Day 1 - Welcome to Buenos Aires

Welcome to Buenos Aires!

Elegant, old-worldly, with a touch of Paris here and a touch of London there, a dash of New York

cosmopolitanism and big splash of Italian exuberance, the city also has a strong Latin America personality as

well as uniquely Argentine elements such as tango bars. Here, everything is grand, on a scale fit for kings:

Tourists photograph vast steaks at restaurants, Nueve de Julio avenue ranks as the world's widest, a cemetery

so fancy that it occupies one of the poshest parts of the poshest neighborhood, while the entire city fronts onto

the world's widest river. Buenos Aires never fails to impress.


Explore the highlights of the 'Paris of South America' in a three hour city tour accompanied by one of our

experienced representatives who will introduce you to the history and culture of this magnificent city. The tour

will include the historical areas of Buenos Aires: Plaza de Mayo, the political heart of the city, laid out by Don

Juan de Garay in 1580 during the second founding of Buenos Aires. Continue to La Boca, the tough port barrio

and colorful working class area of Buenos Aires and finally Recoleta, where you will visit its world famous

cemetery and see the tombs of the most important personalities of the Argentine history.

Special Zodiac Dinner. 12 Course Meal, Wine and Non-alcoholic drink included.

chef, each course representing an astrological sign, learning about your relationship with food and drink.

A tasteful - and tasty - excuse to surprise yourself with fantastic dishes and wines, and have fun while learning a

little more about yourself. An astrologer will join us to answer all your questions and tell you which meals best

suit you. Are you ready to reveal the mystery? Under the full moon eclipse, be prepared to discover what the

as Vicente López, Olivos, and San Isidro, and past elegant homes of these residential suburbs, including the

Presidential Residence in Olivos, official home to Argentina's president.

water-crafts, including canoes and sailboats. A soft drink and snack are served while you enjoy the scenery.

Rejoin your vehicle when the river cruise ends and transfer back to your hotel.

Day 3 - The Pampas

A 90-minute drive north of Buenos Aires city leads guests San Antonio de Areco, a traditional gaucho town

whose colonial buildings are straight out of the 19th century. A place with history and tradition, this is where Don

Segundo Sombra, Argentina’s most famous literary gaucho, belongs. A picturesque town, this is the place to

discover the gaucho lifestyle and customs, particularly at Ricardo Güiraldes Gaucho Museum. It’s also home to

some of the best leather designers and silversmiths’ ateliers that produce regional wares from yerba mate

gourds to belts. November is the perfect time to visit San Antonio de Areco, when the town celebrates

Argentina’s Day of the Tradition for a week, culminating in a parade showcasing gauchos' skills on horseback as

well as folk music and dances.


Close to the town of San Antonio de Areco, La Bamba de Areco estancia is located in the heart of the pampas

on the banks of the Areco stream. La Bamba de Areco offers precisely what its Celtic name translates to; a

place to rest. A welcome drink and empanadas awaits, followed up by a range of activities such as equine and

folkloric demonstrations. Enjoy a barbecue lunch after which guests can relax by the swimming-pool, take a stroll

in the park, or go horseback-riding or cycling before a traditional English tea.
