Ride past the Buenos Aires port, one of South America’s busiest ports, where nearly 2,000 vessels arrive every year. Make your way to the Buenos Aires Ecological Reserve, an 865-acre nature reserve on the Rio de la Plata. Follow your guide through this tranquil piece of land amid the city’s bustling downtown districts, keeping your eyes open for wildlife like egrets and black-necked swans.
Then ride by Plaza de Mayo and stop for photos in front of Casa Rosada, the President of Argentina’s palatial office, famous for its pink exterior. Admire the other buildings that surround historic Plaza de Mayo, the center of Argentine politics.
Head into the neighborhood of San Telmo, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, known for its well-preserved colonial architecture. See its many attractions, including the Russian Orthodox Holy Trinity Church, San Telmo Market and Dorrego Square, the heart of San Telmo. Observe life in the square’s cafes, bars and shops, and watch for spontaneous tango performances – San Telmo is the center of tango in Buenos Aires.
Next, ride into La Boca, Buenos Aires’ most colorful neighborhood, where a European atmosphere has remained strong since the neighborhood was settled by Italian immigrants. The district is popular with visitors for its brightly painted buildings, especially along the Caminito – the neighborhood’s main (pedestrianized) drag where you can see local artists selling their work.
Throughout your tour, your entertaining and informative guide will regale you with fun facts about Buenos Aires’ rich history and provide commentary about the sites you’re passing. You’ll also break periodically to stretch your legs and take photos, ending your tour at Plaza San Martin.

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.

This was the perfect start to a stay in Buenos Aires. The guide Alex was relaxed and friendly and the route covered key points of interest to the south of the centre especially Boca. Much of the tour though is along pleasant cycle ways. Beware though that there is some riding through busy streets and this is not for the faint hearted. It is suitable for competent cyclists of all ages. I am 62 years old and only use bikes a couple of times a year, but it was definitely right for me.
