  • Th The actual hours of the tour was about 3-3.5 hours, short of 4 hours due to traffic jam in Lima. The ancient buildings of Lima were destroyed by war and earthquake hence majority of the buildings in historical area were rebuilt. The structure is poorly rebuilt. The tour spent too much time at the monastery and story of Saint. The advantages of taking the tour is avoid busy traffic and safer in tour bus. Disadvantage Locations covered is limited and Lima is lack of interesting place of attraction.

  • Good start to understand the city.

  • The guide was very informative. They took us around the city and we learned some of the history and its surrounding areas. She was very friendly and my wife and I had a good experience.

  • If you only have a few days in Lima this is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. The day we went there was a protest in Lima but the tour operators did everything they could to get through the police barriers and show us the sights. Quite a focus on visiting churches / cathedral but you still get a good look at different parts of Lima.

  • Disappointing in that I had gone on the exact same tour with another company Condor Travel the day before. Viator didn't provide sufficient details about the sites to be visited so that I would know beforehand. Waste of money.

  • The guide met us at our hostal on time. The tour was fun and informative.

  • Great tour

  • The tour was great and I was picked up at my hotel. We had plenty of time to sight-see and it was very relaxing.

  • Very good tour. Learned a lot about Lima on this tour.

  • You will enjoy this tour! Seeing so many things around Lima was one of the highlights of our trip to Peru.
