• A break at the oldest & most beautiful cafe in Buenos Aires,  Cafe Tortoni,  the cafe in a city of cafes, founded way back in 1858.
• The heart of the barrio of Retiro – Plaza San Martin, a leafy park surrounded by beautiful architecture and filled with monuments.
• The "widest avenue in the world", Avenida 9 de Julio, home to the famous Buenos Aires Obelisk.
• Lunch at a traditional Argentine restaurant with your guide – a place where locals eat, with a choice of dishes to cover all tastes.
• Recoleta, the most prestigious traditional neighborhood, full of grand old mansions and high class establishments, where we’ll stroll along the elegant and upscale Avenida Alvear and into Plaza Francia, the heart of Recoleta.
• Finally, the highlight for many: Recoleta Cemetery, the last resting place of Eva Peron and many other rich & famous Argentines, plus the highest concentration of stunning architecture in the whole city.

At the end of the tour your guide will flag a taxi for you, or you can pre-arrange private/accompanied transport back to your accommodation during the booking process.
