          Great Full Day Tour of Lima
          Klaudia was an excellent tour guide and Gerardo as great of a driver. Both super friendly and nice. I pretty much got a private tour and got to see so much of the different neighborhoods in Lima (loooved Barranco). Klaudia also had me try fruits I've never seen/tasted before and we also got to have a great lunch. She even helped me exchange usd for sols with local folks. Highly recommend.

          The best of Lima in 2 days .
          Our day 1 guide , RENso is one of the very best guides we have had . He is very articulate and speaks perfect English. The tour under the hot sun to the sanctuary of Pachacamac was quite exhausting but We enjoy his ways of presentation . We also learned the secrets of mysterious catacombs . The light shows at 7.15 pm was a must see . Day 2 tour was an interesting foodie tour .. Ann our guide is sweet and we enjoyed her presentation and also the delicious fruits and Peruvians staple dishes . Chaufa . Peruvian Fried Rice and ceviche .

          Fabulous day!
          We only had one full day in Lima on our way to Chile so we wanted to make best use of that time. Mario, our guide, and Juan, our driver, made the day exactly what we wanted. They picked us up at the JW, we had a great itinerary for the day that allowed us to see many different neighborhoods, areas of Lima as well as the City center and a lovely lunch. Mario was very knowledgeable about Peruvian history, told many stories, and Juan made the day easier by being able to drop us off, walk around, etc. Highly recommend this company if you have limited time in Lima! Great day!

          Wonderful time!!!
          We had a fantastic time. Our guide Pamela shared valuable information about Pachacamac history and culture. She is very knowledgeable. We learned so much. The site museum is beautiful. Fabulous architectural design that blends perfectly with the environment. The food and the Peruvian dances show was great. We loved the Peruvian Paso Horses show. Finally, Esterling our driver is one of the best drivers ever.

          Wonderful company
          I would give 10 stars to this company if I could. We booked a shore excursion in Lima with Mr Grillo and couldn’t have been more pleased. The shuttle arranged by the port was extremely confusing but Peruvian Tours was wonderful! They quickly changed the pick up to accommodate the ship’s drop off. The communication was wonderful. Our guide, Pamela, and driver were the best. Pamela is a professional tour guide whose training and knowledge were wonderful. We spent the day immersed in the highlights of Lima and covered a lot. The day was long but well paced and the fountain show at the end was a memory we will carry for a long time. Don’t hesitate to book with this company, they are tremendous.

          Excellent and informative tour
          Tino was a very knowledgeable tour guide whose English was excellent. We were late arriving at the meeting point, but communication from the office was very good. We visited the two main squares and San Francisco Monastery and their Catacombs. The information provided was interesting and informative, also gave us lots of info on the history of Peru and the local people. Would highly recommend this tour if you want to see and hear about the history of Lima.

          Couldn’t have asked for a better all-encompassing experience
          It’s hard to believe we were able to cover as much as we did in two days! Our guide, Pamela, did a great job of showing and explaining the history and culture.

          What A 2 Days in Lima
          The 2-day Best of Lima excursion is great. The first day, the tour covers all the must go sites. With our guide Pamela’s detail presentations, it satisfied our curiosity about the sites. The second day we tour local market. We got a taste of the local fruits. Wow is the word. We also tasted some local dishes before we go for a Peruvian lunch. Muy bueno

          We Can’t Thank Mario Enough! Wonderful Lima Tour
          My husband and I were blown away by the tour we received! We were very lucky to have been the only people who booked our day so we received a private tour. We were picked up very punctually from our hotel, and our guide Mario came into the Lobby to receive us. The car was very comfortable and the ride was smooth. Mario was incredible - he was extremely personable and knowledgeable and clearly has such wonderful pride in his country. He offered us so much historical background to the sites visited. We drove through the historical district to Plaza San Martín and began walking there. He took us through a gorgeous path through the city and gave us a wealth of knowledge we would have never known otherwise. Mario went into depth on the indigenous history of Peru at Museo Central (Banco Central de Reservation Del Perú), a bank that is converted into a museum. After this stop we walked to San Francisco Church and the catacombs below. We were so impressed by the descriptions of the symbolism present in the architecture and designs. On the way to Plaza Mayor, Mario took us past the Casa de La Literatura Peruana where we also happened to catch the changing of the guards from the Palacio De Gobierno. We even stopped in a chocolate shop where he took us to taste cacao. In Plaza Mayor we finished our tour surrounded also by the Cathedral de Lima and Palacio Municipal de Lima, as well as a parade with a band and dancers. Ultimately, the information we received on our tour enhanced every site we saw. Mario was so fun and professional and his energy and respect for the culture of Peru was contagious. We would recommend this tour to anyone who could take it!

          All the way to Nazca with Marcos
          Marcos was great. All activities organized and executed perfectly. Very friendly personality. Handled himself really professionally. He was very informative and stayed upfront and honest with any situation affecting our itinerary. He took us for some delicious dining with grated views. Thank you Marcos.

          Experience of a lifetime.
          The tour was interesting, eye-opening, informative. A tour that everyone should take when visiting Lima to fully understand the people of Lima and the challenges many of them face. While foodie tours and market tours were also enjoyed by us, this one was the most memorable and impactful. Alfredo was the perfect tour guide and advocate.

          Spectacular experience!
          Our guide and driver, Marcos and Juan, were both lovely; fun and funny. Although the drive to Nazca was long, it was very interesting and often beautiful. The flight over the Nazca lines was stupendous; once in a lifetime! The food at the oasis was delicious and the dune buggy experience was a blast. Sand boarding was also a lot of fun. We begged off the tasting experience because it was such a long trip, but we highly recommend this tour, the guide and the driver. The best!

          The experiences we recieved were great. Didn't get everything we paid for though.
          The experience is definitely one I'd recommend, however there were some definite things we paid for that we did not receive. So maybe verify you are getting everything you are paying for. The experiences we did get to have were soo much fun. The plane ride was super fun. Seeing the geographical lines / designs that were drawn thousands of years ago was incredible. The sand dunes with the sand buggy and sand boarding was exhilarating and beautiful. Those 2 things took a collective 90 minutes out of the 10+ hours of sitting in a car. Not sure what happened to : Alcoholic Beverages - Wine and Pisco Tour Breakfast box / water (we paid for our own snacks and water from a gas station) Lunch was included(sort of). We were given a certain amount of Soles we could spend at lunch, however, most things on the menu were more expensive and again, we had to pay more. Our tour guide was very nice. Our driver got us there and back in 1 piece. Major issues with the missing pieces of the package WE PAID FOR. A refund should be offered or the description should be updated if these things aren't available.
