    This trip was awesome. Our guide Daniel was excellent - including his quick repair work when i got not one but two flat tires on my bike. This trip offers phenomenal views and excellent biking. Experience with mountain bikes is critical for challenging sections - that being said I'm sure Daniel will modify routes based on skill level. There is no vehicle traffic its all rural roads and trails. I was still acclimating to the elevation for this trip - it is at a very high elevation, so I'd recommend time to acclimate before taking the tour. That being said Daniel knew when breaks were needed to breath and rest ( I walked my bike up a couple of steep sections), be prepared to see rural life and animals is a part of Peru most visitors do not get to see (Wow - Great!!). Lunch is old town square is also cool.

    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.
