Buenos Aires’ charm rests on its unique identity, where each of its different waves of immigrants have left an indelible mark on the city. Go on a trip around its centre with your own private guide, who knows the intimate secrets and stories of Buenos Aires. 

A Nation’s Hub

Venturing into the Plaza de Mayo, you will smell the dissent by the Cabildo; an iconic building in Argentinian history that was the centre of the 1810 May Revolution. Walking around the square, point you about why each of the surrounding buildings is so important, your personal guide will tell you the tales of SI, the state intelligence service, and Argentina’s tumultuous financial history. Stopping at the presidential executive mansion of the Casa Rosada, you will venture into the catacombs of the old colonial fort where the Museo del Bicentenario now stands; a place where presidential memorabilia stands alongside old finds from Buenos Aires’ colonial past. 

Boutique Buenos Aires

Stepping into your private taxi, you will watch the best of Buenos Aires’ chic go along the Avienda Rivadavia. A crucial road for the city since the 19th century, it is a prime area for the classier side of the city’s society. If you wish, you can pop into Café Tortoni; a place synonymous with Argentinian delicacies and with a history going back to 1858. You will also see the Congreso de la Nacion Argentino. Situated as a counterweight to the Casa Rosada at the end of the Avienda Rivadavia, it is where Argentine lawmakers meet and deliberate. A fantastic place to learn about the multiple deviations of Argentine politics, such as what exactly is Kitchnerism and why Eva Peron is still so popular.
