Have a 3-course meal and sip a glass of Argentine wine while enjoying professional dancers performing to live music on an Argentina honeymoon tour.
Any Argentina tour must include the “Paris of South America,” Buenos Aires, and don’t stop there. In addition to Buenos Aires sightseeing, there are plenty of places near Buenos Aires that you should tack on to your trip. Consider a trip to the wine country of Mendoza or a visit to Argentina’s famous gauchos. Iguazu Falls tours from Buenos Aires are popular, as Brazil and Argentina are two South American countries easy to combine into one itinerary.

Things to do in Buenos Aires
Neighborhoods to visit on a Buenos Aires city tour
San TelmoThere are a number of beautiful neighborhoods to visit in Buenos Aires. Starting with San Telmo. The streets of San Telmo are somewhere between antiquated and modern, beautiful and crumbling. Graffiti is everywhere, as is some of the filteado scrollwork that I was so looking forward to seeing. San Telmo was once where the rich porteños lived at the turn of the century until they fled the yellow fever in favor of the now-posh barrio of Palermo. So the 19th-century buildings retain an elegant decay, with marble adornments, intricate facades, and tall balconies, but many are in disrepair. There has been some gentrification in the past decades, as the revival of tango milongas draw a crowd. On a Sunday, walk through the crowds on Calle Defensa towards the San Telmo Market. The outdoor crafts fair is where calabasas, records, t-shirts, and other trinkets are sold. There are some antiques sold in Plaza Dorrego, and inside the indoor market as well, but all the action seems centered on the street.
PalermoPalermo is known for its cafes, bars, nightclubs, boutique shops, museums, and parks. Visit the Evita Museum - well laid-out, built appropriately in the house where Evita set up a charitable home for the homeless. The first floor has a room with mirrors where nuevo tango music plays and a movie reel of Evita's funeral runs. Other displays on the first floor tell of her childhood and adolescence, the youngest of several children who showed an interest in acting at a young age. There are pictures of her modeling at 15. Another stop well worth included on a tour is the MALBA art museum which includes pieces by Xu Solar and Diego Rivera.
Puerto MaderoPuerto Madero is a regenerated dock area and as such is a very modern part of the city and walking is easy here. All the streets in Puerto Madero, which is like an island connected by bridges, are named after women. And the Woman's Bridge is beautiful - it is cantilevered and opens horizontally.
Alternative Buenos Aires ToursTake a Buenos Aires Street Art Tour for an unusual insight into the city. There are a couple of options:
Southern Buenos Aires City Tour - Street ArtThe south of Buenos Aires is an area with small houses and traditional cafés. Visit the neighborhoods of La Boca, Barracas, and San Telmo to see artworks by artists from Argentina and other countries, such as the heart-touching portrait of a kid named David painted by Cuban artist Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada. The highlight of the tour is a massive mural painted solely by one artist: Alfredo Segatori, aka El Pelado ("the bald guy" in Spanish). His piece of art is called ‘El Regreso de Quinquela’ and pays homage to Quinquela Martín, a late 19th-century post-impressionist painter born and raised in La Boca neighborhood. As he knew he was getting close to breaking the record of the world’s biggest mural painted by a single artist, El Pelado integrated the neighborhood of Barracas in his mural.
Northern Buenos Aires City Tour - Street ArtPalermo, Colegiales, and Belgrano are colorful and trendy neighborhoods where artists from a variety of backgrounds leave their marks through stunning street art. Pass by a facade completely covered by Gualicho’s fantasy world of friendly cartoon characters or see the mysterious paintings of Pum Pum, a famous street artist who hides her identity.
