#BuenosAires: Off the Beaten Path - Neighborhoods Uncovered

A unique experience that explores the hidden gems of Buenos Aires while visiting two different neighborhoods that you will not find in guidebooks.

This experience includes uncommonly visited Buenos Aires landmarks that deviate from your typical tourist locations.

This is the experience to get insight into local life to learn about our local food, to see what the locals do and to have an authentic local cultural experience in a non-touristic barrio. All these are important aspects of immersing yourself into and coming to understand Argentine culture.

Throughout the entirety of the experience, I explain immigration, gauchos, tango, and the historical and architectural evolution of the neighborhoods.

We will travel back in time to the 19th and early 20th century to discover amazing places such as: a historic market built in 1889; an incredible old fashioned barber shop that is also a living museum; a pulperia (gauchos’ bar); a truly impressive 19th century tea/coffee house; a legendary tango salon that was once used as a grain silo (this unbelievable salon will amaze you with its bizarre variety of artifacts and art); and one of the most beautiful churches in the city and where Pope Francis was baptized in.
