There’s something very special about learning about a culture and its people through the language of Art. An experienced docent will share with you the National Museum of Fine Arts, which houses several of Argentina’s finest painters; Malba (Latin American Art Museum) and the best art galleries in Buenos Aires.

Gallery Tours

For our gallery tours, our art director selects the three most fascinating and varied exhibits to explore. You will see the newest in painting, sculpture and photography, by Argentine and Latin American artists. At each stop, your guide, who holds a Ph.D. in arts education will lead the group in lively discussions.

Afternoon with the Masters

Led by a contemporary art enthusiast, this tour is ideal for art connoisseurs, fine art collectors, or any person seeking an exclusive experience. The tour provides an opportunity to visit studios of recognized local painters, silversmiths and plastic artists. Your guide will help you gain insight into Latin American masterpieces and explore the vision of Argentine contemporary art.

Colon Theater: Private tour

The venerable Teatro Colon reopened last May after three years of restoration works, with a star-studded opera calendar that includes Puccini's La Bohème and Mozart's Don Giovanni.

A fascinating guided tour of the world-class opera, ballet and classical music facility. Teatro Colón, opened in 1908, has hosted the likes of Callas, Toscanini, Stravinsky, Caruso and Pavarotti.

The tour of the theater and museum provides a glimpse of the building's inner workshops including visits with set-builders, costumers, and wig-makers.

Differences between Tango shows and Milongas

The Tango Shows take place in high-end theatres or Salons where the best professional dancers display the best tango in the city. These are shows where locals as well as tourists go. There are two tipes of Tango shows, the big ones and those that have an intimate atmosphere. I recommend the small ones which have twenty tables and the show is very modern and has a great band too.

Don`t miss a night at a Tanguería. It is a memorable experience where you can watch the best tango dancers at a Tango show.

The Milongas are dance clubs, where locals go to dance tango. Most milongas are held on a regular basis (usually weekly), and they often begin with dancing classes and sometimes demonstration dances. Usually, three to five songs of a kind are played in a row followed by a short musical break (called cortina) to clear the dance floor and facilitate partner changes. There are a number of informal rules that dictate how dancers should choose their dancing partners.

Inspired to hit the dance floor? We can arrange that too.

Our recommendation:

If you want to experience the real Tango it is necessary to visit both places since they are completely different and they represent the essence of Buenos Aires.
