Really good look at the interesting parts of Rio plus some good easy exercise. Marco was excellent! & a fountain of knowledge & good English language. We felt really safe in the great bike lanes throughout central Rio.

Great experience. Dutch tour guide introduced us to the Brazil and Rio history. Very talkative and nice person. Famous beaches, Lapa and Selaron stairs. Plus cold coconut water and caphirinha during the pitstops ;)

I highly recommend Rio by Bike. Ulysses is a great guide - he knows everything about Rio! He was also very tolerant of a 63-year-old fat guy (me) who couldn't keep up with the group. One of the highlights of my trip to fantastic Rio.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful

Hi, Somehow we missed your question. Normally Tripadvisor gives us a notification about it, but we didn't receive it until now! Luckily there were some of earlier clients that provided some information already. Regards, Jan
