TRAVEL REPORT
May 2006
In Arequipa I used Peru Adventure Tours to go on a couple of mountain biking expeditions. One down the side of Misti which was absolutely fabulous and then used them again to go up to see the active volcano Ubinas and this was stunning. It was good biking and the views were spectacular! Normally I only use tour guides recommended in the guide books but this one is recognized by the footprint Website, not the book as are only a few years old. They were great and the Biking guide Saul Ceron were a considerate and funny person. They are on Zela 209 but the office is closed to the public during the week. I found out about them on the internet. www.peruadventurestours.com There were good value for money and knew what they were talking about. Highly recommended.
