Like La Boca, the central barrio of San Telmo is one of Buenos Aires’ tango haunts. Formerly an up-market residential area, the area’s crumbling mansions and atmosphere of faded glory form the perfect backdrop for the city’s artists and ...

I really enjoyed our tour guide Elizabeth- very passionate and informative with historical facts. Got to know more in depth information about the tango styles and famous tango shows and malingo. Stopped at a famous cafe Tortoni, old Viejo Almacen, San Telmo market etc. Wonderful time!

This bike tour of San Telmo and La Boca was everything I had hoped it to be ... a casual cycle through two of Buenos Aires most popular neighbourhoods. As it turned out, I was the only one on the tour so had the guide to myself. The guide was on time and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour.

The bike ride is definitely not for beginners as you will be cycling on uneven, pebbly roads and among traffic most of the time. It was a pity that my friend had to back out from the tour as she is only a beginner cyclist. Nonetheless, I continued with a solo tour with my guide Sebestian and got to zip through an ecological reserve, parks, the port area, La Boca (keep ur cameras) and San Telmo. Exhilarating and a great work out ;)

We are so glad we did the bike tour in Buenos Aires. What a great way to see the city. You must be at least a little athletic because you do have to maneuver pretty well through traffic and a climb up at the end. It was a beautiful day and our guide was excellent. We kind of felt like locals riding our bikes through the city. At the end of our bike ride we ate pizza outdoors in a San Telmo square very close to the drop off spot and we got to see some tango while we ate. Will definitely do it again if I go back to Buenos Aires and explore the other neighborhoods.

I wasn't all that impressed with this tour mainly because it was me and some other people that the guide had the previous day. He catered to what they wanted to see with the tour which was everything I did on my own the day before. It was supposed to be something entirely different than what was delivered. Because they were going to La Boca and I had been there the day before, he cut me loose at the San Telmo market. This particular guide was speed walking, so I'd be prepared to walk at a brisk pace. Otherwise it was informative enough for me.
