What makes Argentina a great destination

 Why Argentina

What comes to mind when you think of Argentina, it surely is passion. Passion for the country, the stunning tango found on virtually every street corner, beautiful horses, playing polo, great food, big steaks, passion shines through it all.

Buenos Aires is of course stunning, but Argentina is so much more than this handsome, almost French city. You can travel way down south to Patagonia and its amazing glaciers- like the Periot Moreno Glacier, the roaring Iguazu Falls - shared with its neighboring country Brazil, visit the stunning wine areas in Mendoza, the wetlands, and experience staying at a true gaucho farm.

The possibilities are endless and we warmly invite you and your clients to our beautiful country.

Day 2 - Buenos Aires
Breakfast at the hotel.  
Snap Shots of Buenos Aires (City Tour)   
Buenos Aires is an exceptional, dynamic, sophisticated and overwhelming city. An exquisite combination of a European flair and the charm of Latin American cities. This tour provides an in-depth introduction to its history and architecture, the culture of its people, anecdotes and secrets. A three-hour ride through the paradigmatic areas of the city: the lively and frenzied downtown area, the “aristocratic” northern neighborhoods and the working class districts in the south. The Buenos Aires highlights will be visited, acknowledging the transformation of a village that grew into a mega city.  (Duration 4: hs) 
Off the tourist track for lunch- Bodegones
Buenos Aires, as any big city around the world, has many unique places known only by locals. In our case we have the privilege to still have unique small places with lots of charm and character where guest can feel the local culture. We call them bodegones where you will see the Italian and Spanish influence, where portions are large and waiters are professionals. We like to offer this as a lunch option for groups. *Note that most of these places are small so for big groups we have to divide the group up. 
We can enhance the tour including some ideas such as:   
Option 1 - Let’s experience a wonderful ride on the original Subway with a coffee stop at Café Tortoni  
There are 5 subway lines running at the moment but this one, Line A, is the oldest and of course a very beautiful one!  From the Head Line Plaza de Mayo, we’ll ride for one station (just two blocks away) to get off at Peru Station, a well preserved station as in the origins. Advertisements from the early 40’s are still shown on their walls, transforming it into a live museum.  After a short visit, we’ll catch the next train and we’ll stop at Piedras Station.   Tickets will be purchased in advance, and delivered by the tour guide. It is the oldest train in the whole of South America. You can take photographs inside this magic and interesting place.  This wooden train which amazingly is still running will lead us to the Tortoni Café. 
Café Tortoni (the most traditional Cafe in Buenos Aires) It has been the gathering place for the intellectuals, such as the famous Tango singer Carlos Gardel, and Jorge Luis Borges, the father of Argentine literature, to famous tango dancers and popular politicians. The faces of years gone by are preserved in alleys of memories along the ancient wallpapered walls.  A gentle glow radiates from the chandeliers over the well-polished wooden tables that coffee has been served on since 1858.  
Option  2 - La Boca visit to the world-famous Club Atletico Boca Juniors
La Boca is home to the world-famous Club Atletico Boca Juniors, the biggest football club in Argentina—and possibly the whole continent. In the bowels of this stadium is a new, high-tech museum, with 72 digital video monitors playing highlights of the best seasons, and a 360° video show, which supposedly feels a bit like you’re playing for the club yourself. Guided visit to Boca Juniors museum and the interior of the stadium. The Stadium was inaugurated in 1940 and it was popularly renamed as "La Bombonera" (The Chocolate Box). At the entrance hall there is a mural painting by Benito Quinquela Martín, depicting the colours of the institution (blue and yellow). Another mural painting,  by Pérez Celis, featuring the club and the neighbourhood characters can be seen on the external facade.  The Museo de la Pasión Boquense (Boca Juniors Fans Museum) is located on Brandsen street, a short distance from the stadium. It exhibits a collection of objects and audiovisual production about the club history. We could stop for a short visit to the stadium.  
Option 3 Recoleta- short visit to Recoleta Cemetery
Evita was venerated by the Argentine working class, mocked by the grandes dames of Buenos Aires society, and misunderstood by the military establishment. Through all of this she came to symbolize a wealthy Argentina, full of pride and with great expectations immediately following the Second World War. Her meteoric rise from her beginnings as a poor villager in the backwaters of the interior to a status as one of the most intriguing, engaging, and powerful figures in a male-dominated culture is a tale worth retelling because of its uniqueness.   
Evening activities 
Deluxe vintage cars will pick passengers up after the show. A couple dressed in tango costumes will be at the hotel accompanying guest to their car.      
Tango Lessons
“TANGO” the most sensual of all dances under the guidance of an expert tango teacher and assistants. You will be taught posture, the language of the hands, the basic steps and figures (the "Eight", "Sandwich with Mirror", "Sandwich with fence, hook and Mirror", "The Walk"). (90 minutes lesson)  Lesson will take 1:30hs and will be given by 6 couple of instructors & 2 assistants. This can be adjusted according to the group.   
Venue to display this activity Palacio Rodriguez Peña or similar according to availability. Teachers will give Tango certificates to everyone in a “Tango ceremony”.   
Leather fitting at the hotel
Tourists choose the cities to visit due to their landscape – natural and urban-, their comfort, their people, and their culture. The city’s design has become one of most outstanding and renowned internationally, typical of the culture of Buenos Aires, appointed by the Unesco as “City of design” in 2005. We think it is a good option to benefit our guest with a personalized leather fitting and tea party at their hotel, so they get a chance to get tailor made items at a special prize.  
At evening enjoy a Dinner Tango Show 
Option 1: “La Esquina de Carlos Gardel”  
At the end of the XIXth. Century when the town of Buenos Aires was trying to become a city and the tango started to spread amongst the locals and immigrants, one of the  most picturesque quarters was “El Abasto”.  A working city during the day and a where the tango prevailed during the night.     
The Abasto neighbourhood, the main supply market to the city (hence its name, in Spanish, abastecer means to supply) witnessed the rise of a popular idol “ Carlos  Gardel”.  He grew up in this are and later became the personification of the tango itself. Today, more than 100 years later, “Esquina Carlos Gardel” opens its doors in the original site of the restaurant and hotel where Carlos Gardel gathered with his friends to dine and sing.  This tango club and restaurant, decorated in an Art Nouveau style, recreating the sophistication and luxury of the salons of old, with its up to date technology and first class artistic performances, together with a good cuisine, will guarantee and unforgettable night of tango.     
Second option: Gala Tango   
A unique place because of its architecture and decoration made of Gala Tango the place most distinguished of Buenos Aires. From the moment that you take the first contact with the Gala Tango till the last part of the show, you will feel you are in a different place and will live a real experience. Gourmet dinner to the menu, Tango & Folklore Show, among special wine list are services offered at Gala Tango.
The venue is located in the heart of San Telmo, very special & traditional “Tango area” of Buenos Aires.   
Third option : Rojo Tango 
Is the result of the vision and creative genius of Alan Faena and Philippe Starck, a new concept in hotels and entertainment. Conceived as a new lifestyle, it is unique in  its category and it represents the highest level of quality and service. It offers experiences carried out with emphasis on details and creativity. The design for each space is totally revolutionary as regards hotel design.   Inspired in the myth hotels and transatlantic ships of the beginning of the last century, it also offers a new concept through its UNIVERSE, which shelters the Market restaurant, the Swimming Pool with its Pool Bar, the Living Room, the Bistro restaurant, the Cabaret, the Academy and its Terrace – true stages to live the most amazing experiences.   
The Cabaret  
This show is a unique experiences not just a regular Tango show but also a special event in a unique location with a sophistic and refined menu.    
You will enjoy the most incredible Tango Show in an extraordinary place: THE CABARET, which will transport us to the atmosphere of the Cabarets and Tango   
Houses of the beginning of the Century. The choreography is a combination of modern and sensual tango dance; its live music creates an atmosphere, which will give you the sensation of being part of the whole thing.

