Seven of us went on the ride down Cotopaxi and had a great time. I fell off (totally my fault, nothing to do with the bike), and that didn't make me have any less of a good time at all. We were lucky enough to have the owner as a guide, and he was a champeon. I'd highly recommend them.

There was some miscommunication on the actual trip length as far as biking went which got me a bit nervous when we showed up but our tour guide (the owner) was incredibly thorough, attentive and caring. We came a bit unprepared for such an activity (had to borrow a jacket) but mountain biking with the biking Dutchman was the best... More

For US it was a sweet surprise to read your kindest review today! I am sorry that you were NOT prepared for the adventure. And I must probably blame myself for it. It is great that in the end everything worked out for the best. As you, English speaking people, so nicely say: “All well what ends well” Jan was... More

I did the tour with my boyfriend and it was the first time that either of us went mountain biking. Fernando was our guide for all four days, and he definitely made the trip educational as well as exciting. He was very knowledgeable, and knew so much about every place we went. The route itself was very well thought out,... More

Thank you so very much for the appreciative Review that you recently posted in the TRIP ADVISOR. In deed, the trip you took gives tourists the opportunity to see Ecuador’s variety in such a short time. I reckon that very few countries, if any, offer this advantage: To be able to travel and see so much in a couple of... More

We were so glad we went on the Cotopaxi day trip! We had such a wonderful time. We had three awesome guides: Roberto, Fernando, and another guy whose name I've sadly forgotten. Roberto was awesome on the ride out there, talking to us about the area and giving us tips. Fernando stuck with us the whole bike ride, making sure... More

We are so glad we spent the day with the Biking Dutchman a few weeks ago. Our guide, Fernando was very personable and we met him at the Cotopaxi park (with our drivers) which he explained that we would acclimatize slowly to the altitude. My 14 year old daughter and I felt fine (although I know it varies from individuals).... More

Thanks for your kind review in the TRIP ADVISOR. From your description of the day, it seems that you had an especially cold day! Even though it is not always that cold, it is always advisable that passengers bring VERY warm and water proof clothing, as the owner says: “There is no bad weather just bad clothing”.
