DAY 2: 02 Sep 2018 (Sunday) - Buenos Aires - Rojo Tango Dinner & Show - SIB

The Faena Hotel, where Rojo Tango is located, is a five star hotel in the upscale Puerto Madero district. Designed by the famous Alan Faena, the brick hotel is a beautiful setting for this dramatic, cabaret style tango show. The Rojo Tango dinner and show promises “love, passion, madness and glamour” expressed through the beauty and history of tango. The venue is all red - the curtains, carpeting and chairs— the show plays to this ambiance of romance and melodrama and is more glam than tradition - but is still good fun and the food is tasty. This morning (or afternoon if you prefer) you will be collected by a local guide and a driver for a tour of Buenos Aires. The guide will take you on and off the beaten track in this lively and beautiful city. You will have a car at your disposal, but we recommend getting out and walking for some of the tour. Obviously the tour will take in the main highlights, but we would prefer to tailor the trip to your liking. It could be that you want to see more of the main sites, or it could be that you wish to stroll amongst the small local boutiques of Palermo or the Parisienne buildings of Recoleta.Duration: 5 hrs.

DAY 4: 04 Sep 2018 (Tuesday) - Estancia day at la Bamba - PVT

Few are the places that are so close to the City yet so secluded and tranquil. At only 123 kilometers from Buenos Aires, La Bamba de Areco, offers precisely what the Celtic origin of its name translates to; a place to rest. La Bamba de Areco’s staff is proud to present the heritage of its region through a number of equine and folkloric demonstrations. As one of the first estancias to open to the public and one of Argentina’s oldest properties, La Bamba de Areco is heavily anchored in its local surroundings. As such, it would be unimaginable to suggest an excursion to our Estancia without taking the time to discover the town San Antonio de Areco, birthplace of the gaucho tradition and home to some of the country’s most skilled leather and silver craftsmen.
