Details of Bike Tour Buenos Aires - South

Our Bike Tour Buenos Aires South will begin at our offices in San Telmo, one of the oldest parts of the city which is known for its colonial architecture.

We’ll start off by heading over to Plaza Dorrego, a pretty square surrounded by cafés, bars and pubs with outdoor seating which gives the area a lively atmosphere, as well as traditional homes. The square hosts many music, street dancing and tango shows and is home to the Feria de San Telmo every Sunday, the streets packed with stalls selling antiques and other curious objects.

Our tour will continue on down to Parque Lezama, known for its rustic paths, ornate little pillars topped with flowers and viewpoints from where you could once see the river. The Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa de la Santísima Trinidad is also in Parque Lezama, an important church whose architecture reflects the orthodox style of Buenos Aires.

We’ll cycle on to the neighborhood of La Boca, very popular among tourists due to the array of brightly painted buildings and the cosmopolitan history of the area. The main street is Caminito which simply exudes Argentine culture, with the pedestrian area full of artists displaying their work.

Next, we’ll cross Calle Garibaldi, a road split by a train track. Just a few blocks along from here, we’ll be able to see some of this area’s real housing: houses built with sheets of metal and painted a myriad of different colours. We’ll also be able to see the Boca Juniors stadium.

Heading into the Barrio de Avellaneda, we’ll pass the oldest and most famous ferry bridge in Buenos Aires. Built in 1914 to support pedestrians, cars, trams and other vehicles, it is one of the 8 biggest ferry bridges in the world and is currently undergoing renovation works.

We’ll move on to the newest barrio in the city, Puerto Madero, which is also the most visited part of the city. The old docks have been converted into restaurants, lofts and offices with amazing views of the city and the Río de La Plata.

From there, we’ll head into the Reserva Ecológica de Buenos Aires which sits between the city and the river. This is one of the most popular parts of the tour, as we explore this green space which protects wildlife, the environment and native plantlife.

Last but not least, we’ll cycle over to the Plaza de Mayo, the political centre of the city since its very founding and where you’ll get to see the Casa Rosada (presidential mansion), the Cabildo, the Catedral Metropolitana and other political buildings.

We’ll then bring our tour to a close at the same place we started: our offices in San Telmo, just a short ride down the road from the Plaza de Mayo.

It was awesome to ride the bike around the city. Visiting all its tourist attractions + take great pictures. And the weather helped a lot, cause it was a beautiful and shiny sunny day. This tour was one of the best things I did during my stay in buenos aires. I really recommend it to everyone wanting to get to see a different face of the city!

My husband and I took two tours with Tangol, and we are so glad we did! Our first tour was the Buenos Aires Bike Tour through the Recoleta and Palmero Districts. Our Tangol guide was highly knowledgeable and really customized the tour to make sure we saw the things we hoped to see. We were able to get off our bikes at several points: to walk through the rose gardens (El Rosedal) in el Parque Tres de Febrero, to tour the Recoleta Cemetery, and to see the changing of the guards at the Islas Malvinas War Memorial, and more. Our guide continued our tour, which was in the morning, right up until the start of the afternoon tour. We definitely got our money's worth! Their staff was friendly, courtesy, and responsive - by phone and email. They played a big part of making our time in Argentina a great experience.

My friends and I had an excellent time. Marcos was a stellar guide, very knowledgable and friendly. We were fortunate enough to have a perfect day in which to cruise the streets. His sense of humour and strong grasp of English really made the difference.

10/09/15 -2pm Tour. We had a great time. The guide- Alex- adorable and knowledgeable and friendly. Spoke great English most of the ride and translated to Spanish for the others that didn't have as much understanding of English. Seeing the Ecological Reserve and Rio Plata was an unexpected treat. Please thank Alex for a great afternoon. Tim Wagoner and Julio Morales.
