Julio was extremely knowledgeable and genuinely interested in sharing the history of Lima and its architecture with us. The catacombs were very interesting also. Afterwards he gave us recommendations for local restaurants and even took us to one! As we’ve been traveling around, we have done many tours, but this was the best so far in our South American trip. Also, the mini van was impecable clean and comfortable. Would highly recommend.

Guide Junior picked us up from hotel in a van with driver. Was punctual and polite. drove to old city of Lima and dropped us close to Plaza de Armas. Then we continued on foot for a couple hours through streets of old city. Junior was very knowledgeable and offered detailed explanations and descriptions. Highlight was a visit to the Cathedral of San Francisco de Assisi and the catacombs. Invited us to street foods at two locations then we met our driver who transported us back to Miraflores.Junior also recommended place for Dinner which as excellent.

One of the best organized tours I've been on so far. From the communication to the organization and the friendliness of the employees, everything went perfectly! The tour itself was quite interesting, even if Lima is not particularly exciting now. Our guide (Amadeo) was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and managed to make the bilingual tour easy to understand. We have also had tours in Peru, where there were problems as a result. You also get a fantastic churro to try! All in all a really great afternoon.
