With only one day to have a look at what Lima had to offer, we opted to do the Full Day Lima Experience. Every query to Cynthia was answered promptly - it always difficult booking such things from a distance and one never knows just what we are getting ourselves in for. On the day, our wonderful Guide Nancy and... More

Cynthia did a great job organising us a minivan and private driver (with co-driver) for our group trip to Lunahuana in January 2014. There was about 25 of us in total. Nice van with air-con and a bathroom which was perfect. Driver was very good and we did white water rafting, quad biking and horse riding. The hotel (Rumiwasi) had... More

Although Plan A had always been to use Lima Mentor, we were temporarily diverted by two recommendations for alternative travel agencies from our friend at the Embassy. Our choices were simplified, because one of the agencies never called us back and the other was about the same price as Lima Mentor, but without "lunch". Our guide, Erica, and our driver,... More

Overall the tour was excellent. However specifically booked English speaking tour and whilst most information was given in English, the guide spoke Spanish with the other passengers giving them extra information and leaving myself out of the conversations.

If you are planning a day or two in Lima as part of a trip to Peru, I have two pieces of advice: 1. You need to change your itinerary -- because a day or two in Lima will not be nearly enough time; and 2. You must have Lima Mentor help you to explore the city! We recently spent... More

We did a half day tour of the historic Center of Lima with Vanessa, our guide and Lucio ,our driver. We have been to Lima before and have travelled to the north and south of Peru with excellent guides. Vanessa surpassed all our expectations. As we walked the streets and visited the San Francisco monastery, San Domingo convent, the Lima... More

Cynthia Caceres is the founder and general manager. Cynthia is a very modern tech savvy lady who answered every one of our emails in a prompt and courteous manner. We combined her Two Day Shore Excursion with her One Day Modern City Tour and the Junius Peruvian Fiesta. Cynthia had warned us of the construction work at the Port of... More

This tour is exactly as described as the title states. We liked having a car come to pick us up and meeting our guide, Vanessa. The driver Lucio and Vanessa were both great. We liked that aspects of the tour which involve walking and then the car ride to see some of the sights. Now with many of these tours... More

The tour was rushed. We spent a lot of time in traffic, and parts of the promised itinerary were skipped entirely.
