    I would highly recommend this trip. Ricardo was my guide for the day and as I was the only one booked that day I had a personal guide for the morning. I had a beautiful morning with stunning views around Rio. A totally memorable experience.

    This tour was great. Ricardo was absolutely amazing. He is full of energy and truly knowledgeable of the city.The Bike ride was pretty easy and this is a great way to see the city of Rio in just a few hours. I would recommend this tour to be one of the first tours you do when visiting Rio so you are able to learn and familiarize yourself more with the area. Great city tour to learn about the different neighborhoods and definitely fun thing to do while in Rio.

    This is a fantastic tour! Reserved last minute and being my first bike tour didn't know what to expect. What a great decision did I make!

    A small group met with Ricardo, our guide, on posto 8 in Ipanema where bikes were handed out. Ricardo took us on a fantastic ride through Ipanema, Leblon and Copacabana beaches. I was also surpised to discover a hidden beach called Vermelha meaning red were we stopped for a while to get a fresh cold coconut.

    Rio is a fantastic city, it is hard to keep concentrated on the road with so many beautiful sights. We saw the Christ and the Sugarloaf and really enjoyed the cycling arounf the lagoon.

    Our guide was engaging and fun to be with, he shared several interesting facts about the city with great bits of humor added every here and there. The group had a great laugh throughout the ride and some of had lunch together afterwards.

    I can't recommend this tour enough.

    Ricardo took us on a great cycle tour around south Rio. Really a good way to get a feel for the city when you arrive.
