Good arrangement for the accommodation, they usually choose the hotel within the local shopping area with restaurants. Have a guide which provides help and assistance throughout the journeys. Arrange pick up from and drop off to and from the airport & train station. Only some tours arrangement especially the Machu Picchu tour is not good. The rest are done pretty.

We did Lima and then Cusco. In Cusco the logistics was impeccable, the quality of or guides and the timing was great. Places to eat while on tour were very good. The accommodations (hotels) were of very good quality, centric and close to everything (in Cusco or in Aguas Calientes). We managed to visit Valle Sagrado, Ollantaytambo, Pisac, Machu Picchu,...

We debated visiting Lima because we would only have one full day. Lima Mentor designed an excellent itinerary from 9 to 6 that allowed us to dive into Lima's history, culture, economy and art. Our guide Fernando was extremely knowledgeable and interesting and our driver navigated the traffic wonderfully. The tour was pricey, but so much broader and deeper than... More

I did the private one day tour with Vanessa. It was a very insightful and pleasant day out, and I learned a lot about the local culture, past and present. I highly recommend using this service.

Everything went smoothly beginning with booking trough Cynthia till waving a farewell. Our hosts Vanessa and Lucio were good indeed and we enjoyed their company. The car was clean and the driver punctual. The 3-hours tour was also OK. Given short time we had, we managed to see the essentials of Lima and were given a wealth of interesting information.

We had a couple of days in Lima before heading to Cusco. We booked the all day walking tour of Historic Lima with Lima Mentor tours. Cynthia was prompt in responding to our questions about the tour and booking was easily done by email. Our guide Blanca was excellent. She met us promptly at our hotel and our day was... More

Our family of 5 - 3 teens and 2 parents, did the Lima Full Day tour. The tour was excellent and even though we were stuck in traffic (because the road next to the ocean was closed due to high waves) and did not get to see the catacombs and the church in downtown Lima - it was still a... More

As we had already seen much of the historic old part of Lima, we had to readjust our pre-determined tour. Cecilia the guide with Lima Mentor was wonderful and they were flexible enough to rearrange the itinerary to meet our needs. We saw more of Lima than perhaps otherwise and we enjoyed areas such as the Bohemian Barranco as well... More

Our last day in Peru was a whirlwind tour of Lima with Lima Mentor. It was the perfect way to see Lima's highlights. Our guide, Rosa, was fantastic. She could tell we were tired (and a little under the weather) and kept a close eye on our safety after dark in a crowded City square.

The tour was excellent. The tour leader went out of her way to pick up 4 tourists who had difficulty finding the group and even managed to add 2 extra tourists. We enjoyed our day and at all times felt very safe in Lima. We visited the Larco Herrera Museum, the Indian Market, the cathedral and civic square. Thank you!!
