My wife and I took the Lima tour with our guide, Mariela, and our driver, Alberto. Both do their jobs beautifully. Their teamwork is exemplary. Alberto made us feel safe in the crazy Lima traffic, and he was always on-the-spot for our meeting points. A real pro, Alberto even stayed with the car after we invited him to lunch with... More

We found out about this tour company from trip advisor and had Sandra and Alonso as our guides for the 5-hour walking tour. They were very knowledgeable and prepared with lots of archived photos to show the before and after to go along with the explanations. We saw all of the highlights and it was also personalized to the things... More

Rodrigo (guide) and Alberto (driver) met us at the airport mid afternoon and waited patiently for our flight from Cusco which was late arriving. They whisked us downtown ( luggage safely stored in the trunk) where we went on a very interesting walking tour of the sites of downtown Lima. We were lucky that Rodrigo was able to get us... More

It seems a lot of people end up spending a day in Lima at either the beginning or end of their Peruvian vacation. Lima in (their) winter is not the most attractive city - sprawling, overcast skies, damp, but still worth a tour of the city which is easily accessible from the airport. I went online to try to find... More

Tour guide (Rodrigo) has great knowledge of Lima, toured the neighborhood of Barranco then took a taxi to historical center of Lima and visited all the sights, the catacombs of the church was the highlight of the evening. Even recommended a great restaurant, Tanta, that we went to after tour ended. Would definitely recommend this day tour to any tourist... More

We loved the 2 days tour that we've taken with them. They're so sympathetic, courteous and well informed, providing us with many informations as we demand. We visited local markets, many places, and understand more about Peru and Lima history. We strongly recommend them to anybody who is interested in knowing this beautiful country.

We were travelling to Lima to explore the country our son chose to do his study abroad program in. We were picked up on time by Patrick and taken to our hotel. We organized tours for 3 days and learned so much! We had Mariela as a tour guide the first day, she took us to try our first Pisco... More

Following a flight change through Lima, we found ourselves having twelve hours to kill. After conducting a Google search, we found Peruvian Local Friend and organised for them to pick us up from the airport and take us on a tour of Lima. Mariela and our driver were waiting for us at the airport and took us straight into Lima... More

I had an 10 hour layover in Lima and decided to take a tour with Peruvian Local Friend. I was picked up at the airport by a driver and Mariela right on time and was driven to the city centre. Mariela took me on a walking tour and was a wonderful tour guide. She is so knowledgeable and I learned... More

We very especially lucky to have "Peruvian Local Friend" founders as our guides. Sandra and Alonso met us at our hotel for the afternoon tour which started in Barranco and ended with a nice fountain show at the park. They are very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent insight into the history and architecture of Lima. By the end of... More
