Fernando was an amazing guide to take us mountain biking at Cotopaxi. His passion for the natural beauty of the place and for sharing his deep knowledge was even more fun than the biking itself.... and that, too, was awesome! The bikes were in excellent condition and the home cooked lunch made it extra special.

What a great last day in Ecuador! We had the privilege of going with the owner on a private tour, which will be part of our memories for a lifetime. We were treated with such care that we never worried about the Biking. He had all of the equipment and a handmade lunch with ginger sauce that was great! Besides... More

A great way to see cotopaxi without having to be in Ecuador long enough to work up to the elevation requirements as they have a downhill biking only option! They were super easy to work with, the guide was great and let anyone take tons of pictures. A little thrilling too! I'd totally recommend these guys to anyone with limited... More

We've done the Death Road and cycled internationally for different countries as national sporting reps... But this is the best cycling tour we've done in South America by far. Why? Personable service, excellent off road sections, amazing food and instant friends. Nuff said. Yes you might be able to save a small amount on a different tour, but you get... More

We did a two-day trip (Cotopaxi & Quilotoa). Biking was a really fun way to see Cotopaxi and the countryside near Quilotoa. Fernando was an excellent, knowledgeable guide. I started the weekend pretty nervous on a mountain bike and ended it fairly confident. If I make it back to Quito, I will definitely do another weekend tour!

We were thrilled with your generous comments about your recent experience with the BIKING DUTCHMAN. Every day is a new beginning and the experience has shown us that, like Forrest Gum's mom used to say "Life is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you are going to get". When we meet our clients early in the mornings,... More

I heard that Biking Dutchman is more expensive than other tours, but when you are on it you realise why. We had a brilliant day, the only group on the trails and there were plenty of bikers heading up who then took a less interesting and shorter route. Our guide was knowledgable about the area and the biking and the... More

We had just a perfect day! Everything was well organized. Fernando as our guide didn't just do a good job, his work was amazing.
