My husband and I took this tour and are so glad we did! Our Tangol guide was highly knowledgeable and really customized the tour to make sure we saw the things we hoped to see. We were able to get off our bikes at several points: to walk through the rose gardens (El Rosedal) in el Parque Tres de Febrero, to tour the Recoleta Cemetery, and to see the changing of the guards at the Islas Malvinas War Memorial, and more. Our guide continued our tour, which was in the morning, right up until the start of the afternoon tour. We definitely got our money's worth! Wear sunscreen and be prepared for some traffic at the beginning and end of the tour. The rest of the trip will be at a leisurely pace.
This is a great way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time. You should be an experienced bike rider as some of the ride is thru traffic, but most of it was on bike paths.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and the bike ride was a very casual ride. Only at one point was there a bit of a climb up a hill. I would recommend being somewhat confident on a bike. At certain points on the tour, we were off the bike paths and on the actual roadways. Having the ability to look around at the traffic while keeping your bike in a straight line improves your safety. The ride is all done in single file, but be careful when simply following the person in front of you at road intersections. A traffic light can change mid-group and you don't want to get stuck in the middle of moving traffic. (Basic common sense but worth noting)
We had a great time, and would recommend it to anyone wanting to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time.
Had a great time, hadn't been on a bike for 50+ years, the guide was very patient with both my husband and I and we got a wonderful tour of this part of the city.
Great tour! Saw a lot at a good pace. Mark was an excellent guide. The bike lanes are relatively new, so keep that in mind...
What a great way to explore the city! Our guide was very informative friendly and patience, thanks Barbara!
Excellent tour. The guide was very informative. I did this tour on a Sunday and as a result got to see a lot of markets. It also makes it easier to ride as less cars. The highlight was one of the last stops the Recoletas cemetery. Bikes are basic but the entire ride is on the flat so very easy.
What a great way to see the city! Our guides were perfect and knew their information very well. They took us at the perfect pace (not too fast, but not too slow) and we saw so many places that, on foot, we could not possibly have covered in 2 days. I couldn't recommend this trip enough.
This was fun! It is great introduction to this nice, rich and clean part of the BA. Wide strests with trees, rose gardens and history lesson of Argentina from our tour guide. Because it was Sunday we saw Zombie Parade for Haloween, bicycle festival and market with tango dancers in front of Recoleta.
Wonderful way to see the city. Very nice guide! I strongly recommend!
A great way to see BA a little off the beaten path and get some exercise at the same time. We took this in late fall so it was just the two of us and our guide.
The bikes were very comfortable and the guide very friendly taking us to interesting sites, all the time sharing information. Was great fun experiencing all kinds of bike routes and unique locations. We loved this flexible exploration. Thankyou,
Great tour. I missed the sunday because i got sick so i showed up the tuesday. They let me use my sunday voucher. Very nice people.
HIGHLY recommend this tour! Argentina Bike Tours runs the tour and if you book through their site, it's about half the price! Loved our guides! We liked the bike tour so much we ended up booking an extra one through the company itself. Whatever you do, don't book through viator, much more expensive and no real service.
