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!

In my opinion buenos aires is the latest city I ll do biking. There is no respect for pedestrian an the dedicated ways are really a few. Pavements are unpracticable because always destroyed even in the center and there is a lot of pedestrian. Common commentary from argentinian about bicycles: que locos!

What a great way to not only see the landmarks of Buenos Aires, but also to learn some of the "behind the scenes" and less glamorous facts behind them. My tour guide Will did a great job of recounting the context of each place we visited, always providing historical relevance and a very savvy perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour,... More

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. There are definitely some less appealing facts about Argentina's history but nevertheless, interesting to know! Safe travels and come back again soon. More

My husband and I were in BA for a short time and wanted a fun way to see the city with narration, plus have exercise vs. Sitting on a bus. The city is flat so this is easy and we enjoyed it very much. I think this is the only way to see the city! Our guide was awesome!

Good choice! Biking around the city is a much better option than having a bus drive you around to drop you off here and there. Thank you for choosing us and we hope you come back again to see another side of the city with us. All the best! More

When you see BA on a guided bicycle ride, you have plenty of opportunities to get close to places and hear more about their history while getting a sense of the atmosphere in the city. Our guide was streetwise, handling the traffic with great ease, as well as very informative. The bicycles provided are of good quality as are the... More

My sister and I wanted to explore the city via bicycle and we were very happy with our 7-hour tour though BA! Our bikes were comfortable, hand a handy basket for storage and we also had cute helmets. Our guides Anne and Angeles were terrific! There were only 6 of us on our trip and we always felt safe riding... More

We found Biking BA through a recommendation from Parilla Food Tours (check out my review...another must do activity!) and I am so glad we found y'all! We did the Ultimate City Tour with Will. He was a fabulous guide with great knowledge of the city, history, culture, and people. A little tangental at times, but he made up for it... More

Ice cream is a great idea and we sometimes have a specific stop for that in the summertime. Thanks for the recommendation! You're right, Sundays are the best day for riding as the streets are rather empty and there just seems to be a different vibe about the city. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience... More

My husband and I are staying in Buenos Aires for 2 months.

"I feel like no matter how long you're here, a bike tour would be the perfect thing for you." We couldn't agree more with this!

This was a fantastic way to see the city. Rodrigo was our guide. He was a fountain of knowledge, and taught us so much about Argentinian history and culture. He took us to this amazing food cart for a scrumptious pork sandwich. The biking was fun, and not too challenging. We had just our family, so it was a very... More

My family and I did the whole day city tour of Buenos Aires with Rodrigo. He was incredibly knowledgeable, the biking was easy, yet energizing, and we were able to see far more than we would've otherwise! I highly recommend it!

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.
