REAL TESTIMONIALS

Hired three bikes for 17 days to tour around Ecuador. These guys were fantastic and helped us with every aspect of our trip. When we had a problem with one of the bikes they went out of their way to resolve the issue and get us on our way again with minimum disruption.
These guys provide an absolute 5 Star service and real nice to deal with. They have excellent bikes, top quality gear and including GPS. I did 1500km on the bike and was an amazing way to see the main sights of Ecuador and couldn’t have been better. Highly highly recommended!!
Just finished 21 days of guided bike touring with EBR through Peru and Ecuador! Even came back with some amazing video footage courtesy of our guide Pancho! They took great pains to ensure we had a great trip, I would highly recommend them to anyone!
We covered 1200 km on motorbikes, guided tour, with lead and support truck. We did have flats and a couple of mechanical challenges which were addressed professionally. Quality of service and the beauty of the country. Pancho and Carlos were excellent.
Excellent endroit pour louer des motos pour un trip en Equateur. L'équipe d'Equator bike, sera vous conseiller ou vous guider pour votre trip. Il dispose d'un choix de motos assez large. Ce petit pays d'Amérique du sud, vous surprendra par sa beautés, sa gastronomie, et la gentillesse des habitants
Ich bin zufällig in Baños auf David und seine Tour gestoßen und habe mich spontan anschließen dürfen. Hätte zwei aufregende, lustige und vor allem gut organisierte zwei Tage in Baños mit David von Sleipner und den Beiden, die die Tour ursprünglich gebucht hatten.
