The first stop on my round-the-world trip is Buenos Aires, Argentina. My two days here were spent running in Palermo Park, walking around the Harbor Area, visiting the Recolta Cemetery, and the Obelisk (the city's biggest landmark) that sits in the Plaza de la Republica.
The first day you can spend at your leisure, either relaxing at your hotel, or exploring the city. In the evening you will head to one of Buenos Aires' finest dinner and tango shows at Esquina Carlos Gardel, a traditional Art Nouveau dining room to experience the very best of Argentine cuisine and dance.

Your local guide/host will show you the landmark buildings and neighborhoods, like the city center to see the Obelisco and the Casa Rosada and then La Boca, San Telmo, Recoleta and Palermo. The guides will tell you about the history and architecture of each area. The last day you can head out independently or avail of one of our tour options.
