Following pickup from your Medellin hotel, head off on a walking and coach tour of tango-related landmarks. 

Learn about Carlos Gardel, considered by many to be tango's most important figure, through stops at museums, monuments and avenues dedicated to his memory. Stop by the Gardel Café, run by the Casa Gardeliana Cultural Foundation, where tango classes are held. See the Casa Museo Gardeliana, the San Pedro Cemetery Museum and the Olaya Herrera Airport. Hear about Gardel's cultural legacy from your guide during a stop at Gardel Plaza to admire the impressive sculpture dedicated to the father of tango's legacy. 

Arrive at Restaurante La Rueca or El Patio del Tango (venue chosen by your guide on the day of your tour) to witness a live tango show. Take in the intense energy and the athletic, delicate movements of the talented dancers. Order some Argentine wine and steak (own expense) before enjoying drop-off at your hotel after the tour. Alternatively, you may choose to remain at the venue after the show and find your own way home.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Medellín Colombia
Medellín shows off its sensuous sounds and passionate tempo on many street corners – especially during the International Tango Festival held in June. Join your expert guide year-round in this Colombian city, known for its cultural and artistic scene, and enjoy the rich rhythms of tango music and dance. After pickup from your hotel, embark on a cultural tour – on foot and by vehicle – and explore several city attractions that commemorate Carlos Gardel, considered by many to be the most important figure in tango music. Listen to the beat of old tunes and hear stories that pay homage to this world-renowned musician, who died in a plane crash in Medellín in 1935. As you visit avenues, monuments and museums in his name, learn about tango’s 18th-century origins from your guide. Head to iconic spots like Olaya Herrera Airport, the San Pedro Cemetery Museum, the Casa Museo Gardeliana and the Gardel Café where tango classes are held – an initiative of the Casa Gardeliana Cultural Foundation. Visit Gardel Plaza to see a sculpture of the singer that oversees the park where his cultural legacy lives on. When you arrive at El Patio del Tango, experience the intense, delicate movements of a live tango show. Enjoy the rich combination of Argentine wine and steak (own expense) during the performance before your guide drops you off at your hotel. You can also choose to linger at the venue of your choice for lunch, dinner or drinks (not included) and make your own way back to your accommodation.
