Recoleta was a pleasant cultural shock... I was delighted to discover and bought a T-shirt from Hard Rock Cafe we chinese if we cannot avoid it, visit cemeteries only on that one day of all-souls day. It reminded me of the one I saw in Manila, that had street names!.
we really enjoyed our time with our knowledgeable guide. the stories about each location were very good.
fantastic tour and guide. spent several hours walking around the charming neighborhood and cemetery. Guide was very knowledgeable. tour was well worth it.
Very interesting this tour helped pull a lot of Argentine history together for us tour guide was helpful and had lots good information afternoon schedule is very hot in summer but we managed.
Soledad was a wonderful guide. Perfect English, and excellent knowledge of the history of the city and of the architecture we viewed. We even went to a local place for delicious empanadas after the tour -- someplace I would never have found on my own. Thanks for a great experience!
This was a very enjoyable tour. Carlos is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and full of ineresting cemetery stories. We had a great afternoon with him.
Brilliant tour with very knowledgable guide. You need to be reasonably fit as he sets a brisk walking pace and expects you to keep up. I highly recommend this tour especially the informative walk around the cemetery .
Insightful and overall superb! Carlos delivered an educational experience! The highlight of my BA visit!
The walking tours were great. I did the Best Of Buenos Aires and Recoleta tours with Carlos and he was stellar.
I learned so much about the history of this beautiful city and country and am so glad that I decided to do the walking tours. They are intimate and the guides are incredibly knowledgable and passionate.
I am from Canada and Carlos actually lived in my beautiful country for awhile so we had great chats along the way. And his English is better than mine! ;)
I would highly recommend doing at least one of these walking tours during your time in Buenos Aires. If you don't know about the history of Argentina it's a great crash course. I was left with a thirst to learn more.
Our guide was fun, informative and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour. Recoleta is a gem of history and architecture.
