Tour itinerary

todayDay 1: Recoleta - Palermo - Microcentro - San Telmo - La Boca -Puerto Madero

The tour will begin with the pick up at the travellers’ accommodations. When the whole group gets together, at 10:00 a.m. the tour of the city of Buenos Aires will begin. Get ready: the first stop will be a place you don’t wanna miss.
Floralis genérica You'll get off the minibus to visit the emblematic Floralis Generica. If you don't have a good arm for selfies, don't worry! The guides will take the perfect picture, so you can take this memory home.
Recoleta Cemetery You'll be back on the road, this time headed to Recoleta Cemetery. Over there, you’ll find the Mausoleum of Eva Duarte Perón, Argentina's most famous political figure, who's legend inspired a musical on Broadway and a film in Hollywood. In Recoleta you’re going to find great mysteries and statues of all architectural styles. The most surprising fact? After more than 60 years from Eva's death, every day there are fresh flowers and letters from her admirers.
Catedral & Plaza de Mayo It's time to go to the Microcentro in Buenos Aires. You will find yourself in a chaos that infatuates -and is even more incredible than you think-. On your way there, you’ll see the Colón Theatre and the Obelisco passing by. When you get out of the vehicle, it’s time to visit the Metropolitan Cathedral and Plaza de Mayo. You will feel the emotion of being at the place where the most revolutionary moments in the history of Argentina took place.
San Telmo, Caminito & La Boca You will return to the vehicle to go to the cradle of tango and Buenos Aires culture: San Telmo, Caminito and La Boca.
You will experience how Argentines live football as a life philosophy (even as a religion!). The passion for Boca Juniors is immortalized in tattoos, clothes, murals, houses and shops. You'll see the colorful conventillos, and Caminito street - the one that gives its name to Carlos Gardel's tango-.
Navigation & Lunch After such an intense morning, what sounds better than stopping to rest and have lunch? Welcome aboard: a delicious three-couse meal awaits you. You will have views of Buenos Aires impossible to get on land, and photographs that will keep this memory alive forever. And not only that: now you’ll be able to say that you sail along on the widest river in the world.
The ship returns to Puerto Madero around four o'clock in the afternoon. This is a perfect time to go back to your accommodation, or to stay and enjoy one of the most glamorous neighborhoods in Buenos Aires.
