2nd day in Buenos Aires:
The Half Day City Tour through Buenos Aires begins in the morning, a time that will allow you to discover a city with strong cultural contrasts exemplified by the varied architecture present in historical buildings, monuments, museums, theatres and open areas. At noon you will have lunch at a very good restaurant in the Puerto Madero area.
In the afternoon you will go to the northern part of Buenos Aires in order to visit the neighborhoods of Tigre and San Isidro. As soon as you arrive in Tigre you will board on a premium cruise to view the riverfront homes and admire the scenery on the Tigre Delta of Paraná: An exotic subtropical forest formed by thousands of small islands that can only be reached by water. Once you finish the cruise you will be taken around the elegant homes in the residential neighborhoods of the northern suburbs.
You will then have a chance to visit the cathedral of San Isidro and pass by the Presidential Residence (Quinta de Olivos), the Port of Olivos, the 'Monumental'- the popular name we give to the Football Stadium of River Plate Club- and the University Campus of Buenos Aires. An English speaking tour guide with a driver will be at your disposal to show you the most important tourist spots of Buenos Aires all day long and will drop you off at night to the comfort of the Alvear Palace hotel.

Then you will enjoy an unforgettable Argentine asado (barbeque) with selected Argentine beef and Argentine wine.

We have bilingual commentators that do a great job of explaining the fundamentals of the match to our guests.
