My fiancé and I visited the Argentine Experience the first night we arrived in Palermo. We r glad we did. We were truly introduced to the culture, food, wine and people of Argentina. They went way beyond my expectations in EVERY area. I especially loved the aroma tasting, and empenada making!!!!

This was the most fun we had while in Buenos Aires. Truly an unforgettable and unique experience. Not traditional but we were kind of tired of the traditional "parilladas" and wanted something different. The steak was the best steak we had in our entire Uruguay and Argentina trip. Cooked perfectly and very tasty. Loved making our own empanadas and they were also delicious. Time does fly when you are having fun and the entire night was lots of fun. It is a very well run operation and of high quality. Juan made the best wine infused cocktails and we also got to meet other travelers from Germany, Canada and South Africa. We even kept partying with people in our group after the Argentinean experience was over. All I can tell you is to go hungry! Plenty of food and the wine kept flowing. An amazing night, I want to do it all over again!

This was an excellent experience from the beginning to the end. We were warmly met and this whole evening was perfectly organized to create interaction between the hosts as well as the other attendees. The food was plentiful and great - probably the best steak I've ever had! Wine was excellent and plentiful as well. Congratulations to the folks for this experience, and thank you for a wonderful time.

You've read all of the other reviews, and they are true. This is a great experience. The food was some of the best I've had in Buenos Aires. The people that were there to assist us while we were there, couldn't have been nicer people. Juan, makes some of the best mixed drinks you will ever have. And, it is fun!!!! Don't hesitate, sign up now.

We could no have had a better evening/dinner. The host was excellent, the company fun, and the food outstanding. There was a blackout in the neighborhood the night we went but doing the entire "experience" by candlelight made it even more fun. We highly recommend this tour!

Besides being the best food I ate on my entire trip, this was one of the very best nights ever. This cooking/eating/laughing experience is totally awesome and would be fun for any ages, including families. We were seated with around 10 other people from all over the world (they have two big tables with around 20 total)...we were poured Malbec from several smaller wineries (best Malbec I had in Argentina), then came the empanada class. Which was a blast. But then came the most incredible steak i've ever tasted in my life, followed by a instructional on everything you wanted to know about matte. (tea). The staff was awesome -hilarious, passionate and obviously love all things Argentinian. Hanging out with others, we all exchanged stories of the best places in B.A. for eating, tango, etc...so this is a great place to start your Argentina trip, as you get tips from everyone else. On the night we were there, everyone at our table had so much fun that when these guys closed up, we all walked a few blocks down to another bar and partied till 2AM. Definately not to be missed. And they're located in the neighborhood of Palermo Hollywood, very safe and not far from central B.A. - there are lots of taxis all around all night for you to get back to your hotel. Totally awesome!

This truly was the highlight of my trip to Buenos Aires. I spent a little over a week in South America. A few days in Rio and a few days in B.A. I had some extra on my last night, so I decided to book this through Viator.com. I am so glad I did, what a pleasent experience. Met some really nice people. Leon, Richard and Carla were amazing hosts and very welcoming. I had e-mailed a few days before hand about my dietary needs and Carla e-mailed back and were able to accomdate me. the empanada making was louds of fun not to mention delicious. So was the mate' and alfajores. Learned so much about Argentine culture. Would absolutly go back to BA just for this. Well Done.
