Buenos Aires is a complex city of distinct neighborhoods, each with its own texture and personality. Pedestrian zones crisscross the capital, filled with smartly-dressed couples, and street performers. Parks and plazas serve as community gathering places—venues for picnickers, political activists, and amateur futbolistas.

Most of our clients stay three or four nights and often return for longer stays on their next trip to Argentina. Over the years, we’ve assembled a collection of trusted friends—ambassadors, really—who open the city to our clients, helping them access the city’s leading galleries, studios, workshops, and kitchens.

Since 2006, LANDED has arranged privately-guide touring and experiences within Buenos Aires. Whatever your interests, we’ll make the introductions. Speak with one of our expert travel designers today.
