Jimmy was a great tour guide! His love of history is evident. Give this a go if you are at all interested in a deeper look at colonial history and its effects on what would be known as Lima. I learned much more than I expected! Always a good thing!

Jimmy led us through a very interesting tour of the city, and took the time to explain with great detail how the city has come to establish itself as one of the most important capitals of South America. Him and his colleague drove us around safely and also brought us to more local areas of the city. We definitely would recommend this tour if you only have a short while in the capital.

Can't beat Jimmy's enthusiasm! Wish I could have taken a longer tour, so many interesting things to see and learn about. Great fun sharing and tasting at our lunch in the oldest bar in Lima. Also appreciated the taxi driver and pick-up from my hotel.

Very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We learned a great deal about the city, the Spanish influence and history, the current government, the.catholic presence, and we were lucky to be in the city for a religious holiday and indigenous people in a colorful parade.

A quick tour through the old part of the city. Easy to miss this section given the sprawl of Lima.
