What to expect
Meet your local guide in San Telmo, where you will receive your bike after going through a short safety briefing and demonstration. Strap on your helmet, jump on your comfortable beach cruiser and hit the road for your leisurely ride through some of Buenos Aires' most interesting neighborhoods. Start with a cycle through Puerto Madero, the city's newest neighborhood whose old docks have been transformed into chic restaurants, lofts and offices. Then, cruise through Recoleta, a tiny district of the city well-known for its French-style architecture and sizable green spaces. Follow your guide to Recoleta Cemetery, where many iconic Argentinians, like former first lady Eva Peron, are laid to rest. Ride through Barrio Parque, a residential area filled with mansions and large grassy parks and on to Barrio Norte on Santa Fe Avenue. Continue your Buenos Aires bike tour by pedaling toward Palermo, the largest neighborhood in the city, and on to Palermo Woods. See the Buenos Aires Zoo, the Galileo Galilei Planetarium, the Polo Fields and the Botanical Garden. Learn about the rich history of these two populous neighborhoods from your knowledgable, enthusiastic guide during frequent stops to snap photos and stretch your legs. After the opportunity to peek into what local life looks like in these residential districts, end your bike tour at the original start point approximately 3.5 hours later.

Disappointing city tour. Pleasant but really lacking.
Feb 2020 • Family
As others have commented: lots of riding but very little information or story. Thankfully, I like riding.

We went on this after seeing a similar group the day before being shown the Monument Tower. That org was booked up for our afternoon, and they mentioned Bicicletta Naranja as an alternative.

Bikes were ok. Guide was pleasant and might have been knowledgeable. We stopped about five times, maybe six in more than three hours. Most were for short, two minute, explanations. Two stops were much longer, where we'd be 'free' while guide looked after the bikes: 20 minutes in a park to view a rose garden. The other two customers went to see. We sat around. And 15 minutes to view the grave of Eva Peron. Other two had seen that, and were told they were 'free' to do as they liked.

It was all just a bit lame. Five or six tiny explanations of things seen. I'm no better aware of the story of Argentina or Buenos Aires or anything than I was before.

No doubt - judging by other management replies - this'll get a similar "we're sorry you feel that way..." but truth is this just not a good product/experience. Too lightweight, little substance. They really need to up their game.

And now I find out (on here), I've been massively overcharged too :-(

Dear traveler, We are truly sorry to read that you did not enjoy this experience. For the regular tours we have specific areas where the guide explains the most important and relevant points since we cannot guide on the way. This is because, as the regular tours and Buenos Aires is a very big city, it is not possible to stop at every highlight. We offer other tours where you can find different alternatives, in relation to the itinerary where the guides can provide more information. However, we are glad to know that you enjoyed the bike ride around the city as this is our purpose! We appreciate your comments as it helps us improve the quality of our services. Kind regards, Tangol Travel Agency

didn't take tour BUT...
Sep 2019
I booked a tour at the last minute (day before) hoping to squeeze in a sightseeing tour on my work trip after I arrived in BA and before my meetings started the following day. Unfortunately, immigration took so long that I didn't have time to get to my hotel and then also to the tour. I would have been 15 min late to the tour. I did not expect a refund as it was not their fault but they kindly and surprisingly gave me one - shows they are an honorable company and I hope to join them in the future if my work or personal travels bring me back to BA. thank you kindly!

Bicycle ride
Sep 2019 • Friends
We had a good tour of the bicycle paths and parks of Buenos Aires. There was a guide in the front and one at the back trying to keep us safe in the traffic. Unfortunately there was no guiding while cycling and stops were mostly in nice parks. We cycled for 3.5 hours and did cover a lot of ground but if you are looking for lots of information this is not the best tour. If you are looking to have an afternoon ride through Buenos Aires often on bike paths then go for it.

Dear Traveler, Thanks for sharing with us your comments! We are sorry to hear that the tour didn’t meet your expectations. Guides cannot speak while riding bicycles as they must be aware of traffic, vehicles, streets, etc. We have different stops where the tour guide explains highlights. We hope you will understand that it is for the safety of our passengers and tour guide. We are glad, though, that you have enjoyed the tour! Thank you for your review, it always helps us to improve our services. Best regards,

Great way to see Buenos Aires
Sep 2019 • Couples
We did a 3 hour afternoon cycle tour and were lucky with just three of us in the group. Being a Sunday meant there was far less traffic and we were also lucky to have a clear sunny day. Easy flat cycling and a great way to see the major landmarks. Would highly recommended.

Best way to see BA!
Knowing how big of a city Buenos Aires is and having limited time, this really made our trip. We lucked out with Néstor being our tour guide. He’s very knowledgeable and personable as well. Rita was helpful as well. If you’re looking for a great way to see the sights and get some exercise, this is for you.

Great exercise and a wonderful way to see parts of Buenos Aires. You do need to be careful about traffic, especially the buses and taxis.
