A tango show in Buenos Aires is a must-do while you're visiting the capital city of Argentina. Tango provides insight into the Argentine cultural personality; its passion, sensuality, and reverence for history. Tango shows in Buenos Aires seem like they're taking place on every corner, but you're in good hands with this particular Buenos Aires tango show at El Querandí. The venue has been called 'living evidence of civic memory' and transports you back to the height of the tango era in the early 20th century.

After pickup at your hotel and transport to El Querandí (if upgrade selected), be seated for your show. Relax and let the culture and beauty of the tango wash over you. Live musicians sing and play instruments like the violin, bass, accordion, and piano while some of Buenos Aires' most skilled tango dancers take to the floor. Many a lifelong tango fan have been made at tango shows. Buenos Aires is the cultural center of this seductive dance, and many first-time tourists eventually return again and again to see the shows and dance the tango themselves.

Dinner Upgrade: If the dinner option is selected, be seated for a traditional 3-course Argentine feast. Choose from several dishes for each course, from Argentine to international dishes, accompanied by local wines. As the dinner winds down, coffee and a celebratory glass of sparkling wine are provided before viewing the best tango show Buenos Aires has to offer.

Your evening ends with hotel drop-off (if upgrade option selected).

Good show, great food
Megan_G
, Mar 2020
Pickup and drop off were fast and prompt. Dinner was delicious and as a solo traveler I got a bottle of wine to myself (didn’t drink all of it, but still nice). The show was very good, showcasing the history and evolution of tango. My guide book had stated that the show at this venue was more “low key”, but the dancers had some pretty impressive moves! Tiny complaints: there was a bit too much singing and musical interludes compared to the dancing, and be advised that pillars may obscure some views (not by much though - you will still see the majority of the action).

Worthwhile experience
Joseph_L

Tango show was excellent, even better than we expected. Songs by male singers were all unknown to us as Americans. They may have chosen those more classic and familiar. Dinner was generally good but steak was disappointing-a bit tough and difficult to cut. We could have done without the photographer. All in all, it was a worthwhile experience and would highly recommend it for its talent and small, intimate venue. Transporting to and from our hotel was well organized.

The tango dances were really good. Orchestra was v good as well. Great costumes. Besides tango dances, there were a number of solo/duet songs. Didn't understand as they were all Spanish opera. Could have fewer songs. We opted for show only (no dinner) but were offered complimentary wine/beer and one appetizer or dessert item. Good touch. Pick up and drop off at hotel was great as show started around 10:15 and ended 11;30.

Entertaining show. would have liked it better if the seats were closer to stage. Too far away. Food was ok. After a seat adjustment because of an insect issue i felt better.

Good Tango Experience

The tango show was a very good way to experience tango. We would have preferred a bit more dancing and a bit less singing and musical instrumentation, however, we very much enjoyed the show. The dinner was nice but not exceptional.

Excellent way to get introduced to the tango
BillC3333
, Dec 2019
Everything came off as advertised. We were picked up on time, the venue was small enough that everyone could have a decent view, and the talent was excellent. The violinist in the orchestra in particular was a major concert-level talent. We enjoyed that the show focused on the history of the evolution of the dance, as we didn't know much about it. The food was much better than expected and the service was excellent. Our one complaint was the use of cell phones by other people. People would hold their phones up to tape the show, right in front of others, both interfering with and distracting from other peoples' view of the show. This kind of behavior, while increasingly prevelent these days, is extremely rude. I would recommend that the place make people turn their phones off or throw them out.

I have always enjoyed watching the Tango on Strictly, but to watch it in Buenos Aries was fantastic. The meal was very good with plenty of wine, unfortunately I did not think much of the male singer, I would have preferred the show to be all dancing. If I had the chance to go back again I would. The pick-up and trip back to the hotel was very well organised.

Hotel pick up worked well. Dinner choices were good, well presented and value for money. Show was excellent. Very well thought out, describing the history of the tango with authentic costumes. Our group enjoyed the whole experience. We'll worth a visit.

My wife and I were excited to book this tour, especially after reading all the wonderful reviews. We excitedly awaited pick up from our hotel, which all went well and was on time. On arrival at the venue we were welcomed and shown to our table and a waiter approached and asked which wine we preferred, unfortunately my husband would have preferred beer but as we had been asked about the wine that was what we got it was a bottle per couple, however if you were one person you got a bottle to yourself. The venue was an old time theatre which was set up well with all the tables and chairs. The stage was elevated so most of the people could see, however one gentleman was seated behind a pole and he asked to be moved. The menu was completely different from the one advertised except there was steak. One entree was like a taco and another was beef and chicken pastries which were like small pasties - both were very nice. We both ordered steaks but these were like chewing boot leather so very disappointed, deserts were also good. The show took you through different eras of the tango, all the dancers were amazing, how some of the gentleman aren't injured more with foot placement is a credit to the dancers. They were excellent and a pleasure to watch. An elderly gentleman sang songs in Spanish. He obviously could sing however we could have done with less of him. We weren't offered coffee or a celebration champagne at the end, nor was there a photographer as per another review. At the end of the evening a folder was passed to you for tipping and then we were approached by a staff member to tell us our transport was waiting so we were hurried from the venue only to wait outside for about 15 minutes for our bus. Overall, show, entrees and deserts were good, main was a disappointment and the overall night was not up to what was reviewed previously. I hope this was a one off poor night for this excursion and everyone else continues to have a positive experience. Also of note, you aren't allowed to take photographs during the show, just in case you were hoping to.

The tango dancers, band, and singers were excellent in their performances showing the history of the tango. Rate this excellent. Would recommend guests request front seating we were seated on the side from the stage which was satisfactory, but the front-on viewing would be preferable. Photos no flash and videos allowed, where other venues do not allow. The meal we chose steak was just OK - not what I envisioned for Argentina steak!

Taxi picked us up and delivered us home to our hotel as advertised. Dinner was of a good standard, with exceptional service. The show was informative and entertaining, and although Tango is not my thing, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience......the wife absolutely loved it. When visiting Buenos Aires a Tango show is a must see and there are plenty to choose from......this one was extremely good in terms of value and entertainment.

The dancers were nothing short of amazing. The talent, the intricate steps, the strength, and the costumes kept us mesmerized. It was a full evening of entertainment with singers and musicians added in. It was a highlight of our days in Buenos Aires, and I would highly recommend it. The dinner was delicious with sufficient choices to make our group happy.
