Why do I need a private tango teacher?

Your time in Buenos Aires is short and you have come too far away not to get the best out of the Capital of Tango. Private classes is the quickest way to achieve your aim in Tango unless of course you live here and attend classes every week for at least 6 months; this is not an option for most people. What you learn in one private class is equivalent to what you will learn in a month of a group class, depending on your level and talent of course. Group classes are great but you need time to benefit a great deal. People who live here goes to classes every week throughout the year. Don't waist your time you are only in the Capital of tango probably once in a year and you need to get the best out of it. Don't wait till you come back again only now matters and why leave what you can do today till tomorrow?

Why should I book accommodation with you?

Because we will not put you in a place not fit to live. There are many stories we can tell you, organizing apartment through a friends mother turning out to be a cold apartment in winter. The location is not accessible, the standard is low. We can tell you so much but there is no point. People mean well but what they call comfortable here might not be what you see as comfortable. Our boss is from Europe and insists on high standard of the West as a result all our accommodation are specially vetted.

It depends on your accommodation choices. If you choose apartment/tango guesthouse, what we quote you is what you pay as single or as two sharing.

Every year, more and more people from overseas choose Buenos Aires to retire or to call home. Buenos Aires has beautiful parks. Family-owned coffee shops that have been around for over 100 years can be found on almost every corner, as well as artists. The architecture will take your breath away.

Buenos Aires also has some of the best restaurants in the world. For Argentineans, steaks are not only food but also nearly a religion. You will never, ever have a tastier steak anywhere else. We guarantee it. If you thought New York was the city that never sleeps when it comes to going out, wait until you go to Buenos Aires. People dance all night long and leave the nightclubs way after the sun starts to shine above the horizon.

Outside Buenos Aires you will find estancias, rural areas where the gauchos live. These Argentinean cowboys are typical. When you visit an estancia, you will go horseback riding and eat the best asado (barbecue) of your life, prepared by an authentic gaucho.
