Expert Led Private Buenos Aires City Orientation

Buenos Aires is a vibrant city full of energy and history. It can be intimidating to know where to go, what to do, and how to find anything that's not already listed in a guidebook. In this two-hour sit-down chat and informal tour you will meet a local insider who knows Buenos Aires inside and out, what makes it different and special, and how to feel like a local while you are here. Ideal for your day of arrival, or very beginning of your trip.We begin by meeting you at your hotel or vacation rental where you are staying. Your insider will show up with maps, schedules of events, and tons of know-how about using local transport, where to eat, and fun places to visit. We'll spend about an hour together discussing your trip and answering any questions about what to do while you're here. Next, we'll hit the streets for a basic, 1-hour introduction to your neighborhood. We point out some local attractions—big and small—and orient you to your surroundings. Depending on where you're staying and what interests you we wander farther afield and explore the city more widely. The goal of this experience is to give you insight into the local culture and pace of life in Buenos Aires so that you'll feel a little more local while you're here. We will explain local customs (How do you buy produce in the local market? What's the correct word for that breakfast pastry glistening with sugar? What is the local drink of choice?) and share with you a bit of the area's history. During these two hours together you will have the unique opportunity to learn from your insider's expertise and love for their city.

Belle Epoque Buenos Aires

What was Buenos Aires like at the beginning of the 20th century, when the expression "riche comme un argentin" (as rich as an Argentine) was commonplace? The aim of this walk, in the company of an architect or urban historian, is to examine what ‘Argentine national identity’ exactly is and to trace its expression in the architectural and urban tissue of Buenos Aires stemming from the beginning of the 20th century, the city’s golden age of la Belle Epoque when it became the “Paris of South America."

Our walk will begin at the legislative end of Avenida de Mayo, in front of the National Congress, which will allow us to understand the internal affairs of Argentina before 1930, and to position this rich country, whose wealth was based on export of agricultural products, within a broader context of the international political scene at the beginning of the 20th century. We will move on to a stunning example of private prosperity, going hand in hand with the prosperity of the state: the impressive Palacio Barolo, which was the highest building in Latin America at the time it was constructed. The building will bring up the subject of presentation and auto-presentation of the Argentine citizens, a topic which will lead us to the ultimate public building designed to and for show: the famous Teatro Colón. Here we will try to trace the importance of various display possibilities, onstage as well as in an urban context, looking to public issues such as education, hygiene, and infrastructure and their visual presence within the urban tissue. We will delve into these themes with a look at the Palacio Pizzurno, Escuela Roca, or the Water Company Palace (Palacio de Aguas Corrientes).

We will then commute to the most elegant districts of Buenos Aires; Recoleta and Retiro, the destination of those who fled the southern parts of town to escape the yellow fever epidemic in 1871. As we stroll along the Avenida Alvear, through Plaza Pellegrini and Plaza San Martín, we will be able to admire the private palaces of the Argentine society representing the greatest affinity to the once so demanded 'Parisian style'. Lastly, our walk will lead us to an exquisite example of industrial architecture: the stunning Retiro Train Station. It will give us the opportunity to appreciate the steel construction and decoration. We will also examine the foreign influences in Argentine economy and infrastructure at the turn of the centuries and the incredible effect this means of transport had on the society’s mobility.

By the end of our walk, we will emerge with a strong grasp of the city’s history through its buildings, how the city was shaped during this era as well as a better understanding of the complex and multileveled Argentine identity as a nation.

Expert Led Private Tour of Buenos Aires

At the end of the 19th century Buenos Aires experienced an influx of immigrants on an unprecedented scale. The intense traffic between Europe and Argentina at that time changed the social structure of Buenos Aires drastically and gave place to a new cultural identity resulting from a mixture of Italian, Spanish, Jewish, German and Russian traditions among others. During this three-hour walk we will identify the reasons for the mass immigration, understand the expectations of the newcomers and the reality that awaited them in addition to recognizing the international elements that still persist in the Argentine identity of today. We'll begin our walk where most new overseas arrivals found themselves: at the port. Puerto Madero, one of the city's ports, now a luxury housing district, brings together both the most recent and impressive architecture and 19th-century immigrant history. The monumental Tax Collection House (Aduanas) nearby will provide an opportunity to discuss the agro-exportation policies at the turn of the centuries, that led to Argentina’s economic success around 1900. We'll follow this trail of economic success uphill, to the most prominent square of the county, Plaza de Mayo, to discover the accomplishments of this multicultural nation in the political, financial and cultural fields. The executive mansion and the President’s Office (Casa Rosada), the former city hall (Cabildo), the National Bank of Argentina and the Metropolitan Cathedral all circle the Plaza de Mayo stand as representatives of the executive powers, of the financial policies and religious underpinnings of Argentina. This will serve as a general introduction into the second part of the walk, bohemian San Telmo.We will stroll along the narrow streets of San Telmo, an abandoned aristocratic district which became popular among the less wealthy, later 19th-century newcomers. The area became overpopulated and run-down, though a bohemian character emerged which still shines there today, apparent in the popular Calle Defensa lined with a somehow dilapidated but beautiful architecture, now filled with charming cafes and antiques shops.
