    The tour was perfect for the short time we had available and would definitely take a longer one next time. Miguel the driver was punctual. Nora the guide was delightful, very knowledgeable about Lima’s history, economy, politics and culture and spoke excellent English. Be prepared for long drives in crazy city traffic jams.

    We had a great private 4 hour tour of the City of Lima. Both our driver and guide were great hosts. We learned a great deal about the rich history of Peruvians and explored some incredible landmark sights. We even got lucky navigating rush hour traffic at the end of the day. The hotel pick up and drop off was perfect !

    This is a very comprehensive tour of Lima. The highlight was, of course, the San Francisco Cathedral and Monastery, with a tour of the catacombs. Super interesting history. Be careful in the catacombs....low ceilings and crowded by tours, but worth it. Our tour guide Rosa was really knowledeable and friendly. Two things we would have changed. First, the tour felt rushed. It was an afternoon tour, so perhaps doing it in the morning would have been better. Our tour ended at 6 in the middle of rush hour. Horrendous traffic. Our driver was fantastic, but it took 1.5 hours to get back to Miraflores. Also, the tour needs a break for a snack or drink. It's rushed for a private tour. Consider shaping the tour in advance with your private guide.
