Full description
Lasting approximately 7 hours, you'll follow many bike trails and stop around 15 times to drink and learn about Yerba Mate, take photos, eat delicious asado and enjoy a fun, creative and informative tour led by expert bilingual guides.  Meeting in historic San Telmo (Peru 988), the tour begins with a thorough orientation, introducing you to the city, your bicycle and each other. Heading south, you'll pedal through the backstreets of one of the oldest barrios in Buenos Aires, towards Parque Lezama, the border of La Boca and San Telmo. Looping around La Boca you'll see elaborate urban art, the famous Bombonera stadium and the birthplace of the  Tango dance in colorful Caminito. You then have time to explore on foot this vibrant port that once greeted millions of immigrants at the turn of the 20th century. Back on the bikes, and you'll head to the more tranquil and modern area of Puerto Madero, in search of the 60 acre ecological reservation hidden in the back. You'll have worked up an appetite by now, and will stop at the original parrilla on the Costanera Sur boardwalk to get a taste of local Asado Argentino. Take advantage of the plentiful salad bar, build your own sandwich with your choice of pork, chicken, or chorizo (egg/cheese option for vegetarians). Buen Provecho! Full and satisfied, it’s time to cruise along the docks towards the main transportation hub of Buenos Aires known as Retiro. You'll reach the privileged neighborhood of Recoleta, which is as far north as you'll go before turning back south, not before entering the famous cemetery in search of Evita's final resting place. Cycling back through Micro Centro, all roads lead to the “Heart of the City” in the Plaza de Mayo where you'll learn why most Argentine historical events occurred in this very spot.  Find out about the Casa Rosada, Cabildo, the famous cathedral and then you’re free to discover more of the Plaza and it’s intriguing surroundings. The tour brakes back at the meeting point in San Telmo (Peru 988).

    Great tour crisscross BA

    Our tour guide Marianella was absolutely fantastic. On this full-day tour, she showed and explained everything that BA had to offer. Including how to prepare mate tea originally and mix a cola branca mix. Very great and highly recommended. It is run in small groups with a maximum of 5 cyclists. A great way to explore the city and learn about real life in BA.
