Half-day Classic city tour with Tortoni’s Café
Enjoy a three-hour sightseeing tour of Buenos Aires, a cosmopolitan city that reflects the rich heritage of the numerous immigrants that shaped Argentina’s capital. The tour starts at the historic Plaza de Mayo Square, the scene of influential political manifestations. The square is flanked by the Government House, better known as the "Pink House”; the Cabildo (the old City Hall) and the Cathedral. Further south, visit the picturesque port neighborhood of La Boca with its famous colorful street "Caminito", and its unique architecture and customs that reflect the influence of the European immigrants, especially Genovese sailors, who settled along these shores at the end of the 19th century. The tour continues towards San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Settled by immigrants, the neighborhood has preserved most of its architectonic heritage and boasts lovely cobblestone streets lined with colonial houses. Stop at the traditional Café Tortoni for a freshly roasted coffee with a crispy ‘medialuna’ (Argentinean croissant). Next on the tour is the modern, well-heeled district of Puerto Madero and Palermo neighborhood with its elegant residences set among large green spaces. The tour concludes in Recoleta, Buenos Aires’ most sophisticated and upscale neighborhood. Return to hotel.

Day 3: Buenos Aires – San Antonio de Areco
Full Day visit to San Antonio de Areco and Estancia La Bamba
This is the most complete and original experience in the Pampas. San Antonio de Areco still maintains the atmosphere of an 19th century town with its narrow colonial streets, churches, bars and museums, making it an ideal place to breathe in the gaucho spirit and its traditions. "Nestled in lush farmlands, San Antonio de Areco is probably the prettiest town in the pampas.…" (Lonely Planet Guide).
The day starts with morning tour of the town to discover the argentine traditions being in contact with local artisans. At midday, “asado” (a typical argentine barbeque) at the Estancia, prepared and charmed by the gaucho´s hospitality.
La Bamba is one of the oldest colonial style estancias in Argentina, less than 2 hours outside of Buenos Aires. Its origins date back to 1830 when it served as one of the post houses on the "Camino Real" (Royal Road) that linked Buenos Aires to the north of the country. The former stables, “La Pulperia”, are the oldest buildings in the property, dating back to the 19th century when they gave shelter to the gauchos and their horses.
At the beginning of the 20th century the property was converted into a luxurious and comfortable ranch. In 2009, the estancia was completely renovated while preserving its colonial features. Today, La Bamba combines luxurious comfort with colonial elegance.
La Bamba offers many activities, including excursions on horseback, by carriage, or mountain bike. There is also an Argentine bowling lawn. Relax with a hot stone massage or take a dip in the large swimming pool. La Bamba de Areco also serves as the base for the international La Bamba de Areco Polo team. The property includes two polo fields; during polo season, watch a game or even join a training session! Return to hotel.
