    Fantastic cultural tour, highly recommended. Mayrol was an outstanding guide and provided a lot of interesting details at the different locations we visited. He was happy to adjust the tour as necessary and was very attentive to our needs.

    Good way to see key sights in Lima. The Santo Domingo convent was a nice stop that is not something most tourists get to see

  • 06-Nov-2022

    If you only have a short time in Lima, this tour is highly recommended. Our guide and driver were top notch, the guide was well educated in Peruvian history and economics and made the tour a wonderful learning experience. He also spoke excellent English and was fun!

    Liliana was a wonderful, knowledgeable tour guide. This was our first tour in Lima, and it gave us a great overview of the city and of Peru. A perfect way to start our Peruvian adventure.

    Great tour for orienting yourself in the city and getting to know Lima. I appreciated the hotel pick up and we did a fair amount of walking. Great tour!

  • 07-Oct-2022

    Excellent introduction and overview of Lima and Peru covering the Old Town. Our guide was very knowledgeable, personable and spoke excellent English. The driver was nice, helpful and safe.

    The scheduled tour stops did not happen. They were closed for election day. Viator should have anticipated this and given us other options ahead of time. We were a group if 8 and everyone was disappointed. The tour guide did tge best she could given the circumstances. We gave 2 more tours ahead of us here in peru and we hope that there are no more surprises!

    Lima's main square was beautiful! The guide was very nice and knowledgeable. We saw a lot of things we couldn't have seen on our own.

    Low rating for this trip because the company put me on a Spanish speaking tour with a very nice guide that provided me some background in English. She answered my question but I only got 10 percent in English of what she said in Spanish to the other particpants.
