What You Can Expect

Buenos Aires Bike Tour: San Telmo and La Boca Districts

South District Tour

Meet your guide in a central location and go through a short safety demonstration before you receive your bike. Strap on your helmet, jump on your comfortable beach cruiser and hit the road for your leisurely ride through some of Buenos Aires' most interesting neighborhoods.

Start with a cycle around San Telmo, known for its colonial architecture and Dorrego Square, the historic heart of the neighborhood. While there, scope out some spontaneous tango performances while observing typical neighborhood life in San Telmo's bars, restaurants and cafes.

Pedal over to La Boca, a colorful neighborhood with a European atmosphere that has persevered since Italian immigrants first settled here decades ago. Stop to see local artists selling their work on the Caminito, the pedestrian-only street lined with colorful buildings.

Continue to Puerto Madero, the city's newest neighborhood whose old docks have been converted into trendy restaurants, lofts and offices. Then, make for Buenos Aires Ecological Reserve, a 865-acre (350-hectare) natural space along the Rio de la Plata. Cruise through this serene oasis in one of the city's most bustling downtown areas, and follow your guide's lead in looking for swans and egrets.

Finally, ride over to Plaza de Mayo, the political center of Buenos Aires, and snap some photos of Casa Rosada, the Argentine president's pink-walled office.

After four hours of touring on your bike, accompanied by thoughtful commentary from your guide, you'll end up in Plaza San Martin.

The bike ride was something special and a lot of fun. The tour guide did a really good job at explaining historical aspects and monuments throughout BA! I hadn't rode a bike in 30 plus years, but the experience was the best and any one that does this tour should have a great time!

Really good tour. Great local guide, Leo, who had very good knowledge of the areas we visited. We covered approximately 15km in the four hours, the cycling was at a steady pace and as long as you keep up with the group the traffic isn't a problem. There is one short uphill section, other than that mainly flat with a few cobblestones! I found it a great way to see the areas, good if you're short on time as you can cover a greater distance more easily than on foot.

A great, fun way to get to see some of this beautiful city and our guide had loads of information regarding the history of the area.

Tour was excellent! Such a fantastic way to see the city - more efficient than a walking tour but more fun than a bus, and allows you to really get into the communities rather than observing from a distance. Would highly recommend!
