We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the two neighborhoods that are not offered on the usual tours. Alex, our guide related all stops to the socio-economic, political history of Peru and its neighbors. We particularly enjoyed this discourse since we have traveled through Central and parts of South America and really enjoy learning about the "insider" politics when we travel. We took this tour the day we were going home from Lima after a two week bus around all of Peru. We were able to stretch and it was a pleasure to get on bicycles to get our bodies back in shape! Despite being in our 70's we love biking and do so all summer in Summit County Colorado....the mountain bikes were excellent quality, appropriate for the cobblestones, dirt, and pavement. Top knotch condition. Mostly downhill; some mild uphill which was not intense, and flats. Pace was slow; if you bike at all this trip would be safe and more than enjoyable! Helmets and yellow shirts provided. The two neighborhood streets were empty...the only traffic was in Miliflores near the Malecon over to Lovers Park. We took particular precautions to make this safe for all. When on a sidewalk passing a "con prermisso" to let folks know you are passing is advisable. There were 3 of us on this Adventure....including a 30's fellow from the British Isles....we all enjoyed this trip together. Alex recommended the Parkitera restaurant overlooking Kennedy Park (which is a must see with its cat residents) and we spent 2 hours post trip people watching, drinking Pisco Sours and enjoying our last few hours in Lima...before departing home. WE EMPHATICALLY RECOMMEND THIS TRIP! !Karen and Alan PariserSarasota, Florida

The tour was very nice. My wife and I who are not experienced cyclists enjoyed the tour and Tito's commentary on the sights and history of Lima. We had a very small group which was very nice as well, as we could customized the tour and stop and take photos when necessary. The tour was a great way to experience Lima.

Thanks to Tito who made this bike tour exceed beyond my expectations! I did this tour on a monday morning and I was the only one that booked that day and Tito the owner of Urban Bike Adventures really made me feel comfortable biking through Lima. The tour itself starts on top of a arid desert mountain car picks you up and you start downhill! A bit of mountain bike terrain in the beginning with breathtaking views of the beach and pacific ocean. Then once you get down from that area - Tito took me through the Barrancos district while explaining history of the areas we were in and Peru history overall. Finishing the tour along a beautiful bike ride along the coast by Miraflores and there are great and safe bike trails. Bike tour was about 3.30 hours long with a couple of water and snack breaks which were much needed Lima's summer heat. Truly a unique way to see a new part of Lima.

We had a great time. There could have been a little more variety of bike sizes as well as helmet sizes. And definitely a bottle of cold water for each person to start with, then we could have bought additional at our snack stop if needed. Really liked the route we took and the distance. It was a fun way to see parts of the city.

Very fun and interesting. Tito lead a great tour. I would say that you should be fairly in shape and confident on a bike, as there are a few bigger hills, but they were manageable and Tito was very patient. Great way to see a lot of Lima.

Fantastic short tour, mostly downhill riding, so easy for almost anyone. Our guide, Tito, was very well-informed about the history and cultural of Lima. He was also very careful and attentive with each client member of the group. Highly recommend this if you want to fill a half-day in Lima.
