Colonial Buenos Aires Tour & Food


Colonial Buenos Aires Tour & Food

About this experience

It’s common to hear on any tour in Buenos Aires that our nation, and, in particular, our city, is a melting pot of many nationalities.

For example, from our "mother country", the Kingdom of Spain, we inherited influences such as our language and our food that still persist today. But, with regards to architecture, our Spanish heritage is virtually non-existent, especially when you compare it to that of other Latin American cities. This becomes evident when you look at Plaza de Mayo and its surroundings.
However, by studying key buildings, sites, and churches, we can gather information about Spanish colonial life between 1536, the year of the first foundation of the city, and 1810, the year of the May Revolution.

Our way starts in Plaza de Mayo with our Local Juan Ignacio whom will guide you through history and take you back to colonial age.
And ends in Palermo at a local chef's house where you 'll try some Argentinian colonial appetizers with and amazing Buenos Aires Skyline.

The tour shows:
1- Casa de Santiago Liniers / 2- Iglesia San Ignacio de Loyola / 3-The Secret Tunnels where worked the Office of the Procurator of the Jesuit Missions/ 4- Museo del Bicentenario.

Includes access to 3 & 4.

Appetizers are
1- Crispy white polenta, salami caroya, and dried tomatoes

    Wij vonden deze food tour heel erg leuk. We hebben veel gezien (en heel lekker gegeten) en Ramiro was een erg leuke reisleider. We voelden ons helemaal op ons gemak bij hem, en we hoorden heel veel leuke verhalen van hem. In 1 woord 'Top'! Dankjewel!

    Grazie alla guida di Ramiro ho fatto un tour enogastronico serale privato molto interessante. Lo consiglio a chi come me è interessato a scoprire sapori nuovi. Ramiro mi ha accompagnato in un ottima esperienza culinaria facendomi assaggiare buonissimi piatti tipici di Argentina e ottimi vini.Il voto a Ramiro e al suo tour è di 5 stelle

    Best mixed up experience to do in Buenos Aires. A lot of storytelling, a lot of the folk stories of Buenos Aires, a tour that covers a lot of ground and the crown jewel, the food tour! Amazing, we scouted through a lot of different and unique tastes and ethnic foods to end up at a cozy and beautiful house! Totally awesome! Do it!

    What an incredible tour! We saw things that I never knew existed in Buenos Aires. It is definetly an out of the grid tour, with amazing people and really tasty food! Ending at a chef house to eat and chat was a great end for a beautiful day!

    La pasé increíble. El recorrido es mágico y lleno de grandes lugares para parar a comer. Las historias y los paseos son muy asomborosos. Muy recomendable para ver una nueva cara de la ciudad de Buenos Aires y de paso comer como se debe.

    Die Tour führte uns durch viele schöne Plätze. Wir haben viele Orte kennen gelernt, die wir gar nicht gewusst haben und während der Tour haben wir für wirklich leckere und einzigartige Geschmäcke zu stoppen. Empfohlen für Essen Junkies und Tour Liebhaber.
