Riding the Death Road was perhaps the most beautiful and challenging experience of my life. John and the PJAMM team took care of all of the logistics, so I could focus on the ride. There's no better way to experience Bolivia on a bike!

Charlie Thackeray, UK

My trip to cycle up The Death Road in Bolivia was a memorable adventure with PJAMM and a great privilege to be part of. Every detail was taken care of, from great accommodations to a fantastic guide and transportation. My fellow travellers soon bonded into a group of friends who made the adventure even more enjoyable - ably led by John Johnson. Highly recommended.

Bruce Hamilton, Utah

Highly recommend the PJAMM Cycling team for riding in Bolivia. John and Marcelo made riding The Death Road a once in a lifetime event. Let PJAMM handle the logistics and you'll be in for an epic experience.

Nigel Brockton, Virginia

Epic - an overused term but Bolivia, La Paz, The Death Road, Chacaltya, Lake Titicaca and the PJAMM Adventure team have earned it. A truly once in a lifetime experience. Physically challenging. Emotionally recharging. Jaw-droppingly spectacular. Every aspect is arranged but with the flexibility to enjoy it your way. Unmissable.
