We rented 2 Yamahas 250xt, for 10 days to make a trip around Ecuador. The bikes were well prepared for us so we had a very smooth ride in local conditions. We have been to many amazing places while exploring local roads on two wheals.

From start to finish these guys did everything right. They were professional, prompt and it was immediately evident that they wanted to provide an original curated experience. I signed up for the 12 day introduction to Ecuador tour during my winter vacation in December and after careful deliberation I chose a VStrom 650. (They have a huge selection of bikes to choose from!) Armed with a GPS system provided by Sylvain (who is a an absolutely wonderful human being and a trilingual polyglot) I sat down for Court’s ride orientation. With a virtuosic attention to detail, he prepped me for everything that would happen on my trip. He pointed out all the local driving customs and particularities of riding a motorcycle in Ecuador and gave me detailed ride sheets with all the cool things to do on the way. This part was intentional, well-thought out with photos and extra details.
The ride and the lodgings were amazing. It became obvious that the lodgings were specifically chosen for their originality, location and security for the bikes. The GPS waypoints were everything that I could have hoped for: twisty roads, great cultural experiences and amazing flora and fauna. At the end of the trip, Gabe, Court, Sylvain gave me full access to all of the facilities to help me transition back to normal life. They let me store my bags until my flight left at 2am! I can’t imagine anything they could have done better. The experience wasn’t cheap but I believe it was fairly priced considering the originality of the routes, the quality of the bikes and the cool factor of the lodgings. Use them without hesitation. I hope to return someday to try a different route.

I just returned from an adventure motorcycle tour with Ecuador Freedom bike rental. It was my second self-guided tour with Freedom. It was also a testament to how good this company is and how open and inviting Ecuador is right now.

First Ecuador Freedom. To adjust for a hotel that hadn’t opened yet, Court went out of his way to tailor a tour to my specific wants and needs. A little from one tour and a little from another resulting in the perfect package for me. I was gratefully amazed with how much effort Court put into making my tour special; just for me, I rode alone.

Out in the backcountry of Ecuador, I had faith that Freedom was checking on me overnight and willing to help if I had a problem. I chose a motorcycle that was similar in size and weight to my own; it turned out to be an older one approaching the end of its rental life. The first day I could tell I wasn’t going to be happy on that bike; it just wasn’t running it’s best. I called court and and he immediately told me he didn’t want me dealing with less than perfect performance. He and Sylvain drove hours that night to meet me at my next hotel with what turned out to be the perfect bike with perfect performance. My fun factor increased X 10! Freedom really does have your back.

Now Ecuador, I felt like the only tourist in the country; I was amazed at the level of service that my hotels provided. I was never put in a position where I felt vulnerable to the Covid virus. People were so happy to have tourists again that they went the extra mile to make me feel welcome and to meet my needs. There is also a lot less traffic on the roads allowing for safer and more relaxed riding.

My tour took me high into the Sierra and down to the Amazon. The beauty was spectacular and the roads awesome. I had an great time and I’m happy that got out and did it.

Thanks Freedom!

Thank you Neil - this is a great review and really helps people to understand just how great Ecuador is right now in the tail end of the pandemic. It has always been a welcoming place but now somehow its even better! With a large fleet of motorcycles, we can be sure our customers are 100% happy. The first bike we gave you seemed to not be too happy not to be running for 7 months so we easily changed it out and then brought it back to our in-house maintenance department, tore it apart and got it running perfectly again. That's the big advantage of renting a motorcycle from a company with a large fleet. We're always happy to design a route that meets the desires and expectations of our customers and we're happy that you enjoyed the route. We hope to see you again for another ride!

I can not rave enough about this company enough! My husband and I decided to create our own loop based on the Freedom blog and some wonderful input from the owners. The experience was INCREDIBLE! We got to spend time with the people while experiencing the diverse landscape through beautiful dirt roads. You won’t want to miss out on the mountains, cloud forrest, volcanoes, and rain forrest. The adventure bikes were perfect for the terrain and we had zero problems. Freedom bike rentals was also incredibly accommodating after we returned the bikes, letting us use their facilities to get clean and comfortable before our returning flight. If you have a chance to spend time with the owners I’d highly recommend it, they’ve got some incredible stories! Seriously an experience unlike any other, Ecuador is amazing and motorcycling is definitely the best way to take advantage of all the country has to offer.

Thank you for raving about us! This is such a great review! We are so glad that you and your husband could get away from it all for a few days and unplug and relax. It was great hearing about your adventures and to know that you lived it to the fullest. Thank you for sharing your experience with us on Tripadvisor.

My wife and I did the “Introduction to Ecuador” guided tour 10 years ago and loved it so much we always knew we would come back someday. On that original trip we also met Dave who would become a good friend and travelling companion to different parts of the world. So now, 10 years later, we decided to do a 10 year reunion trip with Dave.

We did the “Backroads of Ecuador” guided tour this time, hoping we would be lucky enough to get Sylvain again as our guide. Unfortunately Sylvain was too busy to go but it wasn’t a problem because Jhordy did a great job guiding us with Adam driving the chase vehicle. We had six riders in the group which was a nice size, not too big or too small. The tour was really fantastic as it was well planned, with a good mix of riding and making some interesting and fun stops. The hotels were very nice and it was also nice that most things (meals) were included in the price of the tour on all the days except the rest day. The only thing not included is your alcohol so you have a pretty good idea of the cost of the trip up front.

