    The guide was pleasant but not knowledgeable, and if she was she didn't share it. I have to imagine Peru has a pretty rich history and culture. We did dot hear any of this.We have been on hundreds of walking tours around the world and this one was the worst. No stories, history, or back stories. My wife and I would not recommend this tour at all.

    Great trip, Jorge was really knowledgeable of the area and flexible to change the route. Definitely will recommend it. Riding the local bus system was a nice treat. Especially a packed Metropolitano.

    Our guide was very knowledgeable and showed us many things in the city that we would have otherwise missed. She was also very flexible when it came to rearranging the schedule as some of the sights we had already seen. Highly recommend.

    Jorge was wonderful. We were only in Lima for a day before heading on to Cusco, and our guide helped us make the most of it. We visited Lovers Park in Miraflores and the Bridge of Sighs in Barranco. We also got to watch the rehearsal for some of the Independence Day celebrations at the Governor’s Palace. We tasted chocolates and Pisco. The people of Lima are lovely and friendly and Jorge was extremely knowledgeable about his country and city. He took great photos of my wife and I and knew right where to go to get the great shots. We highly recommend him.

    In November 2019 I had a tour with Julio, and now I can say that it was my best sightseeing tour in the year. Julio is a nice guide/buddy, and this tour is very well organized. Julio picked me up by calling me to my room at the hotel front desk exactly at 9:00AM. During the tour we saw many places of Lima, including the local market, the historic center, Parque de la Muralla and Barranco District. Julio knows every aspect of Lima transportation system, so we were able to move between important places quickly and without traffic jams. The tour took 4 hours, and they were action-packed hours. You won't be able to finish early and in fact you will be a little exhausted after the tour. I recommend that you take this particular sightseeing tour and another tour outside of Lima. While this is a good tour, there is a lot places you need to see outside of Lima in Peru.

    We had a wonderful time with Josie. She walked us through all the right spots and their history. Allowed for alterations to tour. "Oh, you want to look at that. Sure."
