What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Private Buenos Aires Sightseeing Tour with Entrance to the Presidential Palace

Casa Rosada

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Our tour guide allowed us to design our tour. It was very special. She knew the city and shared her enthusiasm. Great tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

This was an expensive trip, but well worth it in the end.Our guide, a young man called Niko was an excellant guide. Our driver was very good and a very careful driver, which is not easy in Buenos Aries. We saw so much in almost 5 hours, The Presidential Palace were Niko guided us through the crowds with the help of people he knew in the Palace. We hit all the sights including again The Recoleta Cemetery which we had visited, but he gave us more information on the Eva Peron story than the previous guide had given us. His knowledge of the city was excellant, and his English was superb. He was an excellant ambassador for Viator and Argentina.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Both the guide and driver were very helpful particularly as we had a problem with our luggage at hotel. The tour was very interesting introduction to Buenos Aires and the guide was very knowledgeable. One issue outside operators control is that the Presidential Palace tour is NOT exclusive and we were forced to line up in file like naughty school children! Apart from that, excellent.
