Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup, head to the cobblestone streets of San Telmo, the birthplace of tango and the oldest barrio in Buenos Aires. Arrive at a conventillo, a historic tenement restored and now used as a restaurant-theater, where La Ventana takes place.

As you stroll through the theaters preserved architectural interior, travel back in time to the tango grandeur of the early 1900s. If youve opted for dinner, arrive 90 minutes before showtime and dig into a three-course meal featuring a wide array of Argentine and international dishes, accompanied by Argentine wines. See below for a sample menu. Or, if you chose the show-only option, slip into your seat in time for the performance, and enjoy provided wine or soft drinks.

Two tango orchestras and an Argentine folk music group provide live accompaniment to the five smartly costumed couples on stage, who grace the stage with sensuality and breathtaking precision.

Listen to both Spanish and indigenous styles of music from the bands as well as vocalists. Get a glimpse of the gaucho culture, or Argentinas version of cowboys, through a demonstration of boleadoras, used to wrangle livestock.

After the show closes with a moving tribute to Eva Pern, your driver takes you back to your hotel.

  • The show was outstanding. It was more than just a Tango show with dinner. It was a cultural immersion. The food was excellent. WOW! The only issue was we were late being picked up, the dinner was a little late in coming and the show start before we finished dinner.

  • A great show . Best show i have every seen.

  • Very good and classy show. The food was very good. Its really worth it!

  • Fabulous dinner show with a variety of tango dancing, music, and singing. The dinner was very good and served with a bottle of wine. The only problem was the pick up at hotels is very unorganized and they need to improve time notification.

  • Great Tango show ! The singers and dancers were first class, very enjoyable !

  • Transportation was a bit iffy. We were told 8:30 whereas everyone else seemed to be told 9pm. After 40 minute wait we were ready to go back to room but thankfully we didn't show starts at 10 btw. Also you need to ring up to confirm that you required transportation, not easy when you have no phone. Organisation of transport after show was pretty good though.

    What an amazing show though, loved every second of it !! A masterclass in Argentine Tango 50 of show , and a superb taste of South America for the remaining 50. We saw another show while in BA but for me this was head and shoulders above. Just Superb !

    Bravo La Ventana !!!

  • This is good to see

  • This was a great show full of very talented dancers, musicians and vocalists. The setting is a beautiful period venue with excellent lighting and sound rigs. I didn't have the food but a very kind Mexican chap I sat next to shared some of his steak and it tasted exquisite. You can sit for an hour to relax and drink as much red wine or soft drinks as you like on arrival. It is central Buenos Aires so no long slog to get there. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The show lasts over an hour and is full of beautiful songs, dances and a diverse array of talented performers. I loved it and although you are not permitted to take photos during the show understandably You can have your photo taken afterwards and chat to the performers. Highly recommended for authentic Argentinian entertainment.!!

  • The service was fantastic! The dancers were amazing, as well.

  • We really enjoyed this show on our first night in Buenos Aires! The Argentine Tango is one of my favourite dances to watch so a tango performance was a must-see for me. The show was set in a charming theatre, and the dancing and singing were excellent. Only minor criticism would be that the performances looked too choreographed. The show only option also included 2 glasses of wine per person.
