Tastes and tango
Buenos Aires is famous for their Argentinean steakhouses and Asado barbecues, so what better way to experience these culinary delights than by joining a guided food tour or cooking class. Learn how to make traditional carne empanadas, or hit the streets of La Boca and San Telmoa to try popular dishes including milanesa and choripan alongside local wines.
When in Buenos Aires, you’ve got to tango. Why not spend an afternoon taking a class and learn from the professionals? Take a reasonably priced group class or a private dance class and you’ll be able to soltada, sacada and sandwich out in the streets of Buenos Aires in no time (well, at least you can have a go!).
Gaucho parties and scenic cruises
Take a day tour from Buenos Aires to a traditional Argentinean Ranch for a ‘fiesta gaucho party’ where you’ll hang out with South American cowboys (gauchos), saddle up for a horseback ride, enjoy a traditional folk show and a delicious, authentic barbeque lunch served with local wine.
While there are endless walking, eating and cycling tours available throughout Buenos Aires, it’s sometimes nice to put your feet up and sail away. Take a day cruise to Tigre along the Paraná River. Cruise through the lush green countryside of the Tigre Delta and see another way of life outside the big city.
