We booked Peruvian Local Friend for two half-day private tours of Lima after reading their reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. They were tops. In our emails confirming our tours Alonso and Sandra also offered us their airport pick up service. It was nice to arrive at Lima’s airport and be met with a friendly face that then... More

I arrived in Lima a day before my organized tour of Peru was to begin. Thanks to Sandra and Alonso it was very easy to arrange what I wanted to do-a five hour tour of several Lima churches and convents along with the Museo Andres Del Castillo. All details were clearly explained beforehand for example the cost of entering each... More

We arranged for two days of touring along with airport transfers in Lima through Peruvian Local friend. Sandra and Alonso were very attentive in seeing to it that all of the details were taken care of in advance and that we were clear on what would be included. We were also given the leeway to make alterations to our itinerary... More

My sister and I had a fourteen hour layover in Lima and after much searching, decided to give the eight hour tour from Peruvian Local friend a try. Every thing went very smoothly, from the airport pick up, to the walking and driving tours of the city including Miraflores, Barranco, visiting a local market and having delicious ceviche for lunch....

Alonso and Sandra were immensely professional , entertaining and knowledgeable and I truly enjoyed the day spend learning about Lima and Peru from them both. I had already visited the most recommended sites and museums and my new 'Friends' had constructed a personal itinerary that I would never have experienced on my own! We visited a thriving, vibrant local market... More

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
