What to expect
Meet your cycling guide near Copacabana. Listen to a safety briefing and orientation, then get fitted for your bike and helmet.  Hop on your bike and start pedaling, headed for your first destination: the Botafogo neighborhood, stopping at Urca and Praia Vermelha on the way. Pause at Botafogo's beach for great views of Sugar Loaf Mountain and a coconut water with a well-known neighborhood character. After a short rest and with your electrolytes restored, continue to Flamengo Park, South America's largest leisure park. Join the other cyclists in riding around the park, viewing locals at leisure. Head for downtown Rio to get a Brazilian history lesson while riding down streets, past buildings, and through squares that played host to important events. See the Imperial House, Tiradentes Square, and Candelária Church.  Say goodbye to your guide and leave with recommendations for restaurants, museums, nightlife, football matches and more.

Tour organizer did not show up! Fraud?
Nov 2019
The tour was confirmed and payment was made several weeks in advance.

We waited at the meeting point for over 40 minutes but the tour organizer never showed up. We tried to call them and write texts on whatsapp but got no replies. The owner of the whatsapp account blocked us after several attempts to call them.

This company is not running anymore, at best. Or it is a fraud. We can't tell.

However, Viator was quick to reply when we reported the issue and provided a complete refund.

Do yourselves a favour and do not book with this organizer as it will just waste your time.

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.

As a Brazilian that has lived abroad since the age of 10 y/o and would every few years visit my family in Rio, I learned more about the city in half a day than all the times I've been here. Thank you for the amazing experience! Highly recommended.

Fantastic option to explore the city, led by an amazing guy
Nov 2018 • Couples
We booked the Rio City Bike Tour in advance of our trip as we did something similar in San Francisco, and just had the perfect day in Rio. Apart from getting to know the many different, golden views of the city in a healthy way, Bruno was just the perfect fit to leed us through the day. His knowledge of the city and its history, combined with the skills to transport it to you in an easy, accessible way (as a former teacher!) was exceptional. To top it off, he is just a friendly, open and happy guy.

The tour lasted for a little more than five hours, even if it was adverted with just four hours. As he didn't have another tour in the afternoon, Bruno took his time and we were able to ride in a relaxed way without hurry. We went across several famous beaches and areas like Copacabana, Botafogo, Flamengo, the city center, the museum of tomorrow or the port. Whenever we wanted we could stop for taking pictures, and Bruno himself had some places too, where he uses to take pictures of his guests while riding their bikes - for example in front of the famous Sugar Loaf. On our way back to Copacabana we enjoyed our first coconut in Rio, which was included in the package. At the end of the tour, Bruno even drove us to our hotel in his car, as he had to go in that direction anyway.

You don't need to bring anything except for yourself, suncream and water. You get bikes, which are good quality and comfortable.

If you wan't to explore Rio on a bike, we can strongly recommend this tour to you.

Great way to get to know Rio and amazing guide
Sep 2018 • Couples
My wife and I were in Rio for 3 days, as part of a bigger trip in Brazil, so we wanted a quick, but comprehensive tour of Rio. For this purpose, Bruno was fantastic; his bikes were high quality and easy to ride and the route of the tour was a great combination of historic and aesthetic.

You can also tell that Bruno doesn't just follow a standard script, he tailors the tour to your interest. His knowledge of the city and its history was amazing, but he is also a history buff who - if you are interested - can talk to you in greater depth about Brazilian/Carioca history and politics, more than any other guide I've used during my travels in the past. He is also a naturally conversational and friendly guy and always makes you feel welcome and safe in Rio.

I would definitely recommend Bruno and his bike tour to anyone interested in learning and seeing more of the diversity, history and culture that Rio has to offer!

Fantastic way to see the sights !
What an enjoyable time we had with our guide Bruno. Leisurely pace as we make our way from Copacabana to Botafogo and then along the cycle paths around Guanabara Bay and Flamengo Park stopping to explain the history of the founding of Brazil.
Bruno is very easy going and extremely knowledgeable.
We head into the vity to the square, Cinelandia, the aqueduct and the Selaron steps.
So much fun and a nice stop half way back for a coconut drink.
Highlight of our stay in Rio.
Thankyou Bruno

Great for an overview of Rio on your first day
Aug 2018 • Family
We did the sunset tour on our first afternoon to get a feeling for the city and it was well worth it. Bruno is a great guy, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about current and past history (he also gave us some welcome tips on where to eat!). The cycle paths around the city are well planned and easy to manage (even for the 11 year old in our group). Numerous stops to relax, take in the views and learn something. Couldn't have imagined a better start to our 3-day trip. Thanks again Bruno!

City Tour
A huge shout out to Bruno! Our private tour with Bruno gave us an opportunity to experience many of Rio’s iconic landmarks while learning about Brazil’s history. We encountered monkeys on our tour which the kids loved. Bruno was warm and friendly. He went beyond his duties helping us plan the rest of our holiday!! Thank you, thank you.
