This morning, after breakfast, your English-speaking guide will pick you up at the hotel and take you through the main areas of Buenos Aires by public transportation (local bus/ subway) starting at Plaza de Mayo and the historical quarter. This walking tour includes the visit of San Telmo – bohemian area – and La Boca, visiting the famous “Caminito” street and a “Conventillo” (typical colorful houses built by immigrants). Return to the hotel for a free afternoon.
Kindly note that there is an option in the evening to go to a traditional Milonga Show where you can learn all about the history and evolution of tango. A “milonga” is a tango club where locals and visitors get together to enjoy music and dance and if you get caught up in the passion of it all, you may want to try a tango lesson yourself! Tango is a dance recognized by UNESCO as a cultural heritage activity and different “milongas” open on different days of the week. Return to the hotel by taxi.
Another option is to share a cooking lesson with a local family, which is an authentic way to enjoy the most typical Argentine food: empanadas, a barbecue and of course: wine. Taste and make your own empanadas! The menu includes typical Argentine cuts of meat, grilled vegetables, salads, drinks, and dessert.
