Kral was a great guide, leading us through traffic with confidence and ease, and it’s mostly in cycle lanes for a safe ride.. The route itself is mostly flat, except for the hill up to the obelisk. There’s a nice drink included too in a really lovely location. This bike tour gives you a good overall introduction to the layout of Lina and three of its districts.

Kral is an excellent guide. He guided us safely along the bike paths and streets. He is also very helpful. Took very good care of my partner when she aborted the Morro Solar climb. He organized a safe place where we could meet them again when we left.

It was a blast, the guide did it really well and spoke super english . It is definitely worth the money, would recommend it to everybody who is the first time in Lima.

Bike ride stopped at all sites as advertised and provided plenty of time for photos. Easy ride except for those that chose to ride up to El Morro Hill.

The bike tour was great, a good way to see some of Lima when you don’t have much time. Highly recommend.
