I was taken on a great tour of the south of Buenos Aires as well as the Ecological reserve. My guide was knowledgeable and friendly and I really enjoyed her anecdotal info on the people and culture of the city.

<it is a great way to experience a lot of important sites throughout the city but due to time restraints we were not able to experience them thoroughly. <overall the bikes worked well and everybody seemed to have very much enjoyed the experience.

Miguel took me on a great solo tour of the Southern part of the city. He's a knowledgable historian and lends a really personal touch to the tour. I ask a lot of questions, so we shared a mate and talked about the city in a tremendous amount of detail. The guided tour helped me understand the city enough to... More

I liked the tour, but it was deceptively hard, due to the cobblestones and heat and humidity. Still much much better than riding in a bus. Just accept that you are going to sweat, a lot. Afterwards you will have earned your drinks or whatever else calls you in the city.

This guided tour is a great way to see the city. Federico is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide and provides excellent insight into the history of various districts. We took the South tour and really enjoyed it.

I did the El Tigre tour in early December. I was the only guest with two guides (one a trainee). We started off with a train ride about one-third the way to El Tigre. Then onto the bikes and a nice trip through the upscale residential areas with a couple of stops at historic sites and local landmarks. In El... More

Our group were all from the U.S., and it seemed like we all had a good time. Our guide, Miguel, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He spoke very good English, and showed a good understanding of local history. The tour was not physically demanding, and there were numerous breaks along the way. It was my first time on a bamboo...

I and a colleague spent a marvelous Saturday afternoon tour round BA on bamboo bikes (they also have regular bikes). In my travels I have found this a prefect way to see the city on the first day - and our guide Miguel was friendly and knowledgeable about everywhere we visited. Personally I would recommend the southern tour because that... More

This is the way to see Buenos Aires: take a walking tour one day and an Urban Biking tour the next day. These guys were all pro and friendly. I was anxious about riding in unfamiliar traffic, but Enzo, our guide, was a good leader, explained everything, and was super careful. Turns out, I felt more comfortable biking than walking....

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.
