Buenos Aires City Tours

Join us as we take you on a visit to the historical Plaza de Mayo, the government center and colonial core of Buenos Aires, which features the National Congress and the Metropolitan Cathedral, as well as the Executive Pink House. The old Opera House was formerly located at the Plaza, but now is a bank (which often has fabulous exhibits, if you wish to step in).

A treat located along Avendia de Mayo is Café Tortoni—a classic stop-off for the intellectual crew at the turn of the century, be sure to enjoy a submarine (hot chocolate) and churros (stick donuts) in the winter, or something a bit more refreshing in summer…

Antique aficionados will adore wandering the streets in the traditional neighborhood of San Telmo. Side--if you like flea markets, you’ll LOVE stopping here on a Sunday morning! Please note that pick-pocketing is alive in well in Buenos Aires, and in particular at touristy street fairs!)

Check out La Boca--one of the most colorful sectors of the city, where at the turn of the century, Italian immigrants made their home, and where nowadays, local artists have claimed as home.

Palermo, a residential neighborhood with parks and elegant buildings, features one of my favorite monuments, the enormous Flower (flor) Sculpture.

Last but not least, the sophisticated Recoleta-- one of the most exclusive neighborhoods historically and currently, which features the famous Recoleta Cemetery, eternal resting place of many of Buenos Aires’ most illustrious citizens; as synthesis of history and art, it is recognized within the most outstanding necropolis in the world.

Tour time: Half Day (4 hours)

 

Buenos Aires by Night

Buenos Aires (BA), as you have likely heard, is famed for a MUY vibrant night-life! To experience the best of the city’s nocturnal goings-on, we offer an outing with a traveljewish host for a taste of the flavor of BA’s hotspots.

You’ll enjoy the tastiest of restaurants, most highly recommended clubs, as well as the best offerings on the cultural arts calendar. Our host will handcraft your outing according to your interest, shares insights on food tips, social commentary, and cultural tidbits.

Remember, Argentines get a late start (dinner typically at 10PM and later), so be sure to get in an afternoon siesta prior to your night out!

Whether it's a tango performance or a musical outing, we look forward to seeing you By Night!

 

Buenos Aires Evita Tours

Evita Peron, of Don't Cry for Me, Argentina, Fame, is a notable, historic figure who made a stamp on her people, her country and its history.

For those intrigued by powerful women and/or would like to learn more about Evita, her era and her legacy, we have a tour for you!

We'll start at the Evita museum (which we very highly recommend), continue to Recoleta, Evita's grave site, and finish with a chat with your host about what Evita's reign meant to him and how Jewish life was impacted under the Peron Dynasty.

Duration: 4 hours

 

The Estancia Experience

Located 120 kilometers from the City of Buenos Aires, this private Estancia opens gates for its guests to enjoy a full day outing. 

Located on 350 hectares of spectacular space, the property was formerly owned by the Liniers, one of the founding families of Argentina.

Your day in the country welcomes you to leave behind the urban ambience of Buenos Aires and to experience a true getaway.

The Owner of the Estancia personally receives guests and plans a thoughtful introduction of ranch life in Argentina as well as his passion for raising polo horses. 

You’ll have an opportunity to see how the cows are branded, the milk production is handled, and how polo horses are raised.

"Caballos de raza" breed horses are available for riding. Guests are also welcome to ride in carriages around the grounds.

Too hot to trot? Take a dip in the swimming pool and enjoy a lounge while learning Argentine card games.

For lunch, a (non-kosher) criollo (Argentine) BBQ is served with a variety of salads and local desserts.

Following afternoon activities, tea time a la Argentine is served featuring homemade cakes baked by the chef of the Estancia.

We have a guest who insists this was a highlight of his trip to Argentina and should not be missed!

Planning Notes:
Your host will pick you up at 9:30AM and you’ll be back at your hotel at approx 7PM.

This is a 3 hour round-trip transfer time.

 

Tigre Delta Tour

Our Tigre tour via private car generally takes 5-6 hours, however if you are pressed for time we can do a ‘squeez-it-in’ version in just under four, by leaving out some sight-seeing.

Along the way—we like to introduce you briefly to the neighborhood of San Isidro, where there’s a historic Cathedral, a fabulous view of the river, a peek at what a Buenos Aires' suburb looks like, and last but not least, examples of colonial homes where wealthy Buenos Aires’ families of yesteryear used to summer…

Ask your guide, if you’re so inclined, to stop at Sweety’s for an icecream. Even though Via Flaminia is better known, I swear by Sweety’s! (menta granizado is chocolate mint and you won’t go wrong! Most Argentines get two flavors, by the by, so indulge! A classic is ‘dulce de leche’…)

Following San Isidro (with or without icecream), arrive at the Delta to enjoy the touring along the Paraná de Las Palmas Delta, a labyrinth of islands and islets interwoven by rivers and streams, by water-taxi.

On the weekends, if you’re interested, we also stop off to visit the farmer’s market (Mercado de los Frutos).

If you’ve had enough prior to the market, simply let your guide know and we’ll take you back to the hotel.

 

Buenos Aires Walking Tour

Welcome to our Welcome Walking Tour!

From the time you left your home to the time you arrive at your hotel, approximately 20 hours of travel time will have ensued!

And we must warn you that your Buenos Aires hotel only will likely inform you that there is absolutely No early check-ins (due to the fact that Buenos Aires is all the rage, and all booked out!)

So it’s about noon, and you have 3 hours to kill before seeing a shower and enjoying a change of clothes.

Why not drop off your bags at the hotel and have a stroll? With us!

We invite you to enjoy a leisurely outing with a traveljewish host and take you ‘round your hotel area for some tips on how to most enjoy your Buenos Aires visit and for assistance in getting oriented.

We have two routes, depending on where your hotel is.

One route includes:

San Martín Square, San Martín Park, mansions in the ‘hood (!), Florida Street, Avenida de Mayo, the famous Café Tortoni, and Plaza de Mayo.

An alternative includes:

Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires Design, Avenida Alvear, Arroyo Street, and Plaza San Martín.

The walking tour lasts 3 hours.
