Between 1976 and 1983 Argentina had the last, and longest military dictatorship. Among other crimes, it will be remembered as the one that killed 30.000 people, most of them were made disappear. The Memory Park is a homage to those victims, whose names remain written in long walls surrounded by sculptures referring to state terrorism and to keep our memory open, refusing to forget our recent past. This new space of land is by the widest river on earth, Rio de la Plata, and this will be also a good occasion to learn about this " Sweet Sea", as it was called by the first Europeans who saw it.
Almost a decade ago, Fabian kickstarted his career as a tour guide after leaving a cushiony corporate role as an HR Manager. Since then, he has enjoyed spinning exciting stories to travelers and taking them through one of the most European cities of Latin America. Through his lens, you will discover the city that's home to the widest avenue, the widest river, and brimming with people who love football. Buenos Aires was a British colony for a little over a month, but it carries with it a hint of different cultures. "Argentineans are Italians who speak Spanish but they think they live in France!" Fabian laughs. Through his tours, you might hear him sing a tango (or humming to U2’s “With or Without You”), learn a couple of magic tricks (fun fact: he's an amateur magician!), and check out yerba mate, a super healthy herbal tea that's a local popularity. "Being a tour guide is a bit like a teacher, and I enjoy telling stories. Buenos Aires is full of stories, bizarre, strange, hard to believe stories," he says.

This review is for two tours that Fabian took us on today, Thursday 6 May. Those tours being Memory Park:30000 souls and Recoleta part 2:In quest of the big flower. Memory Park tour is quite an emotional tour and really does need to be told as Fabian expertly tells the story. Fabian installs a lot of heart felt emotion in to the extremely unfortunate happenings during the 1970s and 1980s in Argentina. Fabian carried out that tour with the utmost grace and sensitivity. Thank you Fabian. The second tour - Recoleta Part 2:In quest of the big flower was a great uplifting tour and an ideal tonic to lift the spirits after the Memory Park tour. It was a really enjoyable tour with some really uplifting moments. Thank you so very much for both tours Fabian. See you very soon. Don Berry.

Such a moving and thought-provoking tour, remembering the 30,000 people who were made to disappear by a brutal regime before Argentina became a democracy. Thank you to Fabian for his sensitive handling of this painful subject and for keeping this tragic part of his country's history alive.

A really moving tour, handled with great sensitivity by Fabian. Modern history that we should all be made aware of, and that gives cause for reflection in these times.
