This is an eye opening experience, that is a must for families with children. In the US, we don't really have an appreciation for how many people live in other parts of the world.

I took the Shanty Town tour with Daisy this morning and then a bike tour along the Pacific with Gustavo this afternoon. An amazing day! The Shanty Town tour will make it to my all time great experiences list. What wonderful people! We could all learn from them about resiliency, about building a strong community and about caring for one... More

The overall tour is average. Although they were key points of interest in Lima, we felt we didn't get enough time to see each of the sites. We opted to take a taxi back to our hotel from the Magic Water and Dance show so we had more time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area and sites... More

I did a full-day tour with Haku: shanty town in the morning, then lunch, then palaces and churches in the afternoon. It was absolutely fascinating, and it gave me a unique view of both the poverty and opulence in Lima. The tour group consisted of just me, so I received unparalleled attention and service. I had a driver, one tour... More

I had a sixteen hour layover in Lima on my way from Cusco back to Canada. When I checked out tour times with Haku Tours I discovered that my flight would arrive an hour after scheduled time. I emailed them and they told me they would pick me up at the airport when my flight landed and they would organize... More

I took a tour with Haku tours that was unlike a typical city tour. Edwin, our guide, took us to the shanty town and it opened my eyes and heart. We were able to interact on a very personal level with the residents of the shanty town. I got to experience the generous, loving spirit of the people of the... More

I had a fantastic tour of the Pachacamac pyramid complex! The tour guide was so knowledgeable - he didn't just talk about what we were seeing but also the religious and historical significance of the site. He also gave information about the modern situation surrounding the site, including the shanty towns you can see and the green valley below. It... More

I had a great experience touring Villa El Salvador (the shantytown or pueblo jóven tour). I was concerned that the tour might feel exploitative or distant, but it did not at all. It was a warm, personal, positive walk through a community that otherwise would be inaccessible to an American like me without Spanish. Edwin, my guide, is the founder... More

I had the opportunity of going to a shanty town with Edwin and it was refreshing to see hard working people who seem happy with very little, but are friendly, warm, with a sharing spirit and a sense of doing the best for their family and their community. It was clear that Edwin belongs there. As we walked around people... More

I LOVED my tour with Haku tours. I did a full day tour. It began with the City of Kings Tour where our knowledgeable guide told us the ins and outs of Lima from a local's eyes. He showed us the main areas of the city and we got some delicious churros from a street vendor. He even helped me... More
