Buenos Aires:
Enjoy your Morning City Tour of Buenos Aires, a perfect introduction to South America's most elegant capital city. The tour begins with a drive along 9th of July Avenue, with its 8 lanes, the widest avenue in the world. In the middle of the avenue is the Obelisk. A symbol of the city, it was built in 1936 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of the city. Another landmark is the Colon Theatre, the city's famous opera house. Continue to the historic center, to the Plaza de Mayo, a lovely plaza with flower gardens and tall palm trees; the scene of many of the city's historic political events. Surrounding the plaza are colonial buildings of interest: the Casa Rosada, the seat of the executive branch of the government; the Cabildo with its historic museum; the Metropolitan Cathedral, which holds the tomb of General Jose de San Martin, the father of Argentine independence. No tour would be complete without a visit to the picturesque La Boca district. You will see Caminito Street, famous for its colorful houses. Continue to San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Originally a center for immigrant settlers, it is a neighborhood of colonial houses, cobblestone streets, and antique shops. The tour passes the developing new district of Puerto of Madero, and continues through Palermo where the Zoo, Botanical Garden, Palermo Woods, the National Polo Field, and the Planetarium are located. On the way back, we will visit another residential area, the sophisticated district of Recoleta, with its restaurants, coffee shops, nightclubs and boutiques. We will visit the famous Recoleta Cemetery with its ornate memorials, including the tomb of Eva Peron.

Buenos Aires:
Spend the day at leisure exploring the city, or arrange an optional tour. What better way to spend an evening in Buenos Aires than with this city’s quintessential music? Tango is the music of Buenos Aires par excellence. Its origin can be traced back to 1880 to the slums inhabited by Italian and Spanish immigrants, Africans, and gauchos. Despite its humble origins, in the 1920s tango moved into the high-class ballrooms. To feel its spirit, visit one of the restaurants that offer a high-quality tango show, and enjoy the sensual magnetism of tango performed by some of the best dancers, singers and musicians in Buenos Aires. You will be picked up at your hotel and taken to one of the typical tango houses in the San Telmo, the neighborhood of tango. Dinner will be Argentine specialties including good Argentine wine. After dinner, enjoy a fabulous tango show. After the show (around midnight), return transportation is provided to your hotel.
