      Rio Bike - 3 Hour Bike Trip Recommended
      A bit tricky finding their home base, but since they were taking the bikes outside I could spot them easier. The 3 hour bike tour had a nice pace to it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Remember a hat, the sun is brutal in some parts. Would have been nice to have my own pannier for my bike but the guide was kind enough to carrier my pack for us. Big thank you for that. Very fun, highly recommended.

      Fun to visit Rio by bike
      We did the panoramic tour as a first sight seeing of Rio. Wim was our guide and he did a perfect job. We did the highlights in south of rio, but visiting these by bike makes the difference. Knowledgeable guide.

      Great way to see Rio
      Our guide, Doug, was amazing. Full of information and really funny and quirky. Brought Rio to life for us. It was an amazing tour with wonderful views of Rio. A great way to get round the city and the tour wasn't too taxing. Would definitely recommend.

      Great, if a little taxing
      A fun alternative way to explore the lovely city of Rio. Our guide Ulyses was great, friendly and helpful. He chose a great route to see many sights. Only downside, the bikes are a bit old, with no gears so after about4 hrs, you feel it. A bit of hard work! Still enjoyed it.

      Ulysses made a top guide in this wonderful city
      We have done a LOT of city bike rides, all over the world. So we know when it’s good and this was definitely great. We were late (useless Uber driver) but our guide was totally chilled and couldn’t have been more accommodating. He managed to get the balance right with the amount of information, plenty of rest stops, plenty of drinks and he certainly knew the city well. Plus a great sense of humour and lots of tips of places to go and restaurants. Thank you, Ulysses!

      Gratis tour, gratis guide
      We (almost 69 and 74 year³s) drove about 35 km in the 7- hours tour, so that was easy. Marco told a lot about live in Brasil and especially in Rio. All the things written in other reviews below are true. The owner and Marco, our guide, are relaxed people full of trust. We had a tasty lunch too. And there were no other tourists with us, but that was no problem for Riobikes. Thanks Marco for this wonderfull day!

      Better than any walking tour
      Philip was a great guide, it was a wonderful time exploring the city by bike. Better than a walking tour in my opinion, because it's easier to cover more ground in the same time. Highly recommend!

      A great way to explore Rio!
      The Rio by bike is a great tour for anyone wanting to explore Rio. Our guide was really informative and the route is almost all on bike lanes so is accessible to all levels. It was raining when we arrived in the morning for our tour but Jan was very accommodating and let us join the afternoon group and gave us some suggestions of places to eat and see to fill our time. A really nice team and definitely worth booking!

      A different way to tour Rio De Janeiro
      We were promptly received outside the Rio Othon hotel, Copacabana meeting point by Jan with whom I organised the tour a week prior and Marco who took us on the tour on the actual day. The bike tour is really informative, professionally structured and well executed. Marco has a wealth of knowledge about Brazil’s history as well as the various points we stop at and ensures you are given all of the details. We most certainly enjoyed the overall tour and went away with plenty of knowledge about Rio and Brazil. The tour we selected was the 4hour panoramic one which lasts the entire time period from start to finish. The actual bike ride although lengthy it may be, about 28kilometres round trip, the gentle pace is relaxing and enjoyable indeed. A must tour for everyone who visits Rio.

      Great value for money + interesting experience! 🙏
      The perfect way to understand the history of the city, it's values and where to go! 🙏 The guides took us to the most interesting spots in town telling us the most amazing things. From amazing hikes with incredible views, to bike tours through the city and even going into favelas like you are one of the community. Friendly, thoughtful guides with who you can have a talk about anything. I would always recommend these guys! 👊

      See beautiful Rio by bike!
      Booked a tour last minute, due to my plans not being set in stone. Rio by bike was able to accommodate me. Jan was on time and met me to give me all the info regarding the tour, had a map and was able to make an adjustment since I had already seen one of the attractions on the tour and change it out for something else. I was the only one of the tour due to the pandemic and tourism being down. I had an excellent time seeing all parts of the city while learning about history, culture and life in Brazil. I highly recommend this bike tour company. Also, the roads were pretty flat so even if you are not an experienced biker you can do it! Loved seeing the city this way, traffic was not bad either so no concerns, there are also a lot of bike lanes which will help you feel safe. Book it!

