Very knowledgeable tour guide! The tour focuses primarily on a few prominent graves and historical items in the cemetery. I would highly recommend arriving at the cemetery an hour or two early to walk through and enjoy the architecture on your own, then supplement it with the tour.

Our tour guide Victoria was incredibly knowledgeable and took us on an amazing tour of the cemetery. Highly recommend the tour and highly recommend Victoria!

They were punctual in picking us up at the hotel, we had a lot of information from the guide when we did the tour. The places we visited were beautiful.

Good “menu” tour of the city. You hit all the major spots of Buenos Aires in about 5 hours and get an idea of what places you’d like to return to.

Victoria was outstanding. She was knowledgable, full of historic facts and urban legends. A real treat. She is the best!
