“Excellent bike tour to the Santa Rita vineyard with Sebastian”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We did the full day tour to the Santa Rita vineyard with Sebastian. He was an excellent tour guide who was so knowledgeable about wine. We learned a lot and felt like he took great care of us. The tour is highly recommended!!!

“Quite possibly the world's best city bicycle tour”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

When traveling, I prefer city bicycle tours, as I enjoy cycling and the tours offer me a more intimate way to be introduced to a city. I can quite honestly say this is the best one I've been on.

Each guest is provided a helmet and well-maintained bicycle. Our tour guide began by asking forgiveness, as he was new - but though he seemed to lack confidence, his capable service showed a high level of training preceded our tour.

With fun delivery, we were introduced to the highlights and history of Santiago. With little bias we were frankly told of the founding of the city and regrettable relations with the natives. We wandered with some freedom through the markets and parks. The layout of the tour seemed very well thought-out and perfectly executed.

I left the tour feeling newly familiar to a city I had been almost lost (in comparison) in for the past few days. Undoubtedly an unforgettable experience - perfect rating indeed.

“Bike and Wine tour - Great”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is a very fun, interesting way to do a wine tour. Biking in the vineyards and then seeing two winery's. However, beware this in NOT your typical wine tastings. The operator brought four bottles of wind for us to just not taste but consume. After four bottles of wine, I was happy for the ride back to the apartment. The lunch stop was a local Chilean food place in the valley and very good.
It is a fairly expensive tour but if you want to see the vineyards from a different perspective, this is for you.

“Touring Valparaiso with eighth graders”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

La Bicicleta Verde's tour guides, Peter and Ben, were a resounding success with my group of 8th graders: just the right amount of information, the zany little factoids of Valparaiso's history, enough rides on ascensores, connections with local people (José playing the guitar on a Cerro Alegre Bench, a stop for alfajores, the trolley ride, the Italian hotel owner), all great stuff! The kids found that the morning flew by and didn't want the tour to be over -- how unusual is that?!?

I've taken students on the Santiago morning mercado tour for the past three years, and it has always been their favorite activity of our entire trip. I'm delighted to know LBV has now expanded into Valparaiso as well as other sights in Santiago. Mac and Peter really "get" young kids, their attention span, topics of interest. I cannot recommend LBV highly enough for all student groups visiting Chile. AND, there's an optional boat ride in the harbor for those who have time! Awesome!
