Amazing day
, Feb 2020
I highly recommend this tour. It was very informative and we got to see so much in one day. I am not a big fan of museums, but our guide Pamela made it extremely interesting. The history of this country is fascinating. Thanks for a day we will never forget. And a big shout out to Jorge who handles Lima crazy traffic like a pro!

Dear Stephanie thank you for sharing! So great you could learn and enjoy with Pamela! I know Jorge is a great driver. Lima’s traffic is challenging. Thank you!
Long day but you get to see a good chunk of Lima

I loved Martha she is a very well informed guide and made me feel really comfortable. The sites included are comprehensive and definitely the highlights of Lima. It is a group tour so you are rushed through to stay on schedule (especially with Lima traffic) and can barely feel the vibes of the city but that's expected. I got to see a lot but (personal preference) I would probably just pick one spot to tour and experience that fully rather than rush through. The tour is great and definitely recommend. Well organized, food was great. Car was comofrtable as well.

A dip into history
, Jan 2020
It was a wonderful trip to the past. Pamila my tour guide was very friendly, informative and knowledgeable . She explained everything nicely. I was treated as royalty. Lunch was perfect. Timing and schedule was suitable. Our driver Jorjes knew his way around . I really enjoyed the tour and would advise you to take it yourself. Engulfed into history. The last part of your which is the magical fountains was superb.

Andrea our tour guide and Carlos our driver for Lima Mentor showed my husband and I a terrific time. We only had a day in Lima and they met us at our hotel on time. Andrea is very knowledgeable and picked critically important sights. We couldn't believe how many sights we covered. Carlos is so patient and safely drove through crazy traffic.We left with great memories and Andrea and Carlos both kind are the best and professionals in every sense. They even showed us where the restaurant we planned to go for dinner is. Thank you for such memories. Hoping to return to Lima!

Very Informative and interesting

So glad I did the 1 day full tour of lima. With the time I had in lima I wouldn't have been able to see all these sites on my own. The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions. We stopped off for lunch at a local restaurant and the food was awesome. Overall a very good experience

Panoramic Pachacamac!
, Sep 2019
Andrea, and driver Mr. Roberto, will escort you during this full-day (apx 10 hours) of Pachacamac historic ruins, historic downtown Lima, and the "Circuito Magico Del Agua"! A solid two-hours to explore Pachacamac with knowledge from Andrea; a delicious Peruvian lunch in Barranco; plenty of walking time along Costa Verde, various placios; and San Francisco Convent and Santa Doningo Monastery. Conclude a complete day by walking through the city's Magic Water Circuit, featuring 13 neon-lighted fountains, concluding with a laser-light fountain show highlighting this fabulous city's culture, at approximately 7:15pm. A wonderful introduction to Lima, its culture, history, and Inca and pre-Inca lineage!

Excellent, friendly and helpful guide, and informative day
, Aug 2019
Jean Paul was a very friendly, considerate and knowledgeable guide.. with lots of enthusiasm and energy, and we had a great day with him.. he had a considerable knowledge of peruvian history, and the itinerary - including lunch (vegetarian for us - slightly difficult in Peru) was well done.. We could discuss all topics about Peruvian history, and current affairs freely with him, and the car driver was also quite friendly.. We wish Jean Paul well with his work and life. and thank him for a truly informative and enjoyable day!

Guide new the places very well and timed the attraction so that there was time to rest in between.Magic water circuit was the high light of the day. You may skip the going into the basement of the church if burial site with millions of bones in display is not your cup of tea.

Hello Rashmi, thank you for sharing! Thank you for visiting Lima and great you enjoyed!
Great Experience from a tour company with integrity and great customer service
, Jun 2019
I booked this tour for my first visit to Lima. My tour guide, Andrea, came to the hotel on-time and spoke fluent English. Andrea is very knowledgeable of Lima's history and local culture. However, the deepest impression Ms. Andrea has given me is her dedication to strive for the best customer experience as possible. At the San Franciscan Church, I asked to stop by a gift shop for some souvenirs, and among them, I purchased a bag of coffee beans from Chanchamayo. After returning to the hotel, I realized that the beans are beyond the date of expiration. I messaged Lima Mentor's Guide, the touring company, just to let them know about the disappointment due to my own negligence. Ms. Andrea went back to Lima City Center, on a Sunday, and purchased a fresh bag of Chanchamayo coffee. Customer satisfaction is difficult to earn, and Lima Mentor's Guide and Ms. Andrea has proven to go to the extra miles to earn that from their customers. I wish I can give them more than a 5 star review, because Lima Mentor's Guide and Ms. Andrea deserves the best review and appraise for their work and dedication. I will definitely come back and do this tour with my family, with Ms. Andrea and Lima Mentor's Guide.
