This was a wonderful introductory city tour of Lima, which focused on the major sights and highlights. We took the half-day tour in the afternoon, perfect for our first day in Lima we were able to rest and take it easy in the morning. Although this was a group tour, we ended up being the only tourists, so we had a lot of flexibility. The van was spacious and clean our driver negotiated the traffic well! Elena, our guide, was so AMAZING! We learned so much from her, not just about Lima, but of Peruvian culture and history. Her pride in her country and heritage were very apparent. Elena was a wealth of information, and she covered a range of topics: of course of each site we saw and visited, but also of the different ancient cultures of Peru, Lima weather usually cloudy and foggy for 9 months of the year but little rainfall, the desert landscape along the coast, geology of the Miraflores cliffs and Lima Bay, Peruvian economy mining and exports, with tourism 3, chifa Chinese-Peruvian food, and suggestions for other sights to visit and events to attend in Lima. We took other tours in different cities in Peru - Elena was by far the best guide.
This was a short but very informative and fun tour. We loved our guide Elena who gave us lots of interesting facts and information. If you only have a short amount of time in Lima, we would definitely recommend that you take this tour.

A very knowledgable and personable guide who provided an overall sense of districts in addition to showing us the major places of interest. Glad I had the opportunity to do this!
Our tour guide name escapes me was the most knowledgeable person about Lima- it's history and culture- I met during our trip. My congratulations to the people in charge of choosing the tour guides. The ability to find the right people for any en devour is a gift requiring enlightenment.
Our Lima City Sightseeing Tour was great. Our tour guide Sonya and driver were timely and were excellent. Sonya went out of her way to provide an outstanding tour of Lima. She was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. She was well organized and the tour went without incident. Well done to Viator and their staff, especially Sonya, for a great experience and a wonderful tour of Lima!
Great tour with excellent guide and the driver. Well worth the time and reasonable cost. Kudos to super friendly guide Ursula.
Excellent tour and good overview of the historic center of Lima. Our guide was very informative and experienced in providing interesting background information and highlights of the culture and history of the city. Excellent value and delivered as described on the Viator website.
Tour pickup was on time. The guide was knowledgeable. Her English was good. The tour covered the highlights of Lima as well as can be done in three hours, plenty of stops for photos and walking. I suggest taking the tour on Saturday or Sunday when traffic is not so bad.
Amazing and informative. Gabriel taught me about Lima and Peru - not just led me around the city. He's charming which made the morning delightful.

Tour guide was great. She provided great info and was pretty easy to understand.
Excellent afternoon with Elena and lovely driver. They both went above and beyond to help me see Lima through their eyes. It is beautiful city with many unique sites. I highly recommend this tour.
We had a guide and driver for two of us. We were able to move at our own pace and have our questions answered readily with the ability for give and take on topics of interest. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and the driver was able to get us into and out of some very congested city spaces. I would certainly recommend this tour to visitors new to Lima.
