i did the tour with Jordan. He is a fantastic guide ( and a good driver as well), speaks very very good english and provide numerous additional information from just the city center landmarks. He gives insight into peruvian history, current society, food, beverages.. you name it. he is super friendly and careful to each detail and paces the tour so that you can absorb the information. you can ask him anything on any topic- he’ll have the answer.

They were pretty much on time to pick us up from our airBNB in San Isidro. the guide Jonothan was very nice. we stopped by some ruins around San Isidro, but only stayed outside of them. we then went through o town. The guide pointed out some sites along the way. We then went to a banking museum which was nice. We then proceeded to see a few sights as we were walking including the main square. We then went to a cathedral and toured the catacombs. They then dropped us back off at our place and did offer to drop us off elsewhere if we like. The car, guide and driver were all nice and the things we saw were fine. We finished in about 3 house. Not sure it was really worth the cost for us. I expected a bit more. I guess given it was a private tour it was fine, and I have no complaints.

Jordan, ably assisted by driver Alviar, was a professional and very knowledgeable guide who passed on a wealth of information about historic central Lima. Jordan’s English skills were excellent and he was easily understood and took the time to ensure all group members had absorbed relevant information. A beautiful and historic central area tour with a great guide. Highly recommended.
