I contacted Gringo Taxis after reading a good online magazine review. Walter replied immediately and within minutes had sorted out our groups transfers from the airport to a Miraflores hotel and back. On arrival Walter was waiting for us in airport arrivals to make sure we found our way to the taxi ok. Couldn't ask for a better service.

Thanks for your valuable assessment of us!

We want clients to feel at home with us. We have worked hard to find a location at the airport for (either international or domestic) clients to find us. It's not a large airport right now so we can generally find each other in minutes after our clients clear customs or grab their bags.

Once we find each other the process is pretty simple and we're on our way. The only real delay is the system used here for the parking payment, unfortunately I don't see any advancement in this area coming.

We hope you come back! There's so much to see and do here.

We had only a brief visit to Lima as a stop-over before our trip to Cusco, The Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Walter was our introduction to Lima and Peru. As an American ex-pat, you'll be very comfortable with Walter who has lived in Lima for the last 4 years and is married to a Peruvian. He was at the airport waiting for us at our late hour of arrival from Atlanta, and came to pick us up at our Airbnb three days later, at a very early hour so that we would not miss our flight to Cusco. He shared stories and background about living in Peru. He is very likable and you won't regret engaging Gringo Taxi!

We used Gringo Taxi on a trip to Lima and they were fantastic. Tomás picked us up at the airport and Walter took us to the airport. They were both on-time, professional, enjoyable to chat with and gave us great advice about Lima and Peru. They are easy to reach through WhatsApp. The prices are reasonable as well. Using public transportation in a new city is a great way to get to know the city and have an adventure, but the trip from airport to hotel or Airbnb etc and especially the return to the needs to be as routine as reasonably possible and that absolutely happened for us with Gringo Taxi. I give these guys a big thumbs up and recommendation!Thanks Walter and Tomás!

WOW! Thanks so much. I really have no words I feel appropriate to say thanks in a meaningful way.

Its honest people like yourself who make me have a bit more faith with this page.

We hope you decide to come back, and when you do we'll be here for you again.

I highly recommend Gringo Taxi. From my very first contact a week prior to travel, communication was immediate, professional and courteous. But, when our flight delay from Miami changed our arrival into Lima from 8:20pm to 12:47am, I was worried I would not have a driver.
I couldn't have been more wrong. At 1:30am, when I had cleared customs and had my luggage Walter Clark was standing there with a sign waiting for me.
What a relief!
He proceeded to take our luggage, got us into his vehicle and provide a friendly informative drive to the hotel.
I couldn't be more satisfied!

Thank you so much!

We work hard to meet the needs of our clients and not just their wants. The fact your flight was running does or shouldn't mean your trip should not go on as seamless as we can make it for you.

Great communication is the key to us being able to make things happen for you. With all the right details we can often times make these kinds of adjustments.

I hope you enjoyed your stay, Thanls again for the kind words.

Walter

We just had a great experience with this taxi service. It is very comforting to have an American-born person running this fleet of taxis. For us, safety is most important and this company will definitely make you feel safe. Our flight into Lima came in very late (midnight) so the last thing we wanted, was any hassle finding our transport to Miraflores. Fortunately for us, our driver was waiting right outside of immigration so we didn't have to wait one second before being whisked away into his taxi. Also, having constant contact via WhatsApp instilled alot of confidence. We also used this service from our hotel back to the airport and again had a wonderful experience (and conversation)!

Look no further than Gringo Taxis for a safe, prompt, affordable, and pleasurable experience!

We find being in contact with our clients is better than the non human kind that's offered today. If something goes sideways on a client or they are bumped for their flight it always helps to be able to communicate with the place that's picking you up.

Im so happy the hear you enjoyed our service. We hope to see you again soon.
