What to expect
  • Meet your guide in a central location and go through a short safety demonstration before you receive your bike. Strap on your helmet, jump on your comfortable beach cruiser and hit the road for your leisurely ride through some of Buenos Aires' most interesting neighborhoods. Start with a cycle around San Telmo, known for its colonial architecture and Dorrego Square, the historic heart of the neighborhood. While there, scope out some spontaneous tango performances while observing typical neighborhood life in San Telmo's bars, restaurants, and cafes. Pedal over to La Boca, a colorful neighborhood with a European atmosphere that has persevered since Italian immigrants first settled here decades ago. Stop to see local artists selling their work on the Caminito, the pedestrian-only street lined with colorful buildings. Continue to Puerto Madero, the city's newest neighborhood whose old docks have been converted into trendy restaurants, lofts, and offices. Then, make for Buenos Aires Ecological Reserve, an 865-acre (350-hectare) natural space along the Rio de la Plata. Cruise through this serene oasis in one of the city's most bustling downtown areas, and follow your guide's lead in looking for swans and egrets. Finally, ride over to Plaza de Mayo, the political center of Buenos Aires, and snap some photos of Casa Rosada, the Argentine president's pink-walled office. After four hours of touring on your bike, accompanied by thoughtful commentary from your guide, you'll end up in Plaza San Martin.

One of the Best Ways to see BA Up Close
Jan 2020
Our small group tour (4 riders plus the guide) had a glorious summer day's ride on the South Side. Its one of the best ways to see BA (or any city) up close. Our guide (apologies for not recalling her name) was really personable and knowledgeable so it was a fine learning experience as well. The bikes were in good condition and the riding fairly easy, mostly flat and only a limited amount in traffic (BA has lots of bike lanes). We are in our 60's, not athletic, and it was fun and easy.

Brilliant city!
Jan 2020 • Family
Great afternoon trip. La Boca district was my favourite part, so colourful and lively. Streets filled with artists, dancers, food and music. Cycling was easy and safe. Very efficient way to see a lot of areas quickly. Our tour guide, Nestor was friendly, fun and knowledgeable. Worth doing!!

A great way to see San Telmo and La Boca
Nov 2018
So I will start with the positive: we had a friendly informative guide and were able to cover a lot of ground in a short time. I feel like I got a general appreciation for BA. The drawback is that you are weaving in and out of traffic, which was downright scary.

Beware! Rip off
We booked this trip only one day in advance... no one showed up! the travel agency was closed with a note on the door to wait which we did. No one answered our calls. No way to complain except give a bad review! Totally ripped off.

Dear Carol, We are really sorry about what happened. That Saturday was the only Saturday our office closed over the year and the guide who was meant to pick you up in the front door arrived late and could not find you to start the bike tour with the rest. We normally manage hundreds of bookings per month and as you can see in our Trip Advisor page we have very good reviews. Of course we will refund your service and invite you to email us so we can give you for free another activity in Argentina as a way to compensate our mistake. Again we are sorry for the inconvenience. Regards. Tangol Staff.
