I went on the full day Shanty tour including the Pachacamac pyramids <- which was our first stop. I was on the tour my byself with the amazing guide Jose who had an amazing wealth of knowledge on both the places we visited & Peru in general. The Pachacamac tour was very interesting & highly recommended before visiting Machu Picchu.... More

We booked a tour of El Salvador Shanty Town in Lima with Haku Tours. Our guides, Edwin and Jose were excellent and provided us with an interesting and informative tour in the Shanty town including its history and relationship with the rest of Lima. We spent two more days volunteering in the Shanty Town helping to build an addition onto... More

I did a cooking class - the class was just my father and myself and was a wonderful experience. The tour guide who picked us up spoke perfect English and provided us with some wonderful history/customs. We went to the market and bought our ingredients; testing a few local fruit along the way. We then went to the cooking area... More

I visited Lima on Tuesday November 4 and had the pleasure of doing the tour with Haku Tours and José as the guide. They really exceeded my expectations.

Haku Tours is dedicated to bettering their community and to showcasing it to the world. I wish everyone who visits Lima could spend time with one of their guides. They are so knowledgeable about all aspects of Peruvian society. You can't go wrong with any of their offerings. I wish I could have stayed in Lima long enough to take... More

These guys are the best! They are so passionate about what they are doing, it really makes you want to stop and take a moment to look at yourself. We did the half day city tour and then the full day Shanty tour including the Pachacamac pyramids. From the beginning their communication was great and when our flight was delayed... More

We booked a city tour with Haku tours just prior to our arrival in Lima. La Señora Lopez made sure that all was set, that our pick-up would be on time, we received numerous confirmation e-mails, before and after arriving in Lima. On the set date, our transport showed up promptly at 8:45 and as promised, there was only us... More

I had a fabulous tour through the Shanty town. Where I learned about the difficulties about the living conditions and discriminations. But I also came accross determination,optimism and strength. This Shanty tour is not about sights or landmarks but it is a chance to see a community of empowerment and the realities of day to day life.

I had a wonderful time walking around Barranco. I had a great guide from Haku tours who showed me all the pretty places in Barranco. The tour was very relaxed and informal. I've learnt so much about Peru and its culture with some very interesting guide's personal insights into Lima and Barranco. Haku tours use all profit from the tours... More

We learned a new quechua phrase today: haku. This means let's go. And we did! This morning we took a tour of downtown Lima with Jose of Haku Tours whose fascinating perspective and knowledge of Peruvian history only rivaled his wit and command of English language. You will not regret a moment of this tour! Haku!
