Christmas in Buenos Aires

View Travel Guide for Buenos Aires

  • Private tour of Buenos Aires’ finest architectural and historical highlights.
  • Gourmet dinner & tango show at the city’s finest tango venue.
  • Celebrate Christmas in the enchanting city of Buenos Aires.

¡Hola, Argentina! Your private tour will introduce you to the heart of Buenos Aires’ culture, from the Casa Rosada government palace and the hustle and bustle of downtown Buenos Aires to the vibrant streets of La Boca, San Telmo and beyond. Make sure to keep an eye out for the unusual sight of a summery Father Christmas wearing shorts and a t-shirt. On Christmas Eve, restaurants in Buenos Aires usually offer fixed menus, accompanied by live music and excellent wine pairings which never fail to impress. After dinner and at the stroke of midnight, watch as the skies come alight with fireworks!

Iguazu Falls

View Travel Guide for Iguazu Falls

  • Private, up-close tours of Iguazu Falls in both Argentina and Brazil.
  • Incredible boat ride adventure through and around the waterfalls.
  • Optional 10 or 50 minute helicopter ride over Iguazu Falls.

Spend the last few days of 2017 in-style, diving straight into the action (not literally, unless you want to) at Argentina’s side of Iguazu Falls. Your guide will help you avoid crowds and take you to the most hidden of the 270 waterfalls. The Brazilian side of the falls is entirely different, and ends with an up-close encounter of the largest waterfall, Garganta del Diablo (or Devil’s Throat). Don’t let the name fool you; it’s paradise!
