Antarctica Marathon 2014: EZE City Tour With Marathon Tours

This is a review of the city tour provided by Marathon Tours. They hired a local tour operator to take us around the city.

In the morning it was raining. Luckily, when we got to the first stop, it had stopped and was only a drizzle. It got clearer as the day went on and the sun came out during our last stop.

The first stop was the La Chacarita Cemetery with a lot of famous people in it. It was filled with tombs and many of them went a few levels underground. There were also a lot of cats here.

The second stop was the San Telmo that have a lot of Tango demonstrations and shows, which I already went to the day before. It was not an organized tour of the area so we roamed around on our own. See the previous post on the bicycle tour for more pictures of this area.

The third and final stop was the Casa Rosada and the Metropolitan Cathederal. We went inside the cathedral, which I didn’t get to do during the bicycle tour.

There are some statues on the far right side of the cathedral.

We drove by the Puerto Madero area on the way back. A few of the people got off there to have lunch.

The tour got back about 12:30 so it was just in time for lunch.

I was on the tour for the second ship. The tour for the first ship was the day before and I heard they didn’t stop in the pink plaza and go into the cathedral. They stopped at the first two stops and then drove around the city so they didn’t get a chance to get out and see the attractions at the last stop.
