Rebecca and I did both the north and south tours, subsequent days. Nikko did a great job leading us and sharing his passion for his country; his commentary was a highlight of the tour. The next day we road the south route; Milena and Leandro teamed up and did a great job sharing their city with us. We felt safe and comfortable both days. The tour guides were sensitive to traffic and safety at all time. I had a slight issue with the bicycle but Leandro fixed it right away. I felt this was a great way to see the city with people who know their way around. Gracias babikes!

We took at tour of the South Circuit with our guide Topo (Frédérique) on our first full day in Buenos Aires. This was a great way to get acquainted with the city see a bunch of different neighborhoods and learn a lot about Buenos Aires. We showed up at the shop and they were ready and waiting for us with the bikes. Then we set off on the tour. Our guide Topo was terrific!! He grew up there so he gave us great information from the vantage point of someone who lived there. It was a terrific way to see so much of the city. They were highly recommended to us from a friend who used them last year. We agree it was a terrific tour and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great way to see the city.

Do the bike tour on your first day to get a great overview of the city. Our original intent was to do only the morning tour of the south part of the city. We decided to do the entire day and are glad we did. Saulo, our morning guide was just fabulous. He is knowledgeable, entertaining, and gave excellent instructions on the bike, always signalling any turns or stops. Try to request him if you do the south tour. After getting lunch, we took the afternoon tour of the north part of the city with Milena. She is also very knowledgeable, and did a good job. The south part of the city is more interesting but by touring the north by bike also and having Milena explain the history, we did not need to return to those parts of the north in the following days and were able to focus on the parts we found most interesting on the bike tour.
The only caveat I would add is you must be comfortable riding in busy city traffic. Since we ride in Chicago a lot, it was not problem for us.

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.

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.

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

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!
