    This was our first tour of our trip. It was perfect! It set the trip off with the type of foods, the types of gestures, the type of people... I definitely recommend doing this at the top of your itinerary. We had so much fun and suggested it to everyone we spoke to during our stay.

    Excellent food, wine and entertainment! A great way to kick off or close your time in B.A. They were not stingy with the food or drink!!! 🍷 Our teenage daughters had a blast!

    We LOVED the Argentine Experience!! The staff were fun, knowledgable and overall wonderful. We did the mixology class first and made 3 tasty cocktails, then proceeded to dinner. The food was fantastic, and the wine was unlimited. I would definitely do this again on a return visit to BA!!!
