Peru - The Andean Dream
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Peru - The Andean Dream cycling holidays...
Simon Watkinson , Edinburgh, Scotland
I found the redspokes guide Eduardo's commentary engaging and his enthusiasm infectious. No prior planning can predict all events and I was most impressed with how he dealt with situations, both personally and logistically, to ensure the group made the best of their trip.
I enjoyed the non-biking activities - the condors, hot springs, coffee factory and the Lampa church. Plus Machu Piccu of course. This was good for learning, breaking up the cycling and for group bonding. The work ethic and helpfulness of the whole redspokes team was commendable. I believe that a lot of the work required is behind the scenes to ensure a trip runs as smoothly as possible

I took my first organized cycling tour with redspokes to Peru. It was a wonderful adventure from the beginning. The tour was fantastic. The cycling and places we visited were awesome. It never felt like an organized trip, it was so relaxed and felt like the group were old friends.All they guides were a wealth of knowledge and very helpful. I will keep the memories with me for ever. South America is amazing. Well done redspokes.
Dave Clemmett, Manchester, England, UK
I lost 1.5 stone and can testify that redspokes is much better value for money than Weight Watchers.Excellent organisation of the trip along with lovely people and fantastic scenery lead to a bundleful of memories and a humbling experience. If people can survive in the Andes with nothing I should be able to live with everything without a complaint.Real mixture of the usual sights that tourists go to and also places where you will be the only foreigner. The tour guide Eduardo was flexible enough to meet our individual needs and offer support to people when it was needed. Most importantly he was very personable, knowledgeable and entertaining.

Well organised supportive proactive exciting adventure tour at altitude. It tested my limits and pushed past some of my boundaries, not to mention the compulsory fun factor. Neat bunch of people to have an adventure with. No wet blankets allowed on these tours!
Robert Burford, Essex, England, UK
For our first cycle trip abroad we decided on Peru and it exceeded all our expectations. The cycling was awesome, the food fantastic and the constantly changing scenery will never be forgotten. Everywhere we went the locals were so welcoming and hospitable.One of my many highlights was walking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We were so well looked after throughout the trek, with some great home cooking at camp! The diversity of the plants and birds and above all the Inca sites were a mystical experience.It's "Independence and freedom on 2 wheels" with all the support you need. We will be tagging on for more trips that's for sure.
Karen Smith, Edinburgh, Scotland
I really loved this trip and had a magic time. It was great to get off the beaten track in the 3rd week - the places we stayed and things we saw were fascinating. The scenery was unbelievable and it was great to see such a variety of terrains and climates in one 3 week trip.
I always felt well looked after and safe, whether cycling or trekking, the guides were fun, friendly and really boosted my confidence and egged me on with the cycling, which was brilliant.
Lisa Eagle, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
It was fantastic to have such great support the entire trip, from our bikes being maintained for us, having a safe driver and supportive guides that happily pushed you along when you needed it and rode with you even when you were stuffed.
Keith Pearce, Aylesford, Kent, England
The trip was a fantastic trip of a lifetime. I have so many fond memories of it and repeatedly look back at the photos to recap all that went on. It was great to meet so many nice people, fellow guests and organisers alike.
I don't know if the experience can be topped but I'm certainly going to give it a go on another location. Thanks again!
Tracey Binks, Broughton-in-Furneess, England
What a brilliant holiday.
The company, guiding, bike maintenance, food, accommodation and transport were all excellent. We got to see such a range of different terrains and far more than we would have done by ourselves.
I really recommend this trip.
Dave Corkill, Harrogate, England
The places visited, sites seen and area covered over the 3 weeks were fantastic, especially the remoteness of the 3rd week.
A true adventure as this was my first cycle holiday and slightly apprehensive with what to expect. Well at my tender age the cycling was hard but finishing the 100k will be cemented on my mind forever. Also climbing Wanapijchu at the end of the Inca Trail was "breathtaking". I never went hungry as lunch was always following behind my right shoulder.
