  • Enjoyed the walking sightseeing tour. The guide was fluent in English and gave details of the sights we saw on the 3 hour tour.
    Would recommend it to anyone.

  • A really nice tour of Lima for half a day. It was good to see the sites of Miraflores and the centre of town. There were some lovely parks and squares that we saw via the bus, and it would have been nice to see them as part of the tour. Mary was a good guide, her English was fantastic and was able to explain the history of the city. My friend and I didn't take the transport back to our hotel after the tour, we decided to walk around the centre of town, well worth your time. I recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the sights of Lima in a short period of time.

  • The tour is a good starting point to get your bearings and see the major attractions, however my partner did the tour a few weeks previously and had a better time. I was the only one on the tour, and I couldn’t help but feel the guide was rushing a bit, trying to make the most of an easy day.

  • We started at the Park of Love and then went down to the Plaza de Armas to see the Cathedral and Dominican Convent. Our guide Gabriella was very nice and informative. She pointed out landmarks along the way as well as giving us some background on the conquest and each site we visited. The only drawback I found was that the tour was too short to completely explore each place we visited. It was only me and my husband on this tour, so that was nice.

  • Great tour!

  • With only 1 full day dedicated to seeing Lima on our Peru trip, this trip was absolutely perfect for my friend and I. We were able to see all that Lima has to offer outside of Miraflores. The history in Lima is so interesting and we were so thankful for this tour.

  • We were picked up in a mini bus and then transferred to another small tour bus - this changeover wasted some time, but otherwise the tour was very good. Pesonalized tour guide walked us through all the most interesting parts of Lima.

  • 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.
