A Terrific Tour

Despite awful heat, we had a wonderful tour, due in large part to our great guide, Sol Cardenas. He's a young guy who combines thorough knowledge, with great friendliness and a sense of humor. Very engaging and fun. We saw parts of the city, and learned things about it's past and present that we never would have without Sol.

Five Stars!!

This guy is absolutely the best! An impressive historian while biking Buenos Aires!! An experience worth doing and learning so much from another perspective ;-). We did it at the end of our Anniversary trip and it was an excellent way to conclude and say "until later" to Argentina. Loved it!!!

Fun Cycle Ride Day

Debi is a really happy, bubbly, energetic person and knows everything. She loves architecture, art, and historic areas of BA. And especially Debi knows how to have fun... Our ride on that day was met with huge storms and we still tried to cycle around until the winds became impossible. That was exciting enough, however not a worry as we learnt how to Tango for some of the day instead. It was a very funny day. Highly recommended.

An awesome, all-day bike tour!

Last month, I booked the Ultimate Bike Tour with Biking Buenos Aires. The tour was a great time! Check-in at their building was easy and the two staff working were friendly. Before picking a bike and heading out, my guide, Debi, gave a short tour of the beautiful building the tour company is working out of. I also got to meet the house cat! Debi took me around to various parts of the city that included San Telmo, La Boca, and Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur. During the trip, we took time to admire lots of street art, learn how to tango, prepare, enjoy & share mate, eat an amazing sandwich from a local vendor along the Rio Darsena Sur, and check out a beautiful pedestrian bridge crossing the river. It was a long, but fun tour! I enjoy taking bike tours in every city I visit, and this one is definitely one of my most memorable ones! Looking forward to my next time in BA!

Wonderful day in Buenos Aires by bike!

Today my kids (14 and 16) and I went on an all day bike tour and it was FANTASTIC!! Jackson, our guide, was perfect - friendly, told lots of stories about the history of Buenos Aires, kept a good pace, made sure we were all safe, and was fun to chat with. We had 7 hours of activity, fresh air, and getting to know the city. I highly recommend this tour - and Jackson! Thanks for a great day!

Fantastic introduction to the city with Debi!

My wife and I had a fantastic experience riding with Debi 2 weeks ago which served as such a great introduction to the city! The pace of it flowed really well with a mix of shorter and longer rides and allowed us to settle in and enjoy the experience of biking in the city, in parks and through streets along with everyday thoroughfares while enjoying the architecture, street art and city life. Along with the history, culture and getting to see so many sites, it's genuinely fun navigating the city without the worry of having to stop and check your maps so you can take things in more casually. It ended up being really lovely and what we enjoyed most with Debi was that it felt very personal and custom tailored rather than just a set of standard, stock information or facts. Genuinely felt more like enjoying a day with a friend who was a local showing you around the city more than a tour. Thanks to BikingBA!

Best way to see Buenos Aires!

Absolutely the best part of our Buenos Aires trip! Our guide, Sol, was great and really knows the city. It rained most of the day and that did not diminish the experience at all. Buenos Aires is such a huge city that this is the best way to get an overview of the place. The bikes were comfortable, the route was easy and we all had a blast!

Good Bike Tour

Very enjoyable bike tour. There was 6 in my tour group with 2 guides (Pato and Ricky). Pato guided with Ricky ensuring our safety. Had an experience that is specially available from a bike tour. I highly recommend this experience in Buenos Aires

I would rate 10 stars if I could! Great day!

Ultimate way to see highlights of Buenos Aires with awesome local guides! Perfect day despite less than perfect weather! The guides were fantastic! Shared facts & stories with expertise & humor! Really personal, small group tour! Easy riding! Bikes enabled us to get to places quicker than by foot. Safe & fun! Perfect number of stops (including reset rooms breaks) . Lunch by the river at a great truck! I would rate 10 stars if I could! Great day!

Super way to see the city

I was the only rider who showed up for this trip, so I had a private tour. We got rained on, but this was OK as it made for good temperature riding conditions. We rode for about 25 KM or 15+ miles through many parts of Buenos Aires. My guide, Pablo, was great and observed all the traffic rules keeping both of us safe. Made many stops during nearly 7 hours of riding. I used a 3 speed bamboo frame bike, but I stayed in low gear most of the time. It was a great way to see the city.

A Fun and Alive Day

I had a great day bicycling around with Jackson. He was personable, caring, happy to personalize and adapt, and had lots of great stories to tell and information to share.

Great way to see Buenos Aries

We had a great day being led by Sol. Very interesting with unusual facts and political nuances. Everything we needed included even an ice cream as it was a hot day! Really cool bikes too!
