Gullies Tours - Puerto Madero
Departing from Jorge Newbery Domestic Airport, on the shores of the Río de la Plata, the overflights by helicopter offer different tours to see the city and its surroundings from the air. Overflying by helicopter is an unforgettable experience. The different tours fly over the city from the river to the historical downtown area and the most known neighbourhoods, such as Puerto Madero, La Recoleta and La Boca. The overflights along the shores of the river to the north allow to observe the channels of the Tigre Delta, the hills of San Isidro, Olivos' port, Martínez, Vicente López, Pilar and Escobar.
Visit the historical complex of Plaza de Mayo, surrounded by the Government House, the Cathedral and the historical Cabildo, a beautiful 18th century building. Walk through one of the first avenues the city ever had, the Avenida de Mayo, seeing plenty of architectural samples of the end of the 19th century.
The tour continues south, to the oldest quarters of the city. Arrival to the traditional neighbourhood of San Telmo, with its cobblestone streets and its renowned antique fair, and to the picturesque area of La Boca, a colourful world where local artists show their paintings along the historical Caminito Street.
To the north, the tour visits the lakes in Palermo and its residential area. Finally, in the sophisticated La Recoleta quarter, one of the most exclusive ones, with elegant cafés and restaurants, we visit Our Lady of Pilar Church, said to be the oldest in the city, and the unique Northern Cemetery, to see the grave with Eva Perón's mortal remains.
Bathed by the waters of the Golfo Nuevo and located only 100 km away from Puerto Pirámides, the city of Puerto Madryn is the entrance gate to Peninsula Valdés, which has been declared a World Natural Heritage site by UNESCO in 1999. Its roads conveniently communicate it with the main tourist attractions in the region, such as the Nature Reserve Peninsula Valdés, the Penguin Reserve in Punta Tombo, the Welsh colonies of Dolavon and Gaiman, and the wide coastal line of the Atlantic Ocean. Observing the huge whales from its shores at sunset is a truly unforgettable experience!
