What people are saying about Lima Province. Peru

The tour with Will and José was great. We were picked up directly at the hotel and had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the life of the people in Lima. The three markets really impressed us. The dishes were tasty and local. Throughout the tour we were driven from market to market by car. A great experience that we can 100% recommend.

Our guide Oswaldo was great! Only thing that we were sad about was that we didn’t get to go into the archaeological site in Miraflores (which appears to be doable). Our tour ended up taking about 5 hours.

Milagros es una excelente profesional y guía turística. Ella supo brindarme toda la información y ayudarme durante el paseo a las Aguas Mágicas. Viaje solo a Perú y este tour es 100% recomendado.

Highly recommended! Each water fountain has its charm and the show is very nice. The show in DPaso very complete and professional.

Funny, varied, interesting and entertaining tour. We recommend.
