Enjoy personalized attention on this small-group tour limited to six people.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide near Florida Street to kick off your walking tour. Make your way toward Avenida 9 de Julio, the widest avenue in the world, stopping to learn about the history of the Obelisco before heading to Teatro Colón. Visit the Plaza Congreso and the Palacio de Tribunales while learning about the country's legal system and government processes.
    View the art nouveau and neoclassical buildings on the Avenida de Mayo before moving on to Palacio Barolo, whose Italianate design was inspired by Dante's Divine Comedy. At Plaza de Mayo and Club Atletico, learn about a dark era of Argentina's history, when citizens who opposed the dictatorship in 1976–1983 were committed to urban concentration camps.
    Finally, ride in a taxi (fare included) to La Boca, and learn about the Caminito, a colorful artists' haven in this working-class neighborhood. After a neighborhood stroll, settle down at an outdoor cafe for a cup of coffee and a sidewalk tango performance. Feel free to explore La Boca on your own from here.
