We travel together, we get to know each other, we experience Buenos Aires together. At the same time you set your own pace, you decide what is important to you, there is time for individual exploration. Our information package tells you about the city, about the arts, what is happening during the time you are there.

Our DINNER/CONVERSATION package is not included in the basic cost of the tour to give you the freedom to participate or not as you choose. We have basic guidelines as to the additional cost of it. Ask us for details.

We have chosen where to dine carefully. We give you the opportunity to join us for a culinary exploration of Buenos Aires. We have invited local people to join us to give you the opportunity to converse and get to know the city and its people on a personal level. Try your Spanish or speak English, we will have a good time.

From the traditional fine restaurant to the traditional Argentinean way of eating pizza, from the beautifully restored traditional cafe to the neighbourhood confiteria, from casual empanadas to european elegance, we will explore the barrios, the neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires as we get ready to experience dancing in the Milongas nearby.

The MILONGAS – move the curtain aside and step into the world of tango!!!! You have seen La Ideal, you have heard of Nino Bien, Gricel is familiar as is Viejo Correo. There are more, we have chosen traditional milongas where many of the milongueros/tangueras choose to dance to the music of the golden era orchestras as well as milongas where music of todays generation is heard. Dance in the afternoons, dance the nights away. Find out what it is like at a group class in Buenos Aires and study with wellknown teachers at our private group classes.

We want to take you to the heart of Tango. To us, it means an experience of the city, its people, its culture, its food, its language as well as the Dance. Our program brings you to the “must see” tourist places that you have heard about. It then continues to bring you closer to its people and their daily lives. Buenos Aires is a big city. It is vibrant, it makes you come alive. It has its rythm. Like any big city it has its light side and its dark side. Together EDUARDO and KIKKI and their team will be your guides to a safe and secure experience and your resource for your very own, personal experiences of the heart of Tango – the beautiful, querido Buenos Aires.
