I did the cementery tour with Marcos. His english was very good. The information and stories he told us about the people being burried there was very interesting. I was happy i did the tour with Marcos otherwise i just had to walk around without any information about the graves!

Marcos told us about some interesting stories of the Porteños society, that we would otherwise not have heard. He is very knowledgable, also about other things we asked. Highly recommended tour. His English is very good, too!
