Tour Description

On our Signature tour of Buenos Aires, stay 3 nights in comfortable central accommodation, explore the highlights of the city including Mayo Square, San Telmo and La Boca. Buenos Aires is the home of tango, so a tango show is a must, as well as an intimate Asado dining experience, enjoying an Argentinean BBQ along with some of the best boutique wines from Argentina.

San Isidro & Tigre Delta
Travel from the heart of Buenos Aires to the Tigre Delta in a catamaran, offering one of the best views of the city skyline (a view that surprisingly few people see, even locals). You will be collected from your hotel and taken to the city’s port to board a modern catamaran which will take you to the Tigre Delta. During the one-and-a-half-hour cruise you will be able to admire Buenos Aires from the Rio de la Plata (River Plate), its northern areas and the channels of the Delta, whilst enjoying refreshments on board.

Located in San Telmo, the venue is a restored conventillo (boarding house) and offers an intimate show featuring professional dancers and musicians. The show is accompanied by a traditional menu and Argentine wines. Due to the show commencing earlier than other venues, this is an ideal venue for families or those who want a taste of tango but not a late evening.
