We offer both a 4-hout Tour and an Extended 6-hour Tour of Jewish Buenos Aires!
The following is the Itinerary that includes the sites visited and the topics covered in both tours:
On Sundays and Holidays, the Libertad Street Synagogue and the Jewish Museum are closed. We still visit the site to see them from outside and learn there about Jewish immigrations and the Jewish Gauchos.
On Sundays, the Holocaust Museum opens at 2 PM.
On Fridays and Holidays, the Holocaust Museum is closed. Instead, we then visit the site where Peron and Evita lived and learn there about the Nazis coming to Argentina and the capture of Eichmann in Buenos Aires

TOUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The Jewish Tour is a shared tour. There is a minimum of two registered people for the Tour to the opened. And we set a maximum of 12 participants. The average number of participants in the tours is between 4 and 8 people. Sometimes the tours have only 2 people and become private tours. In extremely high season (the last week of December and the first week of January) we may accept an extra couple if they cannot take the tour on any other day.
If your party is a large party, and you request the tour with enough anticipation, you may be able to secure a Private Tour for your group.
The Tour is generally offered Sundays thru Fridays, from 9 AM to 3 PM. It is not offered on Shabbat.
You can participate in the 4-hour Tour, from 9 AM to 1 PM, or in the Extended Tour, from 9 AM to 3 PM.
But we always ask people to please allow for an extra-hour, just in case we need it!
Yes, pick up time from your place (hotel, apartment or cruise-ship terminal at the port) will be some time between 8:30 AM and 9:00 AM, depending on the location of your place. The 4-hour Tour ends in Once. The Extended 6-hour Tour brings you back to your place at the end of the tour. If location and time allow, at the end of the Tour we can drop you off at the place of your next activity.
