Buenos Aires Tour and Boat Trip with Lunch
When making your booking, you can choose either of the following options:
If you choose this option, after collecting you from your hotel, we will set off on our panoramic tour of Buenos Aires. For four hours we will explore Argentina's capital city and discover its history and monuments.
We start in the north part of the city, in the neighbourhoods of Retiro, Palermo, and Recoleta. While we move along the elegant avenues and through its green parklands, we will admire the French style mansions, dating back to the beginning of the 20th and which lend this area a European ambience.
The tour continues around the centre of Buenos Aires, where we will discover the Colon theatre and the Obelisk, erected in 1936 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the founding of Buenos Aires. We will make stops at Plaza de Mayo (May Square) to admire the Casa Rosada which houses the presidential offices, the City Hall, and the Metropolitan Cathedral.
Our route continues, heading to the south of the city. In the district of San Telmo, the birthplace of Tango, we will delve into the world of this emblematic style of music. Then we will walk around the working class neighbourhood of La Boca, where we will encounter the famous "La Bombonera" stadium, home to Boca Juniors football club. We will also stroll down the picture postcard Caminito, one of the most recognizable streets in the world.
After, we head to Puerto Madero, where we will catch a boat that will take us on a delightful cruise around the River Plate. From the deck, you will enjoy panoramic views of the city while hearing all about the sights we are passing, thanks to the English language audioguide. During the boat trip, you will have a tasty traditional three-course lunch.
When the tour has finished, we will return to the port in Buenos Aires.
If you prefer, you can discover Buenos Aires in more detail, spending an extra hour on the tour.
In this case, we'll take you to visit the Floralis Genérica sculpture, and when we go to Recoleta, we'll visit Eva Perón's grave and the Nuestra Señora de Luján church, we'll enter the Baires gallery, and we'll see inside the Metropolitan Cathedral, plus we'll spend 30 minutes walking along the famous Caminito street in the La Boca neighbourhood.
After the tour, just like with the 4 hour tour, we'll take you to the Puerto Madero port so that you can enjoy a boat ride while you savour a delicious lunch.
The menu offered on board the cruise consists of a starter, a main course, and dessert (drink not included).
If you have some type of allergy or special dietary requirements, please notify us when making the reservation.
