So glad we did this tour! Saul was a very knowledgeable, generous and fun guide. We saw & learnt so much! Amazing people, architecture & history. Our tour was on Saturday afternoon and were blown away by all the street performers. The squares, cathedral & catacombs were brilliant. So glad we did this tour. Hotel pickup & dropoff icing on the cake! Thank you :)

We visited two public squares and saw several historic buildings. Natalya was friendly, knowledgeable and more importantly, very enthusiastic. The tour was very good. We were picked up on time. We traveled by van before the walking tour.

Varied and entertaining Nataly was a great tourist guide! She knows a lot about the city, is cheerful and very entertaining. We had a great time with her! The catacombs are a bit dark, but very exciting to see. And the Peruvian churros were super fine. On the way to the old town and back you will experience the traffic of Lima, but this is also part of the Lima experience.

Amazing experience It was amazing, we walked around the market and then we attended the cooking class, tasted fruit and potatoes and prepared our own food, we felt immersed in the Peruvian culture. I recommend it to everyone who wants to get to know the culture of this wonderful country!

Lima for everyone We got the privilege to be introduced to the beautiful Lima by two guides, Junior and Sandy. Both of them very knowledgeable, kind and patient, showed us the city in an amicable way, making sure everyone had an entertaining experience. Definitely worth the price.

Great tour through Miraflores and Barranco I really enjoyed the tour. It was a good way to get a first impression of miraflores and barranco. I recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in getting a good first impression of what these districts have to offer. John, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly and could also provide some helpful recommendation for good and drinks. I felt safe throughout the whole tour, as we rode along the bike paths.

Catacombs, churros and more Like many tourists to Lima, we booked a hotel in Miraflores because of the location and the convenience of great restaurants. But, we very much wanted to see the historical areas of Lima as well. This tour (which was quite reasonably priced) did a great job of giving us a good intro to the important landmarks of the Centro Historico. (Better call) Saul was an articulate and entertaining tour guide. He gave us some interesting insights into some of the monuments and buildings (like when the fountain in the main square was filled with Pisco). We got to tour the Church of St Francis of Assisi and go into the catacombs below. And, to cap off the tour we had the opportunity to sample Lima's version of the humble churro. I highly recommend.
