My girlfriend and I completed the one day biking tour down and around the beautiful landscape of Cotopaxi with our guide, Roberto. Roberto was an amazing guide who is very accommodating to those with different biking skill levels. Always checking to make sure we’re safe and having a good time, his constant positive energy keeps you engaged with a smile on the whole ride. A special shout out to Ana, who responded to my endless emails leading up to our tour. Thank you for coordinating everything for us, including a birthday cake to help celebrate my girlfriend’s big day. Second shout out to Gabriel, our driver, along side us and Roberto the whole way. The Biking Dutchman experience overall is something I highly recommend to anybody seeking a fun way to explore the vast beauty that Cotopaxi national park has to offer. Thank you guys for this special day.

Thank you so much for this amazing review, that warmed up my heart ❤. But first of all, thank you to both of you for choosing us to celebrate that special day! I hope that the surprise that you and I so carefully planned, was actually a surprise! We are happy that our team did a good job. The park has indeed so much to offer and our tours take you to spots that are quaint and that tourists normally don't even know they exist! It is not just a day in the nature, it is not only a day biking: it is a magical experience along amazing natural wonders! Thanks for sharing this with us!

Tour guide knew what he was talking about and I loved that so much. Tour was better than expected and the private tour was nice because having a driver was extremely luxe. Lunch was pleasant and the views were unmatchable. I had an amazing time and so glad I booked this trip with my brother. If you’re looking to take a road off the beaten path they’re great at accommodating for whatever you’re looking for. Thank you guys!

It is for us a great source of happiness to have satisfied clients! We were honored with your visit and cannot thank you enough for this amazing review! We have been in business since 1991, a long time indeed, but we have the same enthusiasm as when Jan told me: "Trust me: it will work" as I had my doubts to put all our savings, the money we have earned working hard, into buying 5 Mountain bikes and a Toyota Land Cruiser. Nobody had done that before and to start something completely new, can be scary, but we did it any way. 30 years after, we can be proud. We actually did it!

Deserves its excellent reputation! The tour in Cotopaxi was one of the highlights of our trip. Absolutely amazing - booked another tour with them right after! I had never used a mountain bike before in such settings, and I felt safe and supported throughout the tour. Bikes were of excellent quality. The owners are some of the nicest/most interesting persons we met in Ecuador, they care about their clients and continue to provide excellent (and safe) service at a time when COVID has been impacting them (and the entire tourism industry!) severely. I strongly recommend this agency!

Thank you so very much for your encouraging review. 29 years ago the BIKING DUTCHMAN started operations -as the pioneers in MOUNTAIN BIKING in Ecuador-. We have had our ups and downs, sometimes strikes or a volcano tested our skills to survive. But nothing could have prepared us for this Pandemia. However, we are confident that -when this is over- we will come out stronger than ever. How do we know that? Because now, more than ever, TRUST means all and, fortunately, we have earned the trust of our clients, by being every day the best we can! Thanks again for your recommendation it means the world to us.

Fear not - the famous Biking Dutchman is still leading amazing tours. The full experience was professional from start to finish. I messaged on WhatsApp to plan my trip and immediately received messages back with options for travel. They worked with me to plan a perfect trip and did not disappoint. Jan is a pioneer of biking in Ecuador. Name a route or a trail, and he was probably the first to find it. He's an amazing storyteller - an important quality when spending the day together. There's no doubt you'll be enthralled by his life story. It's worth the price of admission alone. The tour was equally unforgettable. I felt safe with the gear provided and always had the support vehicle near if help was needed. The bikes are great quality and well maintained. Overall, awesome experience. Worth the price - there's a reason they're famous.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Jan and I read your review and could not stop tears coming to our eyes, we were filled with emotion. It has been a long journey for us, 30 years indeed! Amazing that after all those years, we can still touch people like you and are most proud that we haven't lost our touch. Thanks again for touching ours too!

This was, by far, the coolest adventure I've ever had. Starting at over 15,000ft was like being on the surface of the moon - above the vegetation line, so cold! Biking was easy and super fun; just rolling down the wide road! Then breathtaking rides across Andean planes and fields which was super easy and enjoyable.

