Soledad was extremely nice and was very informative. Highly recommended for anyone looking to learn about Buenos Aires from a local and not just a history book.
The tour guide was very informative. Asa there were only three of us in the tour it was like having a personal tour
Learned lots of interesting information we would have not gotten on our own.
Ater meeting up with our guide and his father who was also doing a tour, it was decided that we would do the different areas tour along with the Recolleta Cemetary and it was very good. M
Soledad was great and informative. We saw a lot but the tour needed one more hour as it was rushed. I couldn't photograph the cathedral and we really didn't even see it beyond the spot where San Martin's body lays at rest. But we learned and saw a lot. Good walking shoes a must.
This was wonderful. Our guide was so knowledgeable, entertaining and very very pleasant to walk with. He was well informed on old and new Lima and was fascinating to listen to. A great tour. Rhonda M
