About La Ursa Tours
La Ursa Tours was born a long time ago, even though we only recognized it lately. It was born when friends of friends used to come to Recife and we would help them planning a daily tours. Because we are locals, we could help travelers experience the "true Recife" by showing them around properly. We were born and raised here. We love this city. And we believe that biking and walking are the best way to get around it! We love our city and would like to say that we are very happy sharing with Recife and Olinda city visitors, a real and authentic experience of living in here. We have a different perspective of the city and that is what we are interested to share with you. Much more than just showing you the sights, we are interested in giving you an understanding of our culture and urban geography from a local.

This bike tour is great way to see the city and meet people. Roderick was a really good guide and knew a lot of things about the city. I definitely recommend that tour if you want to go places you might not go by yourself.
