    Ride was mostly along trails which felt safe and well planned. Our guide was engaged and had shared her knowledge and some history of Buenos Aires. A great way to start your visit to the city to get your bearings and learn some important info (like don’t visit Boca in the evenings). The ride through the preserve was dusty and “meh” as not much in the way of wildlife you can see.

    Barbie was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable and passionate about buenos aires. She took care of our safety. Great value for money. Highly recommended.

    It was dangerous. We were weaving in and out of very heavy rush hour traffic, and our bikes broke down along the way, although the guide was able to fix them up pretty quick. I'd still recommend this trip but I'd advise doing it during a time of day when the roads and sidewalks are less crowded.

    Although the tour was quite interesting, it did have some major problems. First, the English-speaking guide
    did not speak loudly enough to be heard above the surrounding noises. Secondly, the bike route was quite
    dangerous at times between the traffic and construction.I would recommend the tour, but ONLY if the participants
    are comfortable riding on rough streets in a great deal of traffic.

    Great value. The 3 hour tour was relaxed and covered some of the main tourist spots plus the eco park which was a first for me. Great tour guide plus I was the only participant so went at my pace. Flat roads and no hills. A couple of difficult roads with unfriendly traffic. Bike are a simple fixed wheel city type bike with basket and comfortable padded seat. Helmet provided.

    Highly recommended! We are two 70 year olds who have never biked in traffic so we were a little apprehensive about this trip but it was a highlight of our time in the city. A wonderful variety of stops and we learnt so much about the history of the south.

    What a fantastic tour! Our bike tour was the highlight of our period in BA, such a great experience! Very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide, he gave us a real feel of a local. If you are in BA and would like to have a proper local experience you should definitely go on this tour! Highly recommend it!

    Bike ride gives you a very different perspective than a tour bus. We thoroughly enjoyed the bike ride tour. Much more verbal explanation of area and you can stop and explore, too. My husband and I were the only ones on the tour but the guide still took us everywhere on the tour. The ride was on level ground and very easy to do.

    Very fun time and a great way to see BA and get in some exercise as well! I hadn't rode a bike in maybe 20 plus years, but it was the best and the group of guides were some nice guy's! I love BA and the great people and this tour as well! Fun times!
