    It has long been a dream of mine to dance tango in Buenos Aires and I achieved it if only briefly on this trip. We had an hour’s lesson in a dance studio and then on to a milonga. This really was a tango night with the locals - the only tourists were those in our group - and we loved it. Our guide was excellent - as well as dancing we chatted all evening about Argentina and as well as being a great dance teacher she was informative and fun. Highly recommended

Everything I expected and more!

The Guide Lucia did an amazing Job!, she was very nice and knowledgeable and kindly answered all the questions in a perfect English. I recommend this tour as a different way of getting to know Buenos Aires historical and cultural aspects, now i know why they call it city that never sleeps.

My 90-year-old father wanted to live the experience of going to see tango where Argentines dance. We went to two Milongas, @clubgrisel and the second @elbeso. We love to see these tango / milongas houses right next to the people who dance and attend.

Our Authentic Tango Experience were wonderful