      We really enjoyed our Panoramic Bike Tour with Rio by Bike. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient when it came to answering all of our questions. I would highly advise booking this tour

      Cycling Rio
      I had an excellent time with Rio by bike. I was travelling solo in January 2020 and bumped into Rio by bike on trip advisor. Calling and booking was super easy. On the day of my ride, I was the only one on the tour and I appreciate the fact that they didn’t cancel it because of too few people- they ended up taking me on a solo tour which was brilliant. The tour guide cycled at my pace so I didn’t feel rushed, had a good knowledge of the city and we stopped for a refreshing coconut break. We took loads of photos and I appreciated Rio’s beauty the more. Most of the cycling is on bike lanes and by water; what’s not to love? It was awesome and I would recommend! Also the açaí berry sold at the store next door to the Rio by bike shop is amazing!

      Loved this ride!
      What an awesome way to spend your first day in Rio! On a bike. We booked the Panoramic bike tour with this company and had such great fun. Our group was diverse and luckily not more than six people, from Europe and a couple from Canada. The guide was a local with good English. His information during the tour contained more than just some facts about the sights and the different neighborhoods, we also got a lot of insight in the local culture and customs. I really liked that aspect.The bicycles were good, with hand breaks and no gears - the route was basically flat. Helmets were also provided for. If you go, bring sun block and drink a lot of water. It can get hot in Rio.

    Wonderful Bike Tour of Rio

    We love to take bike tours of the major cities we visit throughout the world. Marco was our guide for an excellent tour of Rio. We biked from 9 AM – 4 PM throughout the entire city and were able to see many of the main attractions (Sugerloaf, beaches, harbors, Christ the Redeemer, Cemetery, downtown buildings, etc.) from different vantage points. Marco was a very personable and really helped us learn about the city that he knows and loves. Great tour! Highly recommend!

    The best way to see Rio de Janeiro in one day! Our guide took us to highlights like the beaches and the famous steps but also to the homebases of the big Rio football teams, an impressive old cemetery and good places to eat and have cafezinho. We recommend this tour to everybody, who likes to feel part of this big and beautiful city, cycling along the bike lanes and through the smaller streets.

    We did the Ultimate Bike Tour, it was a fantastic way to cover Rio. The bike's were so comfortable and the riding was very relaxed, I was surprised how much of Rio offers bike lanes away from traffic. I recommend doing this tour early in your trip.

    Our guide was fantastic and also had us laughing lots.

    Our tour was the Ultimate Rio Full Day. An adventure it was. Marco our guide was great. The food was delicious!
    If you don’t have much time in Rio then this is the tour for you. You get to see the whole city & scope out where you would next like to go & visit next.

    Philip led our tour of two around the city for 8 hours (we ran over time)! He was an awesome tour guide, we had a really good time and learned a lot about Rio. I highly recommend this company. The route was comfortable and flat. Perfect way to see most of the city in a safe, fun way!

    This is such a great way to see Rio, and much more interesting and comfortable (in my eyes) than trudging around on foot in the heat. Our guide, Matt, spoke perfect English and was really thoughtful and friendly - keeping an eye on us at junctions and crossings, and ensuring we had stops along the way. If you're ok to ride a bike then you should be fine with the pace - the amount of cycle lanes are a pleasant surprise and it's a pretty flat route. Bikes are very good and comfy, and helmets are optional. My parents are in their 60s and were completely fine and found this to be a highlight of their trip. An interesting and healthy 3 hours!

    Two of us did the full day tour with Ulysses. Bikes were fine - single speed and not for the Tour de France but good for riding around Rio for a a few hours. Most of the route was on cycle track and very flat. The route was interesting and Ulysses was fun and informative.
