This was the best way to see Lima! Small groups it was just me, but they keep it under 6 allow for personal interactions. My tour guide - Arturo - was very knowledgeable. He was great in giving information, but not dwelling on it. We was always making sure that I was ok by giving me the plan for the next few blocks, making sure I understood the traffic laws, asking if the speed was ok, etc. I could not have asked for a better experience. As one that does not spend much time in large cities, thanks to his thoughtfulness, I never was concerned. Best deal!!
Arturo was our guide and did an excellent job. My dad age 71 and I age 34 did the tour together. Arturo was on time, gave us a few choices for the route we wanted to take, and did a great job educating us on the things we were seeing, the neighborhood nuances, and the famous sites. The path we went on was mostly paved, secure bike paths. For 1-2 km of the total ride about 25 total km, we were riding on the street surfaces with other vehicles. Just know this going into the ride. Also, the climb up to the replica of Christ the Redeemer is a strenuous climb, but well worth the effort!
Nice bike ride from Miraflores to Barranco and to the Cruz in Chorillos. You will get to see places you probably wouldn and #39;t discover on your own. The guide Beto is really fun and knows a lot about the city, he makes your trip worth going!
I would highly recommend this tour, we saw a lot of the city and the views were awesome. It was a lot of fun, and our tour guide was great. If you are in reasonable shape the one big climb will not even phase you. Bike were in good shape as well.
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.
