The Recoleta Cemetery Tour Buenos Aires was a special experience! Nicolas is a wonderful person and gave us the opportunity to learn as much as we could. The weather almost from the beginning of the tour was rainy but he was positive to do the tour. The rain became very heavy and while he was soaking wet under the umbrella, he did not stop until it was no longer possible to proceed. However, we had the opportunity to have a coffee in the cafe that became the mysterious incident about which he will tell you the story (!) and he shared with us as much as he could about the Recoleta Cemetery... Thank you Nicolas!
We were on the 25th November at the recoleta tour and we're so lucky with our wreally great guide! Thank you very much for all the background information regarding the cemetery and all the funny and interesting stories behind the tombs. We couldn't been more happy with the whole tour and would definitely do it again. Really recommended! 🙏
Guía conocedor, muy comunicativo. El recorrido se hizo demasiado corto por lo agradable e interesante!
