It could be said to be hard to pick out the highlight of our three day/2 night Cotopaxi, Quilotoa, Chimborazo tour, but in fact it is easy: my friend and I, both women in their 40's beating our guide Dylan back to the jeep on the last day. Yes folks: youth is wasted on the young! :p However in all... More

I took part in a day trip to Cotopaxi organized by the Biking Dutchman. Very well organized and a lot of fun. If anyone is looking for a safe, exciting activity in Quito I highly recommend doing a Biking Dutchman trip.

Thank you so much for your advice to other visitors: “If anyone is looking for a safe, exciting activity in Quito I highly recommend doing a Biking Dutchman trip.” Sometimes visitors are looking for an adventure and think that any will do the job. I disagree with them as I share your vision. One should definitely not look for what’s... More

If you have one day .... this is the trip. I have been twice on this one. Beautiful location. Plenty of downhill. So different than being in the city. Want to try a two or three day trip next time : )

We had a wonderful experience on a 1 day Cotopaxi bike tour, though we were not in our best shape the pieces of advice received from the bike guide was extremely useful and the car permanently accompanying us was reasuring.

A really exhilarating and challenging day out biking down from Cotopaxi. I have never mountain biked before but Fernando and Dylan were excellent guides, lots of explanation and good equipment. Be prepared for some teeth rattling sections and take lots of layers plus a hat that will fit under your biking helmet (provided). Their web site says that this trip... More

Let me start apologizing for such a belayed reply. I usually try to answer in a blink of an eye. However these have been challenging weeks for the BIKING DUTCHMAN and for myself, and therefor I haven’t had the energy to reply. Challenging because we have won an open Contest organized by the Ministery of Tourism of ECUADOR, to take... More
