Great experience with friends and family
LAN_L, Apr 2023
Great tour for 1st exporting Manila. We had fun ridding bikes around the old city and learned quite a lot history about the country. Thanks for the professional team, the bike ride is fun and safe at the same time.( do not recommend going around city by bike on your own! It is kinds of scary to ride on the road with no bike lane)
Fun tour, learned a lot!
Elyssa_S, Mar 2023
My boyfriend and I only had a day to spend in Manila and wanted to do something to learn more about the history of the city. This was the perfect tour! The bamboo bikes were easy to ride, we learned a lot and our guide was awesome! A lot was packed into the tour without feeling like it was rushed. And the ice cream at the end was a nice treat!
Nice trip in old center of Manila
Petra_W, Mar 2023
Interesting history told by nice guide. Couple of nice sites to see. The bikes are great and the road very easy.
Well worth the trip!
Allison_R, Feb 2023
John was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. We were a large group so I also appreciate that ecotours had other employees assisting traffic so we could keep together. They also give back to their community with employee indigenous and disabled. Bravo!

Limited, very easy and peaceful bike ride. Camille was energetic and knowledgeable. A nice way to spend your morning.
Great for kids
Jamie_P, Dec 2022
My kids, ages 6-12, really enjoyed this tour because they could ride bikes between each stop. The stops were also interesting and not too long, so they could explore a little. The entire tour was about 3 hours and we ended with ice cream.
Amazing experience!!!
Valentina_P, Nov 2022
Super fun experience, the staff at Bamboo Bicycles is extremely prepared, caring and funny. Cycling is the best way to explore Intramuros while enjoying some breeze and escaping the ever present humidity. This experience gave us the chance to connect with the other participants, it was a blast and truly one of the reasons why traveling is a life’s joy. Highly recommended!
Good Guide Great Bike
Anchalee_G, Sep 2022
A knowledgeable guide and a great bike...make a perfect trip happen 🥰. Highly recommend for anyone who is looking for doing an exercise while on vacation.
No refund if one participant is not able to show up and extra charges for using special (tricycles) bikes.
Bayani_B, Jul 2022
It was a good experience although there was no way to get a refund when one of the pre-booked person was not able to make it. While the issue did not materialise (i.e. because some were not able to show up), I was told after asking, as couple of days prior, that if some were not able to drive the bicycles, using one of the tri-cycles would incur an extra charge. I did not know this when I was booking as the site mentioned that "everyone" was welcome to join the tour. It was not mentioned that those who can't ride a bike on their own need to pay extra.
Just learning the history...
Sal_D, Jul 2022
Just learning the history of Manilla . Riding the bamboo bicycle to see the city and the culture was awesome!
Fun tour with good exercise.
Spenser_P, May 2022
Good experience with the History of the Philippines and it’s fun riding the bike around the city. Guide was knowledgeable and personable.
Awesome tour when in Manila.
Frank_R, May 2022
We took the afternoon with the tour guide Russel. He was very freidnyl and knowledgable, made the tour fun as well by injecting some humor. We took the full tour so we saw about 6 or 7 historical sites I believe. It was nice getting to the sites on bike, nice little breeze from the hot sun. You also were given ample time at each stop to take pictures. At the end the cold towel and ice cream was nice. The tour was great, I would highly reccomend anyone wanted to tour around the intramuros area.
Bambike Fun

Intramuros Cycling
Tanicka_D, Mar 2020
This tour was GREAT. My guide was Marlowe and he did a fantastic job. Very knowledgeable. It was the right amount of time and all the sites were interesting. One person in my group was not comfortable with a bike and they had a covered buggy that she could get in. The complimentary water and sweet treat were a great addition.
Awesome bicycling trip!
Barbara_P, Jan 2020
Angelica was an excellent tour guide. She was extremely well educated on the country’s history and a wealth of interesting facts. Bicycling was not at all strenuous as we made frequent stops at interesting sights. Traffic was somewhat crazy, but the Bamboo Bike staff occumpanying the tour did a great job of holding up traffic and ensuring that our entire group was able to cross intersections safely. Very reasonably priced and an overall super trip. Angelica treated us to delicious ice cream at the end of our trip and we all were given a metal water bottle to take home. GREAT CHOICE!
Really excellent tour in the old...
