tiny wooden bar, all with impeccable aesthetics. The bar is ideal for those that want to discover Argentine wine. The labels are not many, but they are stocked: from small wine-making ventures to large wineries such as Catena Zapata, Mendel Wines, Bodega Kaiken, Corazón del Sol, Finca Suárez, among others.

Visitors can enjoy wine by bottle or by glass, as rotates constantly. As the absolute stardom is wine, the food only accompanies and it is reduced to a few options: variety of cheeses, olives, sourdough bread and cold Omelet.

Buenos Aires South Area Sightseeing Experience with Lunch at Traditional Bodegon Private Experience | Vehicle and English speaking guide at disposal | Duration: 6 hours | Mineral water on board| 3-course lunch with 1 soft drink and half bottle of wine per person included | The itineraries are liable to updates in order to provide a better service according to the day, and inclusions agreed for your tour.
Visit Plaza de Mayo, the city’s foundational site and witness of our country’s political history. There we’ll visit the Pink House, our Presidential Palace, the Cabildo, our primitive town hall, and the Neoclassical-styled Metropolitan Cathedral, the final home of Argentina’s founding father, José de San Martín.
We`ll pass through Puerto Madero, the latest addition to the city’s barrios. In 1991, its huge warehouses and silos were remodelled and redesigned, to finally integrate the river to the city and to create a new corporative, residential, hotel and gastronomically district, which has become the playground for the pretty Porteños and the international jet-set.
We’ll then head for San Telmo, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires. It used to be the residential district favoured by the upper class until late 19th century when a yellow fever epidemic caused the wealthier families to leave northwards. The area was marginalized until the 1970s when many artists and artisans came to San Telmo to install their workshops. Nowadays, thanks to its amazing architecture and hip atmosphere, this ancient neighbourhood is really blooming. We’ll walk its cobbled streets, where the city’s Colonial past seems to come back to life, making a stop at Plaza Dorrego, best known for its traditional antiques fair, held every Sunday.
Enjoy Lunch at a traditional restaurant, typical "bodegón" (Venue: To be informed).
In Argentina, in addition to having national dishes and desserts, we have a "traditional Argentine cuisine", which is also a mixture of Italian, Spanish and German dishes, all together in the same menu. This characteristic is due to the strong emigration that our country had in ancient times. This feeling of "belonging to the city", it´s transmitted through the abundance and accessibility of its food, and also by its environment. Each bodegon in Buenos Aires that lasts is a space of living history that is why sitting at their tables is one of the best ways to get to know the city.
Leaving San Telmo behind, we’ll continue southwards to La Boca, one of the city’s most authentic and charming neighbourhoods. It is a working class district, heavily shaped by Italian immigrants who came to our country in large numbers during the last quarter of the 19th century. Here, we’ll make a special visit to the mythical Caminito Street, which sums up everything that gives La Boca its distinctive spirit: the strong passion for soccer, the heavy presence of art and colour, and the Tango-esque atmosphere.
Observations: Daily departures. Lunch can be organized in a different restaurant and in other areas of the city. 4 hours are usually dedicated to cover full itinerary and 2 hours for lunch time. Please note the itinerary can be customized as per guest´s interests. If you add supplements (optional) to the original tour, note that extra time may apply, please check for extra vehicle and guide time cost.

Tunnels & Mystery... A voyage into the origins of Buenos Aires. A magical space where poetry, history, and myth coexist. Welcome to one of the most important urban archaeology projects in the city.
El Zanjon: Some historians point to the Zanjón de Granados ravine as the site of the first settlement of Buenos Aires in 1536. The remains of the city were never found, but we have been left with the testimony of Ulrico Schmidl, the first historian of the River Plate. A section of the old Zanjon was found under a historical XIX century building which extended over the whole square. Other sections of the Zanjón were unearthed including the ruin of foundations, old walls, floors, water wells, sewage pits, which were built and destroyed between 1730 and 1865.
According to the Buenos Aires Heritage Guide edited by the city council, El Zanjón offers a fascinating and unusual glimpse into five centuries of urban archaeology. Visitors to this destination in the historic San Telmo district travel back in time as they descend from a beautifully restored 1830s house into other architectural elements such a spectacular labyrinth of wide vaulted brick tunnels that had been buried for over one hundred years. The residence was originally a mansion; it had decayed into a tenement by the early 20th century. Now that renovations are complete, elegant new steel and glass elevators transport visitors to and from the illuminated depths of El Zanjón. We unearthed the archaeological past and also its memory and framed it with such detail that it constitutes by itself a work of art...
Casa Mínima: The recently restored narrowest house of the city could only be admired from the outside for decades, today it will whisper stories that can be listened to within the romantic walls of its centuries-old patio. Casa Minima, the narrowest house in BA (7.5 ft. / 2.3 m wide), which was a part of a larger house, has retained its original materials from the early XIX century. The small house, with its display of clay walls and two-hundred-year-old plaster, beckons us to visit this corner. Here the ghosts of early traditions of Buenos Aires intermingle with the myth of the emancipated slave.

Touring the Hall, the Main Foyer, the Gallery of Busts and the Golden Hall, visitors can absorb amazing details about the architecture, the stairs, their sculptures, ceilings or vitreous during the 50 minute visit. Its rich and prestigious history and its exceptional acoustics and architectural features rank it among theatres such as Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Paris Opera House, the Vienna State Opera, the Royal Opera House in London, and the Metropolitan Opera House in New York.

