We were so pleased when Julia was guiding just the 2 of us thru some city streets which have bike lanes and bike paths for 30 km small group biking on busy city streets is mandatory in our opinion. She was very considerate and conscientious for our safety, and informative on the city's history a bit too much history for us in our opinion. You can see so much of the city on this bike tour, although Rio does get hot by mid day. Highly recommend this tour with Julia
Due to transportation issues from the cruise port, we arrived late at the tour starting location and missed the tour. Tour itinerary looked very interesting
Marko the host was excellent, very knowledgeable, fantastic way to get your bearings on the city, recommend it as soon as you arrive for this reason.
Our tour guide, Kosma, was amazing. It was a lot of fun and very informative. A great way to see Rio.
Our guide Philip was fantastic. A former journalist, he has excellent knowledge of Rio. We loved his stories. He attended closely to group safety But the number one reason we give you a thumbs up, Philip, is the way you helped us when I ran into trouble with the Rio heat. Philip took care of our bikes and helmets and hailed us a taxi. He was so kind. Philip, you are the best!

Guide was helpful and not rushing us! The tour really allowed you to see many spots of the city and I was very impressed with the bike lane constructions of Rio de Janeiro!
Fabulous way to see the city. Highly recommend the tour. We are a couple in our mid 60s and found the cycling easy and the guide wonderful.
Probably the best value tour for the money in Rio. I suggest you do this early in your trip to get a good overview. Great way to see the city, we covered a lot of ground and there are some great bike paths
Great tour on seeing parts of Rio especially of Lapa Step. However wish told us about the 28 Km bike ride. The traffic was crazy during the Olympics. I would have prepared more
We had a wonderful morning of sightseeing around Rio with Anastacia as our guide.Saw some places that we would not normally have been able to get to. Well worth while adventure!
A relaxing, well-paced bike tour of the city. My tour guide Gisely was an encyclopedia of information of the places that we visited, and gave plenty of time to pause and revel in the beautiful views.
Highly recommended for everyone staying in Rio!
Great scenic tour which covered a lot of ground and sights thanks to being on bike. Our tour guide was friendly and had great knowledge about Rio.
Lovely morning, saw some good sights, guide was knowledgeable. The riding was very gentle, no need to worry if you're not too fit.
Our guide was patient and we were able to see a side of the city that we could not have seen on foot.
