Why walk when you can ride? Buenos Aires is big, flat, filled with bike trails, and way too beautiful to experience behind a bus window, so touring the city by bike is the best way too see more in less time. Our guided tours are safe, cover the best parts of the city, follow many of the newly constructed bike paths, and stop frequently allowing you freedom from the bike to explore on foot, take photos, eat delicious Asado (Bondiola, veggie options also available) and try traditional refreshments (Yerba mate). Visit our website to find out more about what we do, who we are, and why you should join us for an unforgettable day Biking Buenos Aires!

I signed up for the Ultimate City Bike tour as a way to learn more about the city and history of Buenos Aires. It was a great decision. Granted, we had pretty much perfect weather (~60-65F/15-18C and sunny), but I think even if the weather weren't great it would still have been a lot of fun. We had a group... More

Did the Ultimate BA Biking Tour with my wife and grown son. It was a perfect way to get to know the diverse attractions and history of the city in a short time. There is so much to see and learn and being on bikes makes the city so accessible that you really get the feel of the neighborhoods. The... More

I had the best time with Marcelo! It was just him and I on the tour and it was one of my favorite days. He was super knowledgeable about the history and all the sites and mostly just enjoyable to hang with. I would definitely recommend Biking Buenos Aires and Marcelo to everyone.

This was by far the top activity we did in BA. The staff was very nice and provided a great insight to the culture and history of the city. With the land being flat, the route is ideal for beginners and families. If you are in BA, this is a must!

What a beautiful and fun way to explore Los Bosques de Palermo y El Parque Rosedal! Our guide was so sweet and knew so much about the areas we explored. We all received authentic Spanish names before we left, shared yerba mate with the locals and received a special postre at the end! It was around 3 areas long, the... More

We had a fantastic day biking with Kaylee thru the streets of BA! We learned so much as well as enjoying the weather and the scenery. It was a great fun way to see the city through a different perspective. Kaylee was fun and very knowledgable. We visited about 5 sites and comfortably rode 17miles and found t believe it!!... More

My 13 year old and I did this tour with Rodrigo and Renzo and it was phenomenal. We learned so much and I was astounded with the guide's grasp on history and world affairs. Truly outstanding and exceeded my expectations.

I truly enjoyed seeing parts of the city I would not have explored. Beautiful day, fascinating city, and Rodrigo and Renzo (sorry if I spelt your names incorrectly) made it extra special with commentary on the history and evolution of the unique BA culture. Heart of the City was manageable even for those of us in our fifties, and the... More

Thank you BBA for a fantastic tour. We feel we saw the real Buenos Aries and learnt so much about the history of the Argentina. The areas we biked through were so diverse it's hard to believe we were just in a small part of the city The biking was easy and good to get some exercise as well as... More

Staying in San Telmo

Neighborhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