Eva Perón is one of our country’s most famous personalities, respected and admired all over the world because of her relentless efforts for the cause of the humble and underprivileged. In Argentina, nevertheless, her figure is rather controversial: loved by the working class, whom she generously aided during her brief but intense political career, and hated by the wealthier classes, with whom she had an ardent dispute, nonetheless, she never arouses indifference.
We’ll depart from Retiro Railway Station, where a very young Eva Perón saw Buenos Aires for the first time. Then, we’ll visit Plaza de Mayo, where we’ll admire the famous balcony of the Pink House from where, already married to General Perón, she delivered her most famous speeches, addressed to the Argentine workers who idolized her.
Next, we’ll visit the former building of the Eva Perón Foundation, an institution created by Evita to promote social assistance all over the country. Then we visit the CGT (which links together all the unions in the country), where we’ll learn about the peculiar alliances that were formed to bring Perón to the presidency. Next we see the Congress, and once in Recoleta, we visit the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Pillar, where Eva and Perón were married. Then we’ll walk across the Recoleta Cemetery, an enormous labyrinth of splendid funeral monuments, and a traditional stronghold of the Argentine aristocracy, where we’ll witness Evita’s posthumous victory over the people who had unceasingly fought her when she was alive.
Ending our tour, we’ll travel to Palermo, where we’ll visit the Evita Museum, inaugurated for the 50th anniversary of her death. We’ll enjoy a coffee in the museum restaurant.

Architectonically speaking, Buenos Aires is one of the most fascinating cities in Latin America; its eclecticism is a sign of the cultural synthesis that historically shaped Argentina’s national spirit. This exciting and educational journey will allow us to get a glimpse of the city’s rich history through its buildings.
Our starting point is naturally Plaza de Mayo, where we observe the most conspicuous of Buenos Aires’ Colonial buildings: the Cabildo, primitive town hall. We also admire the neoclassical Metropolitan Cathedral, and our Presidential Palace, known as the Pink House, with its peculiar asymmetrical façade. Finally, we trace the tracks of Monumentalism, a school so dear to Fascism, visible in the Ministry of Economics building.
Next, we walk across Avenida de Mayo, a tree-lined boulevard built in the late 19th century, when Paris was undisputedly the centre of the world. Alongside the Avenue, many different-styled buildings were erected –Academicist, Borbonic, Italian, Neo Baroque, Art-Nouveau and Art Déco, among other styles. Some of the buildings we’ll be seeing in more details are, among others, La Prensa, nowadays the House of Culture; the Vera Palace; the traditional Hotel Castelar; and the monumental Barolo Palace, inspired on Dante’s Divine Comedy. At the other end of the avenue lies the Congress, and the traditional El Molino tearoom.
Next, we head for Puerto Madero, a cutting-edge urban renovation project initiated in 1991, which finally integrates the city to the river. First, a series of silos and cereal deposits located in the docks of a huge abandoned port district were recycled into upscale residential buildings, trendy restaurants and VIP nightclubs. Nowadays, Puerto Madero has become a sort of international district, concentrating the most ambitious real estate and hotel investments. Here, we’ll stop at an area known as ‘Little Manhattan’, which concentrates a handful of state-of-the-art, intelligent buildings created by the greatest Argentine architects, such as César Pelli and Mario Roberto Álvarez. Before we leave, we’ll see the Woman’s Bridge, created by Spanish genius Santiago Calatrava.
On our way to Recoleta, we’ll pass along the impressive Tribunals building, a patent example of the early 20th century Academicist style, built by French architect Norbert Mallard, the Colón Theatre, one of the city’s greatest attractions, and the Cervantes National Theatre, a Renaissance building with Plateresque columns. Then, we’ll visit Plaza San Martín, designed by French-Argentine landscape architect Charles Thays. Around the square lie some of the city’s most conspicuous buildings: the former Palacio Paz, nowadays the Military Society, and the Kavanagh Building, South America’s first skyscraper, among others.
Once in Recoleta, we’ll visit the namesake Cemetery, one of Buenos Aires’ greatest attractions. Inaugurated in 1822, this true labyrinth of funeral monuments commissioned to some of the greatest artists of the last two centuries is the eternal home of the most conspicuous –and wealthy– figures in Argentine history, paradoxically including Eva Perón, who was a known enemy of the upper classes. Next to the Cemetery, we visit the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Pillar, a Colonial church built in 1732 that is surprisingly well preserved. We then walk across Alvear Avenue, where we observe the sumptuous palaces built by the Argentine aristocracy to rival with Paris, such as the Ortíz Basualdo palace. After seeing the imposing neoclassical mass of Buenos Aires Law School, on Figueroa Alcorta Avenue, we’ll visit the peculiar Sanitation building, with its strange majolica façade, built in 1887. This strange French Renaissance palace was built entirely from detachable pieces.
Observations: Lunch is not included, can be added with 2 hours extension. This itinerary can be complemented with other city attractions, on request.

Some of our guests want their trip to Argentina to be a unique art itinerary where they can discover different local expressions and be close to their authors.
