This was ideal for me after a long journey from UK to Peru. We saw a lot of the city, and had some nice exercise along the way. Our guide was excellent, keeping us safe on the busy city streets, and giving us lots of useful info along the way.

Excellent tour. Chris was very knowledgeable. The biking was well guided through the city. If you've already done the historic district, I highly recommend this bike tour to see Barranco and climb El Morro hill by bike

The best way to explore Lima is by Bike. Airline Crews this is perfect for you guys! I'd say take the tour and have fun. Ronnie, our guide was a great tour-guide. The tour starts in Miraflores from their stand, and from their we headed to the boulevard/Malecon, from where we did the tour, along the coastline. The Lima coastline takes your through 3 areas, Miraflores the upscale part of town, Barranco the Bohemian part of town and Chorrillos the rather traditional part of town, workers village. All 3 areas are great, with great places to see, the coastline, Lovers Park Parque del Amor, Bridge of Sighs Puente de Suspiros, street art and up the hill in Chorrilos to have a great panorama over the city of Lima. If you like to exlore the city as a local and you don't mind to bike a bit, you'll definitely enjoy this tour. A definite to-do tour when in Lima.

A great way to discover the best areas of Lima upon arriving. Christiano/Chris was very personable and has vast knowledge of Lima, Peru, South America and history. The ride was smooth and included a little workout when going up a nice lookout over the ocean. Highly recommended for everyone!

Amazing tour! Favorite part was riding through the Barranco neighborhood and having a refreshment when the tour was over. Super safe and super fun. Highly recommend if you’re in Lime!

This was an AMAZING tour! We got to see so many parts of Lima, beautiful sights, and got to exercise while doing it! Chris, our guide, was amazing and kept us safe the whole time. I HIGHLY recommend for anyone who is interested in being outdoors and having a great time!

This tour was fantastic! One of our favorite things we did in Lima! Chris was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable. My sister and I were the only ones on the tour so we were able to choose where to spend our time. For example, we had already seen El Parque Amor so we didn't spend much time there and spent more time on top of El Morro. I would recommend this to everyone! Lima has very nice bike lanes and the few times we were on the road there wasn't much traffic. It was a little difficult riding up El Morro, but you are able to stop and walk your bikes if needed. The views are definitely worth it!

My guide was charming and knowledgeable about Lima and the sites that we saw. It was a fun adventure! While the ride along the bike path was easy, the portion through the Barranco and Chorrillos districts offered a little more challenge. All very doable and worth the effort! The views were impressive and the stop for refreshment was a nice touch. I would recommend it as a nice option to see this part of Lima.

Really awesome tour! Chris was our tour guide and made the tour really fun and interesting. The bike path was easy to manage and not taxing until briefly at the end when you go up a hill, but definitely worth it! We said this was the most worthwhile thing we did during the whole trip. You get up close to the beach, and you see places that only the locals in Lima go to, it's so cool. Chris was great for recommendations too! If you have the time fit this in!

This tour was the most fun I had in Lima throughout the entire week I was there. It was just my tour guide Ronny and I and he was very respectful and had a great attitude, even though it was exceedingly hot on our tour day. We biked through some of the most gorgeous parts of the coast and stopped to take pictures along the way. Ronny doubles as a great photographer! I truly had a wonderful experience spending several hours biking around the city with him and learning about the area. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if you like seeing views of the city from high places. My only word of advice is that El Morro is real work to summit, so this is not for those who don't want to do a bit of work!

This was the best way to see Lima! Small groups it was just me, but they keep it under 6 allow for personal interactions. My tour guide - Arturo - was very knowledgeable. He was great in giving information, but not dwelling on it. We was always making sure that I was ok by giving me the plan for the next few blocks, making sure I understood the traffic laws, asking if the speed was ok, etc. I could not have asked for a better experience. As one that does not spend much time in large cities, thanks to his thoughtfulness, I never was concerned. Best deal!!

Arturo was our guide and did an excellent job. My dad age 71 and I age 34 did the tour together. Arturo was on time, gave us a few choices for the route we wanted to take, and did a great job educating us on the things we were seeing, the neighborhood nuances, and the famous sites. The path we went on was mostly paved, secure bike paths. For 1-2 km of the total ride about 25 total km, we were riding on the street surfaces with other vehicles. Just know this going into the ride. Also, the climb up to the replica of Christ the Redeemer is a strenuous climb, but well worth the effort!

Nice bike ride from Miraflores to Barranco and to the Cruz in Chorillos. You will get to see places you probably wouldn't discover on your own. The guide Beto is really fun and knows a lot about the city, he makes your trip worth going!

I would highly recommend this tour, we saw a lot of the city and the views were awesome. It was a lot of fun, and our tour guide was great. If you are in reasonable shape the one big climb will not even phase you. Bike were in good shape as well.

Excellent bike tour, one of the best bike ride I have ever done. Beto the guide was wonderful and awesome! best value to see the city. I will do it again!

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Lima. The tour guide, Beto, was so kind and considerate to our need. My daughter and I are not the bikers. In fact, last time we biked was couple of years ago. When beto learned that, he know what alternative route we needed to take instead of steep uphill ride. He made sure we are not intimidated or feel rushed. The view of the ocean side and Bohemian side was GREAT! I recommend this tour to any of my friends who will be visiting Lima.

wonderful guide and great tour

A little confusion in the beginning as our ticket said the tour started at 9 AM but the bike shop didn't open until 10 AM. In the fine print it said on holidays the tour starts at 10 AM so that would have been helpful to see on the ticket. Once the tour started we really enjoyed it. Covered a good amount of the coast. The climb up one of the mountains was pretty tough, definitely got our workout in for the day. Our tour guide was very informative.

Our bike guide was wonderful and let us do the amount and difficulty level we wanted. He also took us to a really nice brewery and bought us a beer! Wonderful way to see Lima.
• Submitted 31 Jul 2017
Friendly guide who showed us neighborhoods we wouldn't have normally gone to. It was a holiday and there was a parade which was an enjoyable experience, but rather than ride around it or park the bikes and wander about, the guide made us walk our bikes through the crowd.

I would recommend the Lima Bike Tour: Along the Cliffs and Hike ride El Morro to anyone with a spare day in Lima. When I arrived at the tour office I was quite surprised that I was the only one that had booked. Some other tours I have booked previously required a minimum number of tour members. Arturo was a great tour guide and was quite knowledgeable of the sights along the route from Miraflores to Chorrillos via Barranco. I clocked up about 25 km16 miles with 640 vertical metres 2,100 vertical feet of climbing. The climbing was a number of climbs and small ramps. The climb from the coast to monument was less than 100 metres at 4 av gradient. If you ride regularly don't forget to pack your gloves and don't forget to apply the sunscreen as you will be in the sun for a few hours. The only disappointment was that we did not ride on the gravel trail to the towers at the top of Solar Hill. There are plenty of sights to see along the route as well as the bigger monuments on El Morro.

The bike guide was very friendly and helpful. The problem was the traffic. This is no city to go on a bike ride. Not only too much vehicle traffic but there were too many pedestrians and other bikers. We could have almost as walked as fast as we biked. The one good time was the hill going to the Christ statue. For a non-biker, it was intense and yet exhilarating to get to the top.
