🖖🏼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

Thanks for that awesome afternoon. We - 2 adults and 3 kids (4y, 7y, 11y) - took the (German) tour with Hanne. She brought the cemetery to live, kept the kids interested and delivered so much interesting information to put the bits and pieces we heard at other places into a coherent story. We can recommend Hanna without any doubt. You will enjoy your time! Best, Thomas

Hanne was a delightful tour guide and so full of energy and information! She showed us around all of Recoleta like it was her back yard. We were fortunate to be her only guests this day so she went out of her way to lead us to our next destination by underground. An added bonus to our tour. Thanks for everything Hanne!!!
