Arrive into Buenos Aires where you will be met and driven to your hotel. The majority of Argentines are of European descent, mainly Italians. Indeed there’s a saying that an Argentinian is an Italian who speaks Spanish, thinks like the French but would secretly like to be British. European influences are prominent in the buildings and squares of the city.
City tour taking in some of the key places in Buenos Aires, including the Plaza de Mayo, San Telmo and La Boca before continuing to the Puerto Madero docklands which have undergone complete transformation into a thriving area of bars and restaurants. The tour ends at the elegant district of Recoleta. In the evening a tango show is included, with dinner.
Free day to explore Buenos Aires in your own time. If you would like us to book particular arrangements, such as tango classes, a football tour of La Bombanera (Boca Juniors) or El Monumental (River Plate), cycle rides, a Pope Francis tour, or a visit to the underground tunnels of Buenos Aires then please let us know.