Day 9 - Buenos Aires/ Iguazu
Brazilian Falls Your morning will begin with a 40 min drive  to the Brazilian side of the falls which will give you your first encounter of the true magnitude of this natural wonder. Upon arrival to the park a transfer to one of the parks vehicles will be made and then we will continue on our way.  It is said that the “Argentine side provides the falls and the Brazilian side the views.” Here you will walk through paths high above the tumultuous river below. Dusky Swifts dart behind the cascading falls to  their nests, enjoy the escort of colourful butterflies, and the curious antics of the adorable little creature known as a Coati. Look high in the trees for the exotic Toco Toucans, and enjoy the bountiful flowers and bromeliads, which hang delicately from the trees and fauna around you. Walk to the furthest catwalk and bask in the over spray from the falls, or just enjoy the incredible view of over 216 falls plummeting before you. Important Note: Some nationalities needs visa to enter Brazil. Please check with the Brazilian Consulate

This club is one of the most exclusive and elegant places in Buenos Aires. It is located at Puerto Madero from where you can see the city. We can arrange the reception at the Terrace with livings where guest can sit down and relax. Dinner will be served in round banquet tables with flower arragements.  
Good bye Buenos Aires at Casa Minima The narrowest  house   
The recently restored narrowest house of the city, which for decades could only be admired from the outside, will today whisper stories and myths that can be listened to within the romantic walls of its centuries-old patio.  
The Narrowest House in BA, situated on land that used to be part of the large house, has retained its original materials from the early XVIII century. With its display of clay walls and hundred-year-old remains of old plaster, the small house beckons us to visit the corner, where the ghosts of early traditions of Buenos Aires intermingle with the myth of the emancipated slave, revalidated today through the oral tradition in the San Telmo neighborhood.   
If you feel you have seen almost everything Buenos Aires has to offer, please visit Casa Minima and let us surprise you.
