Enjoy a city tour, beginning in Plaza de Mayo, and see the iconic balcony from which Eva Perón famously addressed the throngs of impassioned supporters. Visit local barrios and old tango districts such as Monserrat, San Telmo, and La Boca, a traditional quarter of brightly painted Italian family homes and restaurants.
Witness the busiest areas – Puerto Madero, Retiro, and Plaza San Martin. Explore the graceful neighborhood of Palermo where you can stroll through purple-blossomed parks, rose gardens and lakes among porteños playing sports, and visit the Recoleta district, one of the most fashionable parts of the city, which includes South America’s most opulent and extraordinary cemetery, the resting place of Eva Peron.
In the evening, enjoy the finest Argentine cuisine and fabulous Malbec wines, while watching the most authentic tango show in Buenos Aires, which features some of the best dancers in the world.
Mendoza Wine Tour
Fly to Mendoza, Argentina’s most famous wine-producing region. Many of the wineries here are located in the shadow of the Andes mountains, which makes for a picturesque backdrop to any wine tasting. Stay at Cavas Wine Lodge, situated in the countryside on the outskirts of the city. The area is packed with beautiful ‘bodegas’ (vineyards) producing world-class Malbec and Merlot wines.
Take your pick from a special program of activities and relish two days of winery visits and tastings, a picnic between the vines, and other activities of your choice such as rafting, bicycle rides, half-day horseback riding. You can visit the Fade Museum, or wander around Mendoza, a lively desert town of wide, leafy avenues, atmospheric plazas and cosmopolitan cafes, situated to the east of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere. After this, you will return to Buenos Aires for more exploration of the city.
