2 days in a row and loved both days!

Day 2 for me. I rode the southern end of the city the day before this and had the wonderful Kari as our guide. She is so passionate about her job as a tour guide that it shows when she’s speaking about the wonderful places in Buenos Aires. Again the group was small, my bicycle worked and the weather was awesome. I will be back again and will book again!

I would rate this as a B. Bikes were ok but not great. Tour guide took us mostly on bike lanes through the city Its not terribly bike friendly yet . I felt like we quickly passed a LOT of interesting sites without stopping or discussion. There were only 4 of us in the group but the leader wasnt very aware when we tried to ask questions. We took two 15-20 minute rest breaks that werent really needed I feel the guide was just trying to use up time. We made about 4 or 5 stops, the longest was at the Recoleta Cemetery, which was very interesting and for which she was very knowledgeable.

Did the tour of north BsAs at the end of my holiday here and wish I had tried it earlier, so that I could have done another with them. Our guide, Gisela, was superb - taking us at a leisurely pace along safe cycle tracks and stopping regularly to point out and explain the many wonderful, often hidden, buildings, statues and monuments, along with their fascinating history. Stuff you would never find in the guide books. Will do the full tour next time.

Tour did a decent job hitting the highlights. We took mostly the same route there and back as opposed to seeing new things. In addition, we had one guide covering multiple languages as opposed to an english specific group, which resulted in wasted time as we sat there while he covered the other languages. Lastly, the bike was not that comfortable.
