This was a great way to start my Rio vacation. Not very taxing and I got to see the important parts of the coastline and downtown and the route was very scenic. Bruno the guide was extremely helpful. He went out of his way to make sure the trip went smoothly more than one occasion. He tailored the trip to my interest history of which he is very knowledgeable. Also he took special care to tell which route he will take and any things to keep in mind. The sit out with coconut water in between was heavenly. Plus he is a great photographer and took some professional level pictures from him phone. All in all a must do.

Was in Rio for a week. Even though I had felt I had seen a lot already the tour had shown me more than I imagined. I got to see Rio from all different aspects and the guide Bruno was very knowledgeable, friendly and made the bike journey enjoyable and memorable. The groups are small and manageable. Thank you Bruno! (Downtown tour)

Being from the Netherlands we were immediately attracted by this tour through Rio using our default mode of transportation: the bike. We were not disappointed, it was great to start our stay in Rio with this tour, because we got to know so many neighborhoods. Bruno is an excellent guide, very friendly, very knowledgeable, and answers any questions you may have. The quality of the bikes is a bit less than what we're used to, but hey what can you expect in Rio. We can definitely recommend this tour and Bruno as a guide!

My wife and I enjoyed this bike tour to the Favela of Santa Marta with Bruno. There is not much riding to get there but Bruno stops every so often to tell you about Rio and its history. Once at the Favela you are introduced to one of its residents who then takes you on a tour of the favela and tells you all about its history. The tour guide even takes you back to his house for a drink. It is a great insight into how people live in the favela and exceptionally informative. Bruno speaks excellent English and does not rush or clock watch. An excellent tour and would highly recommend it to anyone. My only comment is that the bikes could do with some renovation, however, this did not distract from what was a great afternoon.

I love cycling when I visit a new city as I feel its better than a Big Bus Tour and Bike in Rio did not disappoint. I took the Flamenco Park tour with Bruno and it was great. Its great to be with a local and I felt like I got a local's perspective of Rio and all its history especially its football history as Bruno himself is a football fan. Rio has great cycling tracks which makes it a pleasure to cycle around. After the tour we even had a couple of beers with Bruno who gave us some more insights into Rio. I wish I had more time in Rio and I would have taken the Lapa downtown trip as well. Highly recommended.

We have just spent the last two days with Luis and Bruno and cannot recommend them enough. You do not have to be a bike enthusiast infact they cater for all abilities. They catered for our every need changing the itinerary as and when we wanted. They offer great bike tours which we did but we also did a tour visiting the Sugar Loaf. Christ the Redeemer and also the Santa Marta Favela. We learnt so much about the history of Rio but also about the customs and the people so much more than you would ever learn from a normal tour guide. The favela tour was an absolute highlight for us we were shown the favela by Thiago ( Bruno arranged this too ) and learnt about their struggles and highs and would never have had this if it hasn't have been for the guys from Rio Bike Tours. If in doubt book book book because they will tailor the tour to your requirements. It's the only way to see Rio!!!!!!!

Tour was cancelled without any contact with us. We are stuck looking for other options. Called the contact number over 5 times but all calls went straight to the voicemail. Very unorganized and unprofessional.

Hi

I did the 3 tours with Bruno. 2 of them In one day which filled my day from 9am to around 7pm. It was fantastic. I like to cycle now and then but i'm not a fanatic. This trip can be done by people like me who are not that fit. It's mostly flat with just a few small easy inclines. I think it's the best way to see a City. Coach tours aren't that good because you can't see things properly and you are stuck in traffic for too long. Walking is okay if the area you want to see is small but with a bike you can cruise around covering a large area. We stopped for drinks at various points and we got to see the lot. I felt like i was part of what was going on in the City rather than just observing it from a car or coach. Bruno also loves football so if you want to know anything about the Brazil team or the various Rio clubs he's the guy!

We have done bike tours in other major cities in the world & were keen to do one in Rio. The booking process online was easy & Bruno got back to me quickly to confirm the tour. Bruno is a lovely guy who spoke excellent English & was very informative. We did the tour that took in Copacabana & Ipanema Beaches & Lago Rodrigo de Freitas. Bruno took us to the best viewing spots & was even happy to make a stop outside of his normal tour to enable me to watch horses being ridden in a nearby equestrian park. As this is the off season we were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour, but we are sure you would have a great time with Bruno even if the tour was full. The bikes were good to ride & the cycling paths around Rio make it easy. Riding back down the beach front on dusk with all of the people out & about was fantastic - this tour was a real highlight of our stay in Rio. Sue & Geoff

I did 3 tours in Rio... a walking tour, a favela tour and this bike tour. This was by far my favorite... I usually tour a city on bike my first visit and of all the bike tours I've done- I believe this is one of my favorites! I've also recommended this tour to all my friends who pass through Rio. So my point is- if you can spare 3 hours- this tour is highly recommended. Bruno is a wonderful friendly guide and his tour offers the perfect balance of history, conversation, quiet biking time and of course, perhaps of utmost importance- he takes you to places you are not likely to find on your own. What more can I say? It really is first class:)
