Dine on mouth-watering cuisine in Buenos Aires and Mendoza while Discovering the architectural marvels of Argentina’s capital city on privately guided tours.

Day 1: Here we Go!

For your added comfort, an English-speaking guide will be awaiting your arrival outside of Customs with personalized signage. Your representative will then lead you to your private driver and accompany you to your accommodation.

Parrillas are Argentine steakhouses offering the most traditional Buenos Aires cuisine, but most visitors only ever experience the most ‘touristy’ ones, sadly missing out on some of the city’s most delicious secrets. To taste authentic Porteño flavors (a Porteño is a native of Buenos Aires), join this culinary walking tour, accompanied by a private guide, to discover local hole-in-the wall restaurants and learn about Argentina’s culture and cuisine. Centered around the Las Cañitas section of Palermo – a chic neighborhood known for its beautiful tree lined avenues, historic polo fields, and burgeoning culinary and nightlife scene – you begin at a classic parrilla, usually frequented by soccer fans, and known for its choripan. Next, visit a Northern Argentine style casa de empanadas to try some of the city’s favorite handmade empanadas and a glass of Torrontés wine, before moving on to enjoy some of the best meat and service in the city at a historic and hidden parrilla, famous among locals. To complete a delightful and delicious afternoon you end up at an incredible artisan “heladeria” (ice cream shop).

Day 2: See the Signature Sights in Style

Architecturally speaking, Buenos Aires is one of the most fascinating cities in Latin America. Meet your private guide and transportation at your hotel for an exciting and educational journey, allowing you to get a glimpse of the city’s rich history through its buildings. You’ll begin at Plaza de Mayo, where you’ll observe the most conspicuous of Buenos Aires’ Colonial buildings: the Cabildo, a primitive town hall. Admire the neoclassical Metropolitan Cathedral, and the Presidential Palace, known as the Pink House, with its peculiar asymmetrical façade. Finally, we trace the tracks of Monumentalism, a school so dear to Fascism, visible in the Ministry of Economics building. Next you’ll walk across Avenida de Mayo to see the monumental Barolo Palace and Congress. You will then head for Puerto Madero, a cutting-edge urban renovation project initiated in 1991, where you will focus on an area known as ‘Little Manhattan’, which concentrates a handful of state-of-the-art, intelligent buildings created by the greatest Argentine architects, such as César Pelli and Mario Roberto Alvarez. Next, enjoy a guided tour of Teatro Colon, an incredible opera house that is considered to be one of the best venues in the world, then make your way to Plaza San Martin, location of South America’s first skyscraper. Continue to Recoleta, featuring the great Recoleta Cemetery, and a Colonial church built in 1732.

Buenos Aires may well be the best place in the world to catch an exclusive tango show, and the nightly performance at Café de Los Angelitos may well be the best in the city. This evening, enjoy a special night out as you are picked up from your hotel by a private driver and a bilingual guide, setting out for Café de Los Angelitos. Take in an intimate tango performance led by local dancers, all while enjoying a gourmet dinner consisting of grilled local meats, international dishes and excellent Argentinian wines. A sensory experience capturing the essence of Buenos Aires tango and gastronomy - this will be a night to remember.

Day 3: Explore with an Expert

Embark on an exploration of magnificent San Telmo and La Boca, two of Buenos Aires' most beloved neighborhoods. San Telmo is without question one of the trendiest quarters of the city thanks to its cool, bohemian atmosphere and famed antique shops. Plaza Dorrego is the place to be on Sundays to find anything from antiques, memorabilia, second-hand clothes to dusty magazines during its traditional Antiques Fair. Next, set out to experience La Boca, arguably one of the city's most authentic neighborhoods. La Boca's history was largely shaped by immigrants who established themselves within this gritty port-side barrio. A working-class district, La Boca has jealously guarded its identity, of which soccer and tango are major ingredients. What will strike you immediately is the peculiar architecture, especially along Caminito Street, which in 1959 was declared an outdoor museum. It is the work of one of Argentina’s most famous painters and neighborhood philanthropists, Quinquela Martín. He gathered neighbors to paint the houses, made out of tin and scrap metal, in bright colors, emulating the early immigrants. The most recognizable icon, though, is La Bombonera (the Chocolate Box), right in the heart of the area and home of the Boca Juniors, the country’s largest soccer club.

Day 5: Of Vineyards and Vintages

Enjoy a full day exclusive tour to three of the most important wineries of the region, Bodega Catena Zapata, Ruca Malen Winery and Achaval Ferrer Winery.

Bodega Catena Zapata is widely recognized for its revolutionary owner and wine-maker Nicolás Catena. He is known for introducing to the international wine community the true potential and quality of the Mendoza terrain. Argentina produces world-class wines, thanks to the Malbec grape in general and the wines of Nicolás Catena in particular.

Continue on a private visit to Bodega Ruca Malen, exclusively focused on making wines of excellence, based on their knowledge and above all, their passion for winemaking. The bodega visit will take you through the vineyards and sorting machines to the fermentation and aging rooms, offering an intimate glimpse into the wine making process from grape to bottle.

Achaval-Ferrer is a collection of old vineyards in beautiful places. They are committed to the production of wines that are expressive of their territory. They are a small winery because this is the key to top quality. Low yields allow the vineyards to express their personality in the grapes. Low intervention winemaking allows the grapes to fully express their vineyard in the bottle. Each of their wines is a different expression of Malbec.

Enjoy a delicious lunch at either Ruca Malen or Ruca Malen Winery, the choice is yours.

Enjoy pre-arranged round-trip transfers with a private driver and English-speaking guide to the incredible Abrasado Los Toneles Wineris restaurant in Mendoza. 

Day 6: Taste and Tipple on a Vineyard Visit

On this tour, you will learn how the Zuccardi Family Winery produces its prestigious wines. Travelling through rural paved roads, you can appreciate farms, irrigation systems and the picket fences that surround the vineyards. Upon arrival, a winemaker will be waiting to walk with you through part of their farms and to lead a fun course where you will learn all about the culture of wine. At the end of the tour, you will visit the home where a delicious lunch awaits. After lunch, depart for a city tour of Mendoza. At the end of the tour, return to your hotel.
