Argentine Nature and Culture Tours

Native animals and birds of the Pampas

Excursion to a farm that has a zoo in the Pampas with private guide. The experience begins with a traditional lunch prepared by an Argentinean family, consisting of grilled meat, a variety of salads. As an option you can request a wine tasting from the main producing regions.

Traditional lunch in the Pampas

This zoological park in the Pampas has native animals and birds of Argentina, but especially of the region of Buenos Aires. In the outdoor park we can also observe the native birds.

Pampas wildlife

For example we can watch the characteristic bird of the Pampas, the Rhea.

And perhaps the delicate flamingos surprise us with a dance.

Or perhaps the llama will greet us with a blatant spit.

It will be possible to organise an optional horseback riding tour and approximation to the gaucho culture. We will serve the traditional mate, the national drink, accompanied by the traditional Argentinian confectionery called “Alfajor”.

Buenos Aires City Tour

The segments of the walking tour of the city of Buenos Aires include:

  • 10:00 Meeting with the private guide for the walking city tour of Buenos Aires. During the tour I will narrate everything about Argentine history, Argentine culture and daily life. The first stop is the Plaza de Mayo in the historic center. Old Spanish City Hall (Cabildo), Galería Güemes (The litle prince), the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Banco de la Nación, the Pink House, the May Pyramid, the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, the Jesuits, the Church of San Ignacio, the oldest shops: De Ávila Bookstore, La Estrella pharmacy, decorated with walnut boiserie, Carrara marble and Murano glass.

Roverano Gallery. Old Italian coffee shop Fernet Branca. We get to the first metro line in Latin America (from 1913) to travel a station and visit the Café Tortoni, one of the most elegant in Buenos Aires.
  • We leave for La Boca. Walking tour through La Boca. El Caminito street, where the dance of tango was born. The immigrants. Boca Juniors Stadium Lunch break does not have to be at an elegant restaurant or a special lunch. You can choose a very cheap, normal, elegant or extra-exclusive restaurant in Puerto Madero. I usually recommend having a choripán lunch on a typical grill in the same way that Boca Juniors fans do, near the Boca stadium and a little away from tourists.
  • We leave for Núñez. On the way we will pass by the Plaza de los dos Congresos. Then we will arrive at the Memorial Park (Disappeared during dictatorship), River Plate Stadium, Chinatown. Then we leave for Palermo, we will pass by the Hippodrome and visit the Garden of Roses (Rosedal).  Optional visit to Japanese Garden / Graffiti.
  • We leave for Recoleta. One of the most important Masonic cemeteries in the world. Tomb of Evita Perón. We will discover the oldest, the newest, the most expensive, the strangest tomb. On the way to San Telmo, we will make a stop at the El Ateneo Bookstore, regarded among the most beautiful in the world.
  • The tour continues in San Telmo. Formerly the neighborhood of wealthy Argentines, after the plague of yellow fever was rented by poor unemployed Italian / European immigrants who came seeking jobs in America. National historical museum. Russian church. House of the Ezeiza family. Lot of French (The patriot). Goldsmith Juan Carlos Pallarols. San Telmo Market. Minimal house (Narrowest house). House of Mafalda.
