Did 11 km and it was a great way to see the city. Diego was a great guide - knowledgeable and good at keeping a challenging pace without going too fast. Would recommend this to anyone going to Buenos Aires.

This was a great introduction to the city. We were ready to stretch our legs after a long flight and this was perfect! Our guide followed our lead with regards to the pace of the run and we never felt pushed to run faster or slower. I recommend this for any runner!

We actually did this way back in 2010 after reading trip advisor reviews about it when we were in BA. We had never done a run/jog before but because it was so highly rated we thought we'd give it try. I have been meaning to review it since then as it has stuck in our memories as one of the... More

Great way of seeing the city, getting a workout, and not having to worry about getting lost! Diego made sure I didn't run into traffic, and provided an interesting route with various landmarks and sites. Very easy to book, and a unique experience to get one-on-one time with a knowledgable local.

A couple of weeks before I landed in B.A. I emailed URT and set-up a 18 km run for the day I was to arrive to give me an orientation of a city I had never been to and to stretch my legs after a long flight. Diego was quick to confirm a time and route and was very amenable... More

My first running tour and I have to say this is now my favorite way to tour a city! Diego was great to work with and accommodating with our schedule and needs. We had the most pleasant tour guide, Lucas who was pleasant, patient, and spoke good English. I am a slow runner and need to take occasional walk breaks... More

Loved the idea of running with Diego and was not disappointed. We managed 11km and saw some great sights of such a beautiful city. Such a good way to get some fun exercise in whilst getting the insights from a local. Definitely recommend!

I had a great time this past Saturday doing an Urban Running Tour of Recoleta and the Palermo Lakes. I hadn't run for a few months and I am very much out of shape but surprised myself by doing 8km! I would never had done that by myself. Diego is a great guide, very knowledgable and I learned a lot... More

When traveling my husband and I love to find places to run to become familiar with the city and take in the sights and sounds on foot. What a pleasant surprise it was to find a guided running tour. We were able to get in a great workout, a 10K, at our own pace and see so much if the... More

We had a fantastic time running with Diego around the Palermo Lakes and Recolta areas. We first booked a 10K run for Friday morning, but it rained really hard all night and into the morning. Diego called early in the morning offering to reschedule to the next day so that it would be more enjoyable. Later in the day we... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
