Full description
Buenos Aires should be enjoyed from different angles, and this half-day sightseeing tour is designed to do just that. The combined coach and walking tour encompasses the best sights the City of Tango has to offer.

Start with the city’s symbolic Obelisk, erected in 1936 to commemorate Buenos Aires 400th anniversary. See colonial Spanish squares, such as Plaza de Mayo, Plaza San Martín, and Plaza del Congreso, home to the large-domed Palacio del Congreso.

Travel down impressive Avenida Corrientes, leafy Avenida de Mayo, and the vast Avenida 9 de Julio. Explore commercial areas of Buenos Aires and discover Argentina’s favorite past-time at numerous soccer stadiums throughout the city.

You will go to colorful neighborhoods to give you a more local feel for the city. See the brightly-painted houses of La Boca, first settled by Italian immigrants, explore the home of tango in bohemian San Telmo, and see the city’s first barrio at Montserrat.

Discover a more sophisticated side to Buenos Aires in the upscale areas of Palermo and Recoleta, and get a feel for urban nature at leafy Lezama Park and landscaped Tres de Febrero Park.
