After meeting your guide in San Telmo, listen to a quick safety briefing before receiving your bike (a comfy beach cruiser) and helmet.
Begin with a cycle around San Telmo, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, known for its well-preserved colonial architecture. See its many attractions, including the Russian Orthodox Holy Trinity Church, San Telmo Market and Dorrego Square, the heart of San Telmo. Observe life in the square’s cafes, bars and shops, and watch for spontaneous tango performances – San Telmo is the center of tango in Buenos Aires.
Next, ride into La Boca, Buenos Aires’ most colorful neighborhood, where a European atmosphere has remained strong since the neighborhood was settled by Italian immigrants. The district is popular with visitors for its brightly painted buildings, especially along the Caminito – the neighborhood’s main (pedestrianized) drag where you can see local artists selling their work.
Then, head to the newest neighborhood in the city: Puerto Madero. Its old docks have been transformed into restaurants, lofts and offices, which boast incredible views of the city. From there, continue to the Ecological Reserve, a 865-acre nature reserve that lies between the city and the Rio de la Plata.
Finally, visit Plaza de Mayo, the scene of all major political events in the country since the founding of Buenos Aires. Take a look at the Government House (Casa Rosada), the Cabildo, the Metropolitan Cathedral and the main public buildings.
Throughout your tour, your entertaining and informative guide will regale you with fun facts about Buenos Aires’ rich history and provide commentary about the sites you’re passing. You’ll also break periodically to stretch your legs and take photos, ending your tour in Plaza San Martin.

Great value. The 3 hour tour was relaxed and covered some of the main tourist spots plus the eco park which was a first for me. Great tour guide plus I was the only participant so went at my pace. Flat roads and no hills. A couple of difficult roads with unfriendly traffic. Bike are a simple fixed wheel city type bike with basket and comfortable padded seat. Helmet provided.
Highly recommended! We are two 70 year olds who have never biked in traffic so we were a little apprehensive about this trip but it was a highlight of our time in the city. A wonderful variety of stops and we learnt so much about the history of the south.
What a fantastic tour! Our bike tour was the highlight of our period in BA, such a great experience! Very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide, he gave us a real feel of a local. If you are in BA and would like to have a proper local experience you should definitely go on this tour! Highly recommend it!
Bike ride gives you a very different perspective than a tour bus. We thoroughly enjoyed the bike ride tour. Much more verbal explanation of area and you can stop and explore, too. My husband and I were the only ones on the tour but the guide still took us everywhere on the tour. The ride was on level ground and very easy to do.
Very fun time and a great way to see BA and get in some exercise as well! I hadn't rode a bike in maybe 20 plus years, but it was the best and the group of guides were some nice guy's! I love BA and the great people and this tour as well! Fun times!
Loved this tour, was a bit worried about riding a bike in the Buenos Aires traffic but the guide controlled everything very well. A great way to see the city.
Definatly a great way to get introduced to the city and some exercise at the same time .
We loved this tour! A wonderful way to see La Boca, San Telmo, Puerto Madero, Costanera del Sur, and Plaza de Mayo. Our guide Valentina was super friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

Very enjoyable bike ride. Area is fairly flat so ride was very easy. Excellent tour guide. So much better than a bus tour.
The bike ride was something special and a lot of fun. The tour guide did a really good job at explaining historical aspects and monuments throughout BA! I hadn't rode a bike in 30 plus years, but the experience was the best and any one that does this tour should have a great time!
Really good tour. Great local guide, Leo, who had very good knowledge of the areas we visited. We covered approximately 15km in the four hours, the cycling was at a steady pace and as long as you keep up with the group the traffic isn't a problem. There is one short uphill section, other than that mainly flat with a few cobblestones! I found it a great way to see the areas, good if you're short on time as you can cover a greater distance more easily than on foot.
Leo, the tour guide, was very entertaining and keen to give us as many facts and figures and anecdotes as possible. Great tour ! Will totally recommend it to my friends.
this is a great way to see a new city. Lots of fun and very safe. Our tour guide Alex was very good.
Very enjoyable way to explore the city. Good way to learn more about specific areas. Guide was very knowledgeable with excellent English language skills and very good sense of humour. Very interesting tour.
A great, fun way to get to see some of this beautiful city and our guide had loads of information regarding the history of the area.
This bike tour was sensational. It was great to get in there amongst the real Buenos Aires under the guidance of a local. Our guide , whose name unfortunately escapes me right now, was interesting, knowledgeable and gave us useful tips on safety and places to go. We would definitely recommend this tour.
