A MUST DO IN BUENOS AIRES

I had the best 5 hours with Pato riding our bikes all over Recoleta to many of the gorgeous parks, statues, Recoleta cemetery & much more! We had mate tea in the Rose garden, such a wonderful treat with Pato. This bike tour I can highly recommend for almost anyone of any level. I will never forget this amazing afternoon in Buenos Aires, thank you Pato!!

Great way to see the city!

We had so much fun exploring Buenos Aires by bike with Jackson! He was a great guide, and he was very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend!

Great way to experience BA

As a family with 2 teenagers, we made a lovely bike tour through the Northern part of BA. With nice customized bikes, provided with water and lock, we drove safely over bike lanes, with our local English speaking guide Debi, who gave a real personal touch to the tour, including a Mate ritual with lovely medialunas (pastry)

Great tours

Jackson and Pablo escorted us on two bike tours. I must say I though parks better than central but no reflection on our guides. A great way to see a beautiful city with outstanding commentary from our guides and a full run down on old and recent history and recent Argentinian “issues”. These guys made our trip to BA outstanding so thank you once again.

Excellent Guide; Great Way to See BA

I can't recommend this tour or this company enough! Our guide Pablo was knowledgeable, friendly and full of really interesting and entertaining information and anecdotes. Even my 18 year old nephew was keen to hear what Pablo had to tell us and that is not always the case where tours are concerned! We visited several plazas and the Recoleta Cemetery. The cemetery now charges for entrance (new since Covid) and they don't take cash. A really nice touch was Pablo took us to a park and we had matte - the traditional Argentinian drink. This was our last full day in the country and we'd stayed in a homestay as well as hotels and been cafes and restaurants - this was our first opportunity to try the famous matte! Pablo showed us how to make it and drink it. The bikes are safe and well maintained and helmets provided. The tour is not terribly strenuous. There are a couple of inclines but they are not steep and they are not long. BA is actually quite safe to cycle round as there are plenty of bike lanes as well as space. Hugo - who I communicated with to book the tour - was responsive in his emails and was kind enough to refund us part of the cost as we were not able to have a meal during our trip - a consequence of the tour taking place during national Census Day when everything was totally shut down. If you have the opportunity to do this tour, you will not be disappointed!
