    L'esperienza più bella che abbiamo fatto a Rio. Il tour di 7 ore con Ulisses è stato superlativo e ci ha fatto vedere i quartieri della zona sud e del centro come difficilmente li avremmo conosciuti utilizzando altri mezzi di locomozione. Abbiamo avuto una serie di richieste "extra" che lui ha esaudito alla perfezione adattando il percorso, sempre in totale sicurezza. Ottimo pranzo in un ristorante tipico. Giornata stupenda.

    Wonderful Bike Tour of Rio We love to take bike tours of the major cities we visit throughout the world. Marco was our guide for an excellent tour of Rio. We biked from 9 AM – 4 PM throughout the entire city and were able to see many of the main attractions (Sugerloaf, beaches, harbors, Christ the Redeemer, Cemetery, downtown buildings, etc.) from different vantage points. Marco was a very personable and really helped us learn about the city that he knows and loves. Great tour! Highly recommend!

    Abbiamo fatto l’Ultimate Rio Tour della durata di circa 7 ore. E’ un tour molto adatto anche a chi non è un ciclista allenato perché prevede molte fermate (anche per il pranzo incluso) e perché è su percorso pianeggiante. La nostra guida è stata molto brava e l’escursione è stata veramente piacevole. Lo consigliamo

    Two of us did the full day tour with Ulysses. Bikes were fine - single speed and not for the Tour de France but good for riding around Rio for a a few hours. Most of the route was on cycle track and very flat. The route was interesting and Ulysses was fun and informative.

    It was one of the best bike tours I've ever had!!! Rio de Janeiro is gorgeous city with a lot of well prepared bike lanes. Marco showed us around and shared many cool stories. I really enjoyed Ultimate Rio Tour & I'd like to do the tour again.

    Our tour was the Ultimate Rio Full Day. An adventure it was. Marco our guide was great. The food was delicious! If you don’t have much time in Rio then this is the tour for you. You get to see the whole city & scope out where you would next like to go & visit next.

    Philip led our tour of two around the city for 8 hours (we ran over time)! He was an awesome tour guide, we had a really good time and learned a lot about Rio. I highly recommend this company. The route was comfortable and flat. Perfect way to see most of the city in a safe, fun way!

    This is such a great way to see Rio, and much more interesting and comfortable (in my eyes) than trudging around on foot in the heat. Our guide, Matt, spoke perfect English and was really thoughtful and friendly - keeping an eye on us at junctions and crossings, and ensuring we had stops along the way. If you're ok to ride a bike then you should be fine with the pace - the amount of cycle lanes are a pleasant surprise and it's a pretty flat route. Bikes are very good and comfy, and helmets are optional. My parents are in their 60s and were completely fine and found this to be a highlight of their trip. An interesting and healthy 3 hours!

    We did the Ultimate Bike Tour, it was a fantastic way to cover Rio. The bike's were so comfortable and the riding was very relaxed, I was surprised how much of Rio offers bike lanes away from traffic. I recommend doing this tour early in your trip. Our guide was fantastic and also had us laughing lots.
