PERSONALIZED BILINGUAL PRIVATE GUIDED TOURS OF BUENOS AIRES
In addition to our regular city tours, we would also like to offer you some very interesting Private tours to introduce you to Buenos Aires. These are given by our friend, Cristina, who has a special interest in the history of the City of Buenos Aires.
Cristina loves to meet new tourists and share her historical and architectural knowledge with them, in order to give our guests an overview and better feel of different aspects of the city. Cristina is currently getting a Masters Degree in “History of Architecture and Urban Culture” at the Universidad Di Tella (Bs As) and is a research and teaching assistant of history and economic history at that same institution. She has been a bi-lingual tour guide of Buenos Aires for eight years.
These are some proposals for you to consider so you can better discoverBA!
1. NORTHERN NEIGHBORHOODS OF BUENOS AIRES
The northern district of Buenos Aires is considered to be the aristocratic part of town, where the upper class built their French-style mansions and parks at the end of the 19th century. We’ll visit the neighborhoods of Retiro, Recoleta and Palermo to discover the architecture, history and atmosphere of the part of Buenos Aires that better fits the nickname of “Paris of South America”. We’ll start in the neighborhood of Retiro to visit Plaza San Martin and its surroundings. Later, we’ll walk to Recoleta to visit the Recoleta Cemetery (a ‘city within the city’ where the elite built their incredible mausoleums --it’s also well-known because Evita Perón is buried there). We’ll also see the Nuestra Señora del Pilar Church and park area. Lastly, we’ll head towards the neighborhood of Palermo, through the embassy district and towards the rose garden and parks.
Finishing point: Monumento de los Españoles (Av. Sarmiento and Av. Libertador, Palermo). You can either walk back or take a taxi or public transportation.
