Palermo Viejo is yours to explore!
On this 6-hour + (7 hours for added beer or wine tasting options) customizable food tour, you will discover Palermo Viejo’s culinary secrets while walking its cobblestoned, tree-lined streets and enjoying its food, history, and vibrant art.
It’s usually best to start a story from the beginning, and that’s what we do on this food tour, starting with what used to be the doorway to Buenos Aires, after a short typical Porteño breakfast.
We will learn how the city’s parks and tree-lined boulevards were first inspired and planned from this area and that, curiously enough, is home to one of the continent’s oldest monuments.
You will sample Argentina’s famous steak in a non-touristy location, as well as relish the emblematic Argentine sandwich (choripan). You will also get to sample some of the local favorite appetizers and snacks.
One of our food stops has a craft beer option, but there are also various additional craft beer quaffing opportunities. Each place is different, so depending on what you like, we can pick and choose. We can also add a wine tasting, if you like, in the middle of all of that food.
While walking from one place to the next, we will have some time to admire local street art. This is a tour that you experience with all of your senses, and you will enjoy plenty of picture-taking opportunities.
