My wife and I signed up for the 3 day bike trip several months before we arrived. At the time, we were the only one's signed up for that date. Ana told us she would put it on the calendar and others might sign up to join us and if they didn't we would have a private trip. I was... More

We had a great say out from Quito with the Flying Dutchman and a like minded group. The weather at Cotopaxi was bright and clear. The day started on time and the organisation was efficient to get us out of town in land cruisers and up the volcano. The bikes were well used but all serviced and functional. The brakes... More

We did a 4 day all mountain tour with Mateo. First one day near Quito, then one day of rest and then Cotopaxi-Quilotoa-Chimborazo. The trip was amazing! Mateo is an excellent guide, he has very good quality bikes and he clearly knows what he is doing. There's definetly enough challenge even for more experienced riders if that's what you are... More

I did the one day tour to Cotopaxi, and it was such a great trip. Our guides were Felipe and Gabriel and they were both wonderful. I was worried about getting tired at 15,000 feet because I am not a mountain biker, but it was not a problem. I would go another trip in a heart beat! Don't miss out... More

Brilliant day. such stunning landscape and great biking. Level depends on who is in your group but very flexible for all abilities so those who are a little less confident can take their time and those who are well practiced can have a great ride also. Our guide Phillipe was great, very informative and looked after us all very well,... More

Andrew and I did the 3 day tour with Fernando and loved every minute of it. The scenery was fantastic the guide knowledgable, helpful and humourous too. The altitude took some getting used to, but biking downhill is the ultimate holiday. Chimborazo was the great, 27 kilometers of downhill with 200 metres of uphill. I have only one suggestion, better... More

The scenery is already great, biking down the Cotopaxi but bikes, concern about safety and the lunch were really good.

It was well organised and we got a good amount of information from a lovely lady at the time of booking (who went out of her way to reassure my slightly nervous girlfriend about the downhill aspect!)....

Dear client We were so very sorry to read your feedback. Let’s first take responsibility: we failed to give you a trip according to your expectations. And “the lovely lady at the time of booking” is the first one to apologize. Apparently we gave you false hopes on how a biking trip in Ecuador looks like. Let’s start with the... More
