Recoleta Walking Tour

After I arrived, one of the first things we did was take a walking tour of the neighborhood surrounding our new apartment. I recommend the company we used, BA Walking-Tours. Don't be fooled by their chaotic website, they offer a really great tour for relatively little cost. The tour we took was US$25 per person and for a 2.5 - 3 hour tour. They offer a number of destinations, including Wild or Mild Tango tours. We chose the Recoleta-Palermo afternoon walk. This covers Recoleta cemetery, the surrounding restaurants and shops, Embassy row in Palermo and a stop for coffee and a snack. Our guide, Carlos, was knowledgeable, funny and gave us great insight about Argentine history and culture in addition to the tour stopping points. Another plus - he spoke flawless English - a HUGE bonus for our first couple of days here.
