Selected the VIP package and pleased we did
The package included private transfers for hotel, 3 course dinner with choices for each course, open bar and of course the show
Dinner was surprisingly good 4/5 rating, unhurried and friendly service
The show was in an intimate theatre across the road from restaurant with seating format being individual tables close to stage with champagne provided and spirits available
All aspects of performance was of high calibre and included not only the Tango dancers but female and male singers and Peruvian style folk bandhighlight of show

The tango show was really good and we enjoyed it but the dinner wasn't worth it.

An absolute Must! The best show in town. The dancers are outstanding and the musicians too. The piano player was extraordinary!
Really suuuuper!
The dinner, I went for the traditional menu, was not that great. The steak was very good,but the rest mediocre.Service was good and friendly. I also liked the Malbec.

Every tourist show in BA is going to be over the top and not what you'd see in a true local dance hall. That being said, it's still a great experience for first-time visitors. For the price (show-only) you get a pretty good value in free transport, 2 drinks and a colorful, entertaining show.

My biggest gripe is that since I was a solo traveler they put me at a table where half the stage was blocked by a column. The theater was not full (no one was in the upper balcony) and that table honestly has no business being there. Once the show started and they closed the doors they did move me to an open table with a better view, but in the back of the room.

This was okay, a bit touristy

Disappointing. The tango is such a beautiful art form. Its enthralling, in and of itself. But, these people put on a glittery Las Vegas-style Review. Such a shame people come all this way to Buenos Aires, and are left with this impression - Also, they need to be clear about the time. It states, Tour Details. Time: Dinner and Show: 7:00 Show Only 8:30. So, I arrive at the venue at 6:45 for dinner. The owner/operator says no, its at 8:00. I had dinner elsewhere, and game back for the show which is in fact at 10:00.
