Two things that you can't leave without having 'experience' - tango & steak. You'll have plenty of opportunity to find either yourself, but perhaps we could highlight two tours which we feel get you further under the skin of the capital...
The Esquina Carlos Gardel Tango Show is the best tango shows in the city. A three course meal is included, with wines from Rutini. Carlos Gardel was born in the 1880's and went on to become one of the biggest stars of South America before his untimely death in a plane crash in Colombia in 1935. Most famous for the hundreds of tangos he wrote and recorded he also appeared in several silent movies and collaborated with many other artists. The show plays at this impressive 430-seat theater, an old cantina right next to the lovely shopping mall Mercado de Abasto. The Abasto neighborhood was once Carlos Gardel’s old stomping ground, and he even hung out at this locale. The memorable show starts with a good film about the area, then goes on to highlight top-notch musicians and performers.
Parrillas are Argentine restaurants offering the most traditional cuisine. Most visitors to Buenos Aires end up dining in touristy parrillas published in guidebooks and sadly miss out on some of the city’s most delicious gems. To experience and taste authentic Porteño flavours, we have a tour will allow you to discover some of the hole-in-the wall restaurants where only the locals go and learn more about Argentina’s culture and cuisine. This tour centres around the Las Cañitas section of Palermo, a neighbourhood known for its beautiful tree lined avenues, historic polo fields, and burgeoning culinary and nightlife scene. The tour begins at a classic parrilla filled with soccer fanatics and known for its choripan. Next, you will visit a casa de empanadas to try some great handmade empanadas, before moving on to enjoy some of the best meat and service in the city at a historic and hidden parrilla famous among locals. Finally you will finish at a fabulous artisan 'heladeria' (ice cream shop).
