Only three months old, Prodownhill has certainly made a name for itself on the South American travelers circuit. Prodownhill came so highly recommended for the death road by several backpackers on their way north through Peru, we didn’t even consider booking the death road with another agency.
Suiting our group of 7 up for the day, the equipment was in excellent shape and clearly taken care of. From the protective moto-cross quality clothing, to the top-quality helmets and pads, it was clear Prodownhill had our safety in mind. Decked out in flash gear, our bikes were tuned and ready to go without a lot of fiddling around. Our guides were friendly and did a great job of keeping us together as a group while allowing people to go down the death road at their own speeds. Stopping the group every 10-15 minutes for a safety stop, our guides were constantly telling us about the next section of road and checking to make sure everyone was having a good time. The seven in our group ranged from an ironman competitor to someone who had never used a mountain biked before and I can say with 100% certainty that everyone felt safe and had a great time on the trip.
Taking lots of video and photos, which they gave us at the end on a CD, the entire Prodownhill staff was attentive, fun and professional. The bikes were in good condition and the protective gear they provided was so significantly more than any other tour operator we saw that we were almost embarrassed knowing that some of those people had paid almost double, for the same death road, what we did! Our experience with them was so incredible I would actually say the death road has been one of my favorite days in all of South America.
A LIST OF THINGS THAT WENT WRONG ON THE DEATH ROAD WITH PRODOWNHILL:
Nobody was killed or otherwise dismembered, deformed, or injured in any way.
We were the sexiest group of bikers out there, everyone else was jealous.
Prodownhill gave us so much food throughout the day that I never got hungry.
The brakes on all of the bikes worked.
Prodownhill kept the office open late and burned the DVD for us that evening.
We paid way less for the death road than probably everyone else out there.
I didn’t have to think or worry about anything.
Prodownhill helped us find a bus for later that evening.
I wasn’t able to buy a cool jersey, instead I was given a free t-shirt and DVD of all our photos and videos.
I only had one free beer to go with my free lunch.
Prodownhill had a movie for us to watch on the 3 hour ride back to La Paz.
On the bike I could go as fast or as slow as I wanted, totally up to me.
Prodownhill gave us a perfect day, for a perfect price. THANK YOU PRODOWNHILL
