What You Can Expect
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.
If you can bike, don't hesitate!
It was such a fantastic way to see Buenos Aires. I only had the weekend there and if I hadn't taken the bike tour wouldn't have seen half the things I was able to see or learn so much about the city and the history of the place. Bernard was the perfect guide, fun and smart and very knowledgeable. Thank you - highly recommended.
