Claudia, our guide, was lovely, safety conscious and knowledgable; this was a fun way to see Miraflores and Barranco (Bay Tour) on a Saturday morning. The bike was comfortable and easy to ride. The staff was very accommodating, as I had to store my suitcase in the office during the tour, and they kept it safe. Next time I will do the City Tour!

We just moved to Lima for 12 months, and decided to take this bike tour on our first weekend in town. We are members of the South American Explorers Club, so we were able to get a slight discount, and enjoy a nice ride around Lima Bay. Jose was our guide, and he was incredibly nice, giving us all kinds of tips and local information. We rode from Miraflores, through Barranco, to the north end of Chorillos. Then we ended with a light snack and refreshment (beer or inca cola) at a little Italian bar in Barranco. Definitely recommend this bike tour.

This is a must if you are in Miraflores. Better then being stuck on a tour bus. You are able to stop at interesting places and really enjoy the atmosphere. Jose was a great tour guide and very accommodating to our schedule. The bikes worked just fine and were comfortable to ride.

We took the ''Bay Tour'' It was great, we really enjoyed. It's difficult biking in Lima because of the crazy traffic but our guide took us on side streets and some bike lanes so it was enjoyable. I would recommend Bike tours of Lima.

Was not too impressed with this particular bike tour. Route was fine but the bikes were problematic--one gear, pedal brakes. Our guide was a nice guy but not knowledgeable about Peru at all. (Think typical expat English teacher type.)

Dear Thoran13, thanks for sharing your opinion with us. We understand that it is impossible to please everyone with our service and that there are usually better tour days than others. Although, after checking out your other reviews I noticed that in the 65% of them, you have used the words mediocre, poor, grubby, badly or similar so that means that it is hard to satisfy your needs. About our bikes, we are still doubtful on what to think. We used to have until two years ago pedal brake/single gear models that are not any more used for our tours even when Lima is completely flat. Instead we use great hybrid bicycles of the best renowned brands with several gears and very comfy seats, needless to say they are the best option for urban sightseeing in the world. Our guides on the other hand, are always locals from Lima who have been trained on different subjects besides their own specialities such as cuisine, architecture, history, literature, art, economy and others and proof of that are the ton of fantastic comments and reviews supporting them. We want to thank you for your feedback and offer you the next time you are back in Lima to take a different tour, completely for free as our policy is 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
