Spend the day on your own, exploring this magical city. What better way to spend an evening in Buenos Aires than with this city's quintessential music? Tango is the music of Buenos Aires par excellence. Its origin can be traced back to 1880 to the slums inhabited by Italian and Spanish immigrants, Africans, and gauchos. Despite its humble origins, in the 1920s tango moved into the high-class ballrooms. To feel its spirit, visit one of the restaurants that offer a high-quality tango show, and enjoy the sensual magnetism of tango performed by some of the best dancers, singers and musicians in Buenos Aires. You will be picked up at your hotel and taken to one of the typical tango houses in the San Telmo, the neighborhood of tango. Dinner will be Argentine specialties including good Argentine wine. After dinner, enjoy a fabulous tango show. After the show (around midnight), return transportation is provided to your hotel.
