My wife and I had a wonderful bike tour with our guide, Verena. We did the Recoleta and Palermo bike tour with her after doing the other half day city highlights bike tour with her on the prior day. We really enjoyed biking with and learning so much from Verena and we enjoyed the Alfajores and coffee at the local coffee shop she took us to close to the parks. Biking was a unique way to see the city and travel from site to site. Definitely beats riding in a bus or car. We highly recommend both bike tours!

Great Bike Tour. Great way to see the finer points of Buenos Aires. He explained so much and knew the history. Left on time and with the bike lanes it was very safe
We went to the rose garden. Beautiful. Do the Recoleta and Palermo tour.

The tour was a very easy bike tour. Pablo was a great guide and showed us some very interesting sites, and told us a lot about the country, city and neighborhoods. Despite that one of the bikes got a flat tyre, he managed to fix it and we could continue withut much of a delay. However, i Think the tour could have been even more interesting if we had entered the neigborhoods a bit more. Now we biked quite a lot on bike lanes along larger roads

well , I was in Bounces Aries with my girlfriend and my dental partner for 3 days. The bike tour was one of the activates that we did there and in fact was one of the best . All the credit goes to the Tour girl who guided us throughout the day, her name is Mariana Vega and she is one of the best tour guides I have ever seen. The city is amazing and the tour is a great type of workout as well, beside the positive vibes and the kindness of Mariana that makes the day and the time totally worth it . must be done activity .

Great tour with Pablo around north area of the city. Met at San Martin statue and had tour over north of the city . Really good way to view sights.
Went inside the Retiro train terminal, saw English tower and the Malvinas war memorial opposite.
Visited parks in Palermo and ended with a tour of Recoleta.
Nice way to see the city. Used bike lanes most of the time.
Had 2 guides : Pablo and his assistant who helped to stop the traffic to guide us more safely about the city.
Not too physically challenging but you need to have a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy the ride
