Owner description: Experience more in less time! Buenos Aires is flat, filled with bike trails, and way too beautiful to experience behind a bus window, so experiencing the city by bike is the most practical option. Our guided tours are safe, cover the best parts of the city, 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 local refreshments (Yerba Mate). Don't just tour the city, become a part of it! 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!

The Ultimate City Tour was the best way to see the city! Our guide Bill was fantastic! He is fluent in English and Spanish, and he taught us so much about the history and culture of this amazing place. Some friends did the tour a few days earlier with another guide, Karri, and they said he was wonderful too, so you really can't go wrong. We were here for work and only had one day to sightsee, so this was the perfect way to do it. If you only do one tour while in Buenos Aires, do yourself a favor and make it this one. Muchisimas Gracias por un dia fabuloso!

We enjoyed our half-day bicycle tour of Buenos Aires. Although it was keyed to art and architecture, its principal value for us was that we got a good orientation to some parts of the city -- around Plaza de Mayo, Puerto Madero, San Telmo, and others in the center. Our guide, Karri, was hospitable and knowledgeable and was attentive to traffic conditions. We do think it was advantageous to do the tour on a Sunday. Might be more challenging on a weekday.

Our Theme Tours are only offered on weekends as they explore areas of the city that are otherwise congested during the busy work week. The Arts and ArchitecTour is definitely a great option to acquaint yourself with the city center concentrating on the theme of outstanding man-made constructions. Thank you so much for sharing, however we're curious how we could have made your experience excellent instead of just very good. We love hearing ways of improving!

My mom, sister and I did the Parks and Plaza tour and Hearts of the City tour and had a blast. The guides are knowledgable, kind and easy to get along with. BA is a fascinating city and bikes are the best way to see the city. The bikes are comfortable and the ride is not difficult for people who know how to ride a bike. The guides answered all our 'touristy' questions and provided excellent restaurant recommendations. Bottom line: do this tour!

I took the Recoleta Parks tour with my study abroad agency and loved it so much I took my family on the Heart of the City tour when they came to visit. Both times, the tour guides were fun, informed, relaxed, and really made the tours enjoyable. On the Heart of the City tour it was just us and the tour guides and we had a really great personalized experience. Its definitely the only way to see buenos aires. I took the tour buses before and they are a waste of time and money!

Thanks for the kind words! Yes, even though the bus tours aren't the best alternative to really get to know a city, they serve wonders for those not physically capable of riding a bicycle. However, those who are have no excuse! Biking Buenos Aires is, without a doubt, the best way to familiarize yourself with the city, something very important especially for students studying for an extended time.

We took the Heart of the City Tour. Our guide was Karri. It was raining but Karri provided us with rain ponchos and the option to stop any time we wanted to get out of the elements. Karri was enthusiastic and outgoing with a great sense of humor which made the trip even more fun. He was very knowledgeable about Buenos Aires and passionate about the culture. We learned some fascinating facts about the city's history. I wish we had more time to take the full city tour. I would do that if I ever get to come back. This was a great way to see parsvof the city close-up without fighting traffic or taking public transport. The isn't strenuous. I highly recommend this tour and this company.

That's too bad you caught a day in the rain as Buenos Aires typically has great weather. Every tour, our guides are equipped with a saddlebag full with goodies and supplies for just-in-case situations, one of those being rain ponchos and gloves. Thanks for sharing your experience, we are glad you had an amazing time even in unpleasant weather!
