5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

This was a great way to see the city and see what places you want to explore more. We did this tour our first night and we were to able to see what we wanted to visit and what places we didn't! The Water district is absolutely amazing and definitely a must see while in Lima!!!!!!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

We were looking for a relatively short, general tour of Lima and we found it at a reasonable price with this company. The meeting place and online payment was a little vague but it ended up working out very well.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

Our 15:15 tour was cancelled by the company but we thoroughly enjoyed the 19:00 tour. The laser light show at the fountains in the park was amazing. We had to leave the tour in the central park area to make it back to our ship. I would highly recommend this tour but due to the fact the company cancelled the 15:15 tour I would suggest Viator look into one of the other tour companies we saw pass us by all day long.

Good overview of the city. Pretty basic but perfect if you have a limited time in Lima. Enjoyed visiting the catacombs, definitely a plus!

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

It was a great and educational tour. Note this is NOT a hop on hop off bus...but it was great.

4 star rating: Recommended March 2015

Good way to see Lima, good guide on the bus. Only hiccup was that the listing specifically said you could use an electronic voucher on your phone but the tour operator would only accept a printout. In the end we were able to email the voucher to her using the wifi at the larcomar.
