Detailed Description

The excitement of Argentina and the beauty of Chile are timeless, so you are sure to have a spectacular adventure that will overflow with flavor and fun, discovery and charm on your 10-day tour. The excitement will begin with your arrival in Buenos Aires as your private transfer will greet you at the airport and escort you to your luxurious hotel in the serene Recoleta district.

Wake the next morning, and your guide will greet you in your hotel lobby and escort you on an engaging tour of Buenos Aires’s unique neighborhoods that range from the bustling streets of La Boca to the antique shops of San Telmo. In the evening, you can indulge in the inspired cuisine of a classic Argentinian restaurant.

The next day, your private transfer will bring you to the airport for your flight to Mendoza. Enjoy a half-day tour of the city’s tranquil streets and charming public plazas, and you will also have time to visit a chocolaterie for a tour of the delicious confection and how it is made.
