What people are saying about Buenos Aires

The whole process went very smoothly..We loved the Tango lessons and the show was amazing..We were pleasantly surprised that dinner was delicious and the wine glasses were never empty..This is an experience not to be missed and it was a very good value

A great show with excellent dancers and a very special live orchestra. Our expectations were definitely exceeded. We booked the show without catering. You can also order drinks and small dishes from the friendly staff on site.

Show was amazing and worth seeing. If you haven't experienced tango before. It would be the good start warching it. Ambience was cool. Highly recommend.

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.

Lovely venue, excellent performers, dancers, musicians, and great food and service. I definitely highly recommend.
