We had a great walking and public transport tour of LIma. Our tour guide Julio met us a location in Lima and from there we spent the day first taking a cab, walking through historical Lima, and then a bus to the beach towns to check out this vibrant area. Our guide Julio took us to a great Peruvian lunch restaurant to make the day complete. Because we were on a cruise ship we dock in Callao, the port town to Lima. This is not a great area, their are port restrictions that don't allow passengers to get a local cab, so our plans on meeting our guide at the agreed location was in jeopardy. But the tour company came through the day before we docked, using emails at sea so that we could arrange to meet at a shopping center convenient to us and our guide. I really appreciated their flexibility. For those on a cruise ship know that getting out of the port may be difficult if you are not on a cruise line tour.
The tour was great. My husband and I aren't big on group tours, so having a private guide to take us to the most important sites in Lima was fantastic. Our guide, David, was really informative and a really great person. It felt like a local friend was showing us around his city. The walking/public transport aspect of this trip was also great--not only for the local experience, but also because the traffic is so crazy in the city that we got around a lot faster and more efficiently. We saw a lot more of this beautiful city than we would have otherwise.
This tour was an all day walking tour around several areas of Lima....we used public transportation, which was nice to see how the people of Lima move around the sprawling city. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke wonderful English....he taught us a lot about the Peruvian history and culture. I would say this tour is for those in moderate to good physical shape, as we put in at least 8 miles of walking and had to stand on the buses.....but worth the activity.
Wonderful day with our guide Julio. Extensive knowledge of the history and culture of Lima, complete with pictures of the constructions that stood previously on some sites. In depth guided tour of the main market. Tour agenda flexible according to our interests. Attentive to our safety and comfort.
My daughter and I took this walking tour on a Sunday from 9am-3pm. Mr Lazaro met us at the hotel right on time. We visited Miraflores, the Historic Center and Barranco, enjoying public transportation all day long which is excellent in Lima. Modern, fast, neat and user friendly. Mr Lazaro was very knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. He recommended a great restaurant in the Historic Center where we had Lima's well known seafood. He taught us about history, economy, social issues in Lima etc etc. We highly recommend this private tour!! Worth it!!
This is a must when visiting Lima. We were collected from our hotel and spent the day walking and catching the local bus in and out of downtown Lima. Our tour guide was fantastic. A young man who looked after us extremely well the whole time. We visited the local market which was an eye opener, walked most of downtown Lima and arrived back to Miraflores where we enjoyed a late lunch and coffee with him. He was extremely passionate and well educated. Please pass on my thanks to this tour company, they did a great job. Everything went like clock work and it gave us a great understanding of Lima's culture.
Excellent tour with a good guide. Everything to plan
A great tour and our guide was amazing, even though we were significantly delayed.
