From working-class La Boca to the well-to-do streets of Recoleta, Buenos Aires is comprised of many distinct neighbourhoods, each with their own unique style to explore. Today you’ll enjoy a city tour. The tour starts with a pick-up from your hotel. Travelling down the main avenue in Buenos Aires ‘9 de Julio Avenue’ you’ll pass the Colon Theatre and the Obelisk. Soon after stop at Plaza de Mayor where you’ll embark on a walking tour, seeing things such-as the cathedral, pink house and pyramid of May. Moving on to San Telmo where we’ll make a quick stop. Sunday is the main market day where a large market takes over the streets with many stalls selling antiques, hand-made crafts and souvenirs. Next visit La Boca the colourful neighbourhood at the mouth of the Riachuelo river. La Boca was first populated by Italian immigrants and the European culture is noticeable! Stop at the colourful Caminito street to get some photos and you’ll have some time to walk around. The next stop is Recoleta one of Buenos Aires wealthiest neighbourhoods, often referred to as the Paris of the South. Head inside the La Recoleta Cemetery, which contains the graves of some very notable people in Argentina such-as Eva Peron, the second wife of Argentine President Juan Perón and served as the First Lady of Argentina from 1946 until her death in 1952. Finally enjoy an included lunch at the Museo Evita Restaurante. After lunch you have the option of visiting the Evita museum on your own (not included in the price of this trip) or to be transferred back at your hotel. If you opt to visit the museum, you will need to make your own way back to your hotel. Housed in a striking 1923 mansion Evita museum celebrates the Argentine heroine with videos, historical photos, books and posters. However, the prize memorabilia has to be her wardrobe: dresses, shoes, handbags, hats and blouses are all on display. Please note as the transfer is a shared service, should you decide to visit the museum after lunch you will need to make your own way back to the hotel afterwards. <br/><br/>Included Activities:<br/>-<description>Buenos Aires - City Tour with Lunch</description><br/><br/>Optional Activities:<br/>-<description>Buenos Aires - Milonga night including tango class & dinner</description>

Intrepid was started by two friends from Melbourne, Australia, in 1988 after embarking on a trip through the wilds of Africa in a modified ex-council truck, crammed with friends, supplies, a handful of aviator sunglasses and a case or two of beer. Could this type of travel be something others would be interested in? The answer was a resounding yes and today Intrepid send 100,000 travellers across the globe each year with the help of a staff of 1,000.
After three decades, founders Darrell and Manch, feel they know what travellers want. They get that it’s a big decision to fly across the world to wander the souks of Marrakech or enjoy a dreamy Angkor sunrise. They understand that you’re looking for a balance of inclusions and free time, a mix of classic highlights and local secrets you won’t find on Google. And of course, an authentic real life experience. Their leaders are born and raised in-country and they know their destination better than anyone. So you’ll do more than just see a place, you’ll live it. Small groups, big adventures and responsible travel – that’s Intrepid’s thing. With 1,000 trips in a variety of styles across 100 countries, you’re sure to find something you like.
Intrepid believe the real magic happens well away from the beaten path. It’s the little noodle bars, hidden galleries and backstreet bodegas and real life experiences you won’t find in a search engine. Real life experiences are those moments you know you’re really alive and experiencing something special. While it could be the instant you see one of the world’s great icons for the first time, it is more likely to be the moment you find yourself in the middle of a village square soccer game, being treated to a home-cooked meal by your new local friends or sharing a laugh with your fellow travellers as you try a new mode of transport … camel anyone? These unexpected moments are what travelling with Intrepid is all about, giving you a trip like no other.
Intrepid realises the world is a really big place. And there’s a plethora of different languages to learn, borders to cross and cultures to negotiate. Small group adventure travel makes these things easy and allows you to maximise your precious time off. Instead of worrying about logistics, you can focus all your energy on having the experience of a lifetime. Their tour groups are small enough to feel like you’re exploring a destination independently, but big enough to create a good social vibe. Group size will vary depending on where and how you’re travelling, but the average group size is about 10.
Intrepid’s themed trips encompass all hobbies and interests or could pique an interest in a new hobby you never knew you needed. From foodie explorations across Asia or India, sailing the seas in Thailand or the Caribbean, wildlife encounters in the Serengeti or Antarctica, scenic cycling or walking to Base Camp or through Tibet, and epic expeditions in Burma or Russia, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Intrepid is committed to operating in a responsible manner, incorporating the principles of sustainable development in the way they provide travellers with real life experiences. These values are ingrained in the culture and daily operations of every Intrepid office and tour. In addition, they hope their travellers also demonstrate the principles of responsible travel - respecting people, cultures and local environments; in the distribution of wealth; in good will and cross-cultural sharing; and in contributing to sustainable development.
