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-style Metropolitan Cathedral, the final home of Argentina’s founding father, José de San Martín. 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 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 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 visit 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 the 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.
Suggested Optional (Not included - In addition): Surprise Snacks Stop in La Boca Balcony Regular Service (Shared Venue) | Includes Tapas-style finger food snack & vermú or a glass of wine or beer. It can be replaced for coffee and pastries according to time of the day, upon request.
Enjoy a refreshment stop in an authentic spot in La Boca! El Gran Paraíso is a tenement house dating back to 1890, construction of veneers and old wood that preserves its original style. You can visit the rooms on the upper floor, enjoying a wonderful view of Caminito. It's a trip through time, its part of our history.
Observations: The restaurant opens every day at around 11:00 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. Catena Zapata, Mendel Wines, Bodega Kaiken, Corazón del Sol, Finca Suárez, etc. You can enjoy wine by bottle or by glass, as rotates constantly. If 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 omelette.
Observations: Closed on Sundays. Working hours depend on the season, but likely from 11:00 AM to 07:00 PM.
> Suggested Optional (Not included - In addition): Stop for choripan & beer in San Telmo Food Market Regular Service (Shared Venue) | Includes 1 Choripan + 1 Beer or soft drink in one of the Market stands. Preferably from Wednesday to Sunday.
Enjoy a savoury stop at the traditional market of San Telmo, to have a choripan (sausage in a bun) with a glass of cold beer or soft drink. Why San Telmo Market? This large indoor market has stalls offering everything from antiques to fresh fruit and spices. With a typically Italian facade and large interior spaces, the Mercado de San Telmo opened in 1897 to cater to the needs of the new wave of immigrants arriving from Europe. The stalls have since been updated but the internal structure of the market remains the same, with metal columns and beams, so stepping inside is still like stepping back in time. The building was declared a National Historic Monument in the year 2000. There are stalls selling food, antiques, crafts, records, and toys, making for an eclectic mix. The Coffee Town stall is known for having some of the best coffee in the city.
Observations: Even though the Market is open every day, some stands only open during weekends while others remain closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. If needed, the stop can be done in a different traditional spot in San Telmo, the same if the market is too crowded. Market formal working hours: Monday to Friday from 10:30 AM to 09:00 PM | Weekends from 09:00 AM to 08:00 PM (Liable to updates).
Enjoy a night out in your Hotel!

Step off the beaten path and discover Mendoza through its food! Eating like a local is an important aspect of getting an accurate look at a culture. Private transportation to Uco Valley, and arrival to Clos de Los Siete. Once there, we will head to DiamAndes Winery. DiamAndes is part of the Clos de siete. Clos de Los Siete is the result of a venture undertaken by a group of French winegrowers. It is located at the foot of the Andes mountain range, in the heart of the Uco Valley, in the district of Vista Flores, Tunuyán. Their vineyards spread across 850 hectares (2100 acres) at an altitude of 1,000-1,200 masl. In 2005, the Bonnie family, owner of many renowned Châteaus, decided to leave France in search of new horizons in the world of wine. It all began with the acquisition, along with their partners, of a single 130-hectares (321 acres) block of land in the heart of the Uco Valley, to the south of the city of Mendoza. That is where DiamAndes was born, as a member of the prestigious Clos de Los Siete group. The winery’s architectural design blends harmoniously into the stunning Andean scenery. The name DiamAndes is a pun on the words “diamante” (Spanish for “diamond”) and “Andes” (the name of the mountains that provide a background to the estate). Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie came up with it one day as he was enjoying a barbecue at Laguna del Diamante, in Mendoza. The reflection of the Maipo volcano on the lake made him associate the two words. Upon arrival, reception with a glass of wine and tour through the winery, after a short introduction about the winery, the Bonnie family, and all the history of this place. After the visit you will be introduced to the recognized Chef Santiago Orozco, who with his natural charm will accompany you in this Cooking Class experience, you will prepare a traditional menu: barbecue and grill food, empanadas, and dessert, you also will receive a recipe book from the prepared menu and a souvenir apron.

Here we will enjoy nature harmonized with the tasting of wines made with love for work, care for the land, and, above all, a lot of passion and patience. We continue towards Zuccardi Piedra Infinita in the Uco Valley, which is a tribute to the austere and solemn mountain that defines the climate and soils of the region. The construction "emerges" from the ground and really "belongs" to it because it is made with natural elements: limestone and local, white concrete. Imposing stone walls and concrete tanks protect the wines. Here we will make a visit with a tasting of Zuccardi wines. Each line of wine represents a concept, a belief, a tribute, and a faithful expression of the vine where the grape was born.
