We had the best Day ever! With Waldo on our side and Ricardo as our driver we did feel save the whole Day. We had a lot of fun and Waldo was just the kindest Person ever. Everyone was able to get down in there own speed which was very nice. Everything was so professional and we would recommend Vertigo all the time to everyone who wants to do this Tour! You won‘t regret it.

The BEST guides and drivers with this agency. Safety is obviously taken seriously but Juan was confident (not overconfident) and supportive, and really informative in terms of also the history of the yungas road and about its reputation as the death road. Anything you want to know they can tell you.

The biking itself is amazing and you get into it really quickly, it’s super thrilling but not stupidly so, and the guides will take many photos of you and the group as a whole. Lots of stops on the way to have a snack or for a photo op, but mainly to check the brakes on the bikes etc.

Fantastic day with amazing views and lovely people!

The whole day was extremely well organised, the bikes were of great quality and our guide Victor was superb. Not once did we feel unsafe - Victor explained everything to us before we started, giving us some tips on what road positions to take and constantly kept us updated throughout on what to expect. The group was nice and small and we felt like we could go at our own pace all day.

Thank you so much - a great experience!

A lot of fun - Will was an excellent guide. We did a brief safety introduction and check of the MTBs then headed down Death Road. Along the way we stopped for photos at some key spots and he explained history of the road and pachamama. Once arriving at the bottom we went to a local hotel for lunch (included in price but not the beer) and a dip in the pool. Photos were sent by dropbox after and were excellent shots and videos. I would recommend doing Death Road, a must when in Bolivia!

We had an amazing day with Vertigo bike tours. Both Jay and the driver Mickey were professional and attentive throughout the day, explaining every step thoroughly and looking after us at all times.

They picked us up in the morning from our hostel, we drove to the top and got all of our equipment organised. Full face helmets, knee pads, elbow pads, gloves, trousers and jackets made us feel very safe. The bikes were top quality duel suspension bikes and in great condition.

The ride down was an incredible experience we will never forget. Jay took our photos and we can get them for free on dropbox. Safety was always first, with any difficult or dangerous sections described to us before we tackled them. Everyone was able to go at their own pace, with Jay leading at the front and the minibus following behind.

At the end we had a big, tasty buffet lunch, swim in the swimming pool and showers. Snacks and water were provided through the day.

We would recommend Vertigo to any travellers, they are great, professional guys and make the experience all the better.

This tour exceeded all of our expectations. Our guide Juan and driver Ghichi (I hope I spelled their names right) were so welcoming, knowledgeable and hardworking. The gear was all provided and was high quality, comfortable, and they prioritized safety while still creating an exhilarating ride. Everything was perfectly planned and we had an amazing day. Juan even took photos and videos of our trip for us the entire way down. From packed snacks and a delicious buffet lunch, I don’t have a single complaint about this service. I HIGHLY recommend this company and I will be back to do it again when I am in Bolivia next :)

Choosing Vertigo Biking was the best decision. Easy communication with the company, great service and the best guide!

I was excited for a downhill ride down the Death Road but also a bit nervous at the beginning. But Will, our bike guide, made this experience an unforgettable and enjoyable one. He’s a passionate and very experienced biker who well understands that safety comes first.

Before starting the ride he gaves us all needed instructions and enough time to try the bikes.

At the checkpoints he always first congratulated us for a completed section (whoop every completed section is a small victory!:) ) and then always explained us what to expect and be careful at the next section. With his explanations, guiding and good Vertigo equipment (bikes, helmets, clothes etc) I felt really safe and I could simply enjoy.

Will speaks very well English, he makes sure everyone feels ok and safe, he’s fun and great company overall. And a good DJ to entertain you during the transport from and back to La Paz :)

Soon after our biking trip we also received all the cool photos and videos that Will made on the Death Road. A precious souvenir.

I highly recommend biking down the Death Road with Vertigo!

I had a great experience with Vertigo Biking at Death Road. Our guide (Victor) was very kind, spoke perfectly english and made a lot of pictures and videos. He always explained what to expect at the next section of the road. He really took good care of us! Afterwards we had a good lunch at a restaurant where we could also take a nice hot shower and jump into the pool if we wanted.

Overall we had decent bikes, delicious food, a great guide and al lot of fun!
I would definitly recommend this company.

I would really recommend all of you to book this day trip with Vertigo Biking Bolivia cause of their Service! Which is really good cause not only they have English speaking guides, they also care about your safety.

Ask for Victor Hugo Ramireszuispe he’s really good in English. He made this bike tour great and he also can do that for you!

Before you start biking they already checked wheels of the bikes and the breaks how they are functioning (really important!, and normal would you say..) but also during the trip they are checking it and they always have a car driver behind the group driving who helps when needed if it for repairing, fixing, replacing a bike or just for water and food. They are there for you.

Before I booked this bike tour I also compared other companies and they are not always providing a English speaking guides nor care for your safety....

And the end I was really happy booking this one. Also cause of the really nice guides.

In general:
If I have to tell you In one word how it was i would say “AMAZING”. But more words are yet to come: incredible, active, dangerous. I really loved it the kick I got from it while I was biking on “the most dangerous road”.

What an experience ! Been Picked up at the hotel, at 8h straight to top, to begin the descent.

They gived us all the staff we needed, bikes where great with double suspensions, with zero problem.

The guide was pasionate and very professional, gived us every information and precotions we had to know, to get the ride safe and sensational.

Views and lanscape are just awesome during the descent.

Arrived at 16h to the Hotel down the Death road for a nice swim and food.

Then back to la Paz, with a safe drive and landscape.

100% I'll be back !

Thanks Vertigo
