This ride is a great way to get acquainted with Buenos Aires. It has many miles of bike lanes making it safe to tour the city. Samuel was my tour guide who is very knowledgeable even though he is not from Argentina. I highly recommend taking this informative tour.

Sam was just fantastic! It was the best 4 hours I’ve spent! I learned so much about Argentina and it’s monuments that reflect this amazing country. Don’t hesitate just book this tour. The city is mainly flat so getting around on a bike is pretty darn easy!

Patrick was a wonderful guide and our tour was an excellent introduction to this interesting city. He highlighted a host of things which we plan to explore ourselves later on. Would thoroughly recommend.

Patrick was so knowledgeable with so much historical facts. I learned so much!! He was also so accommodating, patient and a good driver. I would highly recommend this tour.

Nice guide who knew you well and tried very hard. Even let me try Mato in a private setting.
