  • This was one our highlights with our visit to Cusco . Our ride leader worked very hard looking after us . He was very informative. The ride was challenging enough.

  • We had a fantastic day on this tour. Our guide was awesome as were the other 3 guys we were biking with. The ride itself was a mix of gentle uphill, progressing to walking our bikes up to the top. From the top the thrills began as we descended into the town of Maras to our first stop for a nice boxed lunch. After lunch we continued onward to Las Salinas, which was amazing. Most of the downhill was quite manageable, only having to dismount in a few steep, technical sections. Overall our entire group had a blast. Truly one of our highlights while in Cusco. I would recommend this tour to anyone with previous mountain bike experience. Some downhill, technical ability would definitely be an asset.

  • Travelling through the countryside on a bikeways quite enjoyable. Seeing moray and then Maras Saltmines. It just mixes up the way you the local sites instead of sitting on a bus. Guide was full of information. Only downside would be the bikes needed an upgrade.
