          Wonderful experience. Well spoken and informed, Jocelyn, expertly guided us to and around the city center with many stops to discuss the historical and cultural details of the city. Hard to cover it all but received a good overview of Lima.

          Over priced for the experience
          This was an Overpriced experience. The coordinator didn't let me know my hotel wasn't "in the puck up route" until the day prior. I booked this trip 2 weeks in advance. Then tried charging me $60 for transportation. I asked him to waive the fee, he said no. Fine, the food was a buffet and some of it was delicious, however, for the Price, not that delicious. The show was 27 minutes and NOT WORTH THE PRICE.

          Swimming with Sea Lions
          We had an excellent tour going from Callao port via yacht to Palomino Island. There were hundreds of sea lions! Many were in the water with us. They were fun and entertaining. There are only four tour companies that are allowed to do this through Peru’s national park service. The crew is the boat was attentive and knowledgeable. On the return trip we even saw Humboldt penguins! Our only advice would be to bring your own snacks and water. Even though they say on Trip Advisor that this is provided, it is not. Other tour people were nice to share with us though. We were the only two people who joined the tour off of a cruise ship but they got us back in plenty of time.

          100% honest
          The experience around the sea lions was cool, scary but cool. The guide was really nice. The excursion needs some upgrades for the price paid. I recommend a fluent guide, someone that can really explain what people are seeing. I only recall receiving info on the way to Palomino about the surrounding islands but no info was given on the way back to the dock. We fell asleep at that point. No snacks were given although it was supposed to be included. Refreshments and snacks should be mandatory since it's a long ride plus swimming makes you tired/hungry. If not, it needs to be removed off the description and customers should be advised to bring their own. Overall, it was cool but Idk if I would do it again with this company unless they made changes. I own successful American businesses, so please use this info to get better! This could be a great excursion but there are needed changes! Also, you should mention that towels should be brought. The customer wouldn't know if you didn't tell them but I did appreciate the blanket by the guide. He was really sweet. He swims very very well also, so I felt very safe

          Terrible Experience!
          Transportation was provided by TripAdvisor, yet the driver didn't know where to drop us off. While stopping to ask for directions multiple times, we missed the boat and got placed with another provider. The "yacht" had mechanical problems keeping us in the marina for an hour. We finally got going yet limped out to Palomino Island (on the way back, we were going so slowly, we couldn't out run the smoke coming from engine). The boat had no towels (the ad did not say anything about bringing towels to swim with sea dogs!), the water was quite cold, and it was only about 20°C with a breeze. We are looking for a refund. We were charged over $500US and this was NOT a good experience!!!!!!!

          Not good
          This was a bad experience. The taxi they sent got lost, we missed the boat and they put us on another boat that broke down and the engine was smoking. It was not at all the experience we paid for.

          Perfect tour of neighbourhoods
          This tour was exactly what we wanted. We saw three neighbourhoods and Jocelyn was perfect -in her English and her knowledge and accommodating at the pace that we liked. It truly was a perfect private tour and much better than we ever expected! She was a delight!

          Great birding guide, a real treat!
          Jorge was a great guide. Kind and well-educated. Very knowledgeable about birds. Could ID by audio on most occasions. Added 19 new species to my life list today! About 58 in total for the day, wonderful! Jorge was also very engaged with the public, who may or may not be as invested in protecting the natural area. But you can see how his passion enables him to inform people and enlist them into the values of conservation. The boat tour as well was a special way to experience the humedal (brackish swamp). It would not have been possible to enter this park during birding hours without his bona fide guide credentials. Some favorites: the many-colored rush tyrant, Peruvian pipit, Peruvian meadowlark, burrowing owls, Peruvian thick-knee, Chilean Flamingo, and Great Grebe!

          Amazing experience
          This is one of the coolest interactions with nature you'll ever have. The sea lions were amazing and so curious. The crew was great, boat was clean and nice. I highly recommend.

          Ocean, boat ride, nature, and animals
          Seeing Peru from the viewpoint of the ocean is beautiful, the boat ride is both relaxing and adventurous, and swimming with the sea lions is nothing less than special and a unique experience.

          Perfect private walking tour of the historic centre of Lima
          Our tour guide (Yosselyn) was amazing. She was so knowledgeable and was able to customise our tour according to our interests because we booked a private tour. We learned so much and saw everything we wanted to see. Would definitely recommend !

          Amazing Tour
          Amazing experience. The boat ride was fun and we saw a ton of wildlife. Spotted 2 whales 🐳 coming up for air. The sea lions were spectacular and there were so many. Even though the water was freezing cold 🥶 I would totally do this tour again. We got so close to the rock and saw sea lions swimming in the water with us.🦭

          Walking tour of Lima
          We had a large group (12). Viator recommended a private car for 130USD. We declined and opted for public transportation as the tour was advertised. Jocelyn met us at our hotel in Miraflores and took us on a bus to Barranco, then on another bus to the city center. We saw the main squares, cathedrals, the presidential palace, and walked down Jiron de la Union (a pedestrian shopping street). She offered good information about the sites, some history, and a glimpse of the contemporary Peruvian political environment. I thought we would be finished in the city center, but she accompanied us back to Miraflores on another bus. I’m not sure how the private car would have been incorporated into a walking tour, but we were pleased with our decision.

          Book your adventure confidently!
          The hotel pickup helped me meet other people in smaller groups so I wasn’t anxious when we met up with the larger group. Once we got underway, it was a myriad of sights, sounds, and even smells. I don’t know that my trip would have been complete without this excursion and the company putting it together was awesome! Book confidently!

          Swimming with sea lions and penguins!
          Excellent trip, highly recommend! We had a spare day in Lima so booked this trip at the last minute. They picked us up from our hotel which was helpful as not a lot of the other similar swim with sea lion trips offered this. Our guide Diego was very knowledgeable and made our trip enjoyable. They provided us with a wet suit, life vest and snacks on the boat. Highlight was swimming with the sea lions and seeing Humboldt penguins.

        El tour fue completo, nos asistieron a comprar los boletos de ingreso a los centros arqueológicos, eramos un grupo de 10 en total , pero el guia nos explico muy bien la cronología inca y su influencia en el Cusco. Muy recomendable.
