Overview

We run free walking tours from Monday to Saturday in Lima downtown and in barranco, our first tour starts at 11 am from Miraflores and the second at 4 pm from barranco. All our tours cover local and touristic areas, we focus on showing further than the common city tour route normally shows to travellers. Extras. In our tour for barranco we give free samples of chocolate and coffee + a Pisco sour workshop.

I made this free walking tour and wasn't that happy! The guide was pretty annoyed and you could see that he didn't want to do the tour! Also it wasn't that many information he was able to give us.
