The tour guide was engaging, fun, knowledgeable and was very nice towards everyone. We went through some beautiful areas that deserve to be seen. Fell in love with the Malecon. Would 100 book again!
Excellent bike tour, one of the best bike ride I have ever done. Beto the guide was wonderful and awesome! best value to see the city. I will do it again!
I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Lima. The tour guide, Beto, was so kind and considerate to our need. My daughter and I are not the bikers. In fact, last time we biked was couple of years ago. When beto learned that, he know what alternative route we needed to take instead of steep uphill ride. He made sure we are not intimidated or feel rushed. The view of the ocean side and Bohemian side was GREAT! I recommend this tour to any of my friends who will be visiting Lima.
wonderful guide and great tour
Friendly guide who showed us neighborhoods we wouldn't have normally gone to. It was a holiday and there was a parade which was an enjoyable experience, but rather than ride around it or park the bikes and wander about, the guide made us walk our bikes through the crowd.
I would recommend the Lima Bike Tour: Along the Cliffs and Hike ride El Morro to anyone with a spare day in Lima. When I arrived at the tour office I was quite surprised that I was the only one that had booked. Some other tours I have booked previously required a minimum number of tour members. Arturo was a great tour guide and was quite knowledgeable of the sights along the route from Miraflores to Chorrillos via Barranco. I clocked up about 25 km16 miles with 640 vertical metres 2,100 vertical feet of climbing. The climbing was a number of climbs and small ramps. The climb from the coast to monument was less than 100 metres at 4 av gradient. If you ride regularly don't forget to pack your gloves and don't forget to apply the sunscreen as you will be in the sun for a few hours. The only disappointment was that we did not ride on the gravel trail to the towers at the top of Solar Hill. There are plenty of sights to see along the route as well as the bigger monuments on El Morro.
The bike guide was very friendly and helpful. The problem was the traffic. This is no city to go on a bike ride. Not only too much vehicle traffic but there were too many pedestrians and other bikers. We could have almost as walked as fast as we biked.
The one good time was the hill going to the Christ statue. For a non-biker, it was intense and yet exhilarating to get to the top.
