Tigre Delta Tour (Morning):
Upon pickup from your hotel, board a comfortable coach and head out of the city center to San Isidro, driving parallel to the scenic Rio de la Plata. When you reach the affluent town, your guide will point out the San Isidro Cathedral and numerous mansions long inhabited by Argentina’s aristocratic families.
Continue to Tigre and board a catamaran for a 40-minute cruise through Tigre Delta, observing island residents interacting with floating services such as the supermarket boat and water taxi. Admire the homes built on stilts and view President Sarmiento’s home and museum before re-boarding your coach at the port for the return drive to Buenos Aires, before your city sightseeing tour.
Buenos Aires Sightseeing Tour (Afternoon):
Begin your sightseeing tour of Buenos Aires in the Retiro neighborhood aboard your comfortable coach, traveling through the city’s most popular neighborhoods and passing famous landmarks along the way. In Plaza de Mayo, stop for photos of the Argentine presidential office – Casa Rosada – a palatial building known for its pink exterior. See the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Cabildo (town hall) before making your way to Teatro Colón, a beautiful opera house built near Plaza de la República and the Obelisco de Buenos Aires (Obelisk of Buenos Aires).
On your way to San Telmo, go through the waterfront district of Puerto Madero, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Admire the well-preserved colonial architecture and attractions like Dorrego Square, where spontaneous tango performances are known to erupt. Enjoy the colorful atmosphere of La Boca, a neighborhood settled by Italian immigrants and a major attraction due to the brightly painted buildings of the Caminito, the main drag. Here, hop off the coach for a stroll along the pedestrian-only lane where local artists sell their work. Back on your coach, drive through Palermo and take in views of Palermo Woods, the city’s largest park.
Your coach tour ends in Recoleta, one of the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods, renowned for the Recoleta Cemetery, elegant shops and open-air cafés. Explore the city on your own or take a rest during two hours of free time before your evening tango show.
