THE OPTIONS WE OFFER
Pricing below effective January 1, 2023
Pre-Travel Meeting/P. Pachamama, North Beach/San Francisco - Sunday, February 5: $75
The evening includes an essential talk + group Q and A led by Christy & Chelsea (what you need to know, pack, and more) followed by a light dinner (meet your fellow travelers) and a chance for you to dance with one another in an intimate setting while we field any individual questions one-to-one. The cozy, historic Pachamama restaurant itself will transport you to South America the second you pass through its door. Super important meeting, not to be missed!
3-Day Orientation Tour of Buenos Aires with Christy & Chelsea - March 10-12: $399
Experience BA as only we can show you, through the love and connections of our 25 trips to tango's birthplace since the mid-90s! Having missed this glorious city since the onset of the pandemic, we asked ourselves, "What would WE most like to see and do again?" And our longings direct where we will take YOU! We will highlight the beautiful, historic neighborhoods of La Boca, Recoleta and San Telmo through unique interactive adventures, as well as offer a delicious taste of Puerto Madero. Each day begins with morning coffee and ends with dancing at a local milonga. Could you skip our tour and just explore BA on your own? Sure... But you would almost certainly not meet the special people to whom we will introduce you, nor make the magical memories our tour has in store for you. Details forthcoming! - SIGN UP NOW. (Note: approx. $150 of the $399 price will cover actual expenses such as cover charges or meals, but other expenses will be at your discretion.)

Welcome Dinner/Buenos Aires (hosted by Christy & Chelsea) - Monday, March 13: $49
We ourselves look forward to this dinner each year. Why? It's held in a festive, special spot overlooking the water in Puerto Madero, with delicious food to meet every dietary need. A glimpse into a local porteño night 'on the town' to mark birthdays and the like. Relax, sip wine, dine heartily, and further get to know one another as you commence your CITA week!
