Lima Mentor was everything we hoped for! Cynthia was quick to respond, provided essential information and was flexible when our cruise ship changed our drop-off location. Our tour guide, Vanessa, was perky, informative and moved our party of 6 along at a good pace. She made sure we saw what we desired and made great suggestions. Our driver had a... More

I booked this tour almost at the last minute of my trip and it was actually more than I expected. My guide Rosa was on time (which is a virtue I love in people), and she is well informed of her country's history. We did a brief sightseeing around Lima in our way to Huaca Pucllana and Huaca Huallamarca. Then... More

Our tour guide, Martha, was great - knowledgeable, fun, enthusiastic and a great communicator. We really enjoyed our time with her. We enjoyed going through different neighborhoods on the way into Lima's center, looking at various architectural styles. The museum she took us through was also very interesting, as were the catacombs/crypts under the monastery. Martha also gave us good... More

On 6/8/15, I took Lima Mentor´s Historical Buildings Tour. The tour was well designed by the company GM (Ms. Cynthia). It went beyond a walking city tour by taking us into Peru's history through the legacy of beautiful colonial buildings! I've learned a lot about Peru's history through the stories behind these buildings from an excellent tour guide (Ms. Martha).... More

We booked a full day tour of Lima with Lima Mentor and we had Martha as our Tour Guide. We had a very ambitious agenda to pack in a lot of different sites and activities to make the most out of our one day visit. We wanted to visit the typical sites, including the main Plaza, the Cathedral, the Larco... More

We booked a private tour to Pachacamac and were fortunate to have Claudia as our tour guide. After picking us up at our hotel and driving through Lima, she provided us wide and interesting insights into the historical, social and cultural history of Peru over the centuries. When we reached Pachacamac, we drove around and had opportunities to stop and... 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.

Dear Lima Mentor Tours,

I'm writing to see if your company has a guide who could help my husband and me explore historic sites and museums in the city of Lima on Sunday, January 18, Monday, January 19, with an option of Tuesday, January 20. I am a travel writer with an assignment on the Peruivan Amazon, and I will also be writing an article on must see places for travelers who are landing in Lima for a short time before going on river trips.

We have been looking at guidebooks of Lima, and think it would be a good idea to have walking tours of the Plaza Mayor area, perhaps on Sunday morning as people are coming and going from the Cathedral; the Miraflores Area (the Malecon and the artists’ markets at Parque Kennedy, plus art galleries); and the Barranca area (Pedro de Osma Museum),

There are a number of additional sites that sound fascinating, for instance the Larco Museum, the Church of San Francisco and the catacombs, Huaca Pucllana, and the Magic Water Circuit. If you would like, we can send you our entire list.

Can you advise me of your rates, and also recommend ways for us to tour the city with a combination of walks and car rides. We are also interested in your ideas for experiencing the everyday life of local residents.

Our hotel for the five days will be the Tierra Viva Miraflores Larco:

- Address: 180 Bolivar Street, Miraflores - Lima

- Phone number: + 51 (1) 6371003.

I look forward to hearing from you.
