      Awesome bike tour
      If you are strapped for time to explore BA, this is the best thing to. We saw so much in one day and learned a lot about the history. And of course this had a lot to do with our passionate, professional guide Michelle. The conversations had, covered many topics whilst also having a laugh and insight to a beautiful city and her people. What was supposed to be a 4hr tour turned to 5hrs because we all lost track of time which is a testament to Michelle's charm and professionalism. Highly recommended!

      MUST DO TOUR - THANK YOU NACHO!
      Nacho is JUST AMAZING! He was an exceptional guide on our recent bike tour in Buenos Aires, demonstrating not only extensive knowledge but also a genuinely warm and welcoming human!! His enthusiasm for Buenos Aires was infectious, making every landmark and hidden gem come alive with stories and insights that you won't find in any guidebook. Nacho's made the tour feel more like exploring the city with a savvy friend, and put a lot of effort to ensure we are safe. This is a MUST DO if you are in buenos Aires! Nacho we love you! - Your Canadian friends :)

      Excellent bike tour, highly recommend
      Great tour. Excellent way to cover big area in the city. Bike paths and the odd busy street. Not good for 75+ age with up and down on curbs etc. Great tour, highly recommend to see city, puerto madero, la boca and case rosada etc om way back. 4 hours with lunch break around 3.30 pm. Perfect choice

      The bike tour was a great way to get around and see some different things in the city. Viry did a great job, you could really tell she enjoys the city and interacting with guests.

      Excellent tour with Michelle
      Our guide Michelle was awesome! The day of our tour was a bit rainy but she kept a positive attitude and made sure everyone was having a good time. We learned a lot about Argentina and saw a bunch of cool spots that we returned to after the tour. Michelle also had great recommendations for restaurants and other sights to see while in town.

      Enjoyable and informative sightseeing tour by bike
      Daniel was a great tour guide, pretty fluent in English and very knowledgeable about the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Eight of us met at the St Martin statue in walking distance from our hotel in Recoleta. After a short introduction and fitting helmets and bikes we rode slowly to various sites and stops to get more information from our guide (and his co-worker). The bicycles were basic city bikes with comfortable saddles. The guided ride felt totally safe (even for people who have not ridden a bicycle for 20y) and for the more sportive riders a bit underwhelming. Highly recommended tour. Duration approx 3+ hours.

      Unexpectedly enlightening for a Bike Tour, really!!!
      This was one of the BEST experiences I have had on my trip in BA, and probably one of the cheapest. I did not just have fun riding a bike through the city and many of its important and interesting spots, but thanks to my guide KEVIN, I learned so many interesting things about this beautiful city and its past and present history. That's why I feel I got an awesome deal, I have a lot of interesting information to share with family and friends when I get home, it goes to show you, sometimes we really don't know where we are standing!!!!! Thank you KEVIN (Guide) and Vanessa??(co-guest) it was a wonderful afternoon... now I'm off to try the best pizza in town, another one of Kevin's info tidbits....

      Easy bike ride to places you need to see
      I arrived in Buenos Aires, not really knowing much about the city. And getting on a bicycle with a knowledgeable guide, turned out to be a great decision to understand at least one portion of the city. This was a small group ride with non-electric bicycles. Very gentle hills, so no problem peddling. The group seem to stay together pretty well with very different levels of conditioning. The guide was young enthusiastic Argentinian, who had good depth of information about historical monuments in the city and some nice anecdotes to share.

      A Good View of BA
      The bike trip was good and informative. Our guide gave both a base history of the city and its monuments as well as her own experiences. The route was about 9 miles. There were some roads where traffic came very near - it was not for a novice cyclist.

    Ignacio was very knowledgeable and revealed some cool historical facts. The pace was slow and easy for all to keep up, about 5 mph. Safety was always on his mind. We did a total of about 8 miles with many, many stops.

    Allen was great. His stories were informative and amusing. The bike riding was fun. If you are nervous about riding in traffic it might be a bit unnerving. No instruction was given but the pace was accomodating. There were five people in our group. The only negative was the online information said lunch was provided but it wasn’t. No bigee.

    We're glad you enjoyed our bike tour! While riding in traffic can be unnerving for some, we aim to accommodate varying comfort levels. Apologies for the discrepancy regarding lunch, but our regular tours don´t include lunch. Maybe they got confused in their search with the private tours we also offer, that include lunch! Kind regards.

    Alex was incredible. So much history, stories, and adventure. The. You’re brought us to places we may not have gone. It was fantastic. The ride was pretty easy…only one slight hill, the rest flat. I’d recommend it for sure!

    This was a good tour on a comfortable bike. We ended up having a private tour, and our guide was knowledgeable about local monuments and neighborhoods. We enjoyed getting an overview of these neighborhoods and the tour encouraged us to use bikes more to get around Buenos Aires. Recommended.
