The tour lasts approximately 7 hours and follows Buenos Aires' bike trails. We stop around 15 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. Meeting every day at 10am in historic San Telmo (at the following address: Peru, 988) we begin our bike tour with a thorough orientation, introducing you to the city, your bicycle and each other. Lunch, water, snacks and use of a bicycle equipped with a bell and basket and a helmet are included. Pointing our front tire south, we pedal through the backstreets of one of the oldest barrios in Buenos Aires making our way towards Parque Lezama, the border of La Boca and San Telmo. After weaving your way around the cobblestone lanes of San Telmo, you will pass the colorfully painted houses of La Boca. Looping around La Boca we witness elaborate urban art, the famous Bombonera stadium and the birthplace of Tango in colorful Caminito. You then have time to explore on foot this vibrant port that once greeted millions of immigrants in the turn of the 20th century. Back on our bikes, we glide along the modern waterfront of Puerto Madero. As you navigate your way to a completely different world in the neighboring bubble of Puerto Madero and you ride through the quiet, yet very modern streets in search of the 60 acre Ecological Reserve, the contrast becomes very noticeable. Once our appetite has kicked in, we stop at the original Parrilla on the Costanera Sur boardwalk to get a taste of a local Argentinian asado. Taking advantage of the plentiful salad bar, build your own sandwich with your choice of pork, chicken, chorizo or egg and cheese options for vegetarians. Full and satisfied, it's time to cruise along the docks towards the main transportation hub of Buenos Aires known as Retiro. The privileged neighborhood of Recoleta is as far north as we get before we turn back south, but first we stop and enter the famous cemetery in search of Evita's final resting place. Making our way back through the Microcentro, all roads lead to the "Heart of the City" in the Plaza de Mayo where you will learn about why most Argentine historical events occurred in this very spot. We familiarize ourselves with the Casa Rosada, Cabildo, the famous Cathedral and then you are free to discover more of the Plaza and it's intriguing surroundings. Our tour ends back at our meeting point in San Telmo where we recapture the day and suggest some BA must do's.
