Your private sightseeing tour begins with pickup from your centrally located hotel in Buenos Aires. Board your private car and head to the Plaza de Mayo, the political center of Buenos Aires. Here, enjoy a guided tour of the Casa Rosada, the official office of the Argentinian president. All tours are led by presidential guards and are conducted in Spanish, but on this exclusive tour, an English- and Portuguese-speaking guide translates historical facts about the iconic site for you. If you aren’t fluent in Spanish, this is the tour to take and it’s only available on Viator.
Inside the palatial building, famous for its pink exterior, you’ll be led past portraits of famous Argentines such as Che Guevara. Step out on the balcony where Evita Peron gave her speeches, and look out over the plaza toward the nearby Metropolitan Cathedral and the Cabildo (town hall). Before you leave, be sure to set foot inside the presidential office for a glimpse!
Back in your private vehicle, relax in your comfortable seat as you make your way past Buenos Aires’ top landmarks in popular city neighborhoods. Pass Teatro Colón, a beautiful opera house near Plaza de la República where you can see the Obelisco de Buenos Aires (Obelisk of Buenos Aires) built in 1936.
If you've opted for lunch, enjoy a parrillada at a well-known steakhouse in San Telmo, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. After your delicious barbecue meal, admire the well-preserved colonial architecture and keep an eye out for spontaneous tango performances as you pass Dorrego Square. If you didn't select the lunch option, just ask your driver to stop anywhere you'd like for a delicious bite (own expense).
Next, make your way to La Boca, the city’s most colorful neighborhood, which was settled by Italian immigrants. Get out for a stroll along the Caminito, the main pedestrian walkway where you’ll see local artists selling their work against brightly painted buildings. You'll drive to the waterfront district of Puerto Madero to Palermo—home to the Buenos Aires Zoo and Galileo Galilei Planetarium in Palermo Woods, the city’s largest park. When you arrive in the upscale neighborhood of Recoleta, you’ll have the opportunity to visit Recoleta Cemetery, where the remains of famous Argentines such as Eva Peron are interred within impressive monuments.
After your exploration on foot, your driver will return your private party to your hotel.
