One of the trademarks of Buenos Aires is its melancholic and sensual tango music and dance. Knowing where to go to catch a glimpse of the real essence of this tradition is not always an easy task as there are many options, some which include dancing, others that include a theatre like show, and alternatives that serve dinner amongst others.
Cultura Cercana, a tour agency that aims at showing travelers the Argentine version of Argentina, offers a tango tour that acts as a filter of the available options sorting through the tourist traps to get to the places where the buzz is local and genuine. The tour also has the advantage of being guided by a couple of tango dancers who show what they can do and explain the meaning of each gesture and move. Additionally, they offer an optional tango lesson prior to the tour, should you want to try out some dancing yourself and work with reduced groups to keep the attention personalized.
Plus, they take you to and from the hotel.
