What you'll do

We have adapted our experience in order to take care of your health and make you feel comfortable with the new rules about Covid-19, however always aiming to knowing the authentic tango of the city.

If you bought this service and for some reason related to the pandemia, you couldn’t use it, you can reschedule or get your money back.

Dancing Tango is an opening of the soul to the person you are dancing with, it’s a magical feeling that, when one feels it, one understands right away that it’s a lifestyle and also why this movement keeps existing through time until today, and that’s why people still live it in different bars and places around the city.

This experience is right for this! It’s not only seeing or knowing Tango… It’s undertanding it, living it, and, specially, feeling it!

And how are we going to achieve all of this?
We will go to a tiny and old mansion in the ‘tanguero’ neighborhood of San Telmo, where we can relax a little bit in an open air terrace, private to our group;
Then, we will take a grupal tango lesson (it’s not required, but recommended), when we will learn basic things about tango, so we will be able to dance with local people;
Now, let’s go to the milonga! The milonga is the place where local people go to dance tango regularly (private transfer is included);
Showtime!! Finally, we wil see a performance of a live orchestra or a couple of professional dancers!

I am Spanish living in Buenos Aires for more than five years. I dedicated myself to the world of tourism that I left for the love of tango. Today after leaving the corporate world I am a teacher, a tango dancer and happy.
It makes me fall in love to accompany people to discover this wonderful world, to convey this feeling and the beauty of this world is the best return to so much that gave me the tango. What makes me happiest when taking tourists to the real tango is, when they say "Manuel ... as soon as I return, I will learn to dance Tango" for me it is ...! MISSION COMPLETED".

Every day is different in the world of Tango. Depending on the day we will go to one place or another. I have made a selection that ensure and prioritize learning, fun but above all authenticity. A day before I will confirm the place and I will tell you how it is so that if you want we can change it to your choice. There is a wide range of possibilities.

    We had an amazing night with Camilla (Manuel was injured and couldn’t make it with us). We started the night by learning some tango and then continued on to a very authentic location to watch locals dance and we joined in ourselves ! We had a wonderful night and a wonderful experience. It was perfect!

    Esta experiencia estuvo increíble. Camila y Manuel tuvieron gran atención conmigo y me ayudaron a llegar al local cuando andaba perdida. Camila es una gran maestra, muy cálida y auténtica. Nos enseñó lo más importante del tango y luego nos llevó a un lugar genial donde vimos una pareja professional al igual que los Tángeros de BA que bailan como profesionales. Me encanta el tango y recomiendo esta experiencia 100%!

    We had an absolutely wonderful time. Camila, who filled in for Manuel, was a wonderful guide and company. This was an incredibly gorgeous, authentic experience. I recommend it to everyone visiting BA.

    Esta experiencia es lo que necesitas si quieres acercarte al tango como local, vivirlo y entenderlo. Camila es una mujer maravillosa, apasionada con el tango y con poder compartir su amor y respeto por este y mantenerlo vivo. Esta experiencia tiene de todo, un poco de historia, de pasos básicos y finalmente presenciar cómo se baila el tango en una milonga y poner en práctica lo aprendido! Camila estuvo todo el tiempo con nosotros (una hermosa pareja y yo), explicándonos un poco las reglas implícitas del lugar y del baile, siempre procuro guiarnos y animarnos a bailar (con mucho respeto). Recomiendo incansablemente a cualquiera que venga a Buenos Aires que se de la oportunidad de esta experiencia, no se arrepentirá :) gracias mil a Manuel y a Camila.

    Camila took the tour since our instructor Manuel was out for broken knee. She was upbeat, delightful and very knowledgeable also about the ins and outs of the milonga. More than teaching us steps she taught us how to feel the tango and the steps came from there. Camila is an upbeat, charming and happy person who showed up with enthusiasm and authenticity.

    This was such a fun experience! Not only did we learn the history of the Tango, we also learned the basic first steps of the Tango and then we were able to try out our new skills in a milonga. Camila had such a beautiful personality and was a ball of energy which made the experience even more special! It was an experience worth repeating again and again!
