Historical Buenos Aires (Plaza de Mayo and its surroundings)

Culture and History tour in Buenos Aires

Tour Price : 3 hours Duration : USD $99 for 1-2 people, USD $120 for 3-4 people Languages: English, Spanish

It is a great place to explore, but without a private guide in Buenos Aires, you may miss something very important there! The city was founded by a famous Spanish conquistador, Juan de Garay, almost half millennium ago. There are certain famous landmarks any tourist would like to visit there: La Casa Rosada, which is the centre of the government’s executive branch, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Present City Hall, and the Cabildo – the city council from colonial times.

There is no such place as Plaza de Mayo that would tell you more about Argentine history. It is filled with regretful memories of the mothers who hove gathered with pictures of their lost in the Dirty War children. We usually continue our guided tours in Buenos Aires by visiting the Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires and San Ignacio – an ancient church of the city. It is distinguished by its beautiful carvings and paintings which are definitely worth seeing.

After that we will move back to the Plaza de Mayo in order to take a look at several both important and beautiful buildings there: Diario La Prensa and the admirable Caf Tortoni, which is especially popular among artists, intellectuals and writers. Then we will use the oldest subway line in the whole South America, and get to the marvelous Palacio Barolo, which is a remarkable tribute to Dante’s masterpiece – Divine Comedy.

Once it has been the tallest building in the whole South of America. The end of our tour may be also the beginning of your own voyage around Buenos Aires.
