We really enjoyed this tour and recommend it as an introduction to the highlights of Lima. Our guide Elisa was very well informed and gave us many insights into Lima's history. We especially enjoyed the Larcoe Museum where we had a delightful lunch before touring the museum.

Private Full-Day Best Tour of Lima

I had a perfectly wonderful day in Lima with Maria and my guide and Bernardo as our driver. They were so gracious and and Maria’s knowledge of the history and sites were so informative, and she had an easy and comfortable way. As she had previously been a guide at The Larco, I enjoyed it in another way as my husband and I had visited before. As my husband was working, and I was on my own it was the very best solution and experience.

Wonderful overview of Lima

Our guide, Gabby, was extremely charming and knowledgeable and our driver was also cheerful and skilled. The essential elements of the tour are fantastic (San Francisco Monastery & crypts/Larco/ and a fascinating driving tour) the private aspect allowed us to add a visit to much less visited Inglesia Santo Domingo to see the remains of St. Rose of Lima (and two other notable saints). Also, in addition to being a beautiful botanical hacienda and museum, the Larco has a lovely restaurant.

Thank you so much for your kind review of our services. We appreciate you taking the time to do so. Gaby is indeed the sweetest guide! We are thrilled to learn just how much you enjoyed having her and Coqui (driver) for the day, we hope you come back to visit soon. :D

The tour was conducted in a very professional manner by Mr Jorge the tour guide & Mr George the driver. Very informative. Minor changes to the itinerary to suit my needs as well. Overall a wonderful experience. A very good way to explore Lima in a day as a solo traveler without any hassles.

Comprehensive Lima City Tour

We had a great city tour of Lima with Maricarmen. We hit all the highlights of the city and was particularly enamored with the Larco Museum. What was great was the Maricarmen had worked at the museum and was able to give us a very personal tour of the exhibits. We also enjoyed a lovely lunch at the museum restaurant. Highly recommend this especially with the crazy traffic of Lima!

Maricarmen was just the right guide for you! Traffic in Lima IS crazy most of the time. Despite this, our drivers know how to make the best of it. We're glad you enjoyed your city tour with us. Best regards
