“Best day ever while traveling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I did this with our 9 year old daughter ( she is a good biker). We agree that this was an exceptional day and a great value. We did both the bike and canoe. Out guide was a University student and even lived for a year in the US. I learned more about Argentina, its people and its politics than I ever imagined.

I mean it when I say this was the best day ever. We travel quite often and generally do adventurous things but this topped them all.

“Get off your feet and blisters for the day and bike it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012 via mobile

Best experience of our trip in BA. Awesome way to get out of the city and off our blistered feet!! The staff was incredible and shared thier love of Tigre and the city with us. Supporting grass roots small business while travelling is a responsible and sustainable way to travel and made paying the 48USD worth it! It was so great to meet new people, pedal and see the sights! We felt so welcome and at home with the guide who went out of his way to treat us like honoured guests of his city. Thank you bike it and Martin the guide!

“Really personalized trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

We arranged our day long bike trip via email. They were very prompt and helpful in their responses. Once we arrived, we confirmed since it was a really hot day. We met Will, filling in for the other guides who had all gone to the beach for the weekend. Will made sure we were comfortable on our bikes, and with the route. We biked all over Buenos Aires, seeing monuments, bridges, art work, parks, restaurants, all accompanied by Will's easygoing commentary on the history and political developments in Buenos Aires. Really fascinating. Since it was just the two of us, we proceeded at our own pace. We most enjoyed the ride through the Botanical Gardens and Puerto Madera. These are areas we would never have gone to on our own.

Will made several stops for breaks, for lunch and refreshments, and always in the shade as it was really hot. We had a great bondiola on the waterfront, cold mate at Plaza de Mayo, and an alfajor to end the trip.

We saw another bike tour of at least 20 people, clustered around one guide and really felt lucky to be on our specialized tour. These guys clearly love what they do, and they want to share Buenos Aires with you. Lots of fun, and I always felt safe, even in traffic. Thanks, Will.

“Outstanding day on bikes and trains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

We enjoyed a brilliant day out with Luciana. The gentle pace of the biking, the thoughtfully arranged stops for sightseeing and refreshment, the care with which we were looked after on the bikes and on the trains ~ all this made for a peffect and slightly different day in Buenos Aires and out towards Tigre and the delta islands. Recommended without reservation.
