This trip is amazing. Jaime is extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and the trip takes place off road, adding to the excitement. On the way up we ate fresh almonds straight from the tree - delicious. We also spotted vultures flying overhead, pajuna cows, horses and lots of other wild vegetation. As you climb higher the mountains hit you with their natural beauty and snow capped peaks. Even had time to make a snowman! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip today it just made our stay in Grenada even more special. I can't recommend this enough. Jaime goes out of his way to accommodate you. Perfect end to our trip.

It was a very nice trip through nature, with beautiful views. Because of the e-bikes it was not a sporting challenge, but you can enjoy the surroundings. The trip was well organized, with transport to the departure point in the mountains. From there a descent and a few climbs.

The trip was great and went at a nice easy pace that allowed plenty of time for photos. The guide, Ian, was friendly and knowledgeable.

Thought it would be too heavy for me (72), but it wasn't too bad and I wouldn't have missed it. Incredibly beautiful.

It was simply awesome, the views, the route that we took, the bicycles and the guides
