Argentine Classics


From the bustling capital of Buenos Aires, to the striking glaciers of El Calafate in Patagonia and the lush rainforest of Iguazu Falls, discover Argentina’s must-see destinations!


Welcome to vibrant Buenos Aires!
Your private English-speaking driver will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel in the heart of the Recoleta neighborhood.

Today you’ll discover the city during a private tour! Your private English-speaking guide will meet you at your hotel and take you to a café to start the day. You’ll briefly learn about Buenos Aires before taking the city by storm.

First stop, the famous Plaza de Mayo, across from the Casa Rosada, the Argentine White House.

Your next stop is at El Zanjón. From the mansion’s exterior you’d never guess what’s hidden below! After falling into near ruin, the building was bought by a private family who, during renovations, discovered tunnels that snake underneath the square; many historians consider the Zanjón as the site of the first settlement of Buenos Aires in 1536. During the tour you’ll see artifacts and images of life in the city over the centuries. Your driver will take you back to your hotel in Recoleta after the visit.

Day 9: IGUAZU: Brazilian Waterfalls

Remember your passport, as today you’ll be crossing the border to see the magnificent waterfalls from the Brazilian side. Bring your camera, too, as you’ll soon understand why Eleanor Roosevelt exclaimed, “Poor Niagara!” when she first laid eyes on Iguazu’s almost 300 waterfalls, rising as high as 265 feet!
You’ll then head to Parque das Aves, a bird rescue and conservation center. You’ll see over 1,400 birds – over 150 different species, many endangered – that hail from all four corners of Brazil, and from all over the world. The park has three immersion aviaries and a butterfly house, where you’ll find yourself face to face with these amazing animals.

Day 11: BUENOS AIRES: Tigre Delta

20 miles outside of bustling Buenos Aires is Tigre, a little village on the banks of the Rio de la Plata delta. Today you’ll explore the “Argentine Venice,” a favorite spot for locals to relax outside of the city.
This morning your private driver will take you to Tigre. Along the way, you’ll stop at San Isidro, a charming little town on the banks of the Rio de la Plata, the river separating Argentina and Uruguay. You’ll take a stroll around town, visiting the 18th century church before continuing on to Tigre. The route is picturesque, with lush vegetation and beautiful flowering trees.
Once in Tigre, you can visit various museums; we’d suggest the National Naval Museum that retraces the history of the Argentine Navy, from the first Spanish boats to the latest technology.

Your driver will then take you to the Puerto de Frutos, a lively port brimming with restaurants and small boutiques selling typical local goods. Take your time to explore the area before stopping for lunch.
After a delicious local lunch, you’ll go to the port to board a private boat to discover the canals of the Tigre Delta and its characteristic houses on stilts! You’ll reach the Rio de la Plata, offering two strikingly different viewpoints: the river stretching out to your left and the Buenos Aires Bay – the Samborombon Bay – to your right. During your boat ride you’ll see some of the famous landmarks of the city, like the airport and the River Plate stadium.
You’ll disembark at the docks of Puerto Madero and meet your driver to head back to your hotel.

In the evening, you’ll meet your driver to go to an exclusive, closed-door asado restaurant for an authentic Argentine dinner! The asado barbecue is part of the foundation of Argentine cuisine, a meal traditionally shared with friends on Saturdays, with family on Sundays, and with colleagues on Fridays!

The restaurant you’ll discover tonight is not your everyday steak house… while many a meat lover would cross oceans and move mountains to enjoy a true Argentine steak, few travelers have the opportunity to participate in a true, bona fide asado dinner, complete with its rituals and traditions. Here, you’ll learn about the various cuts of meat, the cooking techniques and, most importantly, you’ll savor a delectable five-course meal including:
– A welcome picada, a meat and cheese board with local products
– A confit tomato salad with apples and honey-mustard vinaigrette
– Achuras, an assortment of perfectly grilled meat served with local Argentine sauces
– A prime, 12 oz steak served with roasted vegetables
– Cheesecake with the typical Dulce de Leche, whipped cream and confit orange peels.
Each course comes with a wine pairing, with bottles hailing from small vineyards from the four corners of the country.
After dinner, your driver will take you back to your hotel for a well-deserved night’s rest!

Lunch and dinner included. Night and breakfast at your elegant four-star hotel in Buenos Aires.


Enjoy your last few hours in the Argentine capital to pick up some last-minute souvenirs or take in the sights and sounds of the city before your driver takes you to the airport for your return flight to the US.
Buen viaje!
