Why walk when you can ride? Buenos Aires is big, flat, filled with bike trails, and way too beautiful to experience behind a bus window, so touring the city by bike is the best way too see more in less time. Our guided tours are safe, cover the best parts of the city, follow many of the newly constructed bike paths, and stop frequently allowing you freedom from the bike to explore on foot, take photos, eat delicious Asado (Bondiola, veggie options also available) and try traditional refreshments (Yerba mate). Visit our website to find out more about what we do, who we are, and why you should join us for an unforgettable day Biking Buenos Aires!

I think this is good news! Buenos Aires can be visited riding a bike without paying for it. Authorities are boosting the activity enlarging bike trails all over the city and offering "rental" in several sites (check map on the web) without paying any fee. Using the system avaiable for locals and tourists you just go to one of the... More

A great way to see the city. Took the Heart of the City tour, which covered good ground. Buenos Aires is pretty flat, which made it fairly easy to get around. We did ride in traffic occasionally, but it was very manageable. Our guide, Raymond, was excellent. Knowledgeable, entertaining, and kept a good pace. Definitely recommend it.

We did the Heart of the City tour during our brief stopover in BA. We only had limited time so I booked it as a private tour which was so handy to have as an option as I had my heart set on doing this tour. It was such a fun way to see the city. Had plenty of stops... More

On our second morning in BA we decided to do a bike tour. We hurried to BBA HQ and found the staff really helpful to get us in Palermo with just 45 min left before the start of the tour. We did the North City tour with Raymond which is a very enthusiastic story teller. At every statue or monument... More

Santi was a fantastic guide. The tour could not have been better. The biking was relatively easy, we saw the whole city and learned a wealth of information as well.

Staying in San Telmo

Neighborhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
