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!

This was my absolute favorite tourist experience in Buenos Aires. The city is so expansive and beautiful, seeing it by bike is perfection. My guide, Katherina, was fantastic! I took a private city tour so I could focus on taking pictures and Katherina made the most of our time. She was really knowledgable about the city's history and architecture and i was glad to have someone there to tell me about it all. We had lunch at a great food truck by the eco reserve and Kat pointed out all the places I should visit based on my interests. This is definitely the way to see the city.

Biking through Buenos Aires is perfection! What a great phrase. Kat is a wonderful tour guide and really knows what to recommend based upon people's specific interests, especially if it's Tango related!

Thank you for the kind words. Come back soon to take advantage of your second tour discount to see other parts of the city on two wheels! Saludos..

Biking around Buenos Aires is a great way to quickly see many of the beautiful buildings and sites while immersing yourself in the rhythm of the city. We did the Architecture Tour with our extremely knowledgeable tour guide, Will. The bikes were thoughtfully outfitted with water bottles and gloves to prepare us for an enjoyable ride even in chilly weather. One of our favorite parts about the tour was Will, who discussed the origins of the buildings in such an enthusiastic and engaging way, throwing in intriguing political tidbits, and making history come to life for us. He also taught us how to make yerba mate, and we enjoyed the tea and cookies together as a group in a picturesque park under the sun. It was a very fun and memorable day. We highly recommend this!

Who knew politics would be such a big influence in the cities architecture! Will does a great job of making these connections and choosing the best lunch spot under the sun.

Thank you for sharing your memorable day with us. I hope you take your mate knowledge wherever you go!

We did the Parks tour with Will as our guide.

The city is totally flat and has dedicated bike lines so seeing BA by bike just makes sense! We found it to be a great easy ride, seeing lots of BA.

Will, our guide, did a fantastic job of putting Argentina's history into perspective for us and showing us the sights. We left feeling like we had a much better understanding of the city and where to keep exploring with our other days in town.

You are right! It makes a lot of sense to see the city by bike with all of the bike trails spreading throughout the city and how flat the terrain is. We are glad you came along and were able to get a good orientation to the city's neighborhoods and history.

Will and the team thank you for sharing your experience with us. Don't forget that you can see the other side of the city (Heart of the City) for half off! Cheers

We did the full day bike trip with Angie as our guide. We only booked it the day before and it turned out to be just us and Angie so our own personal tour!
From the start the day was well organised and fun. Arriving at their airy office to a cup of tea and an array of very comfy blue bikes. The tour was relaxed but full and detailed and you followed the up and downs of Argentine history in the places where it happened. Angie was great , friendly, enthusiastic, informative, fun and patient. Plenty of time for photos and exploring. Also a great lunch in a place you would otherwise not have found!
You get a great feel for the city , its orientation, history and emotions. Definitely recommend.
Angie also recommended Wes for Tango lessons so we booked a lesson with him and had a great hour and a half of getting a feel for the emotion and (very tricky technicalities) of the tango, if only we could stay for a whole course of lessons.....want to learn more! He website is tangoawareness.com.

That is so great that we were able to accommodate you last minute! Angie is a spectacular local guide who is super passionate about her city and all it has to offer. And of course, Wes has happy feet and a warm heart eager to show everybody the tricks to mastering Tango.

Thank you so much for your review. We hope to have you come back soon for more lessons and to check out all of the other tours we have to offer. Happy traveling!

A great time was had today with Ray Ray, Timo and Santiago. The weather was glorious, the group was fun and the guys were all super friendly and funny and accommodating.

I did the "five hour" Heart of the City tour, which ended up being closer to six. A decision was made to have lunch in La Boca, which Ray organised quickly and it ended up being fantastic.

Thanks for a fantastic day. It's such a great way to see the city, learning as you go along. Next time I'm in Buenos Aires I will definitely do another Biking Buenos Aires tour.

Sounds like an amazing day with some great people! We try to stay as flexible as possible with our tours so we are open to altering our itinerary accordingly, for instances like your impromptu asado lunch in La Boca.

Please feel free to email me personally at william@bikingbuenosaires.com if you feel like sending us some constructive feedback so the next time your in the city, we can make your experience that much better.
