What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel, set out to explore Buenos Aires’ colourful neighborhoods, starting with a drive through Palermo and Recoleta. Stop to see the Floralis Genérica, a gigantic flower sculpture that opens and closes at dawn and dusk; admire the beautiful rose garden in the Palermo Woods, and stroll around the moving Parque de la Memoria. Learn more about Argentina’s turbulent history as you visit Recoleta Cemetery, home to the grave of Eva Peron (Evita), among many other notable celebrities and politicians, and see the Casa Rosada on Plaza De Mayo. Continue into San Telmo, home to many of the city’s tango clubs, and La Boca, where the brightly painted houses of Caminito Street make a striking backdrop for a photo. After a detour through the modern waterfront district of Puerto Madero, drive along 9 de Julio Avenue, the widest avenue in the world, to reach the grand Plaza del Congreso, home to the Congress Building. Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel or a central location of your choosing.

Our tour guide waited patiently for us to clear Customs - a very long queue. Once we were thru Customs, we were off on a great tour of the City. The Park of Memories was especially touching - history from the 70’s and 80’s that many would like to forget. That said, it’s very
