This was an amazing day. Our guide Neil was great, he was friendly, he gave us warnings when their were obstacles in the road, and he was very clear in his safety instructions. The bikes we had were really good, and were clearly better than other groups we saw. The meal at the end was pretty good, and the hot showers were great. This was the highlight of Bolivia for my wife and I, and was much better than a similar bike ride we took in Peru.
Fantastic tour, safe, organized, and truly excellent, knowledgable guide with Scotty from Scotland. Highly highly recommend this tour. Brand new bikes through Kona and excellent gear, guidance and equipment.
This tour, with Gravity La Paz was amazing! Our guide Noel was fantastic a really nice guy and the perfect combination of fun and professional which is important considering the potential safety hazards of this activity. The bike was in good condition and appropriate for the ride, the optional safety gear gloves, pants and jacket were much appreciated and the compulsory helmet properly fitted. Any assistance required was given including bike repairs for flat tyres and medical attention. Our bus driver Willy was awesome, who followed us as the safety vehicle the whole way down and then took us back up Death Road in the dark afterwards! The snacks and lunch provided were great and plenty of water was available to refill bottles. The ride itself was amazing - the scenery incredible and the degree of difficulty moderately challenging however the potential consequences quite serious. I would definitely suggest that to enjoy this experience to the fullest, participants should be fairly familiar with and confident on a bike. An excellent Bolivian adventure!

The death road tour was amazing, and I would recommend it to anyone considering doing it. There were lots of other people offering similar tours, but this one stood out they were well organised, focused on the safety of everyone in the group and had great quality equipment bikes, clothes etc. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and always ready to help. They took care to make sure that everyone in the group which had a variety of ages and skill was comfortable and went the extra mile during the cycle to keep the group together, and briefed on what each section of Death Road entailed. The ride itself is mostly downhill, so fitness isn't a huge factor. With steep hills and lots of turns, this trip is great for people looking for a bit of adventure. Really glad I booked this trip, was a highlight of my trip so far!
This was my favorite day of my trip to the salt plains and la paz. It was so much fun and thrilling. A must do if you are ever in La Paz.
This is a very well organized tour. It's for adrenaline junkies, mountain bikers, and really, anyone afraid of heights that wants to challenge themselves. I fall in the latter category. My husband, meanwhile, falls in the former. We lucked out with the weather and were treated to clear skies and breathtaking views -- in January, no less. Our guides were Robbie and William, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. Our driver was Cumpa, and does he know how to drive!
From start to finish, the tour was wonderful. Robbie was excellent about allaying my fears of falling off the side of a cliff. They're total pros. On the downhill ride down the WMDR, you stop at 8-10 points along the road, where Robbie gives you a brief overview of what might be coming -- is there a wipeout corner, a waterfall, a stream? He tells you all about what to expect so that you can take it as safely as possible. The other great thing is that they don't rush you -- you can go at your own pace. There's always someone at the front of the group, and then a guide at the back of the group usually, unless they need to go up ahead to take pictures of the group. If there is no guide at the back, you can rest assured that the van is following and will come to your aid if something goes awry which nothing did!.
All in all, it was an amazing day and I was able to overcome my fears and feel a sense of accomplishment. Safety is Gravity's biggest concern and it's absolutely evident in the way their tours are organized. We would definitely do another trip with Robbie and crew again, the next time we visit Bolivia.
Awesome. The ride down was great. The van ride up after was truly terrifying. Robbie, the guide, was very professional and safety-minded. Also, he was very informative. When I go back to Bolivia, I will definitely do this again.
An awesome day with beautiful views over the incredible landscapes around death road. Gravity was a good and serious company with great equipment and the bikes was perfect for this roads. Good lunch at the end of the tour. The guide made us feel really safe. Definitely worth the extra bucks!
Excellent in every way. Amazing ride, amazing views, amazing guide Matt from Gravity. Everything
Brilliant fun, great guide.
