Heart of the City Bike Tour
Back on your bikes, you seek a completely different world in the neighboring bubble of Puerto Madero. The obvious contrast is felt as you ride through the quiet, yet very modern streets in search of the 60 acre Ecological Reserve (closed Mondays). Now that our appetite has kicked in, you stop at an original Parrilla on the southern coast boardwalk to get a filling lunch at a local favorite barbecue food cart.
Full and satisfied, all roads lead to the “Heart of the City” in Plaza de Mayo where you will learn about why most Argentine historical events happened right here in this very spot. Once you’ve grasped the timeline of traumatic, powerful and sometimes uplifting events that happened right where you stand, feel free to wander off on foot to discover a bit more of the Plaza and its intriguing surroundings.
Our tour ends back at our meeting point in San Telmo where you recapture the day and recommend some BA tips. Lasting approximately 5 hours, you follow many bike trails and stop around 10 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.

A great way to see some great sights in BA. About 80 percent of the ride is on dedicated bike lanes. Bikes are good and terrain is flat. Our tour guide Santiago was very friendly and knowledgeable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour with Kaylee and Pedro! They were also amazingly flexible, agreeing to wait for us for over a half hour as we were unavoidably delayed...Kaylee is very knowledgable about Argentinian history and gave us a lot of information about the various sites we visited. We stopped for a yummy lunch at a local food truck - delicious! Kaylee also followed up by sending us various articles of interest, as well as local restaurant recommendations. As Kaylee is from California, her English was impeccable. Overall, we all had a WONDERFUL time. The ONLY negative is that the condition of the bikes, on the whole, was not great - particularly the brakes...Nevertheless, we all returned safely after riding around Buenos Aires for the day!!
Fabulous tour!!! Rodrigo was incredible, so pleasant and knowledgeable. The perfect way to visit B.A. and absorb the soul and passion. Easy ride good for everyone, they gave us also water and ponchos for the rain.
Amazing! Rodrigo was warm and funny, and very informative. His English was excellent, and he answered every question as if he had never heard it before, which is a great talent! The bike ride was flat, but far enough to feel like I had gotten a little exercise, and the lunch from the food truck was my best meal in Buenos Aires!
