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

I booked the 5 hour city tour with Eliana during my layover at the Lima airport and I am so happy that I did! Everything was flawless, from email communication beforehand, easy payment, airport pick up/drop off, etc. Eliana was engaging, flexible, and incredibly knowledgeable. I felt like I really saw some significant highlights of Lima without feeling rushed. She... More

My friend and I booked a 3.5 hr tour and I had a wish list of what to see. Rodrigo picked us up at the hotel, looked at my list and the we took public transit (which is more convenient than taxis). We had a wonderful tour filled with Rodrigo's knowkedge of Centro Lima. My regret is that we ran... More

We were a group of 10 people and we did the five hour walking and van tour. It was fabulous. Our guide, Rodrigo, was very knowledgeable, spoke perfect English, and was great fun. He was flexible in allowing us the time we required in the different districts - making some longer and some shorter. I would highly recommend "Peruvian Local... More

On our last day in Peru, we decided to use Peruvian Local Friend. We were picked up at the airport by a friendly driver, Patrick. We drove to the Lima market to meet Eliana, our tour guide for the day. The minute we met Eliana, we knew we will have a blast with the tour. She's very knowledgeable, perceptive and... More

In Lima for a week continuing my Spanish studies. With APEC in town and the school closed, I found myself with a free day. Decided to splurge on myself and take an 8 hour private tour with this company based on the reviews I had read. I wrote and explained what I wanted to see and do. I like to... More

After walking the Inca Trail, we spent three days in Lima. Since none of the 3 of us speaks Spanish, we hired a guide from Peruvian Local Friend. Our guide Cindy was on time, cordial, spoke English well and was more than happy to accommodate our requests on what we wanted to see. The driver for the tour was excellent... More

We arrived in Lima two days prior to joining a US tour group to visit Lima, Cusco, and Machu Picchu. We started with an airport transfer transfer to our hotel. The driver was courteous and gave us great info about Lima during the drive. I did not want to repeat any of the sights in Lima that we were to... More

My friend and I recently were in Lima and had a long layover so we decided to book the 5 hour walking and car tour of Lima. We were very happy with our guide and also all the cool places we saw. We were able to see some great sights and also experience the local culture.

We had a wonderful experience in Lima and Cusco with the help of Peruvian Local Friend. Our Lima tour was completely customized to our needs and was very well organized. The tour guide was knowledgeable, and just like the company's name says, like our friend. All the transfers between the airports and hotels were on time and with courteous and... More
