A single language per tour

Tours are guided in just 1 language so you don’t spend time hearing something you don´t understand.

Tasting Stop​s

We’ll do 2 stops, to try the most popular things in Argentina. On one side mate, it’s an infusion with hot water you drink from a cup through a metal straw. (Yes, we know that looks weird or illegal, but it’s just like tea lol) Then we’ll have lunch at a traditional food truck, where you could enjoyed some orginal sandwiches that locals usually eat. Make the most of your time asking everything you want to know at this long stops.

Cementerio de Recoleta:

It’s the oldest cemetery in Buenos Aires, and one of the most famous and fancy cemetery around the world. Each piece of land was sell to a rich family in Argentina to build there impressive mausoleums. To have a grave there gave to the families “status“, and they competed to each other about who has the most luxurious one. You’ll have around 30 minutes to walk around this memorable place. *Recoleta Cemetery ticket included.

San Telmo is one of the oldest areas in Buenos Aires just a few blocks away from Plaza de Mayo. The barrio keeps the spirit of the origins of the city with some original architecture and the cobblestones on the streets. Nowadays is a really popular area full of bars, restaurants and night clubs but also is a traditional place for antique shops.

Plaza de Mayo:

Plaza de Mayo is a city square and the place where Buenos Aires was founded, so it’s known like “the center” of the city. It’s the neurotic nerve of Argentina, it’s where people go to demonstrate or celebrate the important things that happen in our country. Around Plaza de Mayo are all the important buildings in the city like: government house, national bank, economy ministry, cathedral of BA, etc.

This sculpture was donated by Eduardo Catalano to the city in the year 2002. The sculpture is located in a park at Recoleta neighborhood and next to the “Universidad de Derecho” (law university), so there is full of students during the year, and of course it’s full of tourist taking pictures.

Puerto Madero:

Puerto Madero was the first port building in Buenos Aires city, it was a symbol of the rich country that used to be Argentina at the end of XIX century and the beginning of the last century. Just a few years after it was inaugurated, the port area was abandon and stop to work like a port, then at the beginning of the 90’s started a new project in the area to design the newest barrio in the city.

The difficulty level for the Total BA bike tour is “medium”. The city of Buenos Aires is flat, so it does not require a lot of physical effort, but this is a full day bike tour. We pedal around 30 km, so if you are not used to riding a bicycle, we recommend you do one of our half-day bike tours.

The approximate lenght of the Total BA city tour by bike is around 4 hours. So, 99% of the the tours end around 6:30 p.m. The duration of the bike tour is not exact since it will depend on several factors such as: traffic, the pace of the group, if we need to do a quick fix to a bicycle, change an inner tube, etc.

The tour is guided in only 1 language, so you don’t waste time hearing a language you don’t understand or listening twice to similar questions or information.

La Boca has a bad reputation, but the tourist areas of La Boca are usually covered and it’s generally safe.
