We saw everything we asked for and a whole lot more. He was very personable, spoke flawless English and easily adapted his plans to our requests. Peruvian... More

Not only Rodrigo speaks a perfect english, he is also incredibly knowledgeable about the the history, politics, and other topics linked to Lima and Peru in general. If like me, you have a limited time to spend in Lima, and you don't want... More

I was picked up from the airport by Alberto, who took me directly to my hotel. My tour of Lima commenced less than an hour later. Rodrigo took me to many interesting places during our three and half hour tour. I was unfamiliar with the city, so he took me to perhaps a dozen of the most interesting Lima sites;... More

We had the pleasure of being met by a fluent English speaking tour guide called Rodriguez. He let us at the hotel and took us around in local taxis (we paid on top of the tour) to the city centre and was very knowledgeable. We visited the main square area and the catacombs. We also went to the Barranco district... More

We were not in hurry , but 5 hours passed very quickly. Rodrigo is so knowledgeable and so nice to be with him. He responded so well to... More

Had a wonderful day with Antonella and Alonzo today. Antonella knows everything about the city and its history. We had great flexibility to adapt to things we wanted to do and see. Saw 8 departments in the area and enjoyed every minute. Ceviche at Mercado 1 was a treat.

Our cruise ship shuttle delivered us to the pickup point half an hour early. Fortunately, the driver was there early too. We stopped to pick up our guide, Rodrigo, and he was unphased by the schedule change. We enjoyed the tour very much, and also liked that we could customize it to meet our interests. Rodrigo was knowledgeable and answered... More
