A NIGHTMARE WITH THESE THIEFS
Apr 2021 • Couples
Run away from this scam fake agency !!! Our experience on the 02/04/2021 was HORRIBLE, we were close to die because of their catastrophic logistic !! Indeed, the autobus that were supposed to follow us all the way to insure our protection disappeared and we got lost and abandoned in the forest after an avalanche came in, we were saved late at night by firemen !! The owner of the agency promised to refund us but the agency stopped replying to all our requests. These people are thiefs and liars !!

Such an awesome and fun day with an amazing guide. Unique Experience!
Mar 2021
Such a fun and exciting day! I knew this was a must do in Bolivia and after reading reviews, I am glad I went with Altitude. After an early start to the day, there were some issues with the van/transportation (though no fault of Altitudes); the team and staff at Altitude were great about updating us on the delay and doing everything in their power to make the day happen (which they did and I'm so thankful for!!) Once the day finally got started, it was amazing! Such a unique and fun experience. Our guide, Nelson, could not have been better! He was so upbeat and fun. He made sure we had all the gear and safety we needed before starting and then would check on us throughout the ride. Not to mention, he knew all the photo spots and angles and was an excellent photographer! We were a little short on time at the end, but he was able to get our food to go and even provided snacks and ice cream which was a nice treat at the end! Definitely recommend doing death road when you are in Bolivia and going with Altitude! They made the day and experience something I will always remember. And, if you can, get Nelson as your guide! Thanks so much Altitude!!

Avoid at all costs! Stolen money
Dec 2020
Disgusting service - the tour operator cancelled in March due to Covid, fair enough.

Promised us a refund

Month after month they said that they couldnt pay and asked us to wait.

Now they have stopped responding to emails and it has become clear that they have just brazenly stolen our money

Avoid at all costs!

Disappointing no refund
Mar 2020 • Couples
Unfortunately still waiting on a refund which they have promised to pay back month after month.

Very disappointing making the heartbreak of not being able to go on honeymoon even tougher..

Disappointing experience
They told us to be at the meeting point between 6:00 and 6:10 am. We were there and waited until 6:35 when they arrived at the other end of the plaza and as we found out in the evening had the nerves to message us: when will you be here?
The clothes we were given were not new, but fitted everyone well. The bikes were in not too good conditions (saddles didn't stay in place, wheels were bent). The guide smoked cigarettes all the time and the information given about the history was very basic.
But the worst thing are the pictures, consdering this is one of the agency's advertisment-points: all blurry & veeery bad quality.
The food at the end in the hotel was very good.

Unbelievable!
Feb 2020
I am Bolivian born living in the US. I went back to visit Bolivia and to show the country to my Ecuadorean boyfriend. I gave him the Biking tour as a birthday present and he adored it! I can truly say it was one of the best and most amazing adventures in my live. Altitude's quick responses made it incredibly easy for me to coordinate the tour ahead of our trip even while still in the States. The equipment was and the guides even better. They were very informative through out the trip, with great history and local tales. I am not an experienced biker but still risked it. To my surprise the descent was not as hard as I imagined and as long as you can ride a bike without training wheels you will be able to do it. There where 2 guides plus one driver that followed in the small van. One of the guides went ahead with the most experienced bikers and the other with slower ones such as myself. They do not rush anyone, you go at your pace. They took great pictures of the descent for us, we had nothing to worry. Snacks were provided and water available at all times. They were fun, informative, well prepared and just incredible. My boyfriend can't stop telling everyone about his birthday present. He loved it and wanted to do it again, probably will return to Bolivia only for the mountain biking!
