Want something truly off the beaten path? Want to get to know Lima beyond the touristic areas? Then the Local Communities or Authentic Lima tour is perfect for you! But don't take it from us, read what our visitors had to say about this tour: "This was such an excellent tour and none like any other I've been on before. It was truly a moving experience" "Tour focuses on positive side of community life. We really enjoyed being able to meet and talk to local people, learn their stories and struggle for better life. It is safe and a very well organized tour" "What a unique experience that we certainly wouldn't have gotten during a standard tourist tour. I have to say that we were extremely touched by the warmth, kindness and friendliness of everyone we met" On this Lima tour, you'll visit one of Lima's human settlements with a local guide, the very unique and second largest cemetery in the world, an NGO who does excellent work to improve conditions in some of Lima's poorest neighborhoods and an entrepreneurial local lady who has started her own fair trade business in her own house. You'll also have lunch at a local family's house where we'll share some stories with our hosts. You'll learn and witness daily life in this harsh environment but especially how warm, optimistic and hard-working these people are. Alternative Peru has several other day-tours, that range from very alternative to less alternative, combining some traditional sights with hidden gems as well as several multi-day tours. Check our website for full descriptions of the tours.
