Had an amazing day touring Lima with Dan while learning about photography. The most unique aspect of the experience was Dan’s ability to convey a side of the city much more complex than meets the eye. Lima is layered and full of stories of course. But the tour granted me a glimpse into the human condition behind all that history, and it made the place feel accessible and relatable. Dan’s authentic love for the city and its people is very obvious. There was a great amount of respect he paid everyone we encountered - from waiters, to fishermen, to street vendors, and even those asking for money. I signed up for a photography workshop and a bit of sightseeing. Instead I received a lesson in how to connect with perfect strangers on a human level, and capture a bit of their spirit in images in the process. Highly recommend this tour and Dan’s services.

Dan was an excellent and knowledgeable guide and our day included many diverse parts of the city and some useful photography tips. I dont think we could have fit any more adventure into 7 hours. The Chorillo fish market and pier was a definite highlight.

I engaged Dan to take me places in Lima I might not otherwise find on my own. He planned a private tour for me that was exactly what I had in mind. It was excellent in every way.

Dan is delightful, affable, knowledgeable and accommodating. He’s an educated and capable photographer in his own right. He offered photography-related suggestions and help but let me do my own thing without being imposing. His English is perfect; his manners impeccable.

Dan provided a clean and comfortable car and a driver who navigated efficiently and drove safely.

All in all, a delightful day. I hope to return to Peru and when I do, I will contact Dan again. I look forward to it and can recommend Dan and his company without reservation.

PS I got some good pictures!

We had a great day touring Lima with Dan! Groups are always kept small, but we (my husband and I) ended up with just one other person, which made for a very personal experience where you have opportunities to really get to know each other. The tour was amazing, we loved the opportunity to see the less touristy side of Lima and see what life is like for the locals. The places we were taken were all very picturesque and beautiful, and Dan had some really good tips for certain photos to take. If you have a day to spare in Lima, I highly recommend this tour!!

We were lucky to have our tour of Lima with the wonderful Dan, felt very comfortable upon meeting him and our little group made our way to see the 'precious gems' in the city, absolutely breathtaking! Dan was very insightful and patient with our questions, we had a good time I'd recommend to anyone who is unsure about how to approach seeing most the city in a day!

My mother and I had a private day tour of Lima and it was wonderful from beginning to end. I am a photographer from the States, and Dan offered me a peek into the daily lives of locals at the market, in the streets, with the local fishermen, and above the city. I welcomed his expert advice on camera settings and points of view. My mother, who is not a photographer, also loved camera hints to produce fantastic photos with her iPhone. Lunch in China Town with the refreshing Inca Kola is not to be missed. Muchas gracias Dan! Can't wait for another adventure. If you spend any time in Lima (or other Peruvian locales), find out what adventures are in store for you with Andean Photo Expeditions. Que Bueno!

I made a last-minute decision to book this tour and it definitely over-exceeded my expectations. I just finished a 4-day trek to Machu Picchu so I was kind of expecting the same formal tour, but this was so much more. Dan was amazing to have as a guide.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone interested in photography. I definitely felt a bit intimidated taking photos of strangers at first, but Dan sort of gave me the confidence—you're basically taking photos of all his friends as he's already built relationships with most locals along the way.

I really felt got a "locals perspective" on the tour that I don't think I'd get elsewhere. Part of the tour involved going into local markets, small and large. I always felt safe, camera in hand—It's great having a local that would advise when to keep things a bit more secure just as a precaution. Part of the tour involves zig-zagging through markets that only locals would know, so I really appreciated that.

Since this tour was focused on getting great shots Dan was always patient while I attempted to switch a lens or waited for something to happen to get that specific shot (it actually felt encouraged). Dan was also willing to share techniques, tips and advice for taking better photos.

I thought I had checked Peru off my list after Machu Picchu, but I definitely thinking twice about returning to do another tour with Andean!
