Evita Perón Private Tour: the woman behind "Don´t cry for me Argentina" and more

Evita Perón is Argentina’s most beloved and controversial First Lady.

As a skilled speaker, she was adored by the poor citizens she worked hard to help, but she was not without critics and detractors.

In this 3-hour private tour you will get the chance to deeply understand why she was loved and hated in equal proportions, and why she became even more powerful since she passed away.

We will visit the most iconic locations related to her life while we discover the hidden secrets the city, those that you cannot get just by walking around.

The story of a poor girl who became a prominent political power has been the subject of countless books, films and plays. Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote the hit musical Evita (1979), which was based on Perón's life. Madonna later played Perón in the 1996 film version, with Antonio Banderas portraying Che Guevara.

Are you ready to discover Buenos Aires though the life of Argentina´s most controversial person?