We did this with my in-laws who are in their 60s, and our kids who are 10 and 12 yrs old, and everyone could do it.

Etiel, our guide, was so knowledgeable and helped everyone have a safe and good time.

Even finishing our Cotapaxi ride in a rainstorm, this day was so much fun and beautiful that I pronounced it one of the best days of my life! And we saw condors as we cycled around the plateau beneath the mountain. Our guide Jorge and our driver Patricio (who was a happy guy and good D) provided us with two perfect days. The quality of the bikes was excellent, the scenery amazing, and the rides challenging. Even lunch provided by the owner's wife was so good I brought home her recipe. After our day two ride to another Reserve further north where we road gorgeous woodsy trails that were once the original dirt road across the Andes, we relaxed in one of the prettiest hot springs I've ever seen--near Papallacta. Jen the owner is a fantastic person who runs a first class operation. I've recommended Biking Dutchman to everyone I know who is considering a trip to Ecuador. Our two days were a perfect interlude between a jungle stay in a lodge and then on to the Galapagos.

This was awesome: I cycle in NYC everyday, but I've never ridden down a volcano from 15,000 feet, but I loved every minute of it! Well-organized, awesome guide and driver, and the experience and environment are great. Happy to recommend this experience. Got in the truck around 7 am; back in Quito at 3 in the afternoon or so.

What a great trip! Riding uphill at 4000+ meters is a formidable challenge, but riding downhill is a blast! The terrain and scenery are spectacular! Thanks to our guide Roberto, our driver Cesar and everyone else at BikingDutchman for a world-class experience.

Wow. My son recommended this trip as a highlight of his previous trip to Quito. I never considered mountain biking before but after the trip I was sold on the whole thing. Starting at 14,000 feet it was cold but manageable. Most of the trip was a decent so we were using our breaks rather than legs. On the few uphills, I was winded at this altitude.

Rapidly picked up the process after some good instruction and drafting our guide. It was really fun. If you feel you can reasonable maneuver a bike, add this one to your bucket list.

The guides were really fun and helpful. They provided a healthy lunch too. GO FOR IT

Thank you so much for your opinion in the TRIP ADVISOR. For the last 28 years we have been providing tours to visitors to Ecuador. We could have chosen any type of tourism as -back then- there were not many options in our country, novice in tourism. We chose BIKING TOURS for many reasons: 1) Because as a Dutchman in Ecuador, Jan decided to make a living out of his passion; 2) Because we love our country deeply and want to show it to our visitors, in a friendly way; 3) We decided, already in 1991, that we did not want to spoil our Planet with mass tourism, and had a vision of a SUSTAINABLE, eco-friendly company, that brings development to the communities that we visit. Without even knowing it, we started a nouvelle way of traveling in Ecuador. We are proud of this and have never regretted. We hope that the future generations take our post. Thank you for sharing our vission!

Wow! What a trip with the Biking Dutchman. As the manager of a kayak and paddleboard outfitter in the U.S. I know a good tour when I see it, and this was it. Roberto, our easygoing and bilingual guide, picked us up directly from our hotel early in the morn and a short nap later and we were in Cotopaxi National Park. After lingering in the foothills for some photo ops and a hot cup of coca tea we were driven to the very base of Cotopaxi Mountain's glacier. The wind whipped, the air thinned and the view was beautiful. Soon we were on bikes zipping down the way we'd came while being patiently tailed by Roberto. We biked for 20+ miles yet never felt rushed, had an incredible and vegetarian lunch alongside pre-Incan ruins, and were glowing with joy and adrenaline the whole time. It was a tour to remember.

N.B. If you book directly with the Biking Dutchman on their website it will be cheaper for you and more of the profit will go directly to this small Ecuadorian business instead of Tripadvisor.

Good morning! It was a real pleasure for us to read such an awesome review. Our guide, Roberto, has been an incredible addition to our team and every time a tour is finished with excellent results, we are thankful to think that the BIKING DUTCHMAN will be able to transcend. As you so clearly stated, the tour is well thought and executed with all details and this will help us bounce back, as soon as lives resume and tourists visit us again.
