My name is Pablo, I am an official local tour guide who enjoy creating walking experiences with a personal touch. I have been lucky to guide a variety of interesting institutions in the city like the oldest Church in Buenos Aires; the French Embassy, the Carlos Gardel´s House Museum, different temples in Palermo district at night, and other areas in the city and outside. Always happy to walk around and share the details waiting for being discovered.

Tour description

An experience to enjoy the silence and feel a little lost in the vastness. We will meet at the main gate of the Chacarita Cemetery (approx: Guzmán Av. 680, neo-classical facade, stairs) and explore its streets on foot in search of mausoleums of great architectural design, learning about the changes of this necropolis and its relationship with the history of the City. We will visit mythical characters that rest here, between legends and myths, from popular saints to tango masters and payadores. Forgotten characters, difficult recesses, we will feel lost but the stories will guide us ...

Pablo fue un guia muy amable, a pesar de que fui la unica inscrita para la fecha, se ofreció a hacer el tour conmigo de todas formas. La información que me entregó fue muy interesante y completa. Además, tuvo la buena voluntad de guiarme hacia lugares específicos de mi interés que no estaban originalmente en el itinerario de su tour. Lo recomiendo mucho. Gracias Pablo!

Todo excelente con Pablo. Era solamente yo, asi que tecnicamente fue un tour privado. Se nota que Pablo disfruta y tiene gran conocimiento de los diferentes personajes y sus historias. Lo recomiendo.

Hola, desde un inicio, inclusive antes del viaje, Pablo se contactó y estuvo siempre pendiente de nosotros con lo del horario y lugar. El recorrido y explicaciones fueron muy interesantes y conocimos mucho más del cementerio de lo que íbamos a visitar. Excelente gurú, muy atento y agradable trato. Gracias Pablo

Me pareció un excelente tour, Pablo sabe mucho y se tomó la paciencia de responder todas mis dudas (soy terriblemente curiosa 😂). Llevo casi un año recorriendo Argentina y el cementerio de La Chacarita ha sido uno de los lugares que más me ha impresionado, yo lo preferiría incluso más que ir al de Recoleta, este cementerio tiene conceptos único.
