Itinerary

Buenas dias! Welcome to Argentina. On arrival at either Buenos Aires' Ezeiza (international) or Aeroparque Jorge Newbery (domestic) airports, meet your transfer guide at the arrival’s hall and head to your centrally located hotel. Once you have checked into the hotel, the remainder of your first day will be free until a welcome meeting at around 6 pm. Buenos Aires is home to 11 million 'portenos', a name given to the locals that literally means 'residents of the port'. After your briefing, why not consider dining out at one of the city’s renowned asado restaurants – Argentinian barbecue is something to indulge in at least once.

Special Information
Please look for your transfer guide at the airport – they will be holding a sign with your name on it.

It’s very important that you attend the welcome meeting as we will be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this time. If you are going to be late please let your travel agent or hotel reception know. Ask reception or look for a note in the lobby for more information on where the meeting will take place.
Enjoy a morning exploring some of Buenos Aires’ most acclaimed sites with your local guide. First off is the Plaza de Mayo to visit the Cabildo – the city’s original town hall – as well as the presidential palace. Walk around La Boca and its Caminito district, before heading to the lesser-known Barracas neighbourhood for a group lunch at Iriarte Verde Work Cooperative – a local NGO where you’ll learn about their agroecological model of food production and community collaboration. Help prepare a meal – much of the ingredients for which are grown in the co-op’s own gardens – and then dine on the results, including shortbread-like alfajores for dessert. Walk off lunch on a stroll through the labyrinths of Recoleta Cemetery. After a stop at the grave of Eva Peron, head to Palermo to see beautiful parks designed by Carlos Thays and the unique Floralis Generica sculpture of a huge metal flower. Later, get ready to be captivated by Argentina’s most famous dance – the tango. In a private space, professional dancers will explain its origins and history, as well as demonstrate some moves. You’ll then be invited to join an hour-long beginner’s class to learn some of the basic techniques and find your own rhythm.
