Recoleta Food Walking Tour
The most palatable Argentinean cuisine within reach! Although pretty informal, this food walking tour will take you through one of the most elegant and expensive residential areas of Buenos Aires. Here, you will visit significant attractions, taste typical local appetizers and one of the top five cuts of beef, along with a glass of Malbec wine. A fast course in Spanish to deal with daily situations is also included (upon request).
The starting point of the tour begins at the entrance of the Recoleta cemetery, either at 11am or at 7pm. You will be strolling along the streets of this neighborhood with large green spaces and exclusive avenues; visiting the most famous and luxury hotel of the city (Alvear Hotel), and some bars and restaurants that were a rendezvous for politicians, artists and writers.
The first stop will be at a place that perfectly represent the Argentinean culture, where you will taste the authentic ‘empanadas’. During the tour, you may ask for the intensive Spanish course that may come in handy in daily social situations, and that is included in the tour (the tourist guide will help you bring the language into practice immediately. This course is available only upon request).
The second stop will take place at a great restaurant, in which you will be able to taste the Argentinean meat and wine.
Finally, the third stop: the most well-known chain of ice-cream parlors (as long as you leave enough room for dessert).
The tour will also end at the entrance of the Recoleta cemetery. There is a cabstand only 2 blocks away from the cemetery.
There is a surprise for each one that is quite connected with our culture.
