  • Together with my friend we have cycled with the tour operator barro death road biking. By the many providers we didn't know what we had to choose and we are there for a gone which are cheaper but Nice is regarded. We are very satisfied! We were with a small group of 5 and one guide on the bike. The bikes are not the latest but are fine, the brakes worked well and the Guide checked them regularly. We got tasty snacks on the road and the driver drove in the Bushs after us. The buffet afterwards is basic and the driver has driven us back safely and cleanly and quietly drove home. And oja death road is really cool! Haha do so
