Then we hopped into kayaks to reach the restaurant for our lunch. After a fabulous meal of parrillada (typical meats) we were back to our kayaks... More

Laura and Frederico were our guides, and they were extremely pleasant.with a gentle sense of humor. They arrived promptly at the hotel, and helped us all with the bikes.The route was very easy, and they made sure we... More

We take bike tours in most cities we visit. Miguel, our guide with Urban, is getting his Masters in Argentinian and South American History. He made each neighborhood come alive, and we got a great feel for why the important buildings and plazas are where they are and how they are related. We took both the South and North Tours... More

Thanks to our guide Miguel we had a great tour in South BA! He told us a lot about city and history. During the tour you will see many different areas of the city, which is really great. We also loved to bike in the city (like home in Amsterdam), bike paths are good and safe.

There's a lot of biking and physical activity, including kayaking. The tour guide was excellent, giving us tips and advice for future visits and was very patient and easy going. It's a nice tour but needs to be done in a sunny day, cuz after the kayaking we got really cold and wet. Overall and amazing experience, super recommended!

We did the full day tour, and loved it. We'd done a 'normal' half day bus tour the day before, which meant we covered some of the same places on the bike tour, but this was on a totally different level - more personalised, and in addition to seeing the main sites, we got to cycle down the small side...

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
