Tango – Mendoza Wine Tasting

Hiking in the Andes…and more

Day 1, Tuesday November 5 – Buenos Aires

The majority of us will arrive in Buenos Aires late morning. There will be transportation from the hotel waiting for you at the airport. By this time, you will be begging for a nap, and we don’t want crabby travelers, so we will oblige you! However, only long enough for you to gather the energy needed for our first night out on the town. We will provide you a map of the neighborhood and wonderful places to explore, should you awake from your siesta with time and energy on your hands.

Meals included: None today

Day 2 – Wednesday, November 6  – Buenos Aires

Today is all about exploration! We will provide you with a list of shops, restaurants and activities around Buenos Aires so you can explore the areas of the city that interest you the most. Don’t be gone too long though! We’ve got a class lined up for you at La Confitería Ideal, a bar in the “microcentro” of Buenos Aires known for its elaborate décor dating back to 1910. Refreshments and appetizers will be provided.

Meals included: Evening refreshments and appetizers

Day 3 – Thursday, November 7 – Buenos Aires

After breakfast, we will take a tour of the great city of Buenos Aires. The tour will allow us to really see all this fascinating city has to offer. Additionally, it will inspire ideas for what you would like to do and where you would like to visit. Day three will offer more free time for you to explore the city, visit museums, go shopping – whatever your heart desires! We schedule a lot of activities but also want you to have time to go out on you own, or with some of your fellow travelers.

Meals included: Breakfast

Day 4 – Friday, November 8 – Buenos Aires

Following breakfast – We begin the day at a local cemetery, Cementerio Recoleta – which sounds rather gloomy – but it’s a cemetery like you’ve never seen before! Afterwards, we will visit the lovely district of Recoleta and everyone will have time to get some lunch. There are so many amazing places to choose from here! If you’d like to do a little upscale shopping – this is where you will make that happen. After lunch, we will head back to the Hotel for some rest. Than – about the time you’d be going to bed at home – we’re off to La Peña del Colorado! Here we will hear the Folkloric music of Argentina. And, if we stay late enough, you’ll be singing too.

Meals included: Breakfast

Day 5 – Saturday, November 9 – Buenos Aires 

Yes, Argentina is Buenos Aires. But Argentina is so much more. Haven’t you wondered – where does all that great beef come from? We will take a drive outside of Buenos Aires and visit an Estancia to get familiar with a working ranch. We’ll learn about the life of a rancher, a hard life, but good life. The ranchers will be treating us to demonstrations of corralling and their roping abilities. Naturally, we will eat like a cowboy and enjoy some of the local entertainment. This is a long day outside the city, but Buenos Aires, being who she is… well, she will just be waking up when we return……so once again… your call; to the hotel or to “la vida nocturna”.

Meals included: Breakfast – Followed by, food, food and more food

Enjoy the friendship of the Hispanic culture like a local around the table with great food, wine and music.

Day 6 – Sunday, November 10 – Mendoza 

We have a plane to catch! Once we arrive in Mendoza the rest of the day is yours to explore on your own. We will again be providing you with a list of local shops, restaurants and activities to provide some direction.

Meals included: None today


Day 7 – Monday, November 11 – Mendoza

There is so much to see! Which is why, we will be taking a guided tour of Mendoza in the morning. This will allow you to really see what the city has to offer and where you might want to spend more time. For this reason, once the tour has ended – the day is your oyster. Get out there and explore!

Meals included: None today

Day 8 – Tuesday, November 12 – Mendoza

Are you ready? This day is going to be something special. La Familia Zuccardi Vineyard will pick us up and treat us to a spectacular day. We begin with breakfast at the vineyard followed by a private cooking class with the head chef of the vineyard! Then, we move to the tasting room where we will have our own “degustation” with six premium Zuccardi offerings and a class on how the experts taste and evaluate wine. To spit or not to spit? That will be the question!

By this time, we are hungry again. We will now enjoy an extraordinary lunch and each course is paired with… can you guess? Yes, more wine! We know you want a nap now, but wine is serious business and it is our responsibility to learn how all that goodness got into those bottles. Which is why, we will be taking a private tour of the vineyard followed by bodega time! Finally, coffee, while enjoying a private performance by live musicians and folkloric dancers. With smiles on our satisfied and newly educated faces, we head back to our hotel and chill. We don’t need to talk about the evening, do we?

Meals included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day 9 – Wednesday, November 13 – Mendoza

It was a very busy day yesterday, so we have several things for you to choose. Would you like to take a bus tour to the top of the Andes where Argentina meets Chile? It´s gorgeous, and frankly terrifying, as you are talking climbing to 23,000 feet! But the vistas can´t be beat, the history is absolutely fascinating and this tour includes a lunch of indigenous fare that you´ll not likely find anywhere else. So. DELICIOUS.

Not interested? Well, how about a day on foothill trails; you and Trigger (Trigger is a horse, of course). You´ll surly work up an appetite which will satisfied with this horseback ride and Carne Asado.

Maybe you’re more interested in the food? Almacén de Sur is what you will want. Tour the gardens where the food comes from and enjoy a gourmet lunch. You will also get familiar with all the wonderful delicatessen products they sell. You may even be asked to taste some things which haven’t hit the market yet! If you’re a foodie…well, this might be the one for you.

Meals included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day 10 – Thursday, November 14 – Buenos Aires

The morning in Mendoza is yours. In the afternoon, we will head to the airport and fly back to Buenos Aires. Once we get back, you will need to ask yourself – is there anything you wanted to see or do and haven’t yet had the opportunity? Well, today is the day to make all your dreams come true. Get out there and explore those corners of the city we have not yet seen. When you get back, it will be time for the big finale! Did you know, Argentine tango music and dance originated in in the 19th century in the suburbs of Buenos Aires? We can’t have you visiting Buenos Aires and not experiencing such a crucial part of the culture. Get ready, we’re ending the night with a live Tango show unlike any you have seen before.

Meals included: Breakfast and Lunch


Day 11 – Friday, November 15 – Buenos Aires

Our unforgettable trip is drawing to a close. Savor these last hours however you wish. Typically, flights leave Argentina headed to the states at around 11 p.m. Which means we will be transported to the airport between 7 and 8 p.m. Take the day at your leisure.

Meals included: None today
