Why we love Argentina

The land of estancias and gauchos, Argentina is famed for its horse riding, steaks with chimichurri and delicious red wine. However, dig deeper and you will find an intense and seductive land of great diversity in landscapes, climates and cultures alike.

Itinerary


Take an overnight flight from the UK to Buenos Aires.

 


Land in Buenos Aires and settle into your hotel before you enjoy some free time to explore this vibrant capital. Your Tour Leader will be happy to help you with some recommendations!


It’s no wonder that Buenos Aires is nicknamed the Paris of South America – this city lives and breathes its history, and is architecturally one of Latin America’s most elegant cities. Enjoy a city tour of the landmarks that make the capital such a captivating place.

  • Local Experience – Dinner and Tango Show at El Aljibe
    Surrender to Buenos Aires’ magical sounds, culture and gastronomy with a live show of tango, music and delicious food! The venue is a typical early-20th century house and the ideal stage for a true Porteño show – 15 artists, a tango orchestra, folk music group, dancers and singers.
  • Active Experience – Palaces Bike Tour
    This is a city tour with a difference! Perfect if you love history, architecture and travelling around a city by bike. You will visit charming buildings and lesser-known monuments that are not usually visited in the traditional tourist routes.
  • Cultural Experience – Antiques and Colonial  San Telmo
    San Telmo is the oldest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires and is well worth visiting with a guide, to learn about its history and cultural influences in depth. The tour explores this romantic district and is a wonderful opportunity to buy a piece of Buenos Aires’ history in one of its charming antique shops, or to just sit and enjoy a drink in the famous Plaza Dorrego.
