The history of MTB Tours started in 1994. After working at many different jobs, I realized that, by organizing bike trips, I was really going to love my job. I found that I was able to concentrate in one activity all of the things that I have loved to do since I was a child: sports, exploring nature, being free from the big city rhythm, meeting different kinds of people from different places, sharing with them an outdoor experience, speaking different languages and helping others to learn about the environment and sports. I decided to study physical education to improve my knowledge about the human body while it is doing sports and to provide professional answers to my clients. That is the main reason why I decided to start MTB Tours.
It was a beautiful opportunity since there weren't many companies on the road. I guess that MTB Tours was one of the first bike tour organizations in South America.
Our philosophy is to provide personal quality and to pay attention to details. You can travel to many places and with lots of people, but we think you will remember the trips that were leaded by guides that worried and took care of you personally. After a bike tour, you will have made fifteen very good friends.
Customers are used to our professionalism and attention to details. Every tour includes challenges that will help you reflect back upon the trip and realize that you had an awesome experience.
Our customers always remind us that they continue to travel with us because they trust that no matter where we go, they will have a great experience surrounded by excellent routes, challenging landscapes, tasty South American meals and a beautiful group atmosphere. We believe in human quality, organization, creativity, supported by details to let our clients see how comfortable they can feel with us. I guess those are the main reasons why they come back. Professionalism and knowledge with regards to the business and field aspects of our work is another very important reason why our guides are considered to be our greatest strengths.
We run mountain bike tours focusing on the average person that loves to participate in sports on a frequent basis and also loves to get out of the city and enjoy both nature and sports at the same time. We don't require the customer to be a professional mountain biker, but we need him or her to have a decent level of fitness and to enjoy the adventure he or she has decided to participate in. We offer different ability levels so, depending on where do we go, there will be varying levels of fitness requirement.
By the way, our commitment is to give the best mountain bike tours along Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and Chile. All our tours are lead by local guides and by trilingual guides that will help you feel at home, all our tours are powered by a local knowledge that will take you to the heart and spirit of the region by tasting the food, by meeting with local people, sailing into theirs language, looking into their culture, and visiting the surrounding areas. All our tours were selected based on incredibly beautiful landscapes, culture, scenic and challenging roads and single tracks, and unexplored beauty. Our South American tours represent areas that cover the Andes and range from Argentina to Chile, explore the most beautiful single tracks of the amazing Patagonia, explore the European influence and rich history, meet the local people, taste the charm of Buenos Aires, Punta del Este or Rio de Janeiro, and kiss the beautiful white sand beaches of Brazil.
