Buenos Aires in one day will be challenge, but I am sure you will love it, I just need your adventure spirit, your accurate curiosity and your open mind for a lot of surprises and improvisation. In South America, we will have to go with the flow and follow the rhythm of the city. We will also visit unique places difficult to reach, spots that no tourist can ever dream about visiting!!!
Boooo!!! This is not Mexico but normally we will start visiting THE DEAD, hahahahahaha :) I would love to reproduce the maniacal laugh in Michael Jackson's song THRILLER...but lets at least remember the lyrics:
Darkness falls across the land
The midnite hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'awl's neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thrillerCan you dig it?!
But we are not going to see spirits or ghosts, we will visit a very traditional and important cemetery in town that holds the history of many remarkable characters of Argentina's Democratic Saga, from the famous Evita Peron's Tomb to the great popular President Belgrano, one of the people responsable to guarantee the argentinean borders, and also masterpieces of many world famous sculptors like Rodin.
From Death to Life we will cross in few minutes...A quick visit to the Rose Gardens in the Palermo Park is a must stop place, an incredible collections of Roses coming from every part of Argentina, the open space will give you food for thoughts for amazing photos and you will visit the main green lung of Buenos Aires, the neighborhood of Palermo is one of the most desireble places to live in town.
Now it is time to feel the soul of the argentinean person...we will explore places where Tango is lived with passion, we will visit squares where people come just to dance Tango, a charming dance which is a real religion as well as football which is also a huge passion. We will be visiting SanTelmo to see a charming flea market and we will also have fun, dance and have the best argentinean beer or wine in the colorful district of Caminito. A real journey to the past with a great experience in present all at once.
Okay, now you should know that Argentina has a fine and absolutely wonderful gastronomy (and hopefully you are not vegetarian), and steak they make it with "art", best barbecue with amazing spices like the famous ChimiChurri and it is an opportunity to taste what locals love to do and we will have several options...Lunch at the super traditional CaféTortoni, a real "worker" lunch at Obrero or a simple great barbecue in the canals of Tigre by the river. I will always have those 3 options for you to choose
After lunch we will have an important decision to take...so much to see in Buenos Aires that we cannot do all in just one day...so I give to our group 3 options, and I cannot vote because I love all the options:
OPTION ONE - WALKING TOUR USING THE METRO AND SEE THE CLASSICS OF BUENOS AIRES
We are visiting the head of the Power were President Macri is cleaning the house, we will see the Casa Rosada on Mayo Square, visit the majestic Cathedral where Pope Francis spent a long time as a Bishop, we will walk through boulevard and more squares like the wide avenue of 9 de Julio, the corner of Corrientes Avenue which is always compared with Times Squere in London, we will pass in front of Colon Theatre and visit the beautiful San Martin square where we can have a good view to the port and the British Clock
OPTION TWO - THE WATER WAY OF TIGRE - A DIFFERENT BUENOS AIRES
OPTION THREE - WE WILL GO TO SOUTH AFRICA AND INDIA
Sure...you will feel like in Africa and in India in the same day!!! Plus a wonderful contact with the most gracious creatures on Earth, it is a animal center where they take good care of animals caught in circus and owners who did not took care of those animals, and also a big variety of animals who are born and raised in this blessed corner of Lujan. If we choose to have the best photos of our lives in South America, we will go there first because the zoo closes early
Well, this is how I deal with Buenos Aires and will love to share with you...lots of groups can be organized, we have enougb guides for this unique adventure in the capital of Argentina. I am sure you will have a great time!
LOTS OF LOVE,

ohhhhh I just for got to mention, some people spend more than one day in the city, and I have cool suggestions about what to do after a complete day in Buenos Aires, like the whole day following the course of Plata River visiting many gaucho farms, or a quick visit to Uruguay in Colonia del Sacramento or the unknown cute village of Carmelo.
