Day 1 - Welcome to Buenos Aires!

Upon arrival in Buenos Aires, you are met and transferred to your hotel.

Welcome to Buenos Aires!
Elegant, old-worldly, with a touch of Paris here and a touch of London there, a dash of New York cosmopolitanism and a big splash of Italian exuberance, the city also has a strong Latin America personality as well as uniquely Argentine elements such as tango bars. Here, everything is grand, on a scale fit for kings: Tourists photograph vast steaks at restaurants, Nueve de Julio avenue ranks as the world’s widest, a cemetery so fancy that it occupies one of the poshest parts of the poshest neighborhood, while the entire city fronts onto the world’s widest river. Buenos Aires never fails to impress.

Overnight: Four Seasons

Day 2 - Buenos Aires City Tour

Breakfast at the hotel.

Familiarize yourself with some of the most recognizable landmarks in the ‘Paris of the South’ during a guided half-day Buenos Aires city tour. This tour includes the most historic areas of Buenos Aires. Starting in Plaza de Mayo, the political heart of the city, this square was designed by Don Juan de Garay in 1580. Continue to La Boca, the tough port barrio (neighborhood) and colorful working-class area of Buenos Aires, and finally Puerto Madero, the city’s newest district whose red-brick warehouses have been transformed into trendy restaurants and bars. Board a ferry in Puerto Madero for a 20-minute boat ride on the Río de la Plata (River Plate) to see the city from a completely different angle.

Return to the hotel, where you have time at leisure.

An evening of intimate music and dance awaits at Rojo Tango, a unique venue located inside Faena Universe, in Puerto Madero. Following a private venue transfer without a guide, a tango show awaits at the Philippe Stark designed cabaret for a performance filled with fantasy, sensuality, and nostalgia

Rojo Tango’s vanguard show recreates the age when tango was danced on the streets of Buenos Aires. Talented dancers, musicians, and singers leave guests breathless, while the Faena’s gastronomic offering teams aromas and textures with some of Argentina’s finest sparkling wines.

After the show, transfer back to your hotel.
