Tango Your Way Through Buenos Aires
We’ll dress up in our South American finest and travel back to the glory days of Buenos Aires, with a night of Argentinian steaks, live orchestra and sultry tango. As the birthplace of the tango, there’s no better place than Buenos Aires to watch a classic tango show. You’ll soon catch the rhythm and be dancing the tango all over the city before you know it!
Explore The Colourful La Boca & El Caminito
La Boca has got to be the most famous barrio in Buenos Aires and we’ll take you on a sightseeing tour around all the hotspots like El Caminito, the jewel in its crown. This exciting street is more like an open-air museum, with brightly painted houses, statues of Latino icons, outdoor markets and prancing tango dancers.
Wander Around Cementerio De La Recoleta
It’s not often that a cemetery holds the title of top attraction, but this is no ordinary cemetery. It’s a massive complex with over 6,000 graves and Argentina’s most famous figures are buried here. You can spend hours exploring the quirky streets filled with everything from mini cathedrals to Greek temples to marble mausoleums when we tour Buenos Aires.

VISIT AN AUTHENTIC ESTANCIA IN THE PAMPAS
If you've ever wanted to find out what life is really like on an estancia (Argentinean ranch), here's your chance! We went to the Pampas where we visited an authentic 3,000-acre working ranch that dates back to the 19th century. Best of all, we got to share a barbecue lunch with the family of gauchos and watch a folklore show and horse demonstrations. It was a fantastic day!
WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN ARGENTINA
Join your friendly local guide as they take you to find some of the best Argentina food in restaurants you can’t find on Google. Here, it’s all about superb steaks, fine red wine, and delicious desserts.
Steak is a big deal in Argentina. Whether you’re dining on prime cuts of beef in a fancy steakhouse or feasting on grilled beef from a traditional asado (similar to a barbecue) on the street corner, you’re sure to have some of the best steak of your life.
These heavenly shortbread cookies are the favorite dessert of Argentina. They’re made from crumbly, buttery biscuits stuck together with mousse, jam or dulce de leche (creamy caramel) and rolled in desiccated coconut. It’s melt-in-your-mouth goodness!
Argentinians know their steak, but they also know how to pair it with the finest red wines, and with nearly 30,000 vineyards in Argentina, you’ll have no trouble finding the right drop. We suggest starting with a bottle of Malbec, one of Argentina’s most famous red wines.
