Please note: this private tour to Argentina & Uruguay is an example, as all of our luxury journeys are custom-made.
Upon arrival in the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, your personal host will take you by private transfer to your 5-star hotel of choice. On the first day of your luxury Argentina tour, with your expert guide, you will discover the chic neighborhood of Recoleta home to the world-renowned Recoleta cemetery. In the evening, dine at an authentic “parilla” to savor some of the world’s best steak and malbec wine.
Begin the following day with a private tour of the magnificent Teatro Colón (with exclusive access to the theater’s backstage studios and dressing rooms). Visit the Plaza de Mayo with your private guide before continuing to the cobblestone streets of San Telmo with its artisans and antique shops. Alternatively, we can also organize a private biking tour through the gorgeous parks of the Palermo neighborhood, a personal shopper for insider access to the high-end Argentine shopping scene, or even a private tango lesson with a professional dancer. Following dinner, we will take you to the best tango show in town to watch this iconic dance firsthand.
After a 50-minute flight to Punta del Este, Uruguay, you will be greeted by your host and taken by private transfer to your accommodation near José Ignacio. This small village is a sophisticated retreat for families seeking a tranquil escape. You will stay at one of three luxury properties, all part of the celebrated Vik collection: Bahía Vik, Playa Vik, or Estancia Vik. On your first evening, enjoy a horseback riding excursion across lagoons, over the sandy dunes of the coast, passing a fisherman’s village, and finally through a secluded forest to arrive at a private BBQ for you and your party to enjoy under the stars.
The following day, you will be taken to a special bodega for a tasting of some of Uruguay’s best wines and olive oils. From there, hike through the region’s rolling green hills and expansive ranchlands before arriving at the sleepy village of Garzón, a picturesque settlement with a tiny population. The acclaimed chef Francis Mallmann chose to establish his small yet elegant restaurant in Garzón and here you can savor a taste of Uruguay’s traditional roots.
To begin the next day, enjoy a biking excursion through the beautiful Uruguayan countryside before arriving at a lagoon by a large private estate. Savor a delicious private BBQ lunch, featuring the local catch on the grill, prepared especially for you by a personal chef and assistant. Following lunch, enjoy the option to go canoeing on the lagoon and enjoy the grasslands around the property.
The following morning, visit the long white sand beaches at La Brava beach with a private beach set up. In the afternoon, enjoy shopping in the surrounding villages, such as La Barra and Manantiales, to browse the boutiques and galleries of local designers according to your interests. From there, stop to enjoy the notable artwork of the Fundacion Pablo Atchugarry before continuing to a private estate for a special wine and cheese tasting session in the kitchen with the chef and sommelier.
