What you'll do
We will begin our tour in Plaza Italia and walk 4.5 km to the Recoleta cemetery, making a few stops at several interesting places such as the Galileo Galilei planetarium and the Generic Floralis. On each stop we make, you'll learn about our city's history and its connection with Argentinian culture. We will also provide you with photographic tips while we show you the best places in Buenos Aires. Having MATE is one of our traditions and a symbol of friendship for Argentinians, and that's why we want you to join us for a round of MATE while you enjoy the most iconic places of the city. You'll be given the real deal and will receive a mate and some yerba to take back home along with the instructions to prepare it!
