Fantastic day with family, including 2 children of 12 and 15. Great equipment and service. Relaxed atmosphere in the hills of Barichara. Hard but not impossible, as long as you have a reasonable level of fitness. Best part for me was the cross country 15-20 Km part in the afternoon. Thank you to the guides.

At first sight the flagship downhill tour might seem expensive, but it's worth every peso!
Breakfast and lunch are provided and are both very tasty, and you're given as much cookies, fruit and water as you want.
The full suspension Kona bikes are well maintained and adjusted to your needs, and we were very happy with John, our Kiwi guide.
The pictures, taken during the day, they mail you are also a big plus!
P.S.: Mike & John, we loved the music in the 4x4!

Best tour I have ever done.
Staff is super friendly. Bikes are amazing and these guys tune them up according to your weight, height, etc.
Tour guides are really experienced and make the whole tour super fun.
They totally adapt at your fitness level, of course you can go as hardcore as you wish.
Food was good and sweets as well.
Views are breathtaking along the whole way.
Totally worth it. Its a must do activity if you like bikes, adrenaline or physical activities in general.

How is it that this tour caters to everyone of almost ALL fitness levels? amazing.

Our group had everyone from avid riders to a lady who never rides at all...and everyone loved it. You can pump as much adrenaline as you can handle, if you want to blaze through you can, if you want to ride slow and easy, its your choice too. Either way, we had full 4x4 support all the way. Mike follows along in his 4x4 jams out to his stereo , out of sight...so theres never any pressure to ride faster but you always know he's there in case you need help.

If you only wanted to do half the route, Im sure they would have no problem with you sitting in the 4x4 sipping a cerveza the rest of the way too (thought crossed my mind a few times!).
Its almost like being in the tour de france and having a team car..
If i had come all the way out to San Gil and had only done this ride, I'd be pretty darn happy! just my 2cents.

We had so much fun! The group was great, the instruction short and precise. Plenty of water and snacks, great sandwiches for lunch too! The downhill was fun. The few uphills were challenging and the cross country was good. Views are spectacular!
