Details

The tour starts in San Telmo, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, which is known for its preserved colonial architecture.


Then we visit Plaza Dorrego, known for its great sightseeing of Buenos Aires. Around it there are cafes, bars and pubs with their tables on the square and houses of antiques and crafts. The square has shows of musicians and street dance, including tango exhibitions and Sundays takes place the “Feria of San Telmo” where the streets are occupied by antiques`shop.


Our way follows the “Parque Lezama” that features rustic paths, fake cement logs, viewpoints where once we could see the river, stairways and semi-underground.


Another of the most important attractions of Parque Lezama is the Russian Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity Orthodox showing the style of the City of Buenos Aires in its principles.



Then we will go to the neighborhood of La Boca. This neighborhood is popular for its brightly painted buildings and the cosmopolitan history of it. Caminito is the main street and provides a great cultural expression and throughout the pedestrian we can also see local artists exhibiting their work.


Garibaldi Road will cross a street that is divided by a train track. Along three blocks, you can see the genuine building of the neighborhood with houses made of  metal and painted in multiple colors. Along with the entire group we can also see the Boca Juniors Stadium.


To continuo with the tour, we´ll go to the Barrio de Avellaneda and cross the oldest and most famous ferry bridge. It is a ferry bridge located in Buenos Aires, which was opened in 1914 and currently work is done to rehabilitate. It was created to transport pedestrians, cars, vehicles and trams. It is one of the last 8 transporter bridges left in the world.



The tour will continue for the newest neighborhood in the city which is Puerto Madero. It is the most visited by locals and tourists. His old Docks are converted into restaurants, lofts and offices category, with the best view of the city and the Rio de La Plata. From there, we will go to the Ecological Reserve, an area that lies between the city and the Rio de la Plata where nature and the environment is protected, and preserves the original flora of the pampas.


One of the most anticipated tours of the tour is the visit to Buenos Aires Ecological Reserve which is located on the east side of Puerto Madero neighborhood. His large green space within the City of Buenos Aires makes it a pleasure to enjoy walking along the coast of Rio de la Plata.



Finally, we will visit Plaza de Mayo that since the founding of Buenos Aires is the scene of all major political events in the country, there are Government House (Casa Rosada), the Cabildo, the Metropolitan Cathedral and the main public buildings .


The tour will end at the same meeting point.

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.
