🖖🏼Hi there :) Doing fine? I'm Hanne, a half german and half guatemalan, who has been living 10+ years here in Buenos Aires and just loves to share all the goods about this beautiful city with anyone whos interested in it. My touring style is very relaxed, flexible, and always open to adapt if needed. I like walking around and entering hidden city pearls. Don't worry if your pace is a little slower, we´ll adjust on the go. What matters most to me is that you have a good time❣️ Best, Hanne

Hannelore was an awesome guide and I really enjoyed the tour with her! She had a ton of knowledge about the cemetery and shared some really interesting stories, pointing out many details I definitely would not have noticed otherwise. She was super friendly and communicative too. Highly recommend!

Die Tour über den Friedhof von Recoleta mit Hannelore hat Spaß gemacht und war sehr kurzweilig! Sie hat uns viele interessante Informationen und Geschichten rund um den Friedhof und einige Grabstätten gegeben. Die Zeit von 1,5 Stunden war genau richtig, um den Friedhof in Ruhe mit ihr zu erkunden!
