My friend and I had 1 day in Lima and this private full-day tour helped us see the city highlights that we wanted to see without feeling rushed. 10am was the latest avalible start time on the website but I emailed the company beforehand and we were allowed to start at 10:30a. Our English speaking guide Nataly was on time for pickup, made us feel very welcomed to the city, and she was very knowledgeable about Lima and its rich culture. Keep in mind that you can request to visit locations not listed on their preset itinerary and they will help you plan out the schedule ahead of time. Lunch at Larco museum was delicious and the catacombs is a must see! We even made an unexpected stop at an oceanside location to see a cliff diver! I highly recommend this tour and guide Nataly.

Our day led by Gabriella was well worth the extra expense of a private rather than group tour. Her enthusiasm and knowledge about the Lima's history, neighborhoods and cultural buildings made for a great orientation to the city. The itinerary was well organized given the volume of vehicle traffic, we also had ample time at each site, and never felt rushed. It's an excellent tour whether you have just a single day in Lima, or if you have more time later on to explore on your own. Thanks again!

My wife and I only had 1 day in Lima and we were extremely happy with this tour. Maricarmen ( Marie) our tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional and our driver Koki was excellent also. We visited all the top attractions in the city and ended the day with a tour of the coast. Lima is an amazing city and our tour team enhanced our experience. We would highly recommend using them.

The tour was absolutely wonderful. The guide and driver were both fantastic. (I'm horrible at names and even though I asked several times I can't remember. )
They customized the tour for us. I asked about going to the beach and they made a special stop so I could go to the water. We walked through a fish market and saw the biggest pelican we have ever seen.
You could tell our guide loved her job and the city. She told us lots history of the area and different things about the culture of Lima. The church and catacombs were definitely worth seeing. And the museum was amazing. Loved that it was in chronological order. And the resturaunt at museum was fabulous. Loved that reservation for lunch was already made.
Driver was wonderful. He told us lots about tge different areas of city as we drive through them.
If you want a comprehensive tour of Lima, this is it. You will learn about the city.

While the sightseeing part of our tour can be considered very good as we got to see the major attractions in Lima, but our belongings got stolen from our locked luggage left us a very bad taste about Lima.
The four of us disembarked our 18 days Miami to Lima Oceania cruise on the morning of Jan 16 and our flight back home was 1:00 am in the morning of Jan 17. We therefore brought our luggage with us while doing the tour. When we booked the tour, we were assured by Viator that our luggage would be safe with the driver in the vehicle while touring.
Upon return home, we were shock that two of us found about 20% of our personal belongings being stolen from our check-in luggage. As there is no apparent evidence showing the lock have been tamper with, the thief must have a master key like the customs people have to open my combination-lock suitcase.
The only two places that the stealing could have happened are (1) when the luggage were in the vehicle while we were sightseeing on foot leaving the luggage with the driver of the tour and (2) when our luggage were checked in with American Airlines in the Lima Airport. Though we likely will never find out where exactly the stealing occurred.
This incident changed our otherwise a good visit of Lima to a very bad experience in Lima.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review here on Trip Advisor, it truly is a very unfortunate situation that you have encountered. We would like to assure you that we have thoroughly investigated this incident on our end and have found that our driver, who quite frequently transports clients with luggage, could not duly be accused of such a crime. We hire only drivers who have a long standing positive reputation in the tourism industry. This particular driver has never been accused of such things in his service to thousand of satisfied clients and we have no reason to believe that he altered his behavior during your trip. As we mentioned via email, the items missing from your luggage were many and not the typical items one might find normally reported missing with a driver-related theft. Slippers, inexpensive chocolates and quite a bit of women's clothing are more likely items lost due to the mishandling of your checked luggage by the airlines. We stand firm, as over 100+ Trip Advisor reviews have attested to, in our reputation to Integrity. Again, we are sorry that you have had to experience such an event but we wish you would have focused more on the tour experience in your review versus unfounded accusations. Best of luck to you and your traveling party, may we all learn from this.

The first part of the city tour was excellent and very interesting. Especially the SAN Francisco monastery and catacombs. Could not fault the guide. Lunch was at the Museum and was very nice. The afternoon was not so good as too much time was spent in the Larco Museum and there is only so much history you can take in on a one day tour.

It's so great that you enjoyed your time in the Catacombs with Marco, he is, in fact, a great tour guide! We are really surprised to hear that the time in Larco Museum was too much. I know it's kind of late now but to those reading this note, when you book a tour with us since it's private, you do have the flexibility to let your guide know when you've had enough of a place to move on to something more interesting to you. We are sorry we couldn't make the other half of your day as spectacular. We want to thank you for taking the time to review our services and staff. Kindest Regards

My family of 5 (aged young adults to middle age adults) returned today from our trip to Peru. From initial booking to being dropped off at the airport, our day in Lima couldn't have been better. Our final day was spent with Integrity tour guide Gerardo and our driver, Jorge. Gerardo, who speaks excellent English, was a wealth of information and spent time explaining history as well as current culture and events. He was flexible with our itinerary when we decided to grab dinner before heading to the airport but wanted to go to a restaurant a bit out of the way. Jorge was an excellent, professional driver and both gentlemen went out of their way to look out for our comfort and safety. I recommend this company wholeheartedly and without reservation. Excellent day all around!

Our guide Maricarmen and driver Hector were very welcoming, courteous and ensured we had a pleasant day. This is the best way to see the city - you are able to see all of the major sites while being relaxed and not having the stresses of trying to navigate the city yourself. Maricarmen and Hector had a good sense of time and pace and were able to get us to all of the advertised locations. With that said, the only suggestion for improvement is to allocate less time for lunch and more time to explore the Larco Museum. Another minor comment is that, as we passed other tour groups, it seemed that other guides were providing more in-depth commentary of the locations.

What a amazing tour. So glad we booked this tour. You see everything you can imagine in Peru. Cathedral, San Francisco monastery, Larco museum, pyramid in Lima, Christ on hill and shantys, Baronco art district, Love Park, cliff on shore, There is too much to list. Our guide was Nataley and she was brilliant. We were amazed at her knowledge. This is an active tour. Our driver Cokey was a great driver and was always close by while we were away from van. You spend a day a day with a local and get so much insight. They can answer any questions. They were prompt on hotel pickup. We were on a tour, but came early to see Lima. We saw so much more on this private tour than we would have with our group.
