Ever since I heard of EcoRides I wanted to do a tour but didn’t get the opportunity to do so until now. As locals, we often don’t take advantage of the beauty of our island because, as the saying goes, “we live and work where you vacation”. Work seems to overshadow opportunity. Having been in COVID-19 lockdown for 3 months (which definitely paid off!), once the restrictions were lifted and we could begin to move around, I was determined to go on a EcoRides Tour. The owner recommended the tour he thought we’d most enjoy so we booked the Sunrise Tour. It was absolutely wonderful! We were taken to a family cave which is not publicly accessible, ate fresh plums straight off the tree, enjoyed a most delicious coconut tart and coconut water, plus got to see several friends along the way. We highly recommend EcoRides to anyone who wants an enjoyable outdoor adventure. There was not one negative during the tour! Go, enjoy it! It’s well worth it!

I've been visiting the island for the past 6 years and recently stumbled upon ECO Rides. Nobody else in my group was interested in doing a ride, so I signed up to do the shorter of the rides, the sunrise tour. It ended up just being Shane and I, which was great! He was very informative, friendly, and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. I'll definitely be booking a longer ride the next time I'm back! Whether you are a solo rider, small or large group, make time to book one of his tours!

What I love most about tours like this is spending some time with a local person who loves their city/town and wants to tell you about it. It's really interesting to hear about the history of a place and the people to understand how it came to be what it is. Couple that with some exercise on a bike ride and seeing some of the interesting spots on the much less traveled east end and it was a nice morning. There were only two of us on the tour the day we went so we got to really talk with Shane and get to know the place a little more. Unfortunately for our specific day it was really windy so the bike ride was a little bit more arduous but still good. Very thankful for an early start before it gets too hot. Thank you Shane!

Shane... first of all, you are the man... second of all, you sure know how to show people a good time. If you’re reading this review and thinking about taking this tour.... book it. It was such a blast biking with Shane. He took us all over the east side of the island and showed us his home town. The stops along the way we’re beautiful and he was very knowledgeable about their history. He answered all of our questions without skipping a beat. He knows everything about his side of the island and is very passionate in teaching it to outsiders. I was very appreciative of his drive and how much he cared about showing us a good time. He even let us into his home and gave us some fresh coconuts to try. We had such a great time. I wish I was there right now sipping on some fresh coconut water starring at the ocean in his backyard. What a great time. Thanks brother.

We come to the East End of Grand Cayman every year and decided after 5 years to see 'more'. This Sunrise bike tour was great. As an older person (60's) who isn't a regular bike-rider but does work out, it was comfortable activity. The tour lasted about 3 1/2 hours with frequent stops.

Shane was fantastic, showing us things that we would not have even known existed as well as pointing out good-to-know things about restaurants, flora and fauna. He really gives you a nice summary of the history of the island which was very interesting.
The equipment was good and the availability of water from start to finish was a plus on a very hot day. We are so glad we did this and highly recommend it.

Shane was wonderful telling about/showing the area and providing interesting historical facts—you can tell how much he loves the area. The bikes were well maintained. The tour went at a nice pace for most bikers. I would definitely recommend!

My 3 teenage daughters and myself did the Cayman sunrise tour. Shane who is a local with strong family ties was very informative about the islands history -particularly economically and politically. He was safety conscious and very concerned about rider safety. Quality of bikes were great. The East side of the island was a different relaxed vibe. Enjoyed it and recommend it to families/people confident on a bike. Downside was it was very early! But for safety and temperature concerns it makes sense!

Wonderful tour - our first time in Cayman and we wanted to see more than 7 mile beach. Shane picked us up early and delivered a first class truly personalized experience. As a life-long east end resident, he shared his intimate knowledge of the people and their history and took us to all the key sites - blowholes, lovers wall, private caves and more. Heartily recommended to all!

This tour was simply amazing! We've lived in Cayman for about a year, and have always been interested in the history of the island. This easy-going tour was something I didn't expect to enjoy so much! East End is certainly full of treasures and incredible historical value, and our guide was nothing short of amazing. We stopped at quite a few places, and were impressed time and time again with his wealth of knowledge, passion and positivity he has for sharing stories of Cayman's history and future. I encourage all visitors and residents of Cayman to take this tour!
