Highly recommend Quito Bike Tours
Our guide Jose has got to be the most knowledgeable guide, if not person, living in Quito. He knows everything about everything and is super friendly. We saw a ton. The bikes are very high quality.

I enjoyed every Moment ❤️❤️
I highly recommend everyone to go on a tour while traveling Ecuador. You will be safely guided though the most beautiful corners of the city with many nice stopovers including various pleasant surprises. The guides were super friendly and motivated. Thanks a lot for this lovely day.

very COVID safe + incredible tour/staff
Jan 2021 • Solo
This was an incredible experience. The staff that guided me (Catalina, Carlos, and Alejandro) did an extremely good job and were very precautious about COVID while making sure I got to see and experience as much as I could. We visited so many different parts of the city and I got to try wonderful juices, chocolate, and traditional snacks. They were very attentive and answered all the questions I had. I enjoyed the tour so much, I booked two other ones that they were able to personalize for me. They were extremely flexible, accommodating and wonderful. I would 100% recommend this to anyone because biking was an excellent way to see and get to know the culture and roads of the city. Most of the path is very flat and easy to do. One thing I really enjoyed about the staff is that they took their time and never rushed me. I got to ask all of the questions I needed to and they even took me to see a lot of local Ecuadorian sites and people. It was a great look into the city, culture, architecture, and overall tradition. 10/10 would recommend!

Be sure to ask about the other tours they provide too! They have great options

Highly recommend for families with teens!
Perfect activity for our family with 3 teens (14,16 and 18) Fantastic food tasting, chocolate, fruit, juices, pork, empanada and other dishes! This is a wonderful overview of Quito, it’s history, people and culture. It also is active so teenagers did not get board. Catalina is so knowledgeable and interesting! I highly recommend going on a Sunday morning because Amazonas street is closed to cars so made for easy biking!! We were able to see more because of this and without so many cars.

If you only have a short time in Quito, this is a great way to see, taste and learn many things in only 1/2 day without being stuck in a bus or with a large group. Tour guides were amazing. Highly recommended.

Cultural Tour
Jan 2020 • Solo
FANTASTIC Cultural Tour with Catalina y José Luis today!! Even though I’ve spent time living in Quito, they introduced me to new areas of the city, all accompanied with amazing facts, history and commentary that made the tour so interesting and valuable.

Catalina explained the meaning and importance of street art and local artisania, and introduced a local painter who has captured the real life experiences of Quiteños over the years in his art and!

Fun to experiment with fruits and alfalfa juice at the mercado - just an overall superb experience all while riding (safely) through the city. What I enjoyed the most in today’s tour was the intimate understanding of the country and its people that Catalina and Jose Luis were able to convey!!! Highly recommend Quito Bike Tours for your Quito tour needs!!

Hello, Susan! It was a true pleasure to show you around our city and introduce you to our friends. We, for sure, enjoyed as much as you. Our staff is convinced that the best experience is when you are close to the people and the culture, and we want to bring you to deeply experience all this with us. Hope to see you soon in case you think of visiting Ecuador again! Att. Catalina.

We did the afternoon 2:00 bike tour. It was superb! Sole’ was so kind, informative and safety conscious! We loved tasting the chocolate, seeing the different views of the city, tasting the food at the fruit market and more! I highly recommend doing this as you cover a lot of ground and get lots of info.

Quito by bike; excellent experience!
Nov 2019
Despite the very challenging height differences in Quito, we still dared to register for the bike ride. A real must! With 2 professional guides you will get to know the not yet touristy part of Quito, visit the official Pacari chocolate shop (with excellent explanation) and visit a local vegetable market with a professional explanation of the various vegetables and fruits. With tasting. All in all good to do with 4 light to moderate climbs. Top!

Perfect way to get to know the city!

Perfect way to experience Quito ! 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♂️😊
I did the Cultural City Bike Tour + Historical Centre this Sunday and it was the perfect way to see and experience the city. With this bike tour I was able to see so many exciting parts of this big city in just one day, which I couldn't, if I just would do a normal walking tour. Our Guides Alex and Ombretta spoke a perfect English and gave us very informative insights to interesting spots of Quito. Also, the security of the participants was very important for the guides, so I felt super safe all the time! :) I loved it and I can totally recommend it! 👍👍😎

Fabulous City Tour - Covers a lot of ground and is fascinating
Aug 2019
I love this 4 hours tour with Catalina and Jorge. Quito is a tough city to get a handle on because of it size and it is not obviously the most cycle friendly place, but this group know all the secrets of getting around and is quite knowledgeable about the city past and present. you really see the depth and breath of the town. it was a perfect half day of cycling, parks, learning and chocolate. Quito's best!!!!!
