    Do not waste your time. We booked an English-speaking tour - but, even as a native English speaker, I was unable to understand him - and we were not the only ones. The other native English speakers on the trip kept asking me if I knew what he had said.

    The tour says you will hit certain landmarks in approximately 3 to 3.5 hours. We did not hit a SINGLE one of the big attractions in the 3.5 hour period - we did not see Recoleta Cemetery, Casa Rosada, Buenos Aires Zoo, the Botanical Garden, or several other promised sites.

    The staff is also rude and unprofessional. I got a nasty email three days before my scheduled tour saying that I had missed the tour (they had the wrong date), and despite numerous requests for help with my helmet, the guide ignored me altogether.

    When I contacted the tour company to express my concerns, they made up a story about a conversation I allegedly had at the beginning of the tour, during which I said that I was "tired." This conversation never, ever happened.

    This was - by far - the worst experience we had in Buenos Aires and the worst experience I've ever had with a tour company on Viator.

    I am a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 12 and 14. 20 km ride over 3.5 hours was very enjoyable and we saw the city from a different perspective. Cycles were not perfect but very functional and well maintained. Very flat route so at an average speed of only about 6 kmh, it was not taxing at all. The guides did a good job stopping traffic and keeping us safe. We do this at every city we visit and it always rates highly in our memories.

    so good. The guide Barbara was terrific.

    We had fun on this tour and saw a lot of Buenos Aires, but with a small group of only 5 riders our guide still did not manage to keep the group together. Instead of waiting for everyone to cross busy streets together, she would cross on a green light and often leave 2 or 3 people who would get caught in a red light. At one point three of us lost her in the traffic and could not see which street she rode down. Although we were told we would be riding primarily in bike safe areas, for the last 20 or 25 minutes we were riding in serious rush hour traffic with cars, buses, taxis, without benefit of bike lanes. Some of the bike helmets were missing the adjustable pieces and could not be properly fitted. That said, we saw a lot and had interesting stops, but riding in very heavy traffic at the end of the day was dangerous.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour. Only one easy hill in the whole trip. We cycled with another couple and had a lady tour leader with a lad following us. It was a red hot day, but we went at a gentle pace with lots of stops at various points of interest. This is a great way to see many of the interesting sights of Buenos Aires. Most is on bike lanes, so don't worry about the traffic.

    There’s the sightseeing, which was wonderful, and then there was the challenge of riding a bicycle on narrow lanes with zooming traffic and bouncing on cobblestone roads in the old part of town. The memory will stick with you. Palermo and Recoleta have wide open spaces for easy riding, beautiful!

    Amazing! Such a fun ride to all parts of the city!

    Great way to see the city! The sites are amazing and our guide spoke english quite well!

    I was fortunate enough that it was just me, so was really able to go at my own pace. The guide was very informative and had a ton of knowledge on the history of Buenos Aires. Most of the tour stuck to a bike path, there were a few parts that would've been trickier for larger groups. I can definitely recommend this.

    Lots of traffic and rushed. Guide had a schedule to keep. Other tours provide small snack or drink other than water. I felt there could have been more talking by the guide and some less famous sites included. Guide was nice but never bothered to ask our names. Overpriced for a basic ride.
