    After you book the tour we’ll ask you to fill out a questionnaire. With your response we’ll create a personalized itinerary.


    Here are just some of the shopping gems that Buenos Aires is famous for:

    • Leather jackets, bags, shoes, and accessories (including custom made items)
    • Argentine fashion designers and independent boutiques
    • Local jewelry designers – traditional silversmiths, costume and fine jewelry
    • Antiques and vintage clothing and accessories
    • Markets for arts and crafts, fashion and artisan food
    • Handmade rugs and blankets
    • Tango shoes
    • Polo boots and accessories

    Shopping aside, we’ll show you some of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods and open your eyes to the local way of life making sure you have a great day out.

    We recommend the half day tour of 4 hours, starting at 10.30am or 2.30pm. This option costs USD 150 for one person plus US$ 45 for each additional person and includes a glass of wine or tea/coffee break. There’s no obligation to purchase anything in the stores — though people almost always end up doing so. We pick the stops objectively, and we do NOT receive any commission from the designers or stores.

    NB: Most of the tour is on foot but transportation may be required between neighborhoods and will be added as an extra charge. There is the option of taking taxis or a private car.

    We also offer full day shopping tours (including lunch and transportation) and shopping services by the hour. Contact us for more information.

  • Because this is a flexible shopping tour, after we get your survey response, we’ll designate a meeting point.
