We got a bad initial impression due to late pick-up from the airport. Next day we met Cindy who tried her best to show Lima in 5 hours. She is very knowledgeable and accommodating.

Had a great time with a tour guide named Antonella, that picked me up from my hotel in Miraflores, toured that district, along with Barranco, and the plaza de armas to watch the changing of the guard, and other sights including the Monastery of San Francisco ( I got lucky, wanted to see it, and she interned there for her...

I did the half day Lima city tour with Eliana. It was a lot of fun and a great experience! Eliana is extremely knowledgeable on the history and culture of the city. She was very accommodating and a fantastic guide! Thanks Eliana and Peruvian Local Friend!

We arrived in Lima on Christmas day and Eliana gave us a terrific orientation of Lima with a lot of history and background. We were able to tour the downtown area including the Aliaga House, the main cathedral, the walking/shopping malls, a market, an Inca site and we were dropped off at the Larco Museum which we toured on our...

We were in Lima for a few days to attend a wedding after traveling to Cuzco/Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu. We wanted to see the "highlights" of Lima and booked a half day tour. Our tour guide was Cindy. She met us at our hotel lobby and whisked us off! We had a very informative tour with her, combination of car and... More

We had a great day with our friend Cindy. She was happy to tailor our day to our interests and showed us parts of the city we would otherwise not find. Her English was fantastic, was happy to write down Spanish words of interest for us and Nothing was a bother, even helped us haggle in central market. We had... More

What a relief when you come through customs and don't have to search out your transfer driver! We used our Peruvian Local Friend for transfers to and from our hotel in Miraflores and they were fabulous. There on time, and you never had to search them out or call to see where they were! Car was comfortable and the driver... More

I was accompanied by Peruvian Local Friend during my first day in Lima, out of my two awesome weeks in the exotic Peru. I like how Peruvian local Friend helped me on giving advices on place to go, logistics and explaining the history. As an Indonesian, I was more familiar with Maccu Pichu. I am glad they advised me to... More

My wife and I just returned from a 12 day trip to Peru. We visited Lima, Cuzco and Machu Picchu. If I could give Peruvian Local Friend a 6 rating I would! They were the glue that held our trip together. We contracted with them for almost $1000 in services and they performed them to perfection. We decided to book... More
