Why take this tour?

On this 6-hour customizable exploration, you will discover Palermo Viejo’s culinary secrets while enjoying its food, history, and vibrant art. We start with what used to be the doorway to Buenos Aires, after a short typical Porteño breakfast. The city’s parks and tree-lined boulevards were first inspired and planned from this area, and that curiously enough is home to one of the continent’s oldest monuments. You will sample Argentina’s famous steak in a non-touristy location, as well as relish the emblematic Argentine sandwich along with a variety of local favorite appetizers and snacks. One of our food stops has a craft beer option, and we can also add a wine tasting, if you like, in the middle of all of that food. While walking from one place to the next we will have some time to admire local street art. This is a tour that you experience with all of your senses and you will enjoy plenty of picture-taking opportunities.

About operator:

Participate in creating a typical weekend family asado (local bbq) that Argentina is famous for. Your guide wil take your small semi-private group to the butcher shop, the bakery, and the wine store, all the while walking the cobblestone streets of either Palermo Viejo or San Telmo, just like a local family would do. You then go back to a large private home (not a restaurant) and help prepare the asado. It is a first-hand experience of learning how to prep the meat, create the salad, build the fire with charcoal and wood, and all the while learn about the neighborhood (guests might want to jot down the different shops visited for some shopping later). The tour is an experience where you can learn about asado customs, and learn more information about the city in a very relaxed atmosphere. And you would be eating a fantastic asado guided by the very capable hands of a master parrillero (local grill master).
