Harvey, there are numerous Tango services available and the prices vary a great deal. Too many to list here but if this helps you get an idea of what to expect, the services we recommend usually charge as follows:
A group of 20+ students: USD $20/person (2 hours)
A group of 10+ students: USD $25/person (2 hours)
Individual classes: USD $40/person (2 hours)
I would not know which is the top/best studio. This is a tricky subject. When it comes to learning how to dance the best studio will be the one where you mix correctly with your teacher. Even a not so proficient tango teacher could do a great job instructing you if the combination of personalities results in a good match. This is true for all dances but is particularly important for Tango, since it is such an emotional dance.
When we recommend certain studios we have taken into account the way the instructors are instead of measuring their tango skills. Remember, you want to make the most of those two hours and the greatest tango dancer on earth may not be a guarantee that you will end up performing the 2x4 (this is how we call tango in Buenos Aires). Shop around and compare prices and recommendations. It should not be difficult to find alernatives and when in Buenos Aires, anyone will be able to recommend you "their" choices. Our agency arranges tango classes privately, once a travel package has been set and provided the clients desire this.

I suggest for Tango dancing lessons( among the many proposals) both Mansion Dandy Royal that´s a Hotel that focus on Tango dancing lessons in San Telmo (USA visitors oriented ).
And Casa Monserrat in Monserrat neighbourhood , more European visitors oriented.
Both are great options for lodging and Tango dancing lessons.

I am a single American woman living in Martinez looking for a good group Tango lesson experience. I'm happy to go into town, but will take the train so I don't want it to be too far flung if possible. Any suggestions?

Hello all. Just wanted to chime in here. I was so scared about my tango lesson in Buenos Aires. I finally got the nerve to go, it was 2 hours, all in Spanish, all for 15 pesos. Good price but after the first hour, I was embarassed because I didn't know what they were saying. I will never forget that.
Next day I took the all day Tango Tour, lesson was included with show and everything else. This time, it was a private lesson, in English, and I felt so much better about it. The instructors are so serious there. Scary for me, especially in a different language. But after the lesson, at the Tango show, I was really able to appreciate what I had learned earlier. I came home and singed up for lessons in my town.
That was a fun day. And a good tour.

Following there is a list of places offering tango and milonga lessons/classes. Also, drop-ins are welcome and women can go dance by themselves. There are some codes that are traditional elements for participating in dancing tango/milongas. When inviting for a dance, men signal women by a 'head movement', they respond (or not) and men confirm with a 3rd head movement. This happens at a distance and a direct approach is often discouraged. However, lately, more and more women (foreigners for the most part) have been approaching men in milongas. Don't be shy.
