Argentina Experience

Suitable for Family, Group, Senior


Explore the country of Gauchos, wine tastings, and tango on a 6 day Jewish tour in Argentina. Visit this cultural capital of the world, birthplace of the tango and the world’s fifth-largest wine producer, known for its incredible art, theater, music, and dance, on a Jewish tour to Argentina.

Home to approximately 250,000 Jews, Argentina is the sixth largest Jewish community in the world. Many came over en masse at the end of the 1880s from Eastern Europe. As the center of Argentinian Jewish life, Buenos Aires is one of the best places for a Jewish tour. But once you leave the city for Pampa you enter the romantic world of the Jewish gaucho: cowboys who earned their living as farmers.

Visit the Shoah Museum and make empanadas and alfajores with an Argentinian chef. Go for a wine tasting in the vineyards of the Buenos Aires Province and sail along the La Plata River and explore the riverside market in Tigre. This country full of passion is waiting for you to explore.


  • Witness the country’s political history at the Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada where Evita made her famous balcony speech and toward San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods of this European-like city.
  • Dance at a Milonga tango show–an authentic club where a live band plays and locals gather to dance tango in its purest form.
  • Pay your respect at the Embassy of Israel Square, built on the spot once occupied by the Israeli embassy until 1992, when a brutal terrorist attack destroyed it.
  • Sail along the La Plata River and discover the historical town of San Isidro and feel the vibe at the colorful riverside market in Tigre.
  • Get the real benefit of working with a Jewish travel agency when you visit AMIA, the Argentina-Israel Benefit Society. Its original building was destroyed by a new terrorist assault in 1994 that killed 85 people.
  • Stop at the Shoah Museum, built to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive.
  • Continue your journey to the neighborhoods associated with the Jewish community: Abasto, Villa Crespo, and Once.
