This is a very good company to do tours with. We completed the shanty town tour. Very informative, very safe and an unreal way to see Lima. If you only have a few hours in Lima contact these guys and see what they can do for you

My husband and I arranged for a Christmas Day city tour of Lima before catching a flight to Cusco. Our driver and guide picked us up promptly at our hotel at 9:00 am and was able to store our luggage in the trunk of the car during the tour and drop us off at the airport immediately after. Our guide... More

Haku Tours is the best way to experience Lima and to give back to the city. With Edwin and Santiago, we spent two days learning and seeing everything there is to learn about Lima and it's people. Our guides were excellent in showing us the real Lima with its history and with its present day way of life by visiting... More

We were part of a group that used this company for 2 x day tours whilst in Lima overnight on a cruise. We were a group of 12 and the company provided an English speaking guide, a driver and a 15 seater bus. The first day included a visit to the archeological site, lunch, the catacombs and a water fountain... More

Our guide Edwin was superb! We spent the morning visiting the shanty town in Lima. Edwin grew up here and was extremely knowledgeable and interesting to be with. It allowed us an insight into a part of Lima most people will never see. Against expectations, people are happy, courteous and have a genuine sense of community. Wonderful to see and... More

My husband and I took the Shantytown tour a few weeks ago with Santiago and really enjoyed it. It was great to experience something that you would never see if you simply took a trip to Lima; it seemed almost like Lima's hidden face. The community spirit is heartwarming; everyone is very friendly; and Haku is very supportive of local... More

This tour was excellent. I would strongly recommend both the City of Kings and the Shanty Town Tour. I selected Haku tours due to the fact that I saw some of the proceeds from their tours went to benefit the local community, but I was not expecting to witness where these proceeds would be going on the Shanty Town tour....

The best part of this tour that we took with Edwin was his passion for the area and his ability to bring the spirit of the place alive. Even though the site looks unprepossessing, when Edwin explained the location of the temples and the practices, we could visualise it. As an indigenous person who follows the Incan religion, Edwin was... More

We had a very long layover in Lima, so we arranged for Haku Tours to pick us up and drop us off at the airport after spending the day with Edwin. We toured Shanty town and also did the City of Kings tour. Edwin was extremely professional and knowledgeable. His passion and understanding of Lima made for a wonderful day!... More

We did a cooking class with Haku tours. First we visited the market with our private tour guide and chef. They showed us around on the marked and told a lot of fun facts about the different local products. Afterwards we went back to a hostel where we started the cooking class in the garden. The surroundings were very nice,... More
