The best thing we did in Ecuador! We did the 3 day trip which was a great way to combine sight seeing with some moderate exercise... could defiantly get used to being dropped at the top of mountains to bike down! Biking is certainly not too technical, and enjoyable for all. Fernando was a great guide, very knowledgable, experienced and... More

We completed the 1 day tour of Cotopaxi with the Biking Dutchman, and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. The scenery was amazing, and the bike riding was at times difficult but exciting and enjoyable. The bikes could have been better (from people we spoke to on the day they said the bikes in the Bolivian bike tours are better quality),... More

Thanks for your kind review. I especially appreciated the part where you mentioned that other riders “said the bikes in the Bolivian bike tours are better quality" because it gives me the opportunity to point out how good value we are! In Bolivia the prices for a day trip are US$ 110 (750 Bolivianos) per person and up. We, on... More

We went on two tours with the Biking Dutch man. The first was to the hot springs with Jan. The cycle on the old railway line was really nice. Beautiful views. We decided to go on a second cycle to Cotopaxi. We had a great time. Our group was great fun. I really enjoyed the day. Good laughs had in... More

We are thrilled to read that you could bond to other similar minded travelers and that the experience at Cotopaxi let you meet new friends! I was particularly happy to hear a good comment about our guide Beto, who had just returned from Uruguay and hadn’t worked for us in a while. It looks as though he still has what... More

Had an amazing time with an excellent guide (Fernando) for 3 days. The scenery is great, the food was delicious (and plentiful), and the equipment is of good quality. As an added bonus we got to listen to a local band one night, watch a documentary produced by one of the hostel owners, and meet a local legend (the last... More

I must admit that, you summarized the experience much better than we do, so thank you for that! Your review gives a perfect idea of the tour and the spirit behind it: Sustainable tourism, the one that take our tourists to quaint areas where they can experience the local culture; the one that helps developing rural areas instead of big...

This trip got off to a difficult start. For some reason I missed the email about where to rendezvous (100% my fault). I contacted the BikingDutchman and within an hour,Jan, the owner, personally showed up at my hotel and got me to the biking destination- amazing service! The trip was extremely well organized and planned. Our bike leader, Alex, explained... More

I cannot tell you how sorry I was to hear that you were waiting in the wrong spot for so long. Thanks for being generous enough to blame yourself 100% for it; however I couldn't feel but co-responsible for the misunderstanding. Luckily we were able to accommodate you at the end. I am so thrilled to hear that even after... More

By far the most professional organized tour I have ever been on. Everything on the trip is well executed and organized. Would definitely go back to Quito just for this tour

Running a service providing company is very difficult. Sometimes it gets so challenging that we wonder if it is worth all the hardship. It is comments like the one you gave that keeps us going and motivates us to improve our services even more. It makes us so happy to read reviews like this one because it validates the hard... More

If you feel comfortable on a ATB going downhill, this trip is a must. But even less experienced riders will have a great day. Guaranteed. Descending from Cotopaxi volcano is an Experience you will remember forever, and the Biking Dutchman and his crew take excellent care of you. Pick up and drop off at your hotel. Safety car accompanies the... More

We value your input very much. We are far from perfect, but we would like you to know that we work very hard to earn each good comment. A 5/5 is the best. But 4/5 is also good, isn't it?

I convinced my friend who had never ridden a MTB to join me. She had road bike experience and managed superbly. The guides were awesome, the tour was so well organised and the views were spectacular! I would suggest bringing your own gloves if you can as the ones provided were not great. Bike and helmet was ok though.

We had 2 day trips with Biking Dutchman, the first to the hot springs at Pappallacta and the second down Cotopaxi. Before the trips I was concerned that my husband & I wouldn't be fit enough to cope with the cycling, having done some easy road cycling but no mountain biking ( & being 59). Ana was amazingly prompt &... More
