Your tour will start with some safety instructions for the ride, then put your helmet on and explore the city.

Stop at the Lezama Park and talk about the first foundation of Buenos Aires, immigration and the history of Tango. Then, go down through La Boca's limit, where you will stop to stare at La Bombonera, one of the hearts of the area and symbol of the local passion for football.

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!

Grasiella was amazing! She showed us how to make Empanadas followed by explaining the wine region! I particularly loved the tour around Soho! Her knowledge of the area was incredible! Loved every single minute.

Obscenely good value for the price shown. Great content from Luke the guide who really knows his onions. Palermo’s a great neighbourhood to get familiar with and this is the way to do it. Thanks Luke!

Juan and Daniel were really great. I can not recommend them enough. The tour is a perfect length and a great easy way to learn about the city.
