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 or Restaurante La Rueca, 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.
