    Lucas was a great guide! We enjoyed seeing the catacombs and the water show was so interesting. It was so great to be picked up and dropped off at our hotel. The driver was great

    Amazing experience, and it's all thanks to Alex! She was so friendly and very knowledgeable about Peru and Lima. We learned a lot about the history of Peru, and she also gave us a lot of information as we walked through the historic area of Lima. The Water Magic Circuit was a really cool experience and the bicentennial show was impressive, giving a concise, visual summary of Peru's history. Wonderful evening and it far exceeded my expectations.

    A very nice tour of Lima. Simple but well executed, it allows you to take in a lot of what Lima has to offer in a short space of time. The catacombs and the magic water show are great experiences. Italo our tour guide spoke good English, and was very thorough and easy to get along with. Definitely recommend.

    The catacombs were a very interesting experience. We learned a lot about the religious history of the city. After, the water fountain display was very cool. Seeing how they incorporated Peruvian history into the water features was wonderful.

    Seeing the fountains at night was amazing. Puts the Bellagio a bit to shame. The colours, the lights and the amazing laser and picture projection was off the charts. It was a beautiful park and the light show is a must. Lots of room and good views but not a lot of seating. Most people had to stand.

    My ten-year-old daughter and her 13-year-old friend went on this tour with me. Our guide's name was Walter. It was us, Walter and the driver. We saw the laser light show beamed onto the fountain. Interesting concept. It told the story of Peru in lighted images. Then we walked under a long canopy of fountain water where we had our picture taken for approximately seven dollars. Finally, the children played in fountains springing up from the ground. We were there in October so the night was chilly it being early spring in Peru. My daughter got her pants wet and I asked Walter if we could stop at a store downtown to buy her another pair of pants and that's what we did. We drove on to El Beso or The Kiss. It is a park in Miraflores where the main attraction is this gigantic statue of a man and a woman locked in tight embrace and kissing. There were mostly couples milling around.

    Downtown, we went to the Church of San Francisco. Walter told us all about this church. We had been to the church the previous day and the catacombs underneath it are really worth the visit. Franciscan monks are still being buried there. In addition to the catacombs, the colorful tiles, intricate woodwork, the library of rare books and statues of the martyrs and how they were killed are all memorable and educational.

    Walter and the driver took us back to the Westin Hotel in San Isidro. The best part of the tour was the chance to get out of the hotel room at night and go somewhere with the children safely and pleasantly. I think it's a great idea. The only thing I would suggest is to add another destination or two to the itinerary. Even a stop by the Pacific Ocean to listen to the surf and breathe the fresh ocean air would be nice. The smog in Lima is extreme. We never saw a blue sky or the sun the whole week we were there. Herman Melville author of Moby Dick called Lima, Peru the strangest and saddest city in the whole world. He would know. He spent his life sailing around the world.
