We had a 5 hour layover on our trip from Buenos Aires to Cusco, and we didn't want to spend it all in an aiport, so we contacted Lima Mentor to set up a couple hour city tour of Lima. It turned out to be a great experience--the tour was easy to set up, our guide met us at the... More

Just returned from our trip to Lima and the Larco tour was a highlight and at the top of our list for best experience. Miguel was very professional and knowledgeable about Lima & Peru. My husband enjoyed talking politics with him. The docent at the Larco was great. Very enthusiastic and a real passion for her work and the exhibit.... More

We chose the full day Lima Historic Center - Barranco tour. We were thrilled with our guide Martha and with our tour choice. The included lunch was in a delightful building and featured authentic Peruvian cooking. Even though we are not shoppers, we enjoyed the locally made crafts and products at the shopping stops. All in all, a thoroughly lovely... More

We were part of a group of 12 who used Lima-Mentor DayTours for 2 days and one night, as our cruise ship stopped here overnight during our South American cruise. We highly recommend using this reliable company-Cynthia the manager, Vanessa, our tour guide, and our van driver were caring, highly professional and well organized. From beginning to end our tour...

We booked a private tour through Lima Mentor and Cynthia Caceres. We spent the day seeing many of the usual sites in Lima and then did the Lima at Night tour. All in all, the full day tour with guide Vanessa was great after I made a mental attitude adjustment over missing the changing of the guards. My husband and... More

I have traveled twice with Lima Mentor tours. First for a single day semi-private tour in Lima in October of 2012 and the second time in October 2014 for a full 8-day custom private tour of Lima and the Sacred Valley. I have nothing but praise for Cynthia and her guides and drivers. The tours are well organized, safe and... More

I can not recommend LimaMentor more highly than this. The whole experience, from the booking to the guide and driver was just smooth and trouble free. We got exactly what we wanted, and more. The booking and planning through Cynthia Caceres was quick and courteous. We wanted to combine elements of two of their scheduled half day tours into the... More

Vanessa, our guide, and Alex, our driver where both fantastic. We not only saw so very much in two 1/2 day tours, but also learned so much about the city's history from Vanessa. This was a great value and truly enjoyable experience. Can't say enough about how very pleased we were. Vanessa's English was perfect and Alex's driving was extraordinary.... More

I highly recommend the Guide service of Lima Mentor. The response to my online booking request was prompt and booking the tour was easy. Our tour guide, Claudia Ruiz, picked us up promptly and gave us an outstanding 4 hour tour. Her English was impeccable, her knowledge was enviable. She was friendly, patient, and had a great sense if humor.... More
