Buenos Aires, Argentina’s elegant, historic and cosmopolitan capital, is known as the “Paris of the South” due to its European atmosphere with glamorous avenues lined with fashionable shops and Parisian-style restaurants and cafes. Located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata, Buenos Aires has many fascinating neighbourhoods to explore including the colourful and lively La Boca, home to art galleries and tango shows; San Telmo with its restored mansions and antique stores and Recoleta, the city’s most exclusive area.

Buenos Aires

Begin your day in the upscale neighbourhood of Recoleta with its elegant mansions and 5-star hotels. Start your walking tour along with your tour guide wandering to some noteworthy sites such as the Biblioteca Nacional (National Library), UBA (Law School) and the iconic steel and aluminium sculpture, Floralis Genérica. Continue south on Avenida Libertador towards the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Museum), which boasts a great collection of Argentine art. We will visit one of the iconic cemeteries in the world, Recoleta Cemetery, the final resting place for the most celebrated figures of Argentina, including Eva Peron (Evita). Enjoy a walk through the cemetery streets to admire its beautiful, designed mausoleums. After visiting the cemetery, stroll through Avenida Alvear, home to the many architectonical mansions built during the Belle Époque, which have helped give Buenos Aires its nickname, the Paris of South America. We will continue our walk on Avenida 9 de Julio, considered the widest avenue in the world and home to the iconic Obelisk, Argentina’s national monument. Then we will make our way to Plaza de Mayo, the historical city’s square. Here, you’ll enjoy the view of the most important and historical buildings, such as La Casa Rosada (Argentina’s presidential palace), the metropolitan cathedral where Pope Francis, as archbishop, used to perform mass before assuming office in the Vatican in 2013.

Buenos Aires Walking tour

This evening you will be collected from your hotel to experience a Tango Show with dinner at Aljibe Tango. Located in San Telmo, the venue is a restored conventillo (boarding house) and offers an intimate show featuring professional dancers and musicians. The show is accompanied by a traditional menu and Argentine wines. Due to the show commencing earlier than other venues, this is an ideal venue for families or those who want a taste of tango but not a late evening.

Dinner will be served from 7.00pm followed by the show commencing from 8.00pm. Please note timings are subject to change and will be confirmed directly to you. On completion of the show, you will be taken to your hotel. Please note this is a small group tour.

Chimu is passionate and dedicated to sustainability measures and understands the crucial part sustainability plays within the tourism industry.

We use local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprint. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting. Our guides are all highly qualified (most with university degrees) or equip with many years of experience and are paid above the standard wage. Whether it be our knowledgeable local guides, locally produced meals or the transport on tour, we do not use imported goods when local products are available. We aim to minimise our impact on the environment and give as much back as possible to the communities we work in.

While visiting the many national parks, heritage sites, museums and landmarks our travellers are encouraged to explore remain culturally aware and sensitive. We further encourage you to buy appropriate souvenirs and discourage the buying of anything wrongfully made or taken from the environment i.e. shells and endangered species products. Information on how you can be environmentally conscious, and travel responsibly will be made available in our Travellers Guides and provided during your travels by guides and staff.
