A complete introduction for first time visitors

The tour covers the highlights of the city, exploring places such us Plaza de Mayo, La Boca, Puerto Madero, Recoleta and Palermo.

As a passionate about my city, I will be pleased to show you my city and to share its secrets with you!!
After picking you up in a comfortable car, I like to start the tour by visiting "Plaza de Mayo, " the main square of the city. This is the place where the city was founded, the place where the most important events of Argentina took place and still take place.

Our next stop is is La Boca (the mouth). This is a neighborhood situated in the south of the city and it is known for its colorful houses, for soccer and specially for tango. Once here we take our time to explore this colorful area.

At noon, we have time to enjoy local food. There are many options, from something fast ("empanadas" is a must) or a big meal (steak is our speciality…here one steak is for 2 persons!!).


- Plaza de Mayo (political centre of the country)
- Government House (known as Pink House, from outside)
- BA Metropolitan Cathedral (guided visit inside)
- La Boca - Caminito (the old port where tango was born)
- San Telmo (old area famous for its antique stores - and flee market on Sundays)

A Recent Review of this tour

Covering a meaningful part of this huge city in one day is quite a challenge. It was only made possible with the help of Mariela. She enhanced the stops we made with local and historical perspectives that helped paint a compelling mosaic of the Argentine people, especially Porteños from agriculture to politics to tango and how they interacted. And...she sang a tango for us! We now truly see the city through different eyes. Well done.
