My sister and I visited BA for the first time last week without really planning our trip. Luckily, we had the help of a few trusted locals to offer tips. There is so much to do in the city, however, one definitely needs to take a break from the hustle, bustle and scorching heat. And what better way to do so than with a Bike It tour to San Isidro and El Tigre? A quick phone call to the tour agency and a walk to Florida 999 and we were off on an adventure with our smart, witty and tattooed opera singer tour guide, Alvaro. Alvaro greeted us with perfect English, an endearing, "my life is a mess!" and sturdy bikes and helmets. We rode to the beautiful train station, which was built by the English per Alvaro, hopped on a train and rode a scenic 30 or so minutes to the outskirts of the city to embark on our bicycle adventure. A stop at the widest river in the world, an ecological park, San Isidro (with mate) and El Tigre (with Quilmes, gnocchi, and helado) made for a perfect day. Throughout our ride, Alvaro offered insight about the history, culture, and politics of his beloved country. We became fast friends and really enjoyed our day! Highly recommended tour and guide!
