Amazing experience - We had an absolute blast during our day with Altitude Travel. Our guide Batman took the time to explain all the ins and outs of the bike, and explained to us how to stay safe on the death road. Nestor, our driver / 2nd guide that drove behind the group never pushed anyone in our group to speed up, so everyone could enjoy the trail at a speed that they felt comfortable with. Even though biking Death Road is still dangerous, we never really felt at danger due to Batman and Nestor. Amazing experience.
