Tour Operator Cycle Peru
Experience the true Peru
Our trips cater to the discerning tourist, who is looking for an active holiday rather than an extreme adventure, and prefers a comfortable, upscale experience without losing the opportunity to experience the true Peru.
Our activities have been chosen carefully to take you to the highlights of your destination. We aim to get you off the beaten track giving you an authentic cultural experience and a chance to interact with Peru's warm and vibrant people.
Our trips include a level of moderate activity but at the same time you don't need to be a Lance Armstrong to enjoy them! If you are comfortable on a bike and enjoy getting out there, you can do one of our trips.
Our trips include a dedicated support van with the cyclists at all times, so you can cycle as much as you would like with the security of knowing you can get in the van at any time. This also means you only need to carry minimal gear with you on the bike, making for totally carefree riding!
Our high altitude adventures are planned carefully to ensure enough time at the start of trips to aid acclimatization and as the trips progress we are climbing slowly to give you the best experience possible at altitude. All our vans are equipped with a comprehensive first aid kit and Oxygen, and all our guides have years of experience guiding at high altitude.
We stay in clean and comfortable hotels and where the options are limited we choose the best available option. We aim to give you the best overall experience where you stay, preferring to use small locally owned places with personal service and a high level of comfort.
We also have the ability to create unique custom tours for private groups, and can give you a range of options for pre and post trip accommodation, or options to extend your holiday if you are not ready to go home yet!
And of course, the big question with guided packages is always what is included and what is not?
Well, like you, we HATE confusing small print!
We want to make sure your whole experience with us is unique and stress free, so we have included ALMOST EVERYTHING in your tour price so you just have to sit back and enjoy your holiday.
