This accessible driving tour of Buenos Aires begins with your friendly guide picking you up at your wheelchair-friendly, centrally located hotel. You’ll then head out on a relaxing drive through the city en-route to your first stop of the day — the 66-foot-high structure of steel giant flower known as Floralis Generica, an iconic space-age symbol of the city. Right after that, you move into the realm of roses in Paseo El Rosedal (Rose garden walk) — the city’s tranquil rose paradise bursting with a myriad of these charming flowers inside the lavishly sprawling green space. This is only the start of the impressive list of wonders and entirely worth-while moments to seek out in Argentina’s capital city to cover in a day.
Next, you will head out to find out another amazing story treasured by this unique metropolis — the final resting place of the nation’s iconic figures – Recoleta Cemetery, well-constructed in homage to a wide array of architectural styles and many prominent names of the nation. Then your guide will take you to explore a breathtakingly beautiful water pumping station Palacio de Aguas Corrientes (Palace of the Running Waters) to discover what prompted the city to introduce a modern running water system. Next, you will immerse yourself into the intriguing reminders of the historic past right in the heart of the Plaza de Mayo, home to the Presidential Pink Palace, Casa Rosada, where Eva and Juan Peron gave their historic speeches from the balcony back in the 1940s and ‘50s and you will never overlook the impressive Cabildo, the site of Spain’s colonial administration in the city. Your convenient accessible van will then take you to stroll through the bustling streets of Calle Defensa to admire the old churches and countless antique markets scattered all around and you will have plenty of spots for lunch (price not included) in this truly unique location.
