Full description
Get your cycle on with this two-wheeled journey through the amazing Lima Bay. Much more than just a Lima city tour, this epic bike adventure will show you all kinds of hidden gems inside the city and outside of it too. From the old to the artistic, get ready to see a side to Lima you’ve never seen before. A friendly guide will pick you up from your hotel in the center of Miraflores area or, if you’re staying elsewhere, at the front door of the Virgen Milagrosa Church in Kennedy Park. After a quick safety briefing from your local guide, it’s time to hop on your bike and follow the Malecón Cisneros path to the Parque del Amor (Park of Love), reminiscent of Gaudi’s work and dedicated to all things love and lovers. Soak up the dreamy atmosphere and admire the romance-inspired statues, including the fantastic “El Beso” sculpture by Peruvian artist Victor Delfin. Your journey will then take you onwards towards the bohemian district of Barranco, a lively a vibrant area full of artists, musicians, and writers. Stop for a short walk to snap some pictures of the neighborhood’s murals, street art, and Lima’s own Bridge of Sighs. Then it’s time to pedal up to Morro Solar, one of the hills surrounding the city where you can take in a stunning view of the shimmering Lima Bay – an unmissable sight and one of the best things to do in Lima. Circle back to Miraflores, and as your tour comes to a close, your local guide will be happy to point you in the direction of more cool spots in this neighborhood, or tell you how to find your way back to your accommodation.

Fun tour!

The tour was a lot of fun and Tito was a very knowledgeable guide. My wife was a bit apprehensive about the ride but Tito put her at ease very quickly. She did very well. We toured the Barranco and rode along the Malacon. The scenery was beautiful and the exercise moderate. I would highly recommend this tour.

Tour de vélo très interessant.-

Ce tour de vélo combine à la fois la côte du Pacifique et trois quartiers de Lima. Le guide, Rudolfo nous conduit tout d’abord en véhicule en haut de la montagne où se trouve la statue du Christ du pacifique, pour ensuite redescendre en vélo avec une vue magnifique. On traverse les quartier de Chorillos (pêcheurs), Barranco (bohème) et Miraflores. Rudolfo nous raconte l’histoire des quartiers. Très sécuritaire même dans la circulation, interessant de rouler en vélo sur la piste cyclable (rouge) au milieu de la circulation. Je recommande fortement ce tour en vélo.

Great Time and very interesting

It was a really fun time. There was one person on the tour that had a hard time on the bike and slowed us down but the guide was great and very patient. I enjoyed learning the different things about Lima.
