Lima: Colonial City Tour with Catacombs Visit
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Skip the line through a separate entrance
This was the first tour we embarked on when visiting Lima this past October 2019. Our transportation arrived right on schedule and our guide, Jordan Mendieta Tiza, was incredible. Jordan was extremely knowledgable on the history and culture of Lima and showed us some amazing locations. Not only this, but Jordan was friends with most everyone at the locations we visited, allowing us to skip some lines for entry to locations such as Cathedrals. He even showed us this local churro location, wherein I ate the best churro I have ever tasted! Our tour was filled with culture and allowed us to learn a lot about the history and culture of Lima, Peru. Beyond our amazing tour and our knowledgable guide, Jordan, our driver, Daniel, was an incredibly safe driver and got us to a variety of locations in a timely manner. I could not have imagined a better introduction to our experience in Lima. Thank you so much to Jordan, and Daniel, for making this possible for us.
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.
Recomendado. Es un tour libre pero el guia lo toma muy enserio como si fuera un servicio con un precio alto; no por tantas comodidades sino por lo curioso y entretenido, lo que resulta muy buena experiencia. No es para tomarlo si el plan es confort porque es caminar. Pero es para obtener un honesto panorama cultural de la ciudad Lima.
Great tour with a very knowlegable and nice local guide. We learned a lot about Lima’s history and highly recommend the tour. It would have been nice to visit one more sight or spend 30 more minutes in the historical center - we spent quite some time in the traffic though as it took longer to reach the city center.
