The 9:00 start time was perfect as the traffic was not so heavy. We left the office of the company following our guide Augustina. The first stop was to make sure our bikes suited our needs and they fit fine. Of course we went to the cemetery of Evita, saw the giant flower and rambled through several nice neighborhoods. Although... More

Really great way of seeing BA on a bamboo bike. We had an excellent guide, who navigated us very well through the busy roads of BA.

My wife and I decided to step out of the box and do something different in touring Buenos Aires. Even though we had not biked in years, we decided to do the full day tour. Tour guide Alexandra was great and enjoyed doing tours. We felt very comfortable with her as we started out on the biking tour. We soon... More

Really enjoyed Anna's guidance in maneuvering through the busy streets of BA. Sometimes had to concentrate too much on not hitting pedestrians but thoroughly enjoyed seeing the barrios from a ground level perspective. Was with a large group up but we all made it through safe and sound.

We booked half day private biking Tour. My husband and I were guided by two professional guids. This bike Tour allows you to see much more of the city in half a day than any other way. It is well organised, traffic roads are avoided and you get lots of information. A really really exciting and original way to explore... More

Im an avid bike-fan, so I try to bike all the cities I go to. I was in a big group an found no problem renting the bikes. The mountain bikes are top-notch and worked perfectly for the whole time we rented them. I especially recommend biking around Palermo bosques and the natural reserve of Puerto Madero. One of the...

We had to reschedule our tour and the company was very understanding and considerate in placing us on another tour. The tour itself was great with stops at the Ecological Reserve, a mate ceremony, and views of the Rio Plata river which is the widest river in the world. We rode through San Telmo, La Boca, and the financial district,... More

My husband and I had a great day exploring all of Buenos Aires major sites during this 7 hour tour with Urban Biking. Our guide Federico took us at our leisure around Buenos Aires, mainly using bike trails and we learned a lot from him as he is very knowledgeable! Best way to visit such an amazing city!!

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
