A half day experience, covering the must-see attractions of BA

This is the ideal tour for those who have little time, or want a quick overview of the city and a clear first impression.
Must -see attractions like Plaza de Mayo, San Telmo, La Boca and Recoleta will be visited , having the chance to do, usually, two stops. After this tour , you will have a good understanding of the paradoxes, the contradictions, the rhythm, and the idiosyncrasy of this "Paris of South America".


This is a tailor-made tour so we can start depending on where I pick you up and the things you want to do in BA. Depending on traffic, weather conditions or your personal interests, we can include:
-Plaza de Mayo and Metropolitan Cathedral (where Pope Francis has worked for years)
-San Telmo
-Caminito, La Boca.
-Recoleta and its Cemetery.
