Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the

Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll

Hi Aireen! We run the tour around the Recoleta area. We don't pick up people. And it's free of charge. We only work for the tips :-) . The tour lasts between 1:30 and 2 hours.
