The Death Road, wow, what an experience! It has something for everyone, from the adrenaline junky to the casual rider who likes to enjoy the scenery. Great guides keep you entertained along the way (and ease anyone's nerves). Vertigo is the best company to book your trip through, with full face helmets as mandatory, not an expensive extra, they are serious about the safety of their riders.

After much indecision about which company to book with, we eventually chose Vertigo Biking and were extremely happy with our choice. In our (mine and my boyfriends) opinion, Vertigo Biking is definitely the best company to book your mountain biking trip with. You are provided with full face helmets, knee pads, elbow pads, over-trousers, wind-proof jackets and gloves, which are all very comfortable and the bikes are of an extremely high standard. We compared the bikes and kit we were given with the other groups we saw, and none compared with Vertigo's. Amazingly the most expensive, popular, and original company who offer the Death Road trip, don't use full-face helmets. We were highly impressed with the professionalism and organisation of the company, as well as the knowledgeable, friendly and encouraging staff.

The road is fairly dangerous, but as long as you are cautious it is fine, and very enjoyable.

We definitely recommend riding the death road, and doing it with this company.

La Paz... Wow! What a place, what a city. But what is even more impressive are the surroundings. One of them is the road from La Paz to Coroico, called "Deathroad". The name sounds horrible but the reality is magic. Don´t miss it! Be careful because this really is a very dangerous road. But as long as you are not trying to do the "tour de france" everything is fine. I went with the company "Vertigo". Very nice and professional people. The bikes are just great and so much fun! I felt very safe with the bike and the guides. They did their best to make this day to one of the days you will never forget. Thank you for everything. And thank you Marcello (he loves to be called Chello) for being so careful with us and not treating us like the absolute beginners at the same time. It was a great mix of everything. And it was very funny as well... :)

P.S.: If you worry about taking pictures... Not necessary. The guides think about everything!

Muchas gracias y hasta luego...

Vertigo is a very profesional outfit. The bikes are great, both for serious riders and beginners. Had great guides (marcelo, cesar) who made the trip really relaxed and enjoyable. If i was to go again i would definitely go again with vertigo and cannot recommend this company enough.
