Argentina – Tours

Tours in Argentina

From the sprawling metropolis of thriving Buenos Aires and its magnificent European architecture, to the enormous snow-capped peaks of Patagonia and the Andes – this is Argentina.

Kick-start your journey with a trip to the exuberant cosmopolitan capital Buenos Aires, taking a moment to stand still and admire the unique, European-inspired architecture and vivid street-art scene. Explore the port town of Ushuaia – a scenic hub set against a stunning backdrop of the soaring Martial Mountains, just seven miles from the equally dramatic scenery of Tierra del Fuego National Park and its plethora of cascading waterfalls and subantarctic forests.

Avid explorers and wildlife enthusiasts will revel in our Patagonia Discovery tour, embarking on a whale-watching cruise along Peninsula Valdes and spotting the adorable Magellanic penguin, before hiking up the vast turquoise Perito Moreno glacier.

Our Wine Tasting in Mendoza tour is perfect for connoisseurs, with guided tours of the region’s famous vineyards and the opportunity to enjoy a spot of wine-tasting. Wander along the Mendoza’s streets adorned with shrubbery and awash with greens, taking a leisurely stroll through the quaint Pedro del Castillo Square.

Expert Tips

Karen

Destination Executive

"Iguazu Falls – make sure you have the time to visit them twice.  Once from the Brazil side and once from the Argentina side, as you’ll get a completely different experience.  Both of which are fabulous."

Nick

Senior Destination Manager

"Meat-lovers will revel in the huge doorstop-sized steaks and parrillada eateries - the meats are famous here for a reason. "

Martyn

Destination Executive

"If you're going to be using public transport, invest in a SUBE card. They're valid on trains, buses and the Underground. It saves you a lot of hassle, especially seeing as change here is hard to come by."

Frequently Asked Questions

The peso is the official currency of Argentina, made up of 100 centavos. ATMs are widely available, but do remember that there is a charge for every withdrawal - you may want to exchange your cash prior to arriving to ensure you won't be charged heavily for small withdrawals. 

Dance – Argentina is widely known as the birthplace of the tango – a passionate improvisational social partner dance that has recently seen a resurgence due to mainstream Western television dance shows.

Sport – The country is synonymous with football too, having won the FIFA World Cup twice, and finishing as runners-up three times.

Wine – Declared as Argentina’s national liquor in 2010, Argentine wine is now recognised the world over. Unlike many other exporters of wine, the vineyards here aren’t at risk of fungi, insects and grape diseases, due to the low humidity and high altitudes. This vastly reduces the need for pesticide.  

Argentina is particularly fond of parrillada (barbecue) and grilled meats – here you can enjoy sizzling slabs of world-class beef, and equally impressive street food – here’s a few you have to try:
• choripan – a grilled beef and pork sausage sandwich marinated in chimichurri sauce
• omito – a hearty, flash-grilled steak sandwich topped with fried egg, lettuce, onions, chimichurri sauce, tomatoes, mayonnaise and cheese
• bondiola – roasted pork shoulder, seasoned with salsa and lemon juice, served on a thick baguette, topped with fries, cheese and herbs

A hive of energetic streets, expansive wildernesses, exquisite food and a proud blend of European cultures and influences – Argentina simply has to be experienced.

Did you know...

• In late 2001-2002, Argentina had five presidents in ten days.
• In 2015, an Argentine appeals court gave female orangutan Sandra rights to life, liberty, and freedom from harm – the same rights as a human. Prior to this, Sandra was born into captivity and kept in a zoo for 29 years, before animal rights campaigners petitioned for her to be considered an individual, rather than a ‘thing’.
• On 20 July every year, Argentina celebrates Friendship Day, with locals hosting large, friendly gatherings of family and acquaintances, old and new.
