If only one human activity could symbolise Buenos Aires, it would have to be Tango. The distinctive dance reflects the city’s soul, merging its immigrant heritage with Latin charm on the River Plate. 

Pioneering Soul

Go around the southern barrio where Tango sprung up, helped by the immigrants who left Europe and struggled to make a living for themselves. Their memory remains strong in the vibrant open-air museum of El Caminito. Known for its pastel-colored houses and the eponymous song by famous singer Carlos Gardel, it is a place where – if you look past the vendors and street performers – you can experience the soul of Tango. Your expert guide will be able to tell the story of how the dance developed and even show some of the moves.
