Overview

Explore Argentine tango in its natural setting. The Milonga. What you see on the streets of Buenos Aires and in the tango shows is just a small part of what tango really is. Long after the streets of La Boca are empty...after their last bow on stage... many of the dancers head to the milonga and now you can too. Buenos Aires Milonga Tours provides customized tours into the secret world of tango that most tourists never see.

Unless you want see a glitzy west end style or "strictly" type show then give the chicken in a basket and group tours a miss. Find one of these personalised tours in a private or small group where a tango expert takes you to two...More

I took a solo trip to Buenos Aires. As we all know a trip to BA is not complete without some exposure to Tango. If it weren’t for Buenos Aires Milongo Tours I wouldn’t have experienced the local flavor of Tango as I would have...More
