Excellent activity! the tour guide was the wife of Eduardo de Pedro, who was very sympathetic and entertaining at all times. We visited locations such as San Jose de Lulles, Famailla', El Mollar, and Tafi del Valle, having Yungas vegetation as well as the small one. What has been so impacting is the Thematic Park of Famailla, a recreation that is so meaningful for the Independende declaration. We ate traditional empanadas tucumanas and the dessert was dulce de cayota with cheese and nuts.

Argentina Independence Tour

After picking you up at 8:30 from your hotel in Tucumán, we will head to the Miguel Lillo Natural Science Museum (entrance fee not included) to learn about the wonderful nature and geography of the province of Tucumán. In the exhibition, you will see a variety of amazing dinosaur fossils which were discovered in the region. We will also learn about animals that originally were native to Argentina but now currently live in other parts of the world too.

Our guided tour continues, visiting the nearby Casa Belgraniana, the former home of General Manuel Belgrano. Inside the elegant building, you will learn all about the battle of Tucumán. This battle, in which General Belgrano participated, is one of the key events in Argentina's War of Independence. The armed conflict caused numerous vital political changes which you will hear all about on your trip.

After exploring Belgraniana House, and discovering all about its eminent inhabitant, we will board our vehicle and head to Ingenio San Pablo, to discover its sugar-producing tradition, then Villa Nougués and San Javier Hill. At the top, you will encounter the great sculpture of the Cristo Bendicente, from where you will have fantastic panoramic views of San Miguel de Tucumán.

The tour then continues around the Yerba Buena residential area, and back in the centre of Tucumán, we will make a stop to taste some delicious local empanadas accompanied by a glass of wine. On our way back to the city, we will take a panoramic tour of the residential district of Yerba Buena and the surroundings of 9 July Park and the Casa Obispo Colombres Sugar Industry Museum.

Our tour concludes at the magnificent Plaza de la Independencia square, where we will take a walking tour to appreciate the grand monumental legacy which surrounds it: the Government House, the Cathedral and, of course, the Casa Histórica (Historical House) where Argentinian Independence was proclaimed on July 9, 1816.

The tour ends at 3:30 pm, back at your hotel.
