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.

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!
