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. Being the capital of the country makes it the starting point for most of the Argentinean Experiences. 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 Full Day Sightseeing Experience with picnic lunch in the Park Private Service (Personalized) | Vehicle & English-speaking guide | Duration: Full Day (6 hours) | Picnic lunch in the Park (1 Basket every 2 guests, soft drinks and full setup included) | Mineral water on board. The itinerary is liable to updates to provide better service according to the day, and inclusions agreed for the 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.

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 then head for San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. It used to be the residential district favored 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 neighborhood 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.

Leaving San Telmo behind, we’ll continue southwards to La Boca, one of the city’s most authentic and charming neighborhoods. 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 color, and the Tangoesque atmosphere.

At last, we`ll pass through Puerto Madero, the latest addition to the city’s barrios. In 1991, its huge warehouses and silos were remodeled 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 will then head towards the northern part of the city. 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. In the park, a nice setting will be waiting for us with a delicious picnic lunch to enjoy in the fresh air.Observations: Daily Departures to be agreed. This tour can be customized upon request, according to guest´s interest (Art, F&B, Shopping, etc).

Well inside the first mountainsides of the Andes´ foothills, this valley presents the highest altitudes at which wines are produced in Mendoza.

Our first ride will be to Gimenez Rilli winery. Founded in 1945, it is a winery that has represented excellence in winemaking for many years, combining Argentine passion with its family traditions. This cozy winery is run by two generations, father and children, one of whom are Pablo Giménez Riili, co-founder of The Vines of Mendoza. Here you will enjoy a day full of memorable experiences.

region: DiamAndes. This project began in 2005 when Bonnie family, highly recognized in France, acquired the 130-hectare
property in the Uco Valley. A special company was born that owes its name to a combination of the words "Diamante" and
"Andes" and since the 2007 harvest produces wines in exceptional conditions. Here you will have the pleasure of experiencing six steps harmonized with wines and enjoying the special landscape that characterizes the Uco Valley.

This epic adventure used to take at least a month and a half, and could only be attempted during the summer when the temperature changes are less extreme.

mountain range in 1919 and the lines finally met more than 35 years later at Socompa Pass near San Antonio de los Cobres.

It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in July
2003.
