A brief note
Music and dance are a huge part of South American culture, from Samba to Tango to the all out craziness of carnival there is something for everybody to enjoy.
The most famous dance that has emerged from Argentina is of course the Tango with its classic music rhythm and its very distinctive steps and movements it it unmistakable and practiced throughout the world. In Argentina, especially in Buenos Aires, there are many places where you can give the Tango a go for yourselves.
Tango is however, not the only dance for which Argentina is known as the Gaucho culture of the rural areas have a style all of their own. The folklore music as is known is a much more rustic experience with gauchos “stamping” moves to copy the horses of which they are so dependent as well as the swinging of handkerchiefs and beautiful ladies dressed in traditional garb. A folklore concert is something not to be missed while in the Northern parts of the country and we will be more than willing to show you the very best Salta has to offer.
Our North West Argentina Music and Dance experience will show you our local style and the rhythms that pulsate through our daily lives and onto our dance floors.
In the month of February the whole of Latin America comes alive with the world famous carnival, parties are everywhere at this time of year with outdoor concerts and carnival processions filling the streets. If you are people who like to party this is definitely the time to come.
Gareth picked us up and off we went…up into the mountains: Quebrada de Humahuaca, overnighting in Tilcara. It was great having a personal English speaking guide who ensured we did the sorts of things that interested us. Day 2 the awesomeness continued, visiting Salinas Grandes and Purmamarca …before the drive back to Salta airport in plenty of time for our flight! Thankyou !
We did both of our tours with Gareth, who was a total legend. He really went above and beyond to give us the best trip ever, and we felt we left having gained a friend.
“The pace of the trip was perfect and Gareth was an excellent guide- informative, knowledgeable and friendly. We have some fantastic memories (and photos) of the trip. Thanks again for making our time so memorable”.
“Our guide was Gareth, originally from England, a very special boy for his sympathy connected to a great kindness and attention to the needs of tourists.
For us, the main feature was the fact of providing us with important information of the places visited, always willing to accommodate our requests, also leaving space to visit alone.
