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
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.

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.
