Itinerary

ITINERARY CHANGES Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It is important that you review this information prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays, or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in-country. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary seasonally to ensure our travellers have the best experience. Your tour leader will keep you up to date with any such changes once on tour. OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES A selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travellers are listed in the day-to-day itinerary. This isn't an exhaustive list and should be used as a guide only for some of what might be available. Prices are approximate, are for entrance only, and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability, and maybe on a join-in basis. It may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. When it's recommended that travellers pre-book these activities, look for a note in the Special Information section of the day-to-day itinerary. For most, they can either be organised independently on the day, or let your leader know you are interested in the Group Meeting and they can assist. Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high-risk activities not listed above have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and leaders are unable to assist you with organising these activities. Activities that contravene our Responsible Travel policies are also not listed. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk.

Day 1 - Buenos Aires
Buenas dias! Welcome to Argentina. On arrival at either Buenos Aires' Ezeiza (international) or Aeroparque Jorge Newbery (domestic) airports, meet your transfer guide at the arrival’s hall and head to your centrally located hotel. Once you have checked into the hotel, the remainder of your first day will be free until a welcome meeting at around 6 pm. Buenos Aires is home to 11 million 'portenos', a name given to the locals that literally means 'residents of the port'. After your briefing, why not consider dining out at one of the city’s renowned asado restaurants – Argentinian barbecue is something to indulge in at least once.
Day 2 - Buenos Aires
Enjoy a morning exploring some of Buenos Aires’ most acclaimed sites with your local guide. First off is the Plaza de Mayo to visit the Cabildo – the city’s original town hall – as well as the presidential palace. Walk around La Boca and its Caminito district, before heading to the lesser-known Barracas neighbourhood for a group lunch at Iriarte Verde Work Cooperative – a local NGO where you’ll learn about their agroecological model of food production and community collaboration. Help prepare a meal – much of the ingredients for which are grown in the co-op’s own gardens – and then dine on the results, including shortbread-like alfajores for dessert. Walk off lunch on a stroll through the labyrinths of Recoleta Cemetery. After a stop at the grave of Eva Peron, head to Palermo to see beautiful parks designed by Carlos Thays and the unique Floralis Generica sculpture of a huge metal flower. Later, get ready to be captivated by Argentina’s most famous dance – the tango. In a private space, professional dancers will explain its origins and history, as well as demonstrate some moves. You’ll then be invited to join an hour-long beginner’s class to learn some of the basic techniques and find your own rhythm.
Day 3 - Buenos Aires
Your Independent Experience will come to an end today after breakfast. If you do have an onward connection booked, you will be transferred to the airport in time for your flight. Please ensure you provide flight details when booking your Buenos Aires Experience.
