Small-Group City Tour of Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires’ neighborhoods each have a distinctive character from the historic barrios of San Telmo and La Boca, to the beautiful parks and plazas of Palermo and Recoleta, and the modern skyscrapers of Puerto Madero. This small-group tour is ideal for first-time visitors or those short on time, visiting all of the top attractions in just half a day.

I attended the Luces, la revolución show with a group of 9 students and one other adult. I was the only fluent Spanish speaker, though most of the others know some degree of the language. I chose it because of its uniqueness, and I figured that 50 minutes was short enough if they had a hard time understanding. I feel they spoke slowly and enunciated well, and most of my students were able to follow the gist. The performance itself was stellar, though I didn't think to tell the students to close their eyes. It is PITCH BLACK DARK, so there's no way your eyes will ever focus. As a result, several nearly had panic attacks and ended up in existential ponderings about what is real and what is a construct. Closing my eyes, though, led to a wonderful experience.

A fantastic experience that must be known! Have you ever think of the blessing that we have into our eyes? Our view! People who see doesn't care much about their other senses, just like the smell or the hearing. Here, in this show you can feel, you can touch, smell and hear everything, but you can't see. At first freaks you out, but then it's funny as everything good thing that we discovered. It's amazing. People around the world are used to go to a theatre to WATCH the show. Well, this is a complete different side. The main player is the imagination, I mean, how you can imagine something that you can't see? Here it's everybody's own verssion because nobody imagine like you or me. Now I pay attention to my other senses, and I'm so grateful for all of them. I totally recommend.

I supposed for $1500 should be a bit more organized to detailed. They told us 9:30pm, and made us wait outside until 9:55 pm. After letting us inside you could have some wine, beer or soda. The wine was terrible and couldn’t drink it. The tables so small and shared with other people and it’s impossible not to step or be stepped on your feet. All the food is already on your plate and it’s far away from being gourmet. Some finger food you that basically you eat it in the 10-25 minutes after entering. They don’t give you anything else to drink during show, only bottle of water u have on table. You can’t use the bathroom or phone during this hour and half.

we have been on SONIDO 360, The Queen concert. And in one word is NO. Don't get me wrong, this wasn't totaly bad, but overall it's a lost of time. I'm crazy about the sound, I work in the music busines organizing concerts and festivals. I was courious what a great experience it can be when you just stay focus on the sound as you listenning the music in totaly dark room, just one sense is really engaged. And...what it is is just boring experience. After 4-5 songs you just know that it is not what it should be. the sound is just OK, but just Ok is not what I have expected. yes it is all around you but you can feel the same in good quality cinemas all around the world. Very far from the real concert PA, where you can feel the subs in your stomache. also using one sense it's just boring after few songs as you can't expect anyrhing more for the next...70 minutes!!! that's another minus as it was announced as 60 minutes show and finaly lasts more than 90 minutes which by the way has destroyed our next plans. So, my feelings after 20 minutes was that I would love to see Fredy's face with these curve theeth, see the reaction of people, feel more! And instead of I just got another 70 minutes boring sound in the dark. Finalizing my opinion - that would be much much better if that would be dedicated sound show prepared for this room, for this particular sound system (which is nothing extraordinary by the way) than just any concert adopted to this place. I belive that the live performance / show with actors can do much better work here so try rather that...

Cena Ciego / Blind Dinner. I guess it's my fault, as I was going into this thinking it'd be more of a dinner than a show: a gastronomic experience without light to savor and really enjoy the food we were eating from a different perspective. However, the food was below average -- pretty crappy street quality stuff like you'll get on any corner. Almost everything was bread or breaded, with the exception of the skewered olives/tomatoes. The food probably cost 50 pesos TOTAL. If you're trying to avoid bread or processed cheap foods, forget the night altogether! What you can certainly give them credit for is the descriptions of the food. Basically a cheap empanada-like item with poor ground/shredded chicken inside is described as "Pollo estilo Tailandes". And your cheap desert cake is described as "Bavaroise de Maracuya y base de genoise de chocolate." Well done on the descriptions! (Recommended to read the food descriptions before entering the theater in order to trick your brain that the food is better than it really is!) You won't be content with the food, either, the 6 bite-size items probably leave you with a meal of 3-500 calories. Forget your typical big Argentinian portion sizes here. Now I know this isn't easy to do when you're eating in the dark, and they do well to avoid using utensils, but there are infinite options for good food otherwise. When you consider what the night cost -- something like 1,300 pesos -- don't consider this a dinner treat, you're paying for the blind show and nothing more. -- As for the show, my Spanish is good but my listening of the Argentinian accent not quite up to par and that detracted from the night for me. I did love the girl's singing even without enjoying it. My financee (native Spanish speaker) LOVED the show and the night overall, however, so take my opinion into account only if you're really looking for an excellent gastronomical experience.
