This trip includes, in Buenos Aires, two different tours: one to the north and another one to the south of the city. In both of them you will not just learn about the history of the city, but also you will go over the different neighbourhoods like a local. Also, instead of going to a traditional tango show, you will go to an authentic milonga (where locals and visitors gather to dance tango).In Calafate, you will have 2 nontraditional tours, so that you can see much more than the glacier: a 4×4 excursion to the Fosiles Canyon, an archeological site where the natives lived hundreds of years ago and a patagonic dinner in a cave that you won’t forget.
