We had a very special private trip with our guide Hernan. He made it very informative all the way to our destination with his passionate and friendly interaction. The experience at the wine farm was very interesting and the wine tasting great! The food at lunch was a real culinary journey and adds a lot of value to the tour ito substance. All the best with your project! Henk

This tour was well organised & it was really interesting to see another other area of BsAs. The snack in the beautiful restaurant was actually 3 large delicious Empanadas . We even had time to buy some lovely souvenirs . Romina was an excellent tour guide and supplied lots of information on the tour .

The guide, Sam, does his job very well. Riding a bike with him in the city is pretty easy, and most importantly, super safe! He knows much about the city and he is extremely professional while being very friendly. This was the best thing to do for exploring Buenos Aires!

The bus live locator needs to be improved but overall I liked it. If you are a first timer, this is the best way to go around and visit main places. Watch out for tree branches! Lol. Everyone was very helpful.

Gus was very informative and spoke English exceptionally well. The bikes were okay in quality but were in good working condition. I had an outstanding time and learned a lot about BA.
