Buenos Aires is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest cities to visit and an important destination on many of our Argentina tours.

While here you can indulge in all its culture and cosmopolitan comforts and explore its different districts such as La Boca and the charming cobbled alleys of San Telmo.

Buenos Aires city tour with La Boca

Enjoy a fascinating half-day private tour of the elegant turn-of-the-century districts that earned Buenos Aires the sobriquet of the Paris of South America. Including a trip to La Boca district in the South and then north to San Telmo. Along to the Plaza de Mayo, up the leafy Avenida de Mayo towards the imposing Palace of Congress and then on to the historically fascinating Recoleta Cemetery.

Rojo Tango Show with dinner

Enjoy the best Tango Show in town, set in the exclusive environs of the Faena Hotel. The Rojo tango is the smallest and most stylish of tango salons. Your evening includes a three course dinner, wine, and transfers to and from the venue.

Days 3–5

Two nights in El Calafate exploring the nearby Glacier Region

It’s up to you how you want to spend your time in El Calafate, Argentina’s Glacier Region, and we can organise several private or shared tours according to your interests and time should you like to. This area has some stunning wildlife for the keen eye to discover, as well as its beautiful glaciers.

Explore Argentina's glacier region

This is a full day’s tour of the magnificent Perito Moreno National Park and its humbling glacier complete with a private 4WD vehicle and one of our expert guides. Take a scenic drive through the National Park followed and then take a walk along the built-in walkways facing the glacier. There are various optional additions to this tour such as the nautical boat safari, minitrekking or Big Ice trekking. Talk to your travel designer about your individual preferences.

Days 5–8

Three nights in the Lake District

The Argentine Lake District is a beautiful, picture-postcard region of snow capped peaks, forested slopes, crystalline lakes and rivers. A stop here adds a wonderfully tranquil dimension to any of our Argentina tours. This is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors with all manner of outdoor activities possible including hiking, mountain biking, fishing, golf, horse riding, kayaking, mountaineering and rafting.

Exploring the Lake District

A private and scenic full-day tour

Begin your day with a scenic road transfer to the Limay River, through downtown Bariloche and along gravel roads to Villa Traful, your first stop. Take in the magnificent, panoramic views while your guide explains the natural history of the area and answers any questions you may have. Next you’ll reach Villa La Angostura where you’ll take lunch (either at a local restaurant or picnic at an isolated beach or lookout point). In the afternoon, you will return to your hotel via the lakeshore road that follows the contour of the Nahuel Huapi Lake, and once again offering some stunning panoramas along the way. Your excursion today will involve some walking so be sure to wear comfortable footwear.
