This was a fantastic way to begin my Rio experiences. The tour guy was fantastic starting from the bike shop to the Copacabana/Sugar Loft Mountain to the back streets. Don't forget the wonderful drinking coconut juice.

Excellent tour with Max. English speaking guide. Provided great history on Rio and was very pleasant. It was only two of us in the tour. 4 hours in length. He makes stops if you need them. Definitely not for the disabled or those with severe knee and back conditions. I would recommend 100%. Thank you max!!

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

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! Shelagh and Ken
