Had a great experiance with the Barracuda biking team doing Death Road today. The service from start to finish was great. Guides spoke great english, all the bikes were in great condition and are full suspension. The support mini-bus followed us all the way so we could strip off layers as it got hotter and resupply on water. Gustavo, our guide was great.

The best experience!! We felt super safe and enjoyed the ride so much, thanks to our guides Gustavo, Marco and the driver Nabel! They made sure that everyone was comfortable all the time, listened to our needs and just had a great vibe. Water, food and extra warm clothes were included. Would definitely recommend

I cannot recommend mountain biking down The Death Road enough for an adrenaline rush and a major tick off the bucket list! Being such a dangerous activity safety is key, and Barracuda biking stop at nothing to ensure everyone's safety is maintained! The bikes are in excellent condition with amazing suspension, we were also provided with all the necessary equipment including knee pads if desired. We were so lucky to have a small group (4 persons), with two expert guides riding along with us - Jose and Kenett. We also had a very experienced Death Road driver, Moncho, who after following us the whole way down, drove us back along the road on the way home, so we could really take in the breathtaking scenery - and makes you realise what you've just achieved!!! We were provided with ample snacks and water throughout the day, really couldn't recommend any improvements. Thank you so much chicos!! We can't thank you enough.

My boyfriend and I did a death road bike tour with our guides Jubbie and Abel. They were a awesome. Have us lots of laughs, adventure and fun times while making us feel safe and confident. Great group to do the death road with. Ending the trip in the pool with some yummy food and beers was a definite bonus and unlike other tour groups. Our driver German was also a gem and made us feel super safe going up the death road which was certainly a mission for a driver Im sure. Great team and highly recommend them to anyone wanting to ride death road.

We went to the death road in the rain season and had safety concerns because of the rain. Which turned out were not needed as Jubert, Alvaro & Ramiro did a great job with giving good instructions, helping everyone and comforting all. My mom tagged along in the van without biking and had a great time too, they really made sure that everyone had a great time.
I started off on a single suspension bike, which (in my opinion) are not suited to the road at all! Guys book dpuble suspensions, you'll have a lot more fun and be more relaxed. All in all perfect day trip for people who like adventure :)

Definitely recommend! The whole tour from start to finish was great! Tour guides are excellent and the journey is spectacular! If you are in La Paz this is a must do. The bikes with dual suspension were high quality and brakes were responsive! (what you want when doing death road 👍) The tour guides made frequent stops throughout and explained each section clearly which made the whole tour feel very safe. Chilling by the pool and the tasty buffet lunch was a nice end to a brilliant day! Make sure you bring a change of clothes as there’s a good chance you will get wet! You can leave everything in the bus so you don’t have to carry it all with you on the bike.

Christian, Felix and Alfonso took us on the day trip do bike the dead road; they did great!! They took very good care of us, and had all the gear that was needed (extra needed because it was raining). the bikes are really good and they even check them during the day to make sure you are still save.

The road itself was really cool! If you listen to the instructions of the guides and know how to ride a bike, you’re gonna be fine!
There was more than enough food and water :)

Would really recommend going with this company, keep up the good work!

This tour is a one-of-kind experience. Barracuda Biking is a safe, reliable company and I cannot recommend them enough. The guides were informative, helpful and personable. This is a tour you don't want to skimp on as safety is crucial. Barracuda is one of the best companies with the best prices. You're not going to get much more for your money going with pricier companies. I cannot stress enough that this company made my experience both safe and fun. I'll never forget it.

We did the Death Road biking with Christian and Santos which made our trip amazing! I was more than surprised about how good the tour was organized. There was always the opportunity to get access to the bus for getting or leaving stuff or for taking a ride if somebody feels not good. Always water and enough nice food all day. We also felt very safe riding this road because we did enough stops and got information about how the next part of the road is and what to watch out for. In addition to the instructions there is always a guide in front and behind the group and you can take the time you need or speed with the one in front.
Biking this road is so much fun. We had full suspension bike's what makes it even more fun (in my opinion not necessarily needed to survive but brings a lot of fun and comfort).
Thanks again to our guide's for this day!

We decided to go for a spin on the Death Road and got lucky to be with Gustavo and Kenneth. Their expertise of the road is excellent, which is critical given how dangerous it can be. Despite de cloudy/foggy weather, we were still able to take some great pictures. A lot of fun!
