This was my best day in Peru. From the moment I stepped into the car, my guide Jean Paul Grillo started to tell me many things about Peru and Lima. Out of all my excursions I booked during my stay, Jean Paul was the most informative, friendly and knowledgeable. We explored the local market different to the cooking excursion market and sampled some snacks and fruits. I loved the shanty town experience and felt perfectly safe at all times. I enjoyed the warmth and friendliness of the locals and it was amazing to see their way of life. Felix's craft work in silver was fascinating to see. The kids were so friendly and eager to bring you their books to read. We had a cheeky shot of liquor with Maria the shop keeper. It was great to see the projects that Haku tours are developing, such as the nursery, medical centre and soup kitchen, to help assist the shanty towns and great to see a tourism country investing the money back into the community. I would recommend anyone to go on this tour and see the real life. There are some steps, but the guide will take it slow and go at your pace.
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
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.
