We actually had three tours since we were in Buenos Aires for three days thanks to Holland America's generous two extra days for veranda suite passengers. The first excursion was on the first day while we were in port and it was a full day excursion to a Gaucho Ranch. That was the best tour of the trip. Demonstrations of horseback riding, carriage rides and horseback rides for all the people that wanted to go around the ranch, about a 25-minute ride that was really nice. We got to explore the beautiful grounds and home. Other people took carriage rides. Then we had a wonderful lunch of steak, ribs, chicken, and more beef. The beef was excellent, some of the best I have ever had. Following that we had a wonderful tango show, the best of the trip and they did not mind you filming the entire show. It was about an hour outside of Buenos Aires. The next day we got off the ship and checked into the nice hotel, the only problem was we got off at 9:00 and could not check in until 3:00. We had a wonderful evening tour that went on a river cruise that showed what locals did on long summer evenings at their riverside cabins. So many boats and water skiing. We then ended up at an art museum where we had a tour of the museum and then on the outdoor second floor patio area, we had dinner and numerous tango dancers taking turns in different areas of the seated guests. It was a wonderful evening. The weather was perfect. The next day we took a city tour that took us to all of the famous areas of Buenos Aires. We got to see all of the local sights including the Recoleta Cemetery where Eva Peron is buried. That and the colorful Boca area were two of the highlights. We got to see the cathedral where the Pope use to preach, the governmental palace and monuments including the Obelisk that looks so much like the Washington monument. After the tour I walked down to the "Floralis Generica" mechanical flower that opens and closes mechanically each morning and night. I ended the day by going through the impressive art museum near there. In all it was a really good day. The next day we had to check out at noon for a 5PM pick up and tour back through the city to the airport and the long flight back to the states.

Beuatiful city, tour hit a lot of the high points. I did NOT sing "don't cry for me Argentina" at Eva Peron's tomb, but I did hum it very softly. The Tigre delta cruise a lunch were fantastic.

The ship is a bit far from the terminal, you have to use the shuttle bus . Very chaotic when disembarking the ship to go home in the terminal. We went to the tango show and went to see a gouchio demonstration. Buenos Aires itself is quite run down in parts.

So much to see and do! If you love bookstores, go to the historic bookshop Ateneo Grand Splendid tucked away in the Recoleta neighborhood. It is a converted theater and is said to be on the the world's most beautiful. There is a good cafe up on the stage.
