Small-Group City Tour of Buenos Aires

813 reviews
Buenos Aires’ neighborhoods each have a distinctive character from the historic barrios of San Telmo and La Boca, to the beautiful parks and plazas of Palermo and Recoleta, and the modern skyscrapers of Puerto Madero. This small-group tour is ideal for first-time visitors or those short on time, visiting all of the top attractions in just half a day.

So much more popular than when I first visited 15 years ago. Book if possible or prepare to queue (once covid situation is over). An iconic restaurant with great atmosphere, meals, drinks and entertainment. A must-visit.

This is Buenos Aires oldest and most famous cafe. We had to wait 30 minutes in line but when we got inside, there were plenty of tables and we were waited on promptly. It appeared that they let the entire waiting line in at that time. Our local bed and breakfast said to order a submarino (glass of milk with a chocolate bar). Since we arrived mid-afternoon, it was a delicious selection for us to split. We were able to enjoy the historic interior of the cafe at a less inflated price at about $5 USD. When we left, there was no waiting line.

A beautiful.classic cafe in the heart of Buenos Aire. A variety of coffee, tea and chocolate drinks plus food options. The thing to have here is hot chocolate and churros but since it was almost 80 degrees I opted for a frozen cappuccino which was delicious. My friend had a double scoop of dulce de leche ice cream. I bought a pound of their coffee to bring back for a friend and he said it was wonderful. Ambiance is lovely, stained glass ceiling, wood, brass, marble - historical pictures on the wall - don't miss it1

Loved this place. We watched the tango & folk show. Loved it! The building/architecture/interior just amazing and what I expected to experience. Perfect place for a tango enthusiast or a lover of anything "porteño". When you enter, it feels as you are stepping back in time. The service was the only negative, a bit slow! Need to reserve a table with ample time.
