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

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.
