Bustling and dynamic, melancholic and passionate – Buenos Aires reflects the many contrasts and the variety that defines Argentina.
South America’s multicultural city that “never sleeps” offers possibilities for everyone: for those who love the nightlife it has shows and events almost at every hour, and for those who prefer a calmer rhythm it has corners that invite to walk through the world of Borges or a scenery recreated by a Tango song.
Watching a Boca Juniors soccer game, eating an “asado” with friends, accompanied by a nice glass of red wine, discussing for hours over a cup of coffee, learning how to dance Tango or just reading a book on a square bench – all this is part of the everyday life in town.
As many travelers come to Argentina looking for adventure, out of this world sceneries and inspiring landscapes, we offer uniquely memorable tours which we like to combine with unique local cuisine experiences.
