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.
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.
The tour definitely started on time and ended exactly 3 hrs. It almost did cover major points of sightseeing in a short period
We did the night tour. Magical fountain circuit was excellent - enjoyed the laser light show. Guide gave good information throughout the tour.
I enjoyed the Lima Open-Top Sightseeing Tour. The two guides were informative although the female guide talked very fast in English and with her Spanish accent it was difficult to understand her at times. The male guide was excellent. I think the inside of the bus should have had air conditioning because as the day got hotter, the inside of the bus became hotter also. I thought I purchased the Optional Callao Tour but apparently I did not. It was confusing as to what I originally purchased. Due to the traffic in Lima, it was a good thing I did not purchase the optional Callao tour because we just had enough time to sightsee and get back to the ship on time. We had to take a taxi from the ship to the shopping area. It cost us $30 to take a taxi and $25 to take a taxi back to the ship. It was also confusing where to meet the bus because the shopping area was very large. Fortunately a local policeman helped us.
Not too long. Great guide. A little rushed in the Historical Center but fast pace is a god pace :)
Very nice evening tour and the fountain light show was very enjoyable.
Found the mix of riding and stops with walking very enjoyable. An additional stop or so would likely make it a 5 star. Did have difficulties in getting from cruise port in Callao to downtown Lima with no access to reliable licensed taxi's. Relented to take the cruise ships "Lima on your own tour" which took you to Lima district for start of this tour at a cost of more than the open-top tour! Adding a round trip Callao-Lima tour with a pickup/drop-off at the port in Callao would fix this (surely they could fill a bus from a cruise ship of 2600 passengers!).
