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

My wife and I recently contracted with Peruvian Local Friend for a half day walking tour of the Miraflores and Barranco area of Lima. Our guide Rodrigo met us at the Miraflores Marriott at the arranged time and we immediately took off on our adventure to see many of the local sites. We were able to customize our trip to... More

Our tour guide Eliana ('Ellie') was fantastic - we had only a few hours to see Lima and decided to book a tour rather than wander around aimlessly - Ellie had everything co-ordinated with our driver who magically appeared when we were finished wandering around one spot and whisked us off to the next sight. We managed to see so... More

I was assigned to Renzo. He is a young professional who is an educated and degreed tour guide. He was flexible with my schedule and my pace. He adjusted all along the way. This is much better than a large, organized tour in which you have no options except to go along with the schedule. I highly recommend the company... More

I'm 15 years old and I did this tour on my own on the day of my birthday. My mom had organized it for me so I did't stay in the hotel room all day since she was working. My guide, Antonella, was excellent. She knew all about the history of the buildings we visited and also knew a great... More

Eliana was our tour guide today and she was absolutely amazing. We are two females traveling on our way to Cusco and only in town for a couple of days. It was just like we were visiting a friend and were able to learn a lot about local life and see and learn things we wouldn't have on our own.... More

Great tour. Cindy showed me things I would never have known about. There is a pyramid in downtown Lima that she brought me to that was amazing.

Wife and I booked a private full day tour. Tour lasted about 8 hours total and involved walking and driving. They emailed me their proposed itinerary and then we tweaked it to exactly what we wanted to do. The tour guide was excellent and spoke English well. Most importantly we got an excellent overview of the city and got to... More
