A bike tour in Santiago downtown area is a fantastic way to get the feeling of this nice city. The people at La Bicicleta Verde are truly experts on the topic, not only how to keep the whole group safe, but knowing the area, details, gastronomic and local details which makes it fenomenal. Great tour very enjoyable.

Santiago struggles with pollution, so biking STGO is a greener and more efficient way to enjoy the city. Tonight you are the engine to your bicycle, leaving only green wheel prints behind. Our goal is to see sites unreachable by bus and share our personal experience of Chile’s culture and history. Our guides are bilingual, love STGO, and do not deliver generic, scripted tours! We refuse to be that ‘Same Tour, Different City’ tour company. We tell guide applicants to explain why they LOVE Santiago… if they can’t, we won’t interview them! Our aim is to inspire you to opt for bike tours and eco-friendly options wherever you go. If you’re still not convinced by this tour that’s ok, we got maaaad references. Check us out on TripAdvisor.

We have just enjoyed a brilliant morning with Marcela. The tour was so interesting and fun and takes you to places you may not have the confidence or knowledge to explore without a guide- eg. into the heart of La Vega market which was amazing!
Very fun way to discover Santiago. The tour is interesting as it shows different neighbourhood and areas that you wouldn’t know by yourself. I would definitely do it again!
