The whole was marvellous. Loved the special little touches, chiros and extra facts in the morning, the ceviche at the markets for lunch was to die for. Highly recommend this tour. We did morning and afternoon tours in one day.

A fantastic day with guides who care about our interests. Clear explanations, links between the present and the past and concern for the community in a city of 12 million inhabitants. I highly recommend this tour :)
