We had a full day tour and found it very fun and informative. Our guide Eliana was very knowledgeable and showed us a lot of things we would not be able to see by ourselves. Lima is not exactly a city where it is easy to get around for a first time visitor and having local help is crucial. Overall... More

They were extremely professional, punctual and courteous. Cindy explained everything of Lima in great detail. They customized the tour to cater to our requests. We went to Pachacamac, Barranco district, Central Lima and Fountain park. Felt very safe and secure in their hands all the time. Highly recommend them.

Everything with this tour company was friendly, professional, and went like clockwork. Sandra and Alonso were fantastic about responding to my questions and e-mails, tour guide Mariela was a great tour guide, and driver Patrick handled crazy, chaotic Lima traffic like a walk in the park. Highly recommend!!

Peruvian Local Friends were very pleasant and responsive to my e-mails. My flight schedule kept changing and they were very accommodating of my requests. I had a twelve hour layover in Lima on my way back to the USA. I had no problems with the pick-up and drop-off at the airport. I enjoyed the pace of the tour as I... More

Did both a Cusco city tour and then arranged the sacred valley tour with transport from Cusco to Ollantamabo. Great personalized itinerary for just the two of us based on what we wanted to see and experience. Highly knowledgable and professional guides for each trip. Safe transport to Sacred Valley.

We had a great day. Our guide was very informative, and passionate about what she was teaching! The tour was very accommodating to all of our wants and needs and we couldn't have been happier.

We only had one day in Lima before heading to Cusco. Read the TA reviews and booked theses guys. They were great; they did everything they promised to do to include a timely pick-up and drop-off. Saw all the local sights but, most importantly, went to all the local places. Best was lunch: on the way to the changing of... More

Dear Peruvian Friends 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.

Best,

Emilie
