“On the Marc(os)”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

My wife and I took the Recoleta and Palermo tour with Marcos today. Outstanding tour! Marcos has an extraordinary knowledge of Buenos Aires' history, and was adroit at mixing amusing anecdotes of the BA rich & famous with explanations of their historical significance. His English is perfect. When I asked how he has become such an excellent raconteur, Marcos said that he had taken a class in stand-up comedy to polish his speaking skills (!) Of course, the fact that he was a Psych student might have also helped ... :+>

Tour took just over 3.5 hours, and included a walk in the Rose Garden and a tour of the Recoleta Cemetery (a word of advice - there is more to see in the cemetery than just Evita's tomb). Bicycles are new and in excellent condition, with large comfortable seats. Single gear, so no need to be constantly switching gears. The run was generally flat, with the exception of one hill just before the cemetery, so not too painful for non-cyclists like me.

Fee was US$40 or 320 pesos.

We wholeheartedly recommend the tour, and Marcos as a guide.

“Lovely tour”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Great way to get to know the beautiful city of Tigre. Riding a bike, canoeing and walking. Ezequiel was great. He knows his country's history very well and was very kind.

“Best and fastest way to get to know the city”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Such a great way to get to know B.A. We took a tour of the South with Barbara and a tour of the North with Nico. Both were amazing. You get to see all the important things and get a sense of direction in this big city. Highly recommend. Thanks Nico and Barbara!

“Excellent way to get an informative overview of the city”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We had a great bike ride with Nico through the South of BA. He safely navigated us through the beautiful, important areas of BA. His friendly demeanor and obvious excitement around educating us about his city was a perfect compliment to an excellent ride on a beautiful day. Nico's english is fantastic as well. Thanks!

“Biking and Canoeing in Tigre”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We had an amazing day in Tigre with our guide Ezequiel from Bike Tours. The first part of the tour was biking in Tigre with lots of information about the history of the different places and buildings in Tigre. The second part was canoeing in the river channels of Tigre. There we got lots of information about the river and its ecological aspects from the canoeing-guide. It was beautiful to slide through the water without engine noise and watch the nature around us. Eze spoke English very well so that we could understand everything and he translated everything what the canoeing-guide told us. Eze was also very patient with our questions. We had a wonderful day and I recommend to do this tour to everyone who is visiting Buenos Aires and likes to spend a day outside of the city. I certainly would do it again!
