Overview

Our tango tours and tango lessons will lead you into the hidden, passionate world of tango. Created by international artists (musicians, dancers, writers) who have found their inspiration in Buenos Aires, Gotan Tours creates experiences designed for those who seek a deeper understanding of Argentine tango and are not satisfied by pre-packaged tourist fare. Our tango lessons - available as part of our tours or separately - are designed to give absolute beginners a relaxed and meaningful introduction to dancing tango. Whether you plan to take just one class "to get the feel" of tango or suspect it could be the beginning of a life-long passion, we will help you take your first steps in tango. Because we are a part of the local arts scene, Gotan Tours can escort you through the Buenos Aires nights like no one else.
