- Full-day heart of the city by bike
Today, you’ll make your way to our meeting point to start the ride. Your guide will be waiting for you with our fleet of bikes to discover the beautiful city of Buenos Aires.
After a short briefing session, we will go through the oldest “barrio” (neighborhood) of Buenos Aires: San Telmo, the historical city center, where we will talk about the first settlement of Buenos Aires and how immigration has shaped the city.
We will continue to move further south towards La Bombonera (the Boca Jr soccer team stadium) and will dive deeper into the city’s Art District of La Boca visiting the famous “Caminito”, a place known by its colorful “conventillos” and its street tango exhibitions.
Back on our bikes, we will head to Puerto Madero, which started out as a huge port project and after almost 80 years of abandonment, turned into the most modern and sophisticated district of Buenos Aires. There, we will stop for lunch at a local “parrilla” to enjoy a delicious Argentine barbeque.
We will finish our tour at the very heart of Buenos Aires: the May Square, a historical “plaza” and hotspot for many public demonstrations.
In the evening we’ll pick you up from your hotel to take you to a mystical place where you’ll discover one of our most ancient traditions. Tango is more than our national dance… tango is our immigrant origins, the talent of our local artists, the sensuality of Argentine women and our way to deal with a broken heart; dancing our way through tragic, and yet eternal, love stories.
Tonight you will enjoy a 3-hour professional display of tango and music with a group of local artists on stage immersed in an elegant and alluring place. The manners, ambiance, clothes and dance steps which tango-lovers used to practice 100 years ago will come to life again and you will travel back in time for a night.
This spectacular tango show in Buenos Aires will be accompanied by delicious Argentine and international cuisine. Dinner is all-inclusive, beverages included so you can lose yourself in the ethereal taste of Malbec wine. At the end of the evening, around midnight, you will be driven back to your hotel, fully in love with the bohemian spirit of our incredible city.

- What you need to know about tango culture in Buenos Aires
Tango is, all in all, a cultural experience that’s deeply rooted in Argentine hearts. Where do regular people go dancing tango? There is an immense number of dance halls or milongas in Buenos Aires. Some of our favorites are La Viruta -beginners friendly- and Salon Canning -with more advanced clientele- in Palermo neighborhood. Tango has evolved a big deal in the past years, and now there are also LGBT milongas that encourage a most inclusive practice.
