Welcome to Buenos Aires

The first day of your trip will be spent in Buenos Aires. It will feature a little introduction to the city and your first bit of sightseeing on this ten-day trip.

For most travelers, Buenos Aires is the entry point to Argentina… and what an entrance it is: this vibrant city feels almost European! Its cosmopolitan population of Italian, Spanish, French, and many other nationalities, combined with stunning architecture, cultural activities and attractive neighborhoods with small shops, cafés, and international restaurants, make the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming.

Upon arrival, our local representative will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel. After settling into your accommodation in the trendy neighborhood of Palermo, the rest of your afternoon and evening is free for you to spend at your leisure. We recommend exploring the area near your hotel where you’ll be able to soak up the atmosphere of this thrilling city, stopping off at one of the nearby boutique cafés or lively wine bars.

Having found somewhere for dinner and experienced one of South America’s top restaurant scenes, explore Buenos Aires’ nightlife at one of the local wine bars in Palermo, add an exclusive wine tasting to your itinerary or, take a leisurely stroll back to your hotel.

Tip: Porteños eat dinner late; usually restaurants will open their doors around 20:00.

Day 2 - Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires like a local and tango

After your first day of sightseeing, your second day will be spent diving headfirst into the cultural festivities that Buenos Aires has to offer.

After breakfast, set off on a half-day walking tour with your own private guide, learning all about the history and culture of beautiful Buenos Aires. Your guide will be a real porteño (resident of the city), who knows every barrio like the back of his/her hand. Together, you’ll head off to explore some of the city’s historical hotspots, as well as some of the favorite local hangouts of your guides.

It’s a great mix of experiences thrown into one. Getting an inside glimpse of Buenos Aires, you’ll go far beyond the guidebooks and swerve the tourist crowds, allowing you to see a different side of the city. At times, you’ll take public transport to cover the larger distances, while most of the tour will be on foot. After a few hours with your personal guide, the tour will finish at one of his/her favorite restaurants, where you can grab a well-deserved bite to eat (lunch not included). It’s a brilliant way to get a peek into the real porteño way of life.

In the evening, you’ll experience the best of tango while enjoying the finest Argentine cuisine and fabulous Malbec wines during the show. The tango show is one of the most authentic in Buenos Aires and you’ll come to appreciate the passionate and intense nature of Argentina’s beloved and beautiful art form.

Depending on the time of your arrival and having settled into your cozy, countryside accommodation, the rest of the day is free for you to relax.
