I met Monica three and a half years ago and, since then, she has become so much more than a tour guide, but also a friend! Monica is extremely knowledgeable about Lima and destinations throughout Peru. She booked a trip for my sister and me to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and it was, hands down, my favorite...

Monica gave me an excellent day tour of Lima replete with surprises, like a holy procession by the cathedral and breathtaking views from a church tower. She was both delightful and full of good information about the city she knows so well.

We used Monica Tours for our trip to Peru. Monica met us on arrival at Lima airport personally and transferred us to our hotel. The next day she and our tour guide did an extensive day tour of Lima. Monica outlined the remainder of our arrangements and we headed out the next day for what was to be a wonderful... More

I had a Lima airport stopover of several hours on a flight from Cusco to Iquitos and contacted Monica tours to meet me at the airport and take me on a tour of Lima. It was an excellent way to see the highlights of the city in the time I had available (and far superior to sitting in the airport... More

We had a private visit most of the day on our first day in Lima. This gave us a very good taste of the city, its attraction, its beauties and our guide was excellent. It was a good mix of walking, small bus sight seeing, museum visit, and historical explanation. I really enjoyed having someone to pick me up at... More

We used Monica Tours on 3 occasions while on a cruise ship visiting Trujillo, and 2 days in Lima. The guide in Trujillo picked us up on time at the ship, and took us to great places of interest. My husband is in a wheelchair, and he made sure we could see as many highlights as possible. He was well... More

I have visited and toured South America (always including Peru) for a few weeks to a month or more each year for 15 years. Each of those years, Monica Tours has helped me, often accompanied by family and friends, with the travel arrangements, which sometimes were very complex and demanding. Monica and her staff have competently steered me to and... More

Excellent tour guide. Monica went out of her way to introduce us to all the attractions in Lima and the surrounding area. We were a party of four and got the best private tour guide. We could go at our own pace and time. Way better than the larger group tours. Highly recommend Monica Tours, you will not be disappointed

We were in Peru for 6 days as part of our holiday in South America. We stayed in Lima for only 2.5 days so weren't sure we would be able to see or do much. One of my friends managed to book a tour on our first day with a lady called Monica. So glad he did as Monica and... More

It took a long time to get from the Cruise ship into the stop in Lima, but Monica was there waiting patiently for our group of 4 persons. Great description of all places visited, but importantly there was no " rushing around " like most tours. friendly and informal tour I would recommend to everyone visiting Peru. If you join... More
