Day 1

Day 1 | Morning

Arriving Buenos Aires

On the first day, for those traveling from further destinations, you'll likely be flying through EZE airport. Either way, head to your accommodations to drop your things and then get out for a meal.

Head to Confiteria Ideal for brunch where the menu is expansive, atmosphere is unique, and the food is delicious. Consider sharing the appetizer board if you're visiting with a group, a jamon and cheese toastie, or indulge in a sweet pastry.

Day 1 | Afternoon

Exploring the City

Next you'll walk by the Obelisco, a tall white monument at the center of la Plaza de la Republica, and Teatro Colon, the opera house. You're en route to stop in El Ateneo Grand Splendid, the second most beautiful bookstore in the world. It was previously home to one of the most important cinemas in Buenos Aires. After you've enjoyed the interior of the bookstore, continue onto visit the Recoleta Cemetery.


If you're interested in learning a bit during your visit to the Recoleta Cemetery, I'd recommend taking a tour as a guide can show you some of the key mausoleums and learn the stories about people buried there. Once you've wrapped up at the cemetery, stop by the Barrel Brewery, just minutes from the exit to enjoy a cold beer.


Day 1 | Evening

Argentinian Dinner

At this point, you're probably ready for a bit of a break before dinner. Head back to your hotel to clean-up for dinner and then head to the Argentine Experience which is located in the neighborhood of Palermo. You're in for quite an experience as you'll get to enjoy multiple courses accompanied by wine. You'll even learn to make an empanada to enjoy as one of your starters.


After dinner, close out your night and get some rest ahead of another full day tomorrow.

Day 2

Day 2 | Morning

Exploring by bike

Today plan to grab a bite to eat and coffee on the go as you head to take a bike tour which commences in Plaza General San Martin. The bike tour lasts four hours and takes you to many key sights in Buenos Aires including Puerto Madero, Reserva ecologica, La Boca, Caminito, La Bombonera (football stadium), Parqu Lezama, and Plaza de Mayo. Along the tour, you'll learn about the different areas in the city and sights you visit from your leader, while moving at a comfortable pace

Day 2 | Afternoon

More adventures or some downtime

Once you wrap up the bike tour, it'll be lunch time. If you're up for some more exploring, head to San Telmo Market to find some food at the market and explore the area around. If you're just looking for something quick, you can grab something along your walk back to your accommodations that looks tasty.


Alternatively, head to Petit Colon, near Teatro Colon, and sit in the Argentinian Café to enjoy lunch. Then head to Teatro Colon which offers guided tours daily for purchase.

Day 2 | Evening

Asado experience

If you're done exploring, just allow some time to relax before another extraordinary dinner this evening. Tonight you'll head to Fogon Asado for another incredible dining experience, where you'll be seated at a table where you can watch all your meals being prepared. The experience includes a 9 course tasting menu accompanied by Argentinian wines!
