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!

We arrived in San Telmo for what we thought was going to be an all-day tour, but due to a last minute emergency with a tour guide we were left guideless and tourless. HOWEVER, founder Will was very responsive when we called and gave us a menu of options-refund, half-day tour, or reschedule. We picked the half-day option, killed some time by walking around the San Telmo Sunday market (highly recommend) and were soon greeted by Will himself. Although Will could have been annoyed for having to give us a tour on his Sunday, he was quite the opposite. Genuinely apologetic for causing us any inconvenience, and thrilled to share his insight on a city he has truly fallen in love with. It was also great to hear about the history of the company. The tour was great in its own right. We got several history lessons on how the city was founded, the different barrios, biked though San Telmo, Boca, and Puerto Madero. Drank Mate, ate some of the largest sandwiches ever, and met some very cool people. I highly recommend any tour you have time for, and do do it at the beginning of your trip, as it allows you a good overview. Thanks again Will.

This is my first time to BA, and as a solo traveller I wanted to spend my 2 weeks really getting a feel for the city and the Porteno lifestyle.
I thought a bicycle tour was a great, active, and fun idea to get an overall orientation to the city and its barrios, to see some of the landmarks and help plan my stay.
Initially I was unsure whether 7 hours on a bike, fighting and dodging BA’s crazy traffic, was going to be a bit much.
What I found was that the use of numerous bike paths throughout this remarkably flat city and the regular stops made 7 hours very manageable and relaxing.
The meeting location was initially hard to find being a little obscure with no signage. I was welcomed by Kat the tour guide and introduced to the bikes and the 3 other group members, then encouraged to take them for a test ride up the street to ensure everyone was comfortable and make any adjustments to seat heights, tyre pressure etc. After a quick safety briefing and discussion on what to expect the group was off.
Kat was warm, friendly, approachable and professional. She has a great knowledge of the city and its history, and guided us effortlessly through the numerous areas, streets and paths. At the regular stops along the way, I really enjoyed the entertaining and informative back stories behind some of the monuments, parks and points of interest.

Overall highly recommended experience, and a true highlight of my trip.

Thank you for sharing this with us! Kat is extremely knowledgable and an absolute delight to spend the day with. Making sure that everyone is comfortable with their bikes before starting the tour is very important to us. We try to prepare all of our guests the best way possible to set the expectations for the day and give a good overview of what's included. Come back to visit us soon!

This is a great way to start your journey into the big city of BA. The 7 hour bike trip with lunch at a traditional food joint (yummy!!!) was totally worth the time and money we paid for it. We got to cover a lot of ground, stop at any place to take pictures we wanted (hey, you´ve got to give a tourist what he/she wants). Good biking paths and sights not to be missed. Will happily recommend this to all coming to BA for the first time and need to get their bearings on the city.

Really enjoyed our full day, seven hour, cycle ride around the city with informative and helpful guides. One thing to note that the saddles aren't the most comfortable especially if you are doing the full day tour as we did.

Thank you for providing us with your honest opinion! We are appreciative of all feedback, positive and negative. We have currently replaced the seats on all of our bikes with worn out seats. As we get many guests riding with us day in and out, our fleet gets plenty of different riders which can take a toll on them. We appreciate you letting us know about this and have solved the issue. Comfy seats are a must for a 7 hour tour! Either way, we're really glad you had an overall good time and sharing your experience with us. Take care!

fantastic sightseeing, great historical context as well as art/architecture, and tonnes of fun! surprisingly safe (doesn't seem like it at first in such a busy city). guide Ben (English) was great, lots of local tips also and can't rate this enough! Did the half day tour - just enough riding and sightseeing for one day.

Thanks for taking the time to review our services! We strive really hard to provide a fun and safe experience with everyone! Even though you chose to do a regular sightseeing tour of the south city, we always try to add to the experience by explaining other aspects of the city's beauty through architecture and urban art (our two theme tours offered on Sundays). We hope you can recommend us to your friends and family! saludos
