One of the best experience that I absolutely recommend it! 😎👌🏼All the customer service, guides, in general all the team were really comprehensive and gave me all the information. The bikes were with double suspension that you will need it due to the road and maybe it should be a good idea to practice before to go😉😎 but it'll worth it!

Having not riden a bike since I was about 10 (now 24) I was very reluctant to do the death road trip. However my boyfriend was very keen to and I didn’t fancy missing out so I plucked up the courage and we booked with Barracuda. They picked us up from the hostel around 6:45, I was very nervous due to my inexperience but looking back I shouldn’t have been at all. What an amazing experience, it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Abel, Felix & Hose looked after us so so well! I was a tiny bit slower/more cautious than the rest of the group but I was never alone, one of the guides were always there & always reassuring me. We stopped for regular breaks and the guys would tell us what was coming next and what to look out for/to be careful of which was super helpful!! They give you full equipment, trousers, jacket, gloves, helmet & bike all to fit your size, during the cycle they take photos for you so you don’t have to put yourself in danger when on the bike & most of all they were very experienced and safety was very important to them! The group we were with was great fun and so friendly, the lunch was beautiful and the death road itself wasn’t so scary after all! If your in doubt like I was I’d recommend going with Barracuda, take your time and go at your own pace and you won’t regret it!! Thanks again guys👏🏻

We had Jubert, Abel and David and we were so lucky ! They were amazing. Felt very safe with them and they made the whole experience even better. Abel fixes a puncture I had in no time! We would highly recommend this trip but most of all we highly recommend this company. 5* !

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!
