I had heard that the Larco Museum and the Magic water circuit were two things I should see in Lima. This tour was a perfect way to see them both. The tour even included a stop for a Pisco sour and a traditional sandwich at one of the oldest bars in Lima.

Great private collections of pre-Peruvian artifacts from 3000 years ago. Must see with beautiful garden & surroundings. Tour guide, Victor, was very informative & knowledgeable. We had a nice pork sandwich with pisco sour. Nice water light show with history of Peru.

The museum was the real highlight of this tour. The water fountains were pleasant but would have traded them in for more time at the museum. Guide was informative, tour well organised. Enjoyed the visit to the tavern.

Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and shared information in a way that it was apparent that she loved her job. We enjoyed our time with her and especially appreciated her going above and beyond to assist in obtaining transport back to our ship.

The guide was very knowledgable at the museum. The light show was very disappointing. I booked the tour for the interest in the light show. You could do the light show on your own for only 2 soles. If you are looking for an English guide, be aware that they are usually small groups or by yourself. I was by myself on this tour - could be why I didn't enjoy it.

I forgot to rate this when we did it but I should have. The tour was great - the Magic Waters are in the Guiness Book Of World Records and well worth it. AND the tour gets you in without having to stand in line for an hour. The Larco museum was very interesting but the park and the Magic Waters were unbelievable!!! What a great water/lazer/light show. Don't miss it!!

I would have given this tour 5 stars, as the tour itself is more than worth it. My problem was with the guide. My paperwork said that the tour began at 4:30 he called my room at 4:00 and chastised me for being late. When I showed him my paperwork, he told me that I should be more careful in the future so I would not be late. Very negative first impression. He and the driver maligned Viator at that point I guess they did not know that I understood Spanish. Very unprofessional. Once the tour started, we enjoyed the museum and the water circuit but the initial meeting cast a negative feeling over the whole evening.
