Exploring the Aristocratic Northern Suburbs of Buenos Aires & the Gateway to the Third-largest River Delta in the World: San Isidro and Tigre (private tour)

  • Visit one of the most aristocratic and oldest suburbs of Buenos Aires

Get ready to embark on a journey to one of the most aristocratic and oldest suburbs of Buenos Aires, as we stroll along cobblestone streets, admiring colonial architecture and urbanism among the prominent mansions of San Isidro.

Located in the northern suburbs of Buenos Aires, the San Isidro neighborhood is home to some of the wealthiest families of Buenos Aires. We'll visit its historical neighborhood, where we'll admire the sheer beauty and magnificent structure of the neo-Gothic style San Isidro cathedral. Located in front of the main square, the cathedral was designed by French architects and inaugurated on 1898. It was built on the site of a 1706 chapel opened by Captain Domingo de Acassuso. We'll also visit other main highlights like the Quinta Pueyrredon or Quinta Beccar Varela (we'll stop at one of both), before heading further north to Tigre: the gateway to the third-largest river delta in the worldand the only one that flows into fresh water rather than into the sea. We'll navigate the Parana delta, admiring it's scattered islands, dense vegetation and houses on pilots that can be appreciated on our hour long private motor boat ride along some of its rivers. The journey ends with a stop at the "Mercado de Frutos" (Fruit Supply Market). With a name that harks back to its time as a port where fruit was unloaded, today the Puerto de Frutos is an open-air market where you can find furniture, decorations, cane and wicker accessories, homemade jam, honey, local handcrafts and, still, a wide range of local fruit.
