Full description

Experience the past and present of Buenos Aires, visiting neighborhoods, admiring architecture, and seeing the best attractions the city has to offer on this sightseeing tour.   The tour starts in the northern part of the city. Explore the neighborhoods of Retiro, Palermo and Recoleta, which are full of large green spaces and beautiful French-style mansions. Here, you’ll make your first stop: a 5-minute picture stop at Floralis Generica, a sculpture made out of steel and aluminum.   Then, stop for a half-hour tour of France Square. Pass by Colon Theater and the Obelisk to reach your third stop, Plaza de Mayo, where the city was born in 1580. Admire the Pink House, the Cabildo, and the Metropolitan Cathedral for about 20 minutes.   Continuing towards the south of the city, breathe in the air of tango in its hometown: San Telmo. You’ll also visit the neighborhoods of La Boca, where one of the most famous stadiums in the world is located: La Bombonera. In La Boca, you can also admire the colorful

conventillos (tenement houses), home to Italian immigrants at the end of the 19th century, as well as the picturesque street Caminito. Afterward, you can be dropped off at the meeting point or various other attractions. If the hotel pickup was selected, you can be taken back to your hotel.  If the option is chosen, at the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at Madero port, where lunch is included aboard Humberto M boat ( 2 empanadas, crepes espinaca or Portuguese Chiken with green rice, Swiss Bombón with red fruit sauce) ( the drink is not included).

Loved! Our guide Sofi was incredible! High energy, knowledgeable, and patient. She let us take our time and catered the tour to our interests. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to squeeze in as much site seeing in one day as possible (without feeling too rushed).

There were 5 English speaking, and 5 Spanish speaking on the tour. Franco spoke to both groups fluently and told us lots of interesting facts and we were taken to lots of places. He went out of his way to get my US dollars exchanged for pesos when I was unable to buy a drink as they wouldn't take us dollars or my debit card. He made sure to keep an eye on us all in busy places, as we all headed in different directions. A bit like herding cats, he did a great job
