This was a great activity for our family of 5! The organizers were very helpful in arranging the right bikes for our 3 kids (including one kid who sat on a seat on mom’s bike). The tour was interesting and fun, and gave us a great flavor of Lima….way more than we would have seen without the tour. Highly recommend!

I had an amazing time! Our guide brought us to visit the plaza in Miraflores, the plaza del amor, he discussed with us the coastal life, we road along the coast of the pacific ocean to the town of Barranco where we have a nice coffee stop. Our guide was amazing and friendly and willing to share the history.

My tour was lots of fun! Kral was a great tour guide- friendly and informative. The route is very bike-friendly and full of touristy attractions you would want to see in Miraflores and Barranco. The complimentary refreshment is an added bonus! Definitely would recommend this tour :)
