    Buenos Aires es mi segunda ciudad preferida después de Bogotá, su arquitectura, comida y espectáculos son innumerables y todos muy buenos y especiales. Los paseos a pie de lo mejor

    This tour is fantastic! Of all the tours available, we were drawn to this one because of the small size, and incredibly glad that we were. Not only does the small size make it easier to navigate the narrow pathways of the cemetery, but also makes it much easier to hear, learn, and engage throughout the tour. The guide, Carlos, was at the meeting spot early to greet us (and called us beforehand to confirm and provide more detailed instructions for the meet-up), then proceeded to give us an incredibly fun and informative tour of the cemetery and surrounding area. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the cemetery's history and many of its residents, which he uses to tell stories about their lives and deaths that also paint a picture of the history of Argentina itself. And in case that sounds dry, rest assured he's also very funny and charming (he had us laughing out loud on multiple occasions). The tour was so good that we decided to book a different one for the following morning that went into more of the history of the country and how it's shaped the current political and cultural environment. I would HIGHLY recommend both!

    I just finished this tour. The guide was amazing - he shared so much interesting info and history that I had to find a place to sit down and make notes so I don't forget it all. We went all over Recoleta and one of the Palermo neighborhoods. We closed out our time together with him marking up my map with things he thinks I'll be interested in seeing based on our conversation. This is a great way to get an in-depth and really interesting walk back into history.

    We took this tour, which focuses on the cemetery. Our guide, Elizabeth, was amazing and all the historical knowledge she knew of the graves and the people in the cemetery. It was a walk through Argentine history. The cemetery is gorgeous and so is the church next-door. Unfortunately it started to rain, but Elizabeth graciously gave us her umbrella. It was a wonderful afternoon despite the weather.

    I had a wonderful tour with Victoria as my tour guide. She has excellent knowledge of the history of Argentina and provided a great detailed tour of the cemetery as well as sharing other knowledge on Buenos Aires. Thank you. Gráinne

    I had a lovely tour around the cemetery with our guide Loli, she was really knowledgeable about Argentinian history which really helped bring the place alive. It’s a beautiful area to visit but without her knowledgeable explanations I would have got far less out of it. Great guide, awesome afternoon. Well worth it!

    Had a good day touring around recoleta but it did get very warm , plenty of things to see , some very good buildings here , Eva perones grave was worth seeing if only to take a picture of , Enjoyed a nice cold beer after this tour in one of the many bars around the site outside .
