We booked a day through Peruvian Local Friend. Our guide Evelyn was terrific. We visited Moray, Maras, Mismanay, Chincheros and other places in between. She was informative, entertaining and very attentive to our needs. The day with her was so pleasant and easy going, that we felt comfortable and had an active but yet relaxing day. Definitely spend the day... More

I was so happy I found Peruvian Local Friend on trip advisor. And thanks to all the reviews I was able to decide to take this tour. Our guide Cindy was fabulous and warm and sweet personable and super professional. It really felt she cared and went really out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and we... More

We highly recommend our tour of Lima with Eliana and Peruvian Local. Due to flight complications, our trip was shortened somewhat, but we did not suffer for it. Eliana is such an intelligent, informative, articulate, and charming tour guide who provided the icing on the cake to a wonderful Peruvian venture that ended in Lima. She and her driver, who...

I hired Peruvian Local Friend for various airport transfers as well as two days of tours in Lima and a full day tour in Cusco. First of all their transportation is top notch, their drivers are courteous and punctual. The guides, Cindy in Lima and Evelyn in Cusco were very informative and kind. Van was spotless and was being cleaned... More

This is a great service. Our "friend" Cindy met us at our apartment, took us into the city via public transportation and gave us an insider's view of her city. We learned more about the city than we would have discovered on our own. We moved at our own pace and visited the sights we wanted to see. Highly recommend!

We came across Peruvian Local Friend on tripadvisor and I suppose we were still a little apprehensive in spite of all the positive reviews on here, but after a wonderful 3 hours visiting Central Lima with Eliana, we couldn't recommend both the company and Eliana enough. Eliana was early and waiting for us when we arrived and began giving a... More

We are a family of four adults and booked a six hour private walking tour to see Lima. Our guide, Rodrigo was an excellent resource and showed us the highlights of this interesting city. You can't see everything in 1-day, but we certainly saw a lot , getting around using the bus, taxi, and our feet. Rodrigo was flexible and... More

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Found "My Peruvian Local Friend" on the web. All the reviews there were "glowing". This review will be glowing as well. Our goal was to see the sights and not have to deal with transportation and directions. We don't speak Spanish. Planned our own trip: Impressive lobby of the Gran Hotel Bolivar, Basílica de Nuestra Senora de la... More

We booked Peruvian Local Friend when we were back in the UK. It was all seamless and communications with them was excellent. We opted having a car as it was our first day in Lima after a long 24 hours travelling from home. Our driver and our guide, Cindy, arrived at our B&B spot on time. We saw all the... More

I was nervous about visiting Lima for the first time and decided I wanted to hire a guide. I checked into a different tour company that was recommended by a friend but the company took several days to respond and it was clear from their response that they were not proficient in English. That is when I searched TripAdvisor for... More
