Had a lengthy layover in Lima and I was so glad that I used this service. Rodrigo was our guide and Alonso our driver. Service was flawless and the contacts at the company are very responsive. Alonso was waiting at the airport for us with a sign and was very easy to locate. The traffic in Lima is quite horrendous... More

We were given an excellent five-hour tour of Lima by our guide Cindy and our driver Alonso that included the the city center, the Anthropological Museum, Milaflores, Barranco and other areas. They were highly knowledgeable and adjusted the tour to our interests. This is the way to learn about Lima.

Under the expert guidance of our PLF guide, Rodrigo, and our very careful driver, Alonso, we spent four days visiting much of what Lima had to offer myself and my wife. It is an extraordinary city and a crossroads of so many influences. The cultural heritage is enormously rich and Rodrigo was able to convey the impact of Lima's change... More

We did a 4 hour tour with Rodrigo as guide and Alonso as driver. What a super wonderful introduction to Peru with Lima our only one day stop.

our guide Rodrigo was friendly and so smart about the country, city, history, customs, neighborhoods. He really made us feel like we had spent the day with a local friend and showed us around like we were family. GREAT TOUR
