I did both the full day bike tour of BA as well as the bike and kayak tour to Tigre. Both were enjoyable and educational, no to mention great exercise. I had the same guide for both tours - she was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. And fun to be with, which was important given that we spent two days together. BA... More

It was a very excited trip to Tigre with a great guide that has a lot of good information. The mountain bike is very good. It offers also a tipical Argentinian assado after a kayak ride. I would recommend that :)

Great day today with Marianela. We opted for the whole day tour, which was a brilliant experience. We went on the open top tour bus yesterday and the bus was no where near as good as today's tour. I'd highly recommend this session. It's not too strenuous - just watch out for the cobbled streets! We used the bamboo bikes,... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
