We took the Milonga in San Telmo option on a Sunday evening. We went late afternoon and walked around the flea market which was very impressive with lots of lovely things to look at and buy as well as some of the local shops. The area is bustling. We did find a nice restaurant and had a typical local meal and wine nearby. We arrived at the square just before 7 pm and there were already people dancing and lots of spectators. We stayed for quite a while as locals danced (some bringing their dancing shoes to change into and others dancing in their normal shoes) and then some of the more ‘professional’ tango dancers took to the floor who were excellent to watch. It was a lovely atmosphere and later we decided to have a drink in one of the local bars around the square. Afterwards we went back to watch more dancing and then it started to rain so everyone started to leave and we went caught a taxi back to our hotel. It really was a lovely authentic way to see Tango - we spoke to a couple who had been to a show and they preferred the more local/intimate display in the square at San Telmo. Also we felt very safe in the area. We would definitely recommend this visit/tour and Helena’s local knowledge is excellent as is her communication. Thankyou for organising.

My husband and I wanted to see an authentic tango performance — or better yet, a local tango event, without all the sequin costumes and choreography. We had no idea where to start and then we found these amazing reviews of Helena’s Clandestino Music Tours and decided to try. We had the best time!! She clearly knows everyone in the music and tango scene in B.A., so on any given night she really has her finger on the pulse of what’s the best option for a fun evening of tango, or live music. Also, she’s just great fun and has a wealth of knowledge about the city. This is a far better option than just scrolling Facebook and hoping you pick the right place... especially if you’re not from B.A. With Helena, you know you’ll get to see the kind of music scene that best fits your style.

My tour was with Helena’s associate, Nico. What a fun, amazing evening. First was a duo singing and playing acoustics guitars, than we moved into the main ballroom where the duo was accompanied by a 9 piece orchestra. I am new to tango but Nico explained everything so well that now I feel like a tango expert!!

You simply will not get a better experience than going out with Helena! If you want the REAL deal, this is the person you go with. She runs her own milonga and is VERY well connected. Knows where all the locals go and is loved by all. Certainly our most memorable evening in BA.

I had the pleasure of experiencing several wonderful evenings with Helena as my guide, listening and dancing to two brilliant Tango ensembles and a remarkable Salsa Band (we were fortunate enough to be travelling during Carnival!) Helena has a deep passion and understanding of the Argentine music scene, and she can definitely hook you up to the best that the city has to offer. She has some pretty amazing restaurant recommendations as well, and took us to some local, off-the-beaten-path ~Clandestine~ restaurants. She's a delight! Highly recommend!!!
