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.

It was our first time doing tango lessons and we loved it! Out guide Maria was lovely and helped us with the dance and the translation during the night. She was there to answer all our questions and we had meaningful chats about Argentina. We definitely recommand!

Our experience overall was very successful and that was primarily due to our guide/translator for the evening, Maria. She was waiting for us promptly outside of our Airbnb and was incredibly helpful and pleasant. There was a Pride parade that night and traffic was intense but our driver was amazing and knew back ways to get around it so we made it! We were late for our lesson however and when we arrived to the milonga, our Tango instructor had already left - which is the only reason I gave the experience 4 stars - Maria completely saved the evening however by jumping in and teaching the lesson herself! This was only my husband and my second time attempting tango and she was incredibly patient and encouraging and got us out onto the floor with the rest of the dancers faster than either of us expected. I’d absolutely recommend this experience to anyone thinking of trying it.

This was my first real Argentine tango experience. Martin escorted me to a tourist friendly milanga and was very kind as he helped me better understand the code of the milonga and the dance lesson. He even took pictures of me dancing. He danced one set with me and helped me understand how to do the dance assuring me I didn't step on his feet too much! He also answered ally questions about the culture and the communit. I would certainly recommend his services to anyone looking to give it a try.
