Tour Details

Buenos Aires Highlights

This scenic Buenos Aires tour showcases the city's spacious parks, fashionable shops, and famed architecture. From motoring by the vibrant Caminito Street Museum in the renowned La Boca barrio, where the first Italian immigrants settled in 1851, to driving along the the world's widest boulevard, the city's Latin flavor and European structural influences will absolutely amaze you.

Buenos Aires is the most popular travel destination in South America. After visiting these must-see tour sites, you will know why. Plaza de Mayo is the heart of this capital city and the site of the May 25, 1810 revolution, which led to Argentina's independence. It's now the country's political hub, bordered by La Casa Rosada, a baby pink building, and office of the Argentine President.

Equally astounding is the 19th-century Neoclassical facade of the Metropolitan Cathedral (housing the Mausoleum of General San Martin, the primary leader responsible for Argentina's independence) and the regal Cabildo (the Colonial Town Hall). These sights will remind you of a European capital enhanced by Argentine style. Then there's the giant Obelisk of Buenos Aires, a National Historic Monument marking 100 years of government. This impressive structure is surrounded by an LED light district reminiscent of New York City's Times Square. The Buenos Aires entertainment industry movers and shakers can be seen there.

Speaking of entertainment, no visit to Buenos Aries is complete without visiting the tomb of the remarkable political leader Eva (Evita) Peron at the La Recoleta Cemetery. And for the grand finale, you'll continue driving through the glamorous Recoleta Quarter, home of Buenos Aires's exclusive shops, art galleries, and restaurants. At the end of your tour, you will be dropped off at your choice of 3 exciting locations within the city to explore or enjoy shopping in this vibrant city.

Buenos Aires is a cultural, South American mecca and even has the highest concentration of theaters in the world. For first time visitors, this Buenos Aires tour is a total delight. Bring your camera and an appetite for adventure on this comprehensive and convenient tour of Argentina's magnificent metropolis.

Please Note: This tour offers drop-off to your choice of 3 exciting locations within Buenos Aires to explore or shop at your leisure after the tour: the Obelisk of Buenos Aires, the Galerias Pacifico Shopping Center, or the Puerto Madero Waterfront. The tour does not include drop-off at the pier and is not available to guests on embarkation or disembarkation day as it does not accommodate luggage.

Great tour

An excellent tour of Buenos Aires. We were met promptly at our hotel and escorted to our transportation. We were a small group of 12 people and as such, our interaction with our guide was excellent. This tour took us to varied locations throughout the city with ample time to take pictures and explore locations.

Good overall tour

Unfortunately the day we visited it was raining so the time on the bus was difficult to see all the sites through the rainy windows. The tour of the cemetery was short but informative. The stops were also short and wish we could have spent a little more time shopping.

The Buenos Aires Highlights tour was wonderful. The tour guide was very accommodating and very friendly. We were staying in Buenos Aires for 2 days, she dropped off and recommended where to stay, eat and what to see. Outstanding experience.

More shopping sites than city sites

Unfortunately our tour took place on a rainy day where it was hard to enjoy the stops -- and we even returned to the cruise ship rather than staying in the city to be stuck in the rain. We were surprised that we only had 3 stops for photos, with two of them at markets where the only "sites" were shopping. So we aren't sure that we really saw the city's highlights. Our tour guide also began the excursion by apologizing for her English -- her commentary was hard to follow much of the time.

Great tour of the city and the sights

Booked this tour in Buenos Aries from our cruise ship. The guide was very good, we were picked up on time and the tour was exactly as described. Some people hadn’t read the info and expected to be dropped back at the port but this tour gives you 3 drop off points in the city at the end. We loved this as it gave us the afternoon to shop and explore a bit on our own. Taxi back to the ship was only a few dollars and we really enjoyed this tour with the cemetery and le Boca as real highlights
