More Information

1 Buenos Aires
On arrival at Buenos Aires' Ezeiza Airport (international) or Aeroparque Jorge Newbery Airport (domestic) you will be met and transferred to your hotel in the city. Please look for your transfer guide at the airport - they will be holding a sign with your name on it. Once you have checked into the hotel, the remainder of your first day will be free until a welcome meeting at approximately 6pm. Buenos Aires is home to 11 million 'portenos', a name given to the inhabitants of Buenos Aires that literally means 'residents of the port'. It has been shaped by a history riddled with conflict and struggles. Even the achievement of independence in 1816 did not resolve ongoing disputes between local residents and conservative provincial landowners. However, following a succession of military juntas, Argentina now has a stable, democratic government. This is a free evening and you may like to consider dining out in one of Buenos Aires' famous steak restaurants. Your hotel concierge can help you to book this.
2 Buenos Aires
Today you will enjoy a full day tour of the city. Witness the Romanesque architecture surrounding Plaza de Mayo, the historic town square flanked by the presidential palace known as the Casa Rosada, and wander through the cobblestone streets around San Telmo Market. Enjoy lunch in a local artist’s house in bohemian La Boca – the colourful neighbourhood at the mouth of the Riachuelo River. Discover the history of the district of Recoleta, famous for its cemetery often referred to as a miniature city-within-a-city because to its size. This place is also famous as the resting place for Argentina's favourite first lady, Eva Peron. Tonight you will enjoy dinner and witness an authentic tango experience, watching the the locals dance to milonga music.
