Cultural Sensitivity 

On our tours we frequently interact with local people, each with their own distinct customs and traditions. We therefore ask you to be considerate and to treat them with respect. Your guides will be able to advise you accordingly.  

Although South Americans are very relaxed in comparison to people in other parts of the world, some places are very traditional and conservative, and your dress/behaviour should respect this. Public displays of affection are considered inappropriate. We also recommend taking the time to learn a little Spanish – manners are held in high regard and a few pleasantries in the local language are always appreciated.  You will find that the more effort you make to talk to people in their own language, the more rewarding your holiday experience will be.  

Language & Religion 

Spanish is the official language of Argentina. English is widely spoken with some French and German. Taking a phrasebook with you on your travels is advisable. More than 90% are Roman Catholic and 2% are Protestant with small Muslim and Jewish communities.  

Time 

Argentina is 3 hours behind GMT.

Food and drink 

Argentina offers an exceptional standard of food, although choices can often be restricted to meat, pasta and pizza. Buenos Aires, however, offers a wide choice of culinary options, with Japanese, Thai and Asian-fusion food becoming increasingly popular.Argentines dine late – 9pm is considered early.  Famed for the quality of its steaks, Argentina is also a meat eater's dream, and a visit to a parrilla (grill restaurant) should be on every visitor's must-do list.
