      • Skip the crowds: You do not have to go along with a crowd.  This is a leisurely paced, 3-hour walking tour limited to six persons. 
      • Guided tour:  Questions are encouraged. Your docent is a Ph.D. or MA level expert on the history of Buenos Aires who will lead your exploration without using a script. 
      • Puerto Madero:  Imagine the old while being dazzled by the new. It takes imagination to envision this ancient dock and warehouse district as the major port and immigration center for the country. With the opening of the New Port of Buenos Aires, warehouses and their history were demolished, contemporary skyscrapers rose, and the Puerto Madero Barrio became one of the trendiest boroughs in Buenos Aires.
      • Customs House (Aduanas):  If you marvel at European architecture not in its natural surroundings you will be in awe of the French neoclassical Customs House. This government building set in the Montserrat section of the city sets a standard for the extremely well preserved European architecture found throughout the city.
      • Plaza de Mayo:  Walk pathways that were established with the founding of the city in 1580. The plaza has been touchstone for political activity in Argentina since 1810 when it was the scene of the May Revolution that led to independence from Spain. The plaza is surrounded by buildings representing power seats in Argentinian government and society, the Office of the President of Argentina, the National Bank of Argentina and the Metropolitan Cathedral. 
      • President’s Office (Casa Rosada): You won’t need rose colored glasses to see the baby pink façade of Casa Rosado, the executive mansion and office of the President of Argentina. It sits at the end of Plaza de Mayo and houses the presidential museum. It is a National Historic Monument.
      • San Telmo Barrio:  Museums, antique stores, old churches, and a semi-permanent antique fair attracts natives and visitors alike to the “illuminated block” of San Telmo. Once the home of colonial aristocrats and the wealthy, in its decline it reinvented itself as bohemian quarter famous for its ornate turn of the century architecture. San Telmo is the oldest neighborhood in the city.
      • Bring the little ones: Our docents are family friendly.
      • Flexibility: The tickets purchased on GoBe can be used any time the during our published tour schedule. So, if your travel plans change, there is no need to rebook. Don't like the weather? Go another day. The choice is yours.
