    A wonderful tour with the back up of a van . One of the the party was not confident of the down hill section , so the van was able to pick her up and then when we were on the flat resume her ride .
    Great commentary by guide and he took us through some interesting area . In the narrow busy sections the van was always behind us shielding the riders from the cars

    The guide and his support staff were very knowledgeable and showed us parts of the city from a very interesting perspective. Safety is key to them and you can see and feel it in the induction and during the ride. It is not suitable for beginners that don't know how to ride a bike very well. Other than that the tour is a great option for anyone that wants to discover the city from a low-paced perspective.

    I really appreciated how the bike tour began at the top of a hill overlooking Lima and gradually reached the cost line.

    We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the two neighborhoods that are not offered on the usual tours. Alex, our guide related all stops to the socio-economic, political history of Peru and its neighbors. We particularly enjoyed this discourse since we have traveled through Central and parts of South America and really enjoy learning about the "insider" politics when we travel. We took this tour the day we were going home from Lima after a two week bus around all of Peru. We were able to stretch and it was a pleasure to get on bicycles to get our bodies back in shape! Despite being in our 70's we love biking and do so all summer in Summit County Colorado....the mountain bikes were excellent quality, appropriate for the cobblestones, dirt, and pavement. Top knotch condition. Mostly downhill; some mild uphill which was not intense, and flats. Pace was slow; if you bike at all this trip would be safe and more than enjoyable! Helmets and yellow shirts provided. The two neighborhood streets were empty...the only traffic was in Miliflores near the Malecon over to Lovers Park. We took particular precautions to make this safe for all. When on a sidewalk passing a "con prermisso" to let folks know you are passing is advisable. There were 3 of us on this Adventure....including a 30's fellow from the British Isles....we all enjoyed this trip together. Alex recommended the Parkitera restaurant overlooking Kennedy Park (which is a must see with its cat residents) and we spent 2 hours post trip people watching, drinking Pisco Sours and enjoying our last few hours in Lima...before departing home. WE EMPHATICALLY RECOMMEND THIS TRIP! !Karen and Alan PariserSarasota, Florida

    This tour was absolutely amazing! Our guide was well informed and fun! The Views you will get of the city and coast are spectacular. You don't need to be athletic to do this tour. I highly recommend doing this tour.

    This was an amazing tour! Great way to explore the two neighborhood, you do not have to be an athlete to do this tour and apreciate it.

    The tour was very nice. My wife and I who are not experienced cyclists enjoyed the tour and Tito's commentary on the sights and history of Lima. We had a very small group which was very nice as well, as we could customized the tour and stop and take photos when necessary. The tour was a great way to experience Lima.

    Thanks to Tito who made this bike tour exceed beyond my expectations! I did this tour on a monday morning and I was the only one that booked that day and Tito the owner of Urban Bike Adventures really made me feel comfortable biking through Lima. The tour itself starts on top of a arid desert mountain car picks you up and you start downhill! A bit of mountain bike terrain in the beginning with breathtaking views of the beach and pacific ocean. Then once you get down from that area - Tito took me through the Barrancos district while explaining history of the areas we were in and Peru history overall. Finishing the tour along a beautiful bike ride along the coast by Miraflores and there are great and safe bike trails. Bike tour was about 3.30 hours long with a couple of water and snack breaks which were much needed Lima's summer heat. Truly a unique way to see a new part of Lima.
