Leave your hotel in a comfortable bus and be taken to Tango Porteo, a tango venue that used to be a movie theater, located in Downtown Buenos aires on the famous 9 de Julio Avenue and just a few meters from the obelisk. The theater was restored down to the last detail in pure art-deco style and is complemented with an artistic staff, unbeatable productions, and high-quality gastronomic creations.
If you choose to take the tango class (pick up transfer in not included for this option), you will be able to learn the basic movements of this beautiful sensual dance. In one hour, professional teachers will introduce you to this wonderful dance, declared UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.

The power and the impacting sound of the live band and the singers is going to leave you breathless.The meticulous scenography and costumes at the Tango Porteo create the ultimate framework to transport you to that enchanting time when all Buenos aires was tango. This will be an unforgettable experience.
