Was in Lima for one day and needed an afternoon tour. This tour included a quick look at various important sights in the old and new parts of Lima. The guide and driver were excellent. Started on time. Was expecting to be picked up by bus and tour with others but as it turned out my wife and I were the only ones so we had a van, a driver and a giude. I do not know if the tour company made a mistake but they came through and we had a wonderful afternoon.
The Guide Vanessa was very kind. She has a thorough understanding of the history and style of architecture
We were pleasantly surprised to find that our tour was in a van for just the three of us. Our guide was knowledgeable and spoke clear English. We feel that we got excellent value for the money.
It was very nice. It gives you an idea of what the city as a whole and the center of the city looks like. My suggestion is to write down the name of some of the places as you go through the tour and later on take a taxi (which is relatively cheap) and go back to some of the places that you may want to revisit or visit more!
My husband and I were fortunate to have Elena as a guide. She was very well-informed and spoke English. Our group was very small--just one other person. We were staying with relatives in Miraflores and were picked up and returned to a hotel near us. We were also thankful for the excellent driver of the van, David, who navigated the horrendous Lima traffic skillfully. Our drive into Lima took us past local sites, including ruins and olive groves. The official tour included the Plaza de Armas, Cathedral and San Francisco Monastery. This was a good experience.
Our tour guide and driver were wonderful -- our guide was very knowledgeable about the city, provided great restaurant and bar recommendations for our evening plans, and was able to communicate with us (in English) perfectly. I would highly recommend the tour!
It was a very interesting experience. I was the only one and my guide was very knowlegdable, very pleasant and ready to adjust what he was showing to me depending my interest. I would definitively recommend it.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We had the benefit that we were the sole people on the tour. Made us appreciate the beautiful city of Lima.
Pick up was on time by our guide Ursula. This was a great overview of Lima, Plaza de Armas, Cathedral, San Franciscan Monastery/catacombs and Parque del Amor. Ursula was great. No waiting in lines anywhere. Whether it's your 1st time or if you've already been there briefly, I recommend this tour.
I booked this trip at short notice, and wasn't sure if it would all work out OK. I needn't have worried. The driver and my guide turned up spot on time, and I was the only guest making my tour effectively a private one. The sites visited were very interesting. A highly recommended experience.
Quick way to explore the main tourist spots. It was nice to have a tour guide providing the history for a couple of the stops. The tour bus was clean and prompt.
My daughter and I were the only passengers on our tour. We were able to leave the van and explore Lima on foot. We visited the highlights and learned interesting facts about the city. Our guide, Ursula, was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and proud of her city and heritage. Great tour.
Rosa was an amazing guide. She knows the city well and tailored the tour to my interests. I didn't feel rushed at venues where I wanted to spend more time. She even offered to take pictures of me at scenic points since I was traveling alone. I hope she's my tour guide when I return with my family.
We received a private tour by a highly skill professional and driver. At one church we were handed off to a local expert and then reunited to continue the tour. By the end, we were well oriented to the history and important sites in Lima. We would highly recommend this tour!
We were surprised that our Lima City tour turned out to be a private tour with our great tour guide named Rosa. My husband and I enjoyed it and she was very knowledgeable.
