Tigre Tour

Our guide Enzo was great. The tigre tour was challenging but very much worth it. The river was interesting and the BBQ was great.

We did the 9am South Tour but sadly it was plagued by the bikes having worn through tires and a few frame cracks. We got about 800m when our guide had a puncture because the tyre casing was worn out on his rear wheel (thats bad maintenance - not an accident). He unfortunately tore the only spare tube trying to... More

We took the south tour - saw Centro, San Telmo, La Boca, Caminito. We chose this rather than the north tour because we felt the north tour area is very safe and walkable, whereas stretches of the south tour such as to and through La Boca were less so. This was an ideal way to see these interesting areas. The... More

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.

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.
