Waited at the meeting point in Barranco for 40 min and no guide showed up. Luckily we found another tour with another company that guided us through Barranco and Chorillo which was great!

Though our guide was very nice, we found the tour a bit poor in content, provided Lima city centre must be full of history. At the end they provide free samples of Pisco. In favour, they also pick up people from Barrancos & Miraflores, which...More

I was in Lima just for two days and without doubt this was the best way to explore the city! We also learned a little bit of the history, culture, food, where to party, etc...I'm so glad my friend and I decided to join!

Lima by walking is worth taking only if Jose is giving the tour. Keep in mind that tour is held Mo-Sa (meeting point is Pariwana hostel, 10:30). Take 5 sols for public transport! And have some change to thank your tour guide ;) Jose will...More

This was a fun way to get to know Luma on your first day. The guides were very friendly and funny and they don’t bother to help you with anything else.

The enthusiasm with which Jose speaks of the city is contagious. He genuinely has knowledge of the history and current affairs, it's not like your listening to a prerecorded tape. Well organised with bus transfers etc. Thanks for the great morning!

The tour only includes a little taste of pisco. I suggest you eat before or after the tour. Do bring enough for tipping! These young people work their booties off to show you their city!
