Punctual, super friendly and helpful, they helped me with advice during my stay in Lima, the tour is on the cycle path and through amazing viewpoints. It is an excellent tour that I recommend to do something different from a walking tour, you get to know those areas of the city in a different way. The plus of the photo is wonderful to take with me that additional printed memory of my pleasant experience. Service and attention 10/10

Great tour. Get away from the traffic whilst still seeing the city. Much better than sitting in a traffic jam on a cramped minivan. The bikes were of a fantastic standard and safety helmets provided. Nice stop after Jesus hill for cold drinks. Kral the guide gave a nice amount of information and made any road crossings super safe. I’m not a bike rider but made it round the route OK apart from pushing up Jesus hill.

It was a great tour. Kral is very empathetic and humorous. The bikes are very high quality and easy to ride. Kral went to great lengths to ensure that everyone was safe. In between we ate some very delicious ice cream, which was included in the price. I can highly recommend this tour. :)

Very nice activity! Good way to visit! Excellent guide, refreshments appreciated and schedule respected! Be careful when climbing the statue, it's not for everyone... it requires a minimum of physical fitness and endurance but you can wait at the bottom!

It was very fun from the place where we met, the people in charge are very kind and friendly, at all times they explained to us every detail of what we would do, the truth is that I recommend it since it is a great way to get to know part of Lima .
