Amazing Argentina: Buenos Aires & Beyond
and Optional Extension: Exciting Iguazú

October 27-(November 5), 2024
OR November 10-(19), 2024

The dynamic, interesting and colorful city of Buenos Aires is often called “The Paris of the South” due to its architectural resemblance in certain districts and because it has been a popular destination among the sophisticated, the glamorous, and the daring. However, it’s a disservice to both cities. There is only one Paris; there is only one Buenos Aires. Both are fabulous, each in its own unique way.

Join trip leader James Sokol on a multi-faceted, fascinating & delicious cultural journey to this bustling, unique South American capital city and beyond.

Take a deep dive into several facets of Argentinian culture. Stroll through divers Neighborhoods, each with its own singular ambiance. Visit important Museums & Sites to learn about the history, culture and art of the capital and the country. Be welcomed into a Private Home with a special Empanada Cooking Class. Tastes a variety of Argentinian flavors from their renowned Grilled Specialties to their Italian-influenced Ice Cream and much more! Meet local Artists in their Private Studios to see their works and learn about their inspirations. Embark on Daytrips outside the city to enjoy time in the lush Tigre Delta as well as a day in the Countryside.
