This was a great activity for our family of 5! The organizers were very helpful in arranging the right bikes for our 3 kids (including one kid who sat on a seat on mom’s bike). The tour was interesting and fun, and gave us a great flavor of Lima….way more than we would have seen without the tour. Highly recommend!

Bike in great condition, cool guide, nice experience as you get to see the pretty and not so pretty side of Lima. The Morro hill is not for the faint of heart! The tour takes you through the streets and the bike lane on the malecón. That’s the only thing I wished I knew beforehand.

Tour was great. Guide was very friendly and communicative. Tour is not hard, these neighbourhoods are mostly flat. At the end of tour before going back to the shop, we had an ice cream as a refreshment.

Great opportunity to see more of Lima. Would have liked longer and farther but cycling is my thing. For a tourist, this was great. Highly recommend the lemonade at the ‘coffee stop’.

Beautiful tour! Very friendly tour guide! Beautiful scenery, which you will no see on city tour( it is just different)! Very recommended! Thank you! We really enjoy!
