Day 1: Buenos Aires

Bienvenido! Welcome to Buenos Aires, Argentina’s lively capital city. You’ll be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel on arrival. With no activities planned for today, you are free to arrive at your accommodation at any time. With an intoxicating mix of Latin soul and European influences, beautiful Buenos Aires is a delight to explore. If you arrive with time to spare, why not head out to see the street murals of San Telmo, or visit Casa Rosada, the office of the president of Argentina. This evening, you may like to take part in an iconic Buenos Aires experience and watch a live tango show. One of the best spots in the city is Cafe Tortoni, an intimate venue that’s been open since 1858. Sit back with a Malbec, perhaps grab some dinner, and watch a passionate performance. This activity needs to be pre-booked so please enquire ahead of time.

Day 2: Buenos Aires

Rise and shine for a morning of exploring Buenos Aires. A local guide will collect you from your accommodation at 9am this morning, then your first stop is the Plaza de Mayo, the heart of the city and the place it was founded. Continue to Puerto Madero, a slick neighbourhood on the banks of the Rio de la Plata, then head to La Boca to learn of the importance of football in the city and the influence of the immigrant community. Next up is the creative neighbourhood of San Telmo where you’ll learn about the origins of tango, then visit the famous Recoleta Cemetery, where many notable people are buried. Return to your accommodation in the afternoon and enjoy some free time for your own discoveries. In the late afternoon/early evening head down to the hotel lobby where a transfer will be waiting to take you to dinner. Travel to the home of a Porteno (a resident of Buenos Aires) for a delicious barbecue dinner on their rooftop. Take in incredible views of the city and watch the sun go down while you chat to your friendly hosts and gain insight into everyday life in Buenos Aires. Tuck into classic dishes like provoleta, chimichurri, chocotorta and plenty of Argentine wine. The exact dinner timing will be provided in your welcome note.

Day 3: Buenos Aires

Your Buenos Aires adventure comes to an end after breakfast this morning. If you’re staying on in the city, there are plenty of galleries, museums and historic buildings to keep you entertained. The Museo Evita is dedicated to the life (and gowns) of former First Lady Eva Peron. MALBA is an incredible art gallery showcasing a private collection, including works by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, and great temporary exhibits.
