Fun tour!

The tour was a lot of fun and Tito was a very knowledgeable guide. My wife was a bit apprehensive about the ride but Tito put her at ease very quickly. She did very well. We toured the Barranco and rode along the Malacon. The scenery was beautiful and the exercise moderate. I would highly recommend this tour.

Tour de vélo très interessant.-

Ce tour de vélo combine à la fois la côte du Pacifique et trois quartiers de Lima. Le guide, Rudolfo nous conduit tout d’abord en véhicule en haut de la montagne où se trouve la statue du Christ du pacifique, pour ensuite redescendre en vélo avec une vue magnifique. On traverse les quartier de Chorillos (pêcheurs), Barranco (bohème) et Miraflores. Rudolfo nous raconte l’histoire des quartiers. Très sécuritaire même dans la circulation, interessant de rouler en vélo sur la piste cyclable (rouge) au milieu de la circulation. Je recommande fortement ce tour en vélo.
