Description

Did you know Lima is called The City of Kings? Join on a Sunday bike ride through time and history to find out why. Ride your bike through the once grandiose, Spanish-style city center. Along the way, you’ll stumble upon the beautiful government palace, witness the changing of the guards, and visit iconic Lima buildings. Your guides are two Lima locals and will also take you to off-the-beaten-path local spots such as Chinatown and the Central Market.

With local guides Arturo and Beto leading the way, you'll feel as though you are spending the day with a friend, allowing you to relax, enjoy, and see the sights without being overloaded with information. A day full of culture and history, this bike tour is the perfect way to see the city's historic center in an active and unique way.

After twelve years of living and growing up in Lima, my family moved to the rainforest of Peru. From spending my whole life on the coast, the transition was strange, but I quickly discovered and fell in love with the culture, traditions, and food of the jungle. My memories of living in the Iquitos City, right near the Amazon River, are some of the happiest of my childhood. It taught me to be open-minded to new places, and that there’s so much more to the world just waiting to be explored.

After five years in Iquitos, I moved back to Lima to go to college. There, I started studying tourism as a gateway to explore more places. Studying tourism gave me incredible opportunities to travel to cities all over Peru and abroad. My love of Lima and desire to run my own tour company brought me home, and so I started hosting bike tours. After traveling around the world, never did I expect to end up back at home. Yet, I can honestly say I’ve found my true passion, showing travelers all around my city.
