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

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

Although we were not provided with the exact itinerary that was emailed to us, we had a great day out. Alex was an exceptionally great guide and could not do enough for us. His English was excellent and he was very informative throughout the day. Be aware that the day is likely to be shorter than advertised; you won't go... More

Thanks for your feedback which will enable us to improve. I am sorry that you were expecting hot springs, maybe you mixed up the Cotopaxi Tour with the Papallacta one?

We had another fantastic, fabulous, amazing bike trip. The first time we did the 3 day. We had so much fun that we decided to do the 5 day from Antisana to Chimbarazo to Banos to the jungle and back toward Quito through Papallacta. Going from the highlands to the jungle was spectacular!! The scenery and the people were just... More

The one day tour of Cotopaxi with Biking Dutchman was terrific; my only regret is that I couldn't do more of their tours! The couple who owns the company, Jan and Ana, are truly the loveliest people.

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.

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
