Lima, Peru

My name is Aaron and I am from Lima, I studied to be a Tour Guide at the Center of Education for Tourism in Peru (CENFOTUR).

My big passion is to show my culture. I enjoy talking about the roots of our customs in the past and the present.

One of my favorite topics is food, because in Peru we have a diversity in products and ways to cook them. I have worked as a tour guide since 2000 and as tour planner since 2007. I know the best places to go to taste a delicious Pisco Sour or an exquisite Ceviche Peruano. I have a lot of experience showing people around Peru in places like:
- Cusco & Machu Picchu like my second home.
- Lima my city and paradise for foodies, fashion and architecture.
- Ica, the Ballestas islands and Huacachina Sandboard adventure.
- Arequipa city and Colca Cayon.
- Puno and Lake Titicaca.
- Puerto Maldonado, the jungle of Peru

I enjoy to meeting new people and showing them my country. At the same time I get to learn a little bit of your country also. I offer A guided Gay Friendly tour of Peru. All of my tours and services mentioned here can be customized to your needs.

You are invited to visit and discover the wonders of Peru.

All my tours shown on Tours by Locals can be purchase as is or I can customize them for you. If you only need help with booking tickets in Peru let me know.

A Recent Review of this guide

WOW! That's the only way to describe this tour and Aaron and his family. I have been to 31 countries and like to take tours and this one is hands down the best experience I have had. After a great tour of a great city by a knowledgeable and passionate tour guide, you go back to his home and meet his family for a home cooked family lunch and some drinks. Awesome way to experience the culture. If you go to Lima, this is a must do. No exceptions. Aaron is a great guy as well, you will not be disappointed
