Stay away from the dinner package! We payed 100 dollar per person for a three course meal. The main course was a really bad steak. I would compare it to the sole of my shoe. Definitely not worth 100 dollar. We had to return the...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San

Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many
different cultures: a true child of immigration, much
like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after

locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique

I can't recall if there was an extra fee but I don't believe so, I think it was reserved from when you book the show, however, ask them when you make the reservation.
