Our journey to Buenos Aires from 3rd to 17th January 2019 is finished now.
It has been 2 intensive and unforgettable weeks in the sunny Tango capital..
Besides getting to know Tango in its original place and birth town, we went through almost all the neighborhoods, getting the taste of how porteños live. We visited the touristic highlights of course, but we interacted as well with local people
Buenos Aires is a city of contrasts and that is exactly what we managed to experience in our daily walking through the town. From La Boca to Recoleta, from San Telmo to Palermo, from Almagro to Belgrano, we discovered the essence of each area and we visited the top milongas and practicas, many in the night and some in the afternoon.
Of course we visited as well Tango shoes and tango clothes shops, music shops and bookshops.
Besides that we had two great workshops, in Milonga with Hernan Alvarez Prieto, and Vals with Corina de la Rosa. We did as well one special class of Gyrotonics with Corina de la Rosa and a guided practica with Carina Mele.
To succeed in the Tango scene, we did four classes of Spanish language.
And finally to get a full impression of argentinian daily life, we had and asado and milonga with local dancers, and an afternoon practica with the traditional mate and Argentinean bakery.
This was not a luxury touristic trip, but a trip of discovering, a trip to approach to Argentinean way of live and dance, getting to understand better the soul of "porteños"
And of course enjoying the argentinean gastronomic especialities
Our concept is traveling because of tango and developing friendship at the same time.
The meaning of our Tango trips is not just dancing, but understanding the culture and mentality that is behind the dancing.
Our way of traveling is very flexible, you decide how much you want to spend in flight and sightseeing. That makes our trips affordable to everybody. You may join the whole trip or just few days, and participate in the activities you are interested.
We have many activities already planned when traveling, but we always leave some free time for spontaneous happenings, or just to do your own.
We offer permanent guidance and coordination in sightseeing, scheduled classes and workshops, and milongas. You bring your tango soul and your best smile
