Abel P.

Lima, Peru

Hi guys !!! Nice to meet you. My name's Abel, I'm a Native Peruvian tour guide based in Lima.

I've been working in tourism for around 12 years and love it . I consider guiding people around my hometown LIMA is not only my full-time job but my passion. Since I was a kid I've been immersed in the fantastic world of history, archaeology and geography and cultures because my parents were both high-school teachers. My dad used to teach History and Geography and my mom was a Spanish language teacher. I'd honor to share with you all my knowledge about Peruvian history, cultures, traditions, customs and lifestyles of my incredible country . One more passion I have is learning foreign languages. I'm fluent in English ( kinda American accent because years ago I was an exchange student in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA ) , but I can also speak French , Portuguese, Italian with fluency and some conversational German ( die Deutsche sprache ) . I am a licensed and authorized guide by the Peruvian Ministry of Tourism ( MINCETUR ) and by the College of Bachelors in Tourism of Lima ( COLITUR Association ) I invite you guys to discover Lima and its surrounding areas. You are free to take a look at my tours and if there's something you wanna add or modify, I am totally FLEXIBLE to do so.
Cruise ship passengers are highly welcome to contact me for a tour as well. I know quite well how to manage cruise ship operations because a couple of years ago I used to work on a cruise ship. I will be very glad if you guys drop me a line. Hope to hear from you soon . Je parle FRANCAIS. Eu falo PORTUGUES. Io parlo ITALIANO. Ich spreche ein wenig DEUTSCH. Tous sont bienvenus. Tutti sono benvenutti a contattarmi. Todos vocés podem me contatar. Alle sind sehr Willkommen.

A Recent Review of this guide

A'bel brings the gold museum to life. He knew the story behind each of the 14,000 fascinating gold (plus some silver and other ornaments) pieces. You absolutely need him as the museum is not well curated. The artifacts span over 2000 years AND ARE ALL PRE-INCA. He knew of each tribe and further illuminated the glittering gold of the museum.
