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, and then a typical tango orchestra will perform live. You'll enjoy the vibe of the music while you dance, or simply watch the Porteños. Once it's over, guides will take you back to your hotel with the certainty that it will be a night you'll remember forever.

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

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

Laura and Martin are very sweet, lovely people, always in great communication with us. They picked us up from our hotel, gave us private Tango lesson and took us to a milonga. We had a great evening and real Tango experience. Highly recommend!!!!
