Overview
Discover the Ecuadorean Andes in a breath-taking trip to Cotopaxi, Quilotoa, and Chimborazo, in a three-day mountain biking tour. Descend Cotopaxi on your first day, travel to the most beautiful lake in Ecuador on your second, and go to the closest point on earth to the sun on the third. On top of the natural beauty, you will also have the chance to mingle and share time with Andean Indigenous communities. Llamas, Vicunas, and possibly Condors will be our high altitude companions throughout this adventure. This tour has it all.

Roberto and Patricio made this trip exceptional. We had just returned to Quito from the Galapagos and were concerned about adjusting to the elevations. They ensured we were hydrated, drank coca tea, and accommodated us with one night at a lower elevation at a hotel in Riobamba.

What a great review; it made me smile and be happy for the whole afternoon (And probably also tomorrow and the day after!) We strive to create good memories and give our guests a great time. Sometimes we cannot change very much the itinerary, but if possible, we try to accommodate your needs. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for giving us the chance to show you Ecuador in a fun and unique way, taking you to quaint areas of our Andes. Also, I am glad that families feel safe doing an activity that has intrinsic risks. We are particularly proud of that!

I loved the 3 day - 2 night tour to Cotopaxi, Quilotoa, and Chimborazo. I only had a few days for the highlands and this tour brought me to everything I wanted to see. Guides were knowledgable and gave detailed information on the different mtb-routes. Accommadation was far

It was awesome to read your review. I was particularly happy that you found the accommodation "far better than expected". It is simple indeed, however "the arm-hearted hosts" make the difference. And that is the reason we love working with them; as we genuinely believe that tourism should bless us all, and not only the big chains of hotels and restaurants, but also those small entrepreneurs that represent far better our citizens! Thank you for supporting their economy. We do not include dinners to give you the opportunity to choose. You might prefer to wonder next door in Quilotoa and visit other families. Or maybe you prefer a simple soup instead of the full menu. Also, because in the longer trips, sometimes clients like to have a little quality time with their significant others, rather than spend 24/7 with other riders, but thanks for your input.

Our family (with two 12 old children) had such a great time with Biking Dutchman - fun, peaceful, exhilarating, relaxing - all of these combined. FIRST, the team is awesome. Our guide, Atiel, was extremely knowledgeable about cycling, Ecuador, and South America. He checked

Your fantastic Review made my day! For us, it is a privilege to be able to show our country in this unique way, to all visitors than honor us with their choice. We are very proud to be the “Original”, the ones who first had the idea to do mountain bike tours in Ecuador (and probably South America) And we have devoted ourselves to provide memories such as yours to visitors. However, to hear from you that the trip was “fun, peaceful, exhilarating, relaxing “ goes beyond our best dreams. Etiel and the team will be also happy to read your kind words, as we all strive to achieve HAPPY CLIENTS! Thanks for your recommendation and hopefully many more will follow your steps.

Your thorough Review came as gift to me today! Thank you for your generous words. I am sincerely touched by expressions like: “life highlight” or “The scenery was absolutely incredible and the range of landscapes that we went through were diverse and breathtaking!” You do not forget to mention Jan and me, neither did you leave out Paul or our driver, not to mention our food, especially prepared for you! It really means the world to us that our clients show such appreciation for our work. I cannot thank you enough for your time and kindness. I sincerely hope that you do return to our beautiful country and that you take one of our tours again, as that would give us the opportunity to give you a treat, like you deserve.

This was one of the best experiences of my life. There was amazing scenery and nature which was all very unique to Ecuador. The trip also wouldn't have been the same without our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, Paul and our reliable and hard working driver Patricio
