All Blacks Beef & Beer Trip – What You’ll See and Do in 6 days
Buenos Aires Highlights
BA is one of the most exciting and enticing cities in the world, bursting with life and attitude and offering a wealth of exceptional attractions. The main highlights are covered on a half-day guided city tour, right off the bat: this offers a fab overview of the city, helps you get your bearings yet is short enough to leave you an entire afternoon at leisure. We’ll guide you to the historic quarter to visit the main points of interest and show you around the most famous and celebrated neighbourhoods in tows: charming and historic San Telmo, eclectic Palermo, exclusive Puerto Madero, sport-mad and colourful La Boca and elegant Recoleta, with its world-famous cemetery and last resting place of Eva Peron and a long list of illustrious Argentinians. But Buenos Aires is also a city you’ll want to get hopelessly lost in and once you get your bearings, you’ll have time to soak it all up at your own pace.
Argentinian Culinary Experience
One of the newest and most exciting additions to our tours, our dining experience in Buenos Aires offers not just feasting – which admittedly is awesome enough – but is also fully interactive so you can learn the culinary art of making traditional empanadas and alfajores, all to be enjoyed with a grilled meat feast that’ll blow your mind. The best steaks in the world are famously from Argentina and no visit to the country – let alone an All Blacks Beef and Beer Tour – could ever be complete without the carnivorous feats of a lifetime.
The largest cattle market in the country, Liniers, is an impressive place to visit and is particularly coveted by visiting livestock farmers from New Zealand. One of the most fascinating dedicated tours of all, our livestock market tour showcases an incredible piece of Argentina’s history and certainly helps explain why this, above all else, is considered the best beef-capital of the world. As far back as a century ago, ships used to leave Buenos Aires stocked to the brim with export cattle and come right back overloaded with expectant Europeans looking for their pot of ‘New World Gold’. A wonderful insight into the local cattle industry and an unmissable highlight for beef fans – cattle farmers or not.
Insider’s Craft Beer Tours
Argentina is going through a craft beer revolution right now, the country quietly (but swiftly) rising in international beer ranks. Buenos Aires alone is not home to over 600 craft beer breweries and on our guided private tour you’ll get to taste your way through the best of the best. Beer crafting has had an interesting and hard-fought history here and, to make things interesting, we’ll include a visit to two secret bars (speakeasies) so you can really get a feel (and taste) of this emerging scene in Buenos Aires.
Traditional Ranch Visit
It is often said that no visit to Argentina could ever be complete without a visit to an estancia (traditional ranch) and we certainly wouldn’t let you leave Buenos Aires without adding this to your itinerary. Leave the big smoke behind for the day and venture off into the expansive pampas to see a side of the country that’ll surely leave you spellbound. The gaucho tradition of Argentina is still very much alive and thriving and on our visit to a local ranch you’ll get to experience it all – a wonderful horsemanship performance, a thrilling horse ride and, to cap it all off, an exceptional traditional BBQ feast. This is, without a doubt, one of the best things to do in Buenos Aires.
All Blacks VS Pumas, Game Day!
Our All Blacks Beef & Beer Tour in Buenos Aires includes official match tickets, transport and refreshments on game day, 20th July 2019. This is, after all, the main reason you’re planning your tour in the first place! This unforgettable international sporting event is the reason you’ll find Buenos Aires at its best in July, the whole country reverberating in excited anticipation.
Capping off your week in Buenos Aires with the All Blacks game will be the cherry atop the cake yet an evening flight out of the city the next day actually offers one more full day to discover more of the city or any highlights you missed at arrival.
