Please read the following Terms and Conditions carefully before proceeding with your booking. These Terms and Conditions are subject to change without notice, from time to time in our sole discretion. Biking BA will endeavor to communicate the most updated Terms and Conditions to our clients when changes occur.
'Biking BA' shall mean Biking Buenos Aires. 'You’ or ‘passenger’ shall mean the person in whose name the booking is made and shall include the person or persons on whose behalf the same is made. 'Force Majeure' shall mean any event outside Biking BA's control, including but not limited to war and civil strife etc., which prevents the prompt performance of its obligations.
2. General Information
General information included in the website (www.bikingbuenosaires.com) is for help and guidance. The contract incorporating these conditions shall be governed by Argentine law and any matters arising out of it shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the Courts of Argentina, Ciudad Autonoma de Buenos Aires.
3.1 A regular group tour lasts between 3 - 7 hours. On the occasion that an attraction is closed or the group experiences an unforseen event (flat tire, protest, etc.) the tour may last more or less than the originally stated time. The routes are fixed; however, due to unexpected road closures, protests, traffic, etc., we sometimes have to find the next best alternate route. Only private tours are allowed to customize tours to their specifications so long as the tour doesn't exceed the indicated maximum time.
3.2 The minimum number of passengers to start any group tour is one. In the rare event that the passenger wants to join a different group tour than the one reserved, Biking BA will work with the passenger to make an alternative arrangement that best suits the situation.
3.3 There is no rescheduling for prepaid tours in the 24 hours before the tour starts. Also see point 11.1 & 11.2
3.4 If a passenger is absent or late, there is no refund or rescheduling of his/her tour without prior notice.
3.5 Private tours require at least 24 business hours to schedule or reschedule.
3.6 During high season, Biking BA reserves the right to introduce morning tours. Biking BA will notify passengers when such option is available but the schedule will be ultimately determined by Biking BA.
4. No Show and Late Arrival Policy
4.1 In any situation where the passenger(s) do not show up for their scheduled tour and they are the only passenger(s) in the tour, Biking BA reserves the right to cancel the tour after 20 minutes of waiting unless notification of late arrival has been made in advance. Once the tour has been cancelled, rescheduling of the next available tour will be made accordingly.
4.2 Tours start and end as scheduled by Biking BA. If a passenger arrives late, the tour time missed is not refundable nor can it be rescheduled.

Passenger is fully responsible for having all necessary valid travel documents, travel insurance and medical insurance. Any non-compliance and any resulting damages are the sole responsibility of the passenger.
