    My wife and I enjoyed the southern tour a week after completing the northern tour. Diego was a wonderful guide. He took time to detail the history and background of the key stops throughout the southern part of the city. Cycling through the modern waterfront district of Puerto Madero, and the colonial buildings of San Telmo and La Boca was accelerating and interesting. Seeing the lush parklands of the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve, which runs along the Rio de la Plata, the grand Plaza de Mayo, and the La Boca community were thought provoking and scenic. Very friendly, relaxing and well paced.

    We went on afternoon Buenos Aires South Circuit tour with Cesar two days ago. Cesar is everything you want from a tour guide: he has excelent command of English language, he is knowledgeable and caring. Even though the traffic was heavy we felt very safe riding our bikes with Cesar. The total length was14 km. We defininetly recommend taking the South Circuit tour.
    We liked it so much that we went to the afternoon North Circuit tour yesterday with Gaston and Lean. Both guides were very good making sure that everybody was safe in busy traffic. Gaston has a combination of impeccable English and good knowledge.
    We found the South Circuit more intersting than the North.

    There is no better way to see the city of Buenos Aires than by bike. And there is no better group to take you on that experience than BA Bikes. The entire staff is super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to making your entire Buenos Aires experience one you will never forget. Our bike tour was led by Maria and BK, who kept us safe, comfortable and well informed. Maria’s love and knowledge of the city, its people and history translated across all languages. When we asked her about the Argentinian ‘mate’ tradition, she invited us after the tour to share a mate with her. She showed us how to prepare it and how to enjoy it amongst friends. Fede held the fort at the store with good music and was great at organizing the various tours. When my girlfriend and I were in a bind with a less than amenable Airbnb host, Fede allowed us to keep our luggage securely in their office the day following our bike tour while we roamed the city. Thank you Fede, Maria and BK for an unforgettable experience!

    We absolutely loved our tours with BA Bikes. We did both south and North with Nico and he was an excellent guide! I loved hearing the history of Argentina from a local and it was a lovely way to see the city. I totally recommend it!

    Did the Southern circuit with Fede and Cesar. I've previously toured BA by van, but seeing the city from a bike gave a totally different perspective. It was really cool to see how the neighborhoods connected and to explore some of the side streets. The guides did a good job of explaining the local history and made sure we were safe for any busy street crossings. A great way to spend an afternoon. Wish I was around longer to do the Northern Circuit as well

    We had a wonderful, exciting tour with the perfect Tourguide Cesar. He has huge knowledge of BsAs and its history and can tell so many stories you won’t find in a history book. I’ve been a couple of times to the city and had guided walking tours. This time I took part at the 4 hrs historic city bike tour. It is amazing how much more you can cover and how much more you feel being part of the city. Cesar made sure that we were always safe in the vast streets and choose as often as possible smaller streets and the bike lanes. We made stops at famous sites but also at smaller, touristically unknown spots, only local people would know. Cesar would tell us about the importance of these places to the porteños. It was a pleasure having him as a guide!
    He is fluent in English and also speaks German due to a semester he spent in Austria.

    A great way to see the city. The ride was pretty easy since the city is mostly flat, bike lanes are used when available. The stops are to a few of the must sees in the city. It was nice to learn about the history of the city

    If you are looking for a Bike tour, please look no further. These guys are THE BEST! BA bikes are super fun, reliable, kind, professional and dedicated to what they do. The tour was perfect from beginning to end. Fede our guide and BK our “bodyguard” were AMAZING! Safety was a priority for them. The route, sites and explanations were incredible. Dont’t miss it!

    My dad and I took this tour and were very satisfied. Our guide Nico learned us much about the history of south BA and Argentina. Would recommend you to do this tour on one of the first days of your travel to Buenos Aires. You get a very good understanding of the city, as well as great tips from the guides about restaurants and activities fir the rest of ur visit.

    By far the most comprehensive, informative and genuine bike tour I've ever done in a city.

    Federico and the team are sincere, genuine and truly warm and love their citye with a passion, but their care for their passengers is second to none.

    Genuinely felt like I was riding around the city with friends instead of tour guides.

    Cannot recommend this enough as a great way to see BA
