Day 2: Buenos Aires

Meet your private guide and transportation at your hotel for a half-day tour of Buenos Aires including its ancient passages. The recently discovered ancient tunnels of Buenos Aires are one of the city’s best kept secrets. Depart for Plaza de Mayo, the city’s founding site and genuine starting point of Buenos Aires’ urban development. Next is trendy San Telmo, a former enclave for local aristocracy. In San Telmo you’ll get to visit one of the recently unearthed ancient subterranean tunnels, a part of a 3,000 sqm. labyrinth below the streets of San Telmo, made up of a long corridor with vaulted ceilings and display cabinets exhibiting many items and utensils recovered during the excavation. From ancient times, many myths have been created around the tunnels: people said they witnessed secret encounters, disappearances, murders or even political conspiracies.

Other areas that are included in your tour include La Boca, (which was strongly shaped by the working class Italian immigrants, with its make shift houses made from scrap materials found in local shipyards), Puerto Madero - Buenos Aires’ latest and most sophisticated neighborhood, and La Recoleta, where a short stop is made at the gorgeous Plaza San Martín, the Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar, (the city’s second oldest church), and the celebrated Recoleta Cemetery, an imposing labyrinth of ornate graves and mausoleums where some of the most important characters of Argentina’s political and cultural life (including Eva Peron) are buried. The last stop on the tour is at the area known as Palermo Woods. Next to the woods lie the splendid palaces built by the wealthy classes in the early 20th century to rival with Paris. After having gained deep insight in this culturally rich city, you will be returned to your hotel.

Day 3: Buenos Aires

This bike tour with your private English-speaking guide is without doubt the most interesting and entertaining way to get to know Buenos Aires. Learn about its history while riding on the bike paths and experiencing the bustling surroundings. You will visit the main quarters: El Puerto, la Reserva Ecológica, La Boca, San Telmo, Plaza San Matrín and much, much more. Your guide will pick you up and drop you off at the hotel.

A visit to Buenos Aires would be incomplete without a tango show. Tonight, you will enjoy a Tango Show and dinner at La Esquina de Carlos Gardel! You will be picked up from your hotel and driven to the Tango Show, on a private vehicle with Spanish-speaking driver.

Watch as professional Tango dancers take the room by storm, whipping feet, hair, dresses and heels along the floor and enchanting the audience with the romance and heat of this dance. The Argentine Tango has drawn its influences from all regions and settings, and is famous for its intermingling of styles and fusions of world dance techniques. Embrace this authentic dance in the place where it originated, as you enjoy dinner and drinks. Enjoy the unique sexual magnetism of the Tango performed by some of the best Tango dancers and singers. Its origins are traced back to the 1880’s, and its birthplace are the suburbs: which accounts for its deep malevolent, sexual, violent and troublemaker contents. Tango is – since its origins – a vital expression mixed up with the particular form of breathing, dressing, talking, and loving of the “porteños” that creates a new style: The Tango Style. Taste the most delightful typical Argentine and international dishes, the specialty is prime beef, with the best local wines in a charming atmosphere with excellent service. A superb orchestra will make you discover the secret of the music of Buenos Aires. At the end of the evening, you will be returned to your hotel with a private vehicle and driver.

Note: An English-speaking guide can be added at additional cost. Please speak to your sales consultant to discuss.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Peru. The Kensington representatives took all of the stress out of the logistics and were very welcoming and knowledgeable.

  • Gerri G. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    Excellent service from our Kensington staff contact, and terrific guides and hotels. All transfers at airports were seamless.

  • Mauricio G. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    We were absolutely wowed and impressed by the level of detail in both the planning and accommodation of our needs. This trip was planned on a very short notice so we did not have high expectations. However, every moment of our trip from airport transfers, guides, sights to the culture of Peru were delivered leaving memories beyond our expectation. Thanks again to Nella and all guides in Peru.

  • William M. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    All the guides were extremely helpful and courteous.

  • Lisa H. — May 12, 2016 — South America

    We have been on numerous trips with Kensington and have always been more than pleased with ALL aspects: friendly, patient and knowledgeable staff, various personalized itineraries, ease of reaching agent with questions, accommodations, tour guides, transportation, flexibility, activities offered, guidance/suggestions, concern/contacting us when we're traveling, welcome gift at our hotel and more. We know we're in excellent hands from beginning to end with Kensington -- a top of the line agency with personalized, custom trips of a lifetime- at an affordable price. Thanks Kensington!

  • Dan W. — May 12, 2016 — South America

    Sales consultant was very helpful and patient with last minute planning. Trip was well organized. On the ground in Peru, people were very responsive. I was very happy with the end result.

  • Rosanne R. — May 12, 2016 — South America

    I was very impressed with the timeliness, courteousness and knowledge of our drivers and guides. It was luxurious and comforting to be in their hands! Frederico was wonderful in BA, as well as Vicky for the half-day tour, and Vivienne in Iguazu was excellent. Appreciated the help with the itinerary from Matt's pre-trip. Also loved the flexibility of choosing our own dates and length of time in each place. Top notch agency!

  • Minaxi P. — May 12, 2016 — South America

    I was very impressed with Kensington. Our tour guides were wonderful and very well educated. we especially liked our guide in Scared Valley and Cusco. We will be using Kensington again. Thank you!

  • Bonita T. — May 13, 2016 — South America

    Erika was great. Darwig was great. Alberto was great. Caesar was great. Service at hotels was stellar. Had a wonderful time.

  • Gerald R. — May 18, 2016 — South America

    I would highly recommend the Explora Lodge as the truly only best way to experience the park on the the Chilean side. The hotel's setting inside the park is spectacular and the overall experience staying at the lodge is excellent - top quality dining, service, and guided activities. The El Splendor hotel in El Calafate Argentina is perfectly adequate, and being within walking distance of restaurants and shops in town is a plus. I highly recommend the gourmet cruise I took on Lake Argentina to see two of the glaciers up close as well as numerous blue icebergs. The food and service were excellent. Also the hotels in Buenos Aires and Santiago were very good and in good locations.
