Experience Our Argentina

Our customized, private insider tours of Argentina feature our favorite places and experiences in the country.

Why Buenos Aires...

The Argentine capital is a fascinating mix of the traditional and the contemporary, including melancholy tangos, vibrant street art, and fashionable hotels and galleries.

Did you know...

The inhabitants of Buenos Aires are known as portenos (port dwellers), a nod to the city’s location on the banks of the Rio de la Plata.

Beyond Buenos Aires...

The Parana River Delta is a popular and family-friendly destination for a private day trip. Explore the verdant natural beauty of the delta by private boat, and enjoy riverside cafes in the town of Tigre.

Sweet delight...

Sample distinctive Argentine helado (ice cream) flavors like creamy sabayon and irresistible tramontana, vanilla ice cream swirled with chocolate cookies and dulce de leche.

Favorite shopping...

Wine, traditional ceramics, leather jackets and shoes, silver jewelry, brightly colored traditional textiles, and carved wooden gourds and metal bombillas (straws) for drinking Argentina’s ubiquitous mate tea.

For wine lovers...

The Mendoza region offers celebrated wineries (we’ll arrange private tours for you), dining at great restaurants and views across endless vineyards to the high peaks of the Andes.

Unusual antiques...

The venerable Gil Antiguedades is one of our favorite shops in Buenos Aires for antique porcelain, silver tea sets, and vintage clothing and accessories such as embroidered shawls, felt hats and beaded purses.

Fun at the falls...

Visiting Iguazu Falls on the border of Argentina and Brazil is an unforgettable experience, with spectacular views of the thundering cataracts and glimpses of colorful jungle wildlife, birds and butterflies.

Llao Llao: Patagonian luxury...

One of our favorite resorts in Argentina, Llao Llao combines luxurious accommodations, incredible views of the snow-capped Andes and sparkling lakes of Nahuel Huapi National Park, and easy access to outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking and lake cruises.

Tango immersion...

Our experts can arrange private tango lessons, excursions to milongas (tango halls) and tickets to tango performances.

Off the beaten track...

More adventurous travelers should consider Salta and Jujuy Provinces in Northwest Argentina, which offer traditional Andean villages, high-altitude vineyards and rugged high-desert landscapes.

Gaucho culture...

A private day trip to an estancia (ranch) is a great way to learn about gauchos, the cowboys who still work the ranches of Argentina, and perhaps go horseback riding across the pampas.

Walk on a glacier...

We can arrange for our travelers to don crampons and take an unforgettable stroll across the blue ice of spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia.

Dine in a “hidden” restaurant...

Some of Argentina’s finest dining experiences are at puertas cerradas (closed door) restaurants, which are known for beautiful settings, food-savvy invitees, and chefs and sommeliers who design their innovative menus with seasonal ingredients.

Don’t miss...

El Ateneo Grand Splendid, a beautiful bookshop inside a former theater in Buenos Aires. It retains many original architectural features, including ornate balconies, ceiling frescoes and the stage, which now houses a cafe.

Argentine caffeine...

Learn the proper etiquette for sipping mate, a bitter tea made by steeping the leaves of the yerba mate plant. Or, for something simpler, try a cortado, a shot of espresso with milk.
