Day 1   Mendoza

Arrival in Mendoza, reception at the airport and transfer to the hotel.

Mendoza has excellent wineries, but also an important olive oil industry, so this tour is the perfect combination of both. We start by Don Manuel Villafañe Winery, focused on the production of grapes, harvested in small and exclusive vineyards.

We continue to an olive grove where we make a tasting of oils and delicatessen products (olive paste, dehydrated tomatoes accompanied by homemade bread).

Our next stop is the Luigi Bosca Winery, which has remained in the hands of the founding family. Finally, we visit Altavista Winery, considered a historical heritage of Mendoza, since it has not stopped functioning in a century and where we appreciate the coexistence of the old and the modern. We enjoy our lunch in the garden of the winery. At the end, return to the city. Meals: lunch

Day 2   Mendoza

This exclusive tour was designed to allow for enjoying and sharing an excellent wine day. Today we visit the Uco Valley, with its wineries located up to 1500 MASL (4920 ft.), high that provides the wine unique attributes.

During the tour we visit Salentein, Domaine Busquet and Andeluna wineries. Salentein is a winery focused on quality, classic varietal plantations, preservation of old vines, reimplementation of

European artisan techniques and the use of advanced technology which results in wines of international level. In this winery, we also visit the Killka Space, a unique art space in Mendoza. Domaine Bousquet is a family tradition winery, alongside four generations. Andeluna is the ideal place to learn about this region. Framed in an imposing landscape at the base of the Tupungato Volcano, we enjoy these prestigious wines. We taste wines of each visited winery, and we have lunch at one of them, paired with wines produced in that winery. Meals: breakfast and lunch

Day 3   Mendoza / Buenos Aires

In the morning, transfer to the airport to board your flight to Buenos Aires. Upon arrival, assistance and transfer to the hotel.

At due time, we go on a panoramic tour around the city. We start in Plaza de Mayo (historic square), scene of the most important events of the country since 1810. From there, we are able to learn some aspects of the current situation of the country, while we appreciate the surrounding buildings, such as the Casa Rosada (Pink House), the cathedral and the Cabildo (Town Hall).

Our second stop is La Boca, but on the way we pass through icons of the city such as the Obelisk and the Colon Theatre, one of the five best opera theaters in the world. Upon arriving at La Boca, we visit its colorful streets, we pass by the conventillos and its well-known Caminito Street, where we walk to

handicraft produced by local artists. We leave the southern part of the city to reach the northern area, integrated by the neighborhoods of Palermo and Recoleta, where we make a final stop to enjoy the aristocratic part, famous for containing the Recoleta Cemetery. Return to the hotel.

This evening we attend a dinner show, where we will enjoy the magnetism of tango. Meals: breakfast and dinner

Day 4   Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers a wide range of activities. During this day, we suggest you experience the city through its history, art, gastronomy and passions. Ask us about or numerous optional tours in Buenos Aires, i.e.: Fiesta Gaucho Estancia tour, Colon Theatre, or Tigre & River Delta boat tour, to name a few!  Meals: breakfast

Day 5   Buenos Aires / Puerto Iguazu

Arrival and reception at the airport. Transfer to the hotel and overnight. Meals: breakfast

Day 6   Puerto Iguazú

In the morning, we head for Iguazu National Park to visit the Iguazu Falls, declared a Natural Heritage Site by UNESCO and one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. The falls consist of 275 waterfalls, of 70 meters high (230 ft.). During the tour we visit the three circuits of the park: Garganta del Diablo (Devil’s Throat) to reach the balcony and viewpoint of the park's most impressive waterfall, the Upper Trail, that allows for admiring a vertical view of the falls, and the Lower Trail, that provides a closer contact with the vegetation and falls.

During the tour, we have free time to have lunch and to optionally take The Great Adventure (fees apply), an excursion that allows for experiencing a boat trip almost under the falls, and a walk through the jungle (please, consult us the restrictions). In the afternoon, return to the hotel. Meals: breakfast

Day 7   Puerto Iguazú

In the morning, we reach Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil (US Citizens need a travel visa!) and visit the falls on the Brazilian side. We enter the national park and go all over the only path that leads to the viewpoint of Garganta del Diablo. As we walk, we appreciate a view of almost all of the falls.

At the appropriate time, transfer to the airport. Meals: breakfast
