Buenos Aires Sightseeing Tour (Morning):
Start your 9am sightseeing tour in the Retiro neighborhood of Buenos Aires by hopping aboard your comfortable air-conditioned coach and relaxing as the city passes by. You’ll drive past significant cultural and historical monuments throughout the city’s distinct neighborhoods as your guide offers onboard commentary about each site.
Stop to take pictures of the Casa Rosada – a palatial building known for its pink exterior which houses the Argentine presidential office. In Plaza de Mayo, your guide will point out the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Cabildo (town hall) before taking you to Teatro Colón, a lovely opera house built near Plaza de la República and the Obelisco de Buenos Aires (Obelisk of Buenos Aires).
Back aboard the coach, drive through the waterfront district of Puerto Madero, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, en route to San Telmo. Admire the well-preserved colonial architecture and don’t be surprised to see a spontaneous tango performance at Dorrego Square. When you reach La Boca, a neighborhood settled by Italian immigrants, soak up the colorful atmosphere of the pastel-painted buildings along the main drag – the Caminito. Hop off the coach to see local artists display their work as you stroll along the pedestrian-only lane.
After re-boarding your coach, your guide will take you around in Recoleta, one of the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods famous for Recoleta Cemetery, elegant shops and open-air cafés.
