“Monica Tours Peru - Nazca Lines and Ballestas Islands One Day Tour”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Monica provided a full service and treated me like a long lost member of her family not just a customer. She provided support throughout the day when things did not go to plan, and despite starting at a ridiculous hour and transferring me to my hotel close to midnight she maintained her professionalism and happy disposition. She made my trip an excellent experience. Monica always responded quickly despite the time differences between Peru and Australia. Thank you Monica

“Great tour of Lima with Monica”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

My husband and I took the day tour from Callao to Lima to see the main city sights and the Incan ruins of Pachacamac and we really enjoyed it. Being with such a small group in a minibus was a better option for us than being with a large group, and our guide was great. Highly recommended.

“Knowledgeable, reliable & friendly”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Right from our initial e-mail inquiry, Monica provided prompt service with detailed tour information. We did a full day tour & besides seeing all the key sights in Lima, we also drove outside the city to do the tour to the Peruvian Paso Horse Ranch, which included lunch & was the highlight of the day. Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. She was totally flexible, allowing us to stay at each sight for as long as we wanted. We would not hesitate to use Monica Tours again & would highly recommend using them when visiting Lima.

“Felt like a local, guided by a local!”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

we were a group of 6 people - most in their mid 40, mid 60- and we hired Monica's services for airport pickup, airport dropoff and a city tour. Eventhough we had family in Lima, her services and those of the guides were really good and acertive. We felt as if Monica was part of our extended family as well. All the pickups were on time, with very good buses and following a very customized tour without charging as one. Monica even went out of her way to come with us to a church in downtown lima that we wanted to visit after the tour. She gladly took us over there and dropped home later without charging extra or even mentioning a tip. Of course such attitudes do deserve one. I really recommend her services even if you have contacts or relatives in Lima.

“Monica's tours”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Our cruise ship was late getting into Lima due to a heavy fog. Other private tours were cancelled but when I searched to port side Monica and our guide we still waiting. Even though we had to cut our tour short due to the weather we got in and out of places we wanted to see. Our guide was a true pofessional and got us in and out ahead of the large groups. She took us to all the places we could see and the driver was always ready when a pick up was needed. When we go back to Lima and we will I will use Monica's tours. I have already passed their info on to friends who I know are going to Lima
