This tour was the most meaningful and eye-opening tour one can possibly do in Lima. Eduar, my eccentric tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable about Lima and it's past/present cultural movement. His passion and charm will put you at ease from the minute you meet him. He showed me the real Lima, how many of them live and the memories and lessons I gained from this experience will never be forgotten as long as I live. This tour will open your eyes and soul.

An excellent experience giving some insights into shanty town living and the opportunity to meet some very welcoming residents. My English-speaking guide, himself a resident, was informative, interesting, and proud of the community projects, in which he was involved and which my tour would be helping to fund.

The tour was more than expected. It was nice to be able to meet people that live and work there. It was informative as well. Genie

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

I really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable, took interest in the guests, offered personal insights into Peruvian life and culture in an unbiased manner. This tour takes you to the Villa El Salvador shanty town, where tourists don't normally go and you will hear stories most tourists don't normally hear. This tour is 100 safe.

It is not your typical tour. The area we traveled through was very poor but perfectly safe. I would have felt fine traveling there by myself but Giovanni, our guide, made the trip even more fun and informative.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The tour was fantastic. We were picked up right on time from our hotel. We had two guides, Eduar Chuque and Jose Rodolfo, both of whom grew up in Shanty Town which made the whole visit even more interesting and informative. I would recommend this tour to anyone who likes to get off the beaten track and learn something about the people of Lima.
