Full description
Milongas are local neighborhood clubs, open 365 days a year, where the Porteños (Buenos Aires locals) gather together to dance tango. Each milonga has its own characteristics which makes it unique. From the more traditional, with strict rules and codes, to the more relaxed or “underground” clubs that bring together people of all ages. Experience a night of real tango with local people. Your guide will pick you up at your hotel to go to a milonga, where you'll join a shared dancing lesson with an expert to learn the basics of tango. The guide will also explain the history, codes and characteristics of tango so that you can better understand its dynamics and interact with the locals. After that you'll be able to practice what you learned, mixed with the Porteños. You'll enjoy the vibe of the music while you dance, or simply watch the Porteños. Once it's over, the guide will take you back to your hotel with the certainty that it will be a night you'll remember forever.

Martin and Martin were on time at our AirBNB to pick us up. They were very friendly and made the 10 minute car ride enjoyable. When we arrived we were a little nervous as none of us had really danced the Tango before. The lesson was simple enough to follow along and the instructors were incredibly kind and patient. When ever we were stuck our guide Martin was there to step in and offer some extra help which made us feel so comfortable. When it was time for the real dancing Martin lead each of us around the dance floor for an extremely fun experience. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone looking for an amazing night out and experience Tango in a super authentic way. This experience was more then we could have asked for and I can't wait to go back to Argentina and dance more Tango!

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

We had booked a private lesson. That was ideal because our current dance status with regard to Tango Argentino could be dealt with and built up.
