We finished the four-day hike and bike trip yesterday and it was really one of the best experiences we have ever had whilst travelling. Our guide, Etiel, and driver, Patrice, were so professional and there was a great balance between information and fun. Etiel had a real enthusiasm for the countryside, mountain biking and life in general that really added... More

We had a fantastic day biking Cotopaxi with the Biking Dutchman!! The trip involved a hike around a stunning lake with views of Cotopaxi, followed by a few hours of riding through the national park; old lava flows, wild flowers, views of surrounding volcanoes - amazing scenery! Included an excellent home made lunch (plenty of food!!) by a river and... More

We arranged a 1-day MTB-tour to the Cotopaxi (Volcano). Some climbs weren't easy because of the altitude, but Jan waited for the group and took the time to catch your breath again. We cycled with wild horses, which was a really great experience! The lunch was good, a homemade lunch with brownies as dessert. Lovely! It's important to have enough... More

We had a wonderful day biking down a mountain on mountain bikes from 3400 m to 1600 m with our three kids aged 15, 12 and 11. We went through different biospheres as we descended through beautiful lush surroundings and empty roads, ending in Mindo. Our guide took a lot of effort to ensure everyone was safe and had fun...

Excellent time with Alex and Jan, made me feel comfortable on the MTB excursion. Trail was fantastic, it got cold and wet on the amazon side of the big downhill segment, but I wanted to ride anyway and Jan was very accommodating and had some warm weather gear for me and shin guards. Alex was great and rode with Me,... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our five day tour with The Biking Dutchman. The cycling was mainly downhill, through an amazing variety of scenery from snow- capped volcanoes to rain forests and from high altitudes to almost sea level. My favourite ride took us from Chimborazo, following a river valley, down through the most beautiful Andean landscape, through local villages, past llamas, poncho-clad... More
