Amazing week! The guides were great (one was a Peruvian cross-country champion, I believe), the bikes were great (full suspension Scotts), the riding was great, the food was really great (!!!), and the views were amazing. By way of example, after a day of wonderful riding (downhill and then cross-country through the Sacred Valley), we arrived at our campsite to find that our tents were already pitched, our sleep mats and bags already rolled out, and in moments coffee, tea and hot chocolate with snacks were prepared for us! It was a very memorable week for me.

My guide Luis was very knowledgeable of Inca history, Peruvian culture, local cuisine and had a detailed explanation to any question I had which allowed me to learn so much throughout my journey. All accommodations were absolutely awesome and a lot would have only been known by the locals due to them not having websites, etc. To give you an idea I'm pretty sure I had the best possible view of the fort in Ollantaytambo, all from the comfort of my room! I am confident and very happy to say that it was 100% worth going through Aspiring Adventures, they were professional, gave me value for money and were very accommodating. My experience of Peru through them was absolutely awesome! I will never forget it.

Hard to say enough good things about Aspiring Adventures. They planned a scenic and rugged mountain biking trip for me and a friend. The preparation was thoughtful, the execution flawless, and the trip unparalleled. We had a blast the entire time, from Cusco to Pisac to Lares to Calca to Urubamba to Ollantaytambo to Aguas Caliente to Machu Picchu and back. The guide, Ronald, was friendly and professional, the on-the-ground-team, Katy, was present and thorough, and our driver, Kique, was fun and safe. All around a brilliant time.

What a great way to experience such a vibrant culture! MTB in Cusco, Peru! I traveled to Peru late September. I was there for a 7 day mountain biking adventure. The trip was awesome! Great guide, great food, great experience overall. This trip was nothing like I've experienced before. Instead of fighting tourist traffic at local "tourist" attractions, we were amongst the locals. Free from the chaos of busy city traffic and people. We were surrounded by mountains and nature. Natural Hot springs, beautiful people, breathtaking views, and delicious food. I recommend this trip to anyone!!

I booked the sacred valley mountain biking tour along with my husband and 4 friends. I have NEVER had that much fun on a vacation! If you are thinking of doing anything with Aspiring Adventures, don't hesitate. They are top notch and worth every penny. They provide incredible value for the very modest price they charge.
To start, I had many back and forth emails with Katie, one of the owners about other tour options and she was extremely kind and patient with all my questions. She's also just really down to earth and funny and I'm so grateful she was willing to work with me organizing our random group of friends.Then, our guides, Wilhelm and Josh, were just top notch. They were the perfect blend of professional keeping us on time and in line, but also made you feel like they were your friends. That's a rare gift to feel like your guides are just part of your crew but knowing they totally have your back. In addition to our guides, our driver, El Presidente, was superb. Quiet and calm on some snowy twisty mountain roads that he handled with ease. And finally, our cooks were incredible. I'm not a foodie, but my husband is and another of our crew used to be a chef and they were blown away! Who makes cream cheesecake while camping? These guys! That's who. It was incredible.
There are loads of other things to say about this tour and this crew, but bottom line, they are worth every penny and more. Book any tour with Aspiring Adventures, but especially the mountain biking tour. You won't regret it.