The bikes are modern and well maintained. We rode the Husqvarna Norden 901 and were very happy with it for 2-up riding, especially for the tiny bit of off-roading we did. All in, this was a really amazing trip full of great memories. I would highly recommend both visiting Ecuador and renting a bike or doing a guided tour with Ecuador Freedom Bike Rental. They really did an exceptional job!

p.s. My wife wanted me to mention that she had a couple pairs of leather boots handmade to custom fit her feet ten years ago. She really wanted to go back to get more boots made but the tiny shop was close to Freedom’s old shop and they weren’t sure if the shop was still in business. Sylvain was kind enough to go find the shop on his own and send us a pin so we could locate it and get more boots made. It is little things like this that make Ecuador Freedom Bike Rentals great. Thanks for everything guys!

Ty and Cheri Thank you for writing this detailed review of the Backroads of Ecuador guided tour. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed a second ride with us!  We are absolutely thrilled to learn that you enjoyed your trip as much as the first time you toured Ecuador with us a decade ago. We feel fortunate to have you as one of our loyal and returning customers, it is always a pleasure to welcome friendly and cheerful faces back to our shop.  Sylvain also expresses his regret in not being able to guide this trip. However, we're glad to hear that you were satisfied with the great job done by Jhordy and Adam in guiding your group. They will surely be happy to hear your praises.  We're proud of our meticulously maintained bikes and are thrilled that you enjoyed the Husqvarna Norden 901. We agree it is perfect for a blend of touring, good for 2-up riding with a touch of off-roading.  It's great to hear that you appreciated the convenient all-inclusive aspects of the tour, as we do strive to provide comprehensive packages that make your planning easier and your adventure memorable.  Finally, we're delighted that you had another opportunity to get your favorite custom-made leather boots! Sylvain always aims to go above and beyond for our clients. It's an easy thing to do and we're happy that you were able to get another pair of boots made before heading home.  Once again, thank you for your kind words and the warm sentiments you shared. We're looking forward to hopefully seeing you and Dave back again in the future!

The motorcycle tour was very well organized and our tour guide did an excellent job for the group. I would highly recommend Andy (our tour guide) to anyone planning to do a guided trip. Be prepared with rain gear because it rains a lot at the equator.

Thanks for the great review! Andy has been doing a fantastic job immersing our customers into the local culture and sharing his knowledge and introducing our customers to friends we have all around the country. There are times when we do get rain in Ecuador, like many parts of the world. It is always good to be prepared because here in Ecuador, we have many different climates. Thanks for sharing your experience here on TripAdvisor. We hope to see you again in the future!

Took the Andes, Amazon and Pacific tour in the Ford Ranger quad cab. Very comfortable and lots of luggage storage for 4 adults. 4 wheel drive was handy for occasional sand and loose gravel. Preprogrammed GPS and daily trip sheets were very useful and let us feel quite comfortable on the roads. The selected routes, highlights and points of interest let us see the beauty of Ecuador. Hotel selections were great. Did a similar trip with Ecuador Freedom Tours on bike with a friend last year. Bike and truck tours are both highly recommended.

Finished the Ecuaduro Enduro Tour on March 6th and it was outstanding. The route selection, bike prep, daily log pack, and support were excellent. Accommodations ranged from “just fine” to “spectacular”. The team at EFR put together a great route with nice balance of mostly offroad vs slab through beautiful country filled with history and friendly people. Highly recommend this trip! Quito is a vibrant city with plenty to do, so arrive a couple days early or plan to tack them onto the back end before leave.

One of the best experiences that my wife and I have had. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
We did the Self Guided Back Roads of Ecuador and stayed extra nights at Cuenca and Baños. We rode the BMW F850GS - great bike and fitted out perfectly with side saddles and a box. The guys running this operation are first class. They have thought of everything for you. You can literally just turn up and go. Very detailed day-by-day GPS routes, with points along the way to stop at various sites. A detailed overview from Court before the ride giving extra tips throughout the journey. And of course, the excellent hotels ready for you as you arrive. They were also very responsive prior to the trip answering all of our many questions. The guides and mechanics were also ready to help and are very friendly.
I highly recommend using these guys to explore Ecuador.

My friend and I took two tours with Ecuador Freedom. We did the Ecuador Excursion Off-road Tour and the Dirt Deluxe. The first was an amazing experience of off-road excellence, with challenging roads, amazing views, good accommodation and great riding. The second is what it says. A more deluxe tour of the Excursion with a little less dirt and higher end accommodation but still the great views of the countryside and awesome off-road adventure. We did a rest day in Mindo, spending time learning about chocolate and coffee and taking a visit to the butterfly gardens. Would recommend any of these tours on their own or, like we did, combining them. The guys at the shop were amazing, getting us set up and on the road. Even after having some mechanical issues, I was back at the shop, but on the road within the hour of arriving. First class service all the way.

Scott Thank you for this wonderful review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed both of the offroad tours with us. Just for clarification for the readers, you had dropped the bike and broke a footpeg - there were no mechanical issues with our bikes during your trip! We were able to assist you so that you could continue your trip, thanks to our large inventory of bikes available. Thank you again for sharing your experience here on TripAdvisor. We hope to see you again!
