Full description
In a group of no more than 6 people and the expertise of a local guide, get to know the lively city of Buenon Aires by bike. From the convenient meeting point, travel the urban terrain on a bike with gears and suspension for a comfortable ride. Take in the best historical sights and most notable areas of the sprawling city. The tour will visit the Plaza de Mayo, the most important historical site in Buenos Aries. From there venture onward to the newest area in the city, Puerto Madero. Cycle down to the old riverside at Costanera Sur and stop by La Boca where old traditions are very much alive. See the Boca Juniors Soccer Stadium, the open-door Calle Museo Caminito museum, and the beautiful grounds of Lezama Park.   Along the way, there will be time to experience a traditional mate tasting. Enjoy the national drink of Argentina — an infused caffeine drink originating from South America — in the company of locals. Spend around 30 minutes talking about the mate tradition and other topics, of course. This is an important part of social culture in Argentina, so feel free to ask questions and the friendly guide will share their local point of view. There is an additional option to enjoy a delicious sandwich at a traditional food truck and where you can feel like a real "porteño".

    Unforgettable experience! Special needs and physical limitations were taken into account. All in all a very feasible, very informative, comfortable bike tour along historically relevant sights. The guide's immense knowledge of the city's history makes the tour extremely interesting and exciting. A final exchange about politics and the country with mate drink in the park rounds off the tour wonderfully. The time flew by.
