Utterly excellent tour. We cannot stress too highly what a pleasurable experience it was. Our guide, Pablo, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We have been on tours in many places, and this tour beat them all.
Knowledgeable.. Passionate to share history and opinion.
The Recoleta walking tour was excellent, pablo was very knowledgable and spoke extremely good English. Made everyone feel welcome and was very good at answering our questions about Buenos Aires and Argentina. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone visiting Buenos Aires, a great way to see the city and learn about the history of Argentina. Thank you
Another very interesting tour. Thanks again to Pablo.
My tour guide was amazing - huge thank you to Pablo for telling me all about the surrounding buildings and landmarks. His attention to detail and knowledge of facts pertaining to each location that we stopped at was very nice. There weren't a lot of people which was also nice.
The tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging.
It was very informative and interesting. We were also very impressed that even though it was only the two of us the tour still went on. Pablo did a great job.
Pablo gave a great tour! He was very knowledgeable and told good stories about the history of the people and the place. He took time to answer questions, even staying later to start talking about the history of tango. We’ve done a lot of free tours and this one was one of the best!
We love the guide, he was very kind and informative. Was a great time !
We had a great guide but it took a bit too long before we arrived at the Cementario which was the main reason for taking part.
Pablo was a very well informed and friendly guide. I’d do another tour with him, if I had the time.
Difficult to hear. Try to avoid busy intersections where there is lots of traffic which is noisy. Great job keeping us cool, in the shade. Interesting walking route, appreciate seeing so much amazing architecture. Try to spend more time in the cemetery. And slow down a bit, less talking, slower walking. Thanks, enjoyed it.
Interesting, informative and fun
Pablo is very knowledgable very friendly and expresses himself well. It was a fun afternoon
Paulo was very informative and shared lots of interesting insights into Buenos Aires. The Recoleta Cemetery is definitely an eye-opener, especially with all the interesting history behind it.
