Day 2: BUENOS AIRES

Set out on an exclusive immersion in Buenos Aires and enjoy a stylish tango show at Rojo Tango

Visit traditional San Telmo, enjoy a unique experience at Teatro Colon, and an immersive visit of Caballito neighborhood.

San Telmo has the most classic, old school vibe in Buenos Aires. Cobblestone streets, old lanterns, hundred- year-old buildings match what many people expect to see in Buenos Aires.

Teatro Colon is one of the most important opera houses in the world, due to its acoustic excellence and its high architectural value. During your visit, you will get a better understanding of the history and traditions of Teatro Colon, including a very special meet and greet with Teatro Maestro Enrique Diemecke, who will give you more insight on both the theatre and some of the special performances he has conducted during his tenure at Teatro Colon.

Head off the beaten path to the neighborhood of Caballito for a unique walking tour that explores the hidden gems of Buenos Aires that you will not find in guidebooks. This tour includes uncommonly visited city landmarks that deviate from the typical tourist locations. If you would like some insight into local life or would like to learn about the local food and see what the locals do, come explore this authentic local cultural experience in a non-touristy barrio. In Caballito, learn about immigration, gauchos, tango, and the historical and architectural evolution of the neighborhood. You’ll travel back in time to the 19th and early 20th century to discover amazing places such as: a historic market built in 1889; an incredible old-fashioned barber shop that is also a living museum; a pulperia or gauchos’ bar; a truly impressive 19th century tea/coffee house; a legendary tango salon that was once used as a grain silo; and one of the most beautiful churches in the city and where Pope Francis was baptized.
