We enjoyed our 2 days trip to Cotopaxi and Quilotoa! The downhill from Cotopaxi has amazing views! As the cars stay just behind the last cyclist, you can always jump in the car in case you don't feel comfortable with the descent. Cycling will be both off-road as well as partly on paved roads. Especially the downhill from Quilotoa gives... More

I have done 5 one-day bike trips with Jan, the Biking Dutchman. They are all great, with top-quality mountain bikes, guides, a support SUV, and a great lunch. My most recent trip was to Cotopaxi, a volcano national park. I would highly recommend it. Great vistas, diverse scenery, and fun, interesting trails. You start high (15000') so bring warm gear....

I am not so sure how to start. Maybe by saying thank you so very much for your most kind Review in the Trip Advisor. But, even more important, is your preference for our company. It is true that we have been on business for more than two decades. Nevertheless, that you have done 5 different trips with us is... More

We did the 1 day Cotopaxi tour today and it was great. We lucked out on the volcano with the weather but regardless of that our guide and driver were fantastic. They don't mind if you bike at your own pace and were super nice too. I'd highly recommend them. Make sure you tip the guide and driver because for... More

Wow!! Thanks for your great Review. Our day tour to Cotopaxi is an experience not to be missed, in deed. It is liked by good bikers and not so good ones alike. Because just to be there is such a humbling experience. You were lucky with the weather. However, our part of the deal seems to have been delivered too... More

We did the 3 day Antisana/Quilotoa/Chimborazo trip. We've done a number of biking trips in other countries and this didn't live up to the reviews I've read on TA. The guide we had was really good. He did well with what he had available. We only had a guide + driver on day 1 and then then just the guide... More

In my opinion, your detailed and discouraging review shows a very partial vision of the tour, the company and the experience in general, reading it was heartbreaking and made us wish you would have also mention the positive things. Like size of the group, ratio clients/guide, being able to go to small markets, and quaint places… We talked with the... More

We went on a one-day tour of Cotopaxi and had a wonderful and safe experience with the Biking Dutchman team. We left Quito at 7am and drove to 15,000 feet where we began. Along the way the group stopped to pick up someone staying in Machachi, they seemed very accommodating for people not staying exactly in Quito. We had a... More

Our guides picked us up from Quito and took us to the home of the Biking Dutchman, where we were fitted for bikes and helmets. The "warmup" ride was a beautiful 10k trail that took us into and then out of a stunning canyon. After this portion we were transported by Jeep to the main part of our adventure, a... More

Thanks for the recount of your experience in Ecuador. THe tour to the hot springs located in Papallacta, in the heart of the Andes, remain one of my favorite ones. Not only because of the variety that is on offer, but particularly for the beautiful and gentle rides that one can have, in just a day. The advice you gave... More

Highly recommend - great way to see Ecuador. We did 3 one-day trips (wanted to sleep at modest elevation, so didn't do 3-day). Favorite was Antisana - amazing, beautiful, terrific!! Nono-Mindo was also excellent and includes optional 1 hour climb, if you want exercise. Rough descent after climb wasn't great since bikes don't have good suspension - I might ride... More
