Between flights, my wife and I had 5 hours in Lima so we decided to take a quick tour with Discovering Peru to know the city while we could. The agency responded all my emails quickly and the payment of the reservation was easy. At the airport they were right on time and had a very comfortable car waiting outside. Liliana, the tour guide and Alex, the driver, were friendly and nice. Alex was quiet. She had her presentation clear and smiled all the time. We stopped at some historical plazas to take pictures and even though I was carrying an expensive camera, somehow I felt safe to use it. There is a fountain at Plaza Mayor which apparently is filled with Pisco once during july to celebrate a national holiday. Got to go! The catacombs at Monastery of San Francisco were interesting too. Miraflores has a nice park called Parque del Amor with beautiful surroundings and gardens, and a shopping center called Larcomar with a spectacular view to the sea.
Unfortunately the ATM machines couldn't read one of our debit cards (the one that had the money of course) so we had some serious trouble since we were short on money, hungry and exhausted. Luckily we found free short internet access at Larcomar and were able to plead for help to our family. I was a bit worried because we were left alone at the mall for one hour, after paying the tour and I was already asking myself if the driver would show up! But he did, drove us back to the airport and even bought us some Olé Olé chocolates at a stopping light. It was a very kind gesture.
We are sorry we couldn't give you any tip Liliana and Alex. This review is the very least we can do. Thanks for your time and words. We had a good time!
