Walter provided round trip transportation for me from the airport in Lima to my hotel in the centre of town during my 15 hour layover on my way to Cusco. From the reservation through to pick up and drop off, Walter provided excellent communication and impeccable service. When I breezed through immigration and security in record time, far in advance of our expected pick up time, he pivoted quickly and had another driver with me very quickly. He is personable and friendly, and I highly recommend that you book him for your transport needs while you’re in Lima!

Walter was extremely accommodating and I felt very safe, which I so greatly appreciated as an often nervous female travelling alone (and I know little Spanish). I felt comfortable, and could always ask questions and make requests and he was flexible and responsive for multiple pickups. Walter was very kind and honest man who I felt I could trust, and Tomas literally saved the day helping me at the clinic to get my covid test done. I would call gringo taxis anytime I'm in Lima, and recommend them to anyone. Thank you!

We used Walter and Gringo Taxi for several trips during my two week stay in Lima. Very professional, friendly and punctual. He assisted with airport transport and even drove us around central Lima and up to San Cristobal for a few hours. I highly recommend Gringo Taxi for a reliable, safe, English or Spanish speaking (if needed) airport pickup, taxi and transport service in Lima.

My apologies for the delay getting back to you. Peru has gone into a shutdown for 15 days over this Coronavirus and we've been working out our response. We really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to mention us here on this platform. We hope to see you again once this situation passes

Walter is the best! Reliable, good pricing and safe taxi service in Lima and Cusco area. When I messed up my booking time, Walter made it so easy for me to change the dates and times of pickup. He was there, great to speak to and helpful during my solo travels. As a female solo traveler it's always reassuring to know reliable services. Book your next airport ride with Gringo Taxis and you'll be very happy with the service provided.

Excellent service by Walter. On time and really reliable and gave loads of helpful information. We were a bit nervous about going to the airport alone for the first time and Walter made us super easy, secure and we felt safe the whole time. Driving in Lima can be a bit crazy and taxis can be a bit hit and miss, so it’s great to know that there is a totally reliable and trusted service! Thanks so much!

Thanks so much for taking time to leave a review! Peru is a different beast when it comes to reliable, punctual and trustworthy taixs. especially airport and hotel taxis. We work hard here at Gringo Taxis to bring a bit of the North American thinking to your pickup. Simple thing's like be reliable and actually showing up when we say we will. Thanks again

Walter and his team were amazing. Always punctual, very very reliable!! Walter is so communicative and his team of drivers were so friendly. We used Gringo for all of our airport transfers and it was so nice knowing that we had a ride waiting for us. Thank you thank you Gringo Taxi for taking a huge burden off our shoulders!!

Gringotaxi helped us feel very safe and secure traveling to and from the Lima airport. After arriving late at night in Lima it gave us great peace of mind to know we had a safe ride ready and waiting outside for us. The owner/driver Walter was very friendly and gave us lots of helpful recommendations and advice for traveling through Peru. Would highly recommend this to anyone!

WOW, I'm really nearly speechless. I'm happy we were able to meet your needs arriving late night. While it may be uncomfortable for you to arrive that late, that's the time most international flights arrive (after 9pm and before 6am). And we're familiar with the situation. Thanks again and we hope to see you back in Perú soon

I've taken several trips with Gringo Taxi and they've been great every time. Timely, professional, friendly, and reliable. Including one trip from a distant beach at a very early hour, where I was nervous about finding someone that would be sure to show up on time, so that my visiting parents would catch their flight. The taxi came right on time and delivered them early to the airport. Many thanks! Highly recommended.

We work hard at being on time, even at long distance. We have let more than one driver go due to them not being reliable and punctual. Our goal is to bring a little bit of North America to Peru, including things like Integrity, Punctuality and Reliability. Thanks for taking time to mention us, we really appreciate it

Walter's Gringo taxi service is amazing. He is willing to come to the airport at your convenience. I was scheduled to arrive in Lima at 1:15 am and got in at 4:15 am. My son who lives in Lima notified him of the delay and Walter was there at the airport waiting. What a trooper! When I left Walter had to pick me up at 5:30 am and again he was punctual and I wasn't! He is always available for his clients and will go the extra mile.

Yes! Thanks for noticing we go the extra mile. Unfortunately so many tourists travel to Perú thinking everything will be as it is back home. But reliability, punctuality and trustworthy airport taxis are hard to find in Perú. That's why we have selected the few driver's we have both in Lima and in Cusco. The last thing we want to do is ruin your trip from the start of it. Thanks again for your time
