Aaron went above and beyond to ensure a great tour. The highlight was going to his house where he prepared a meal for us. Great tour, great driver, great host!

Aaron's city tour is wonderful! He provides the right balance of visiting Lima's churches, civic buildings, museums, and galleries. With his brother doing the driving, you not only get to see the city like a local, but you enjoy the convenience of being picked up / dropped off in multiple locations. It really makes things easy. The highlight of the tour was Aaron's Mum and her Peruvian cuisine! Visiting the family home and enjoying freshly made Ceviche and Pisco was an experience I shall always cherish!

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Aaron is an absolute delight, and his tour included a delicious lunch prepared by his lovely mother. Aaron is friendly, attentive, warm, and personable; I would encourage any fellow traveler to book a tour with him.

Aaron was terrific in taking the two of us around the city. He is knowledgable in the history and background of all the places we visited. He easily answered many of our questions. He was flexible with the timing of the tour and did not rush us from place to place. His English is very good. He is also very professional and respectful. We would have no hesitation in recommending him if you are looking for a guide to Lima.

Splendid experience. Aaron's personal touch and creativity make this tour truly unique and outstanding. Aaron went above and beyond. Aaron's love of Lima and the local culture is evidenced by his well-planned tour of the city's highlights. The tour concluded with pisco sours and a homecooked meal, lovingly prepared by his mother.

Aaron was awesome. We wanted to change up the tour last minute and there was no hesitation at all. Aaron had great ideas of things to see that were not in every tourist guide. We had a great day that culminated at his home with a great meal prepared by his mom. The home was lovely and the warmth and hospitality felt by his family true was the perfect ending to the tour.

Aaron surpassed all expectations! He is truly THE best. With his expert driver John (& immaculate roomy van for the 4 of us), Aaron could escort us on foot to many widely dispersed venues with perfect timing (front row at changing of guard, no-wait Cathedral entry, photo ops galore at Love Park, uncrowded top museum, etc.). The highlight: a delightful dinner prepared by his charming mother at their home, where he demo-ed the art of making Pisco sours! He's a top guide AND a lovely person who really cares.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for this words... I will let my mom know right away. I hope you come back to Peru one day soon. Aaron

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

Fantastic Time in Lima!!!! I was on a cruise so only had a day. I wanted to see Lima. Aaron did an incredible job. I had asked him to show me his Lima and the areas that were funky and fun. First stop was the MATE museum which was wonderful. Then it was a walk around the area. I kept stopping for pictures. Aaron took this in stride. Then we went over to Miraflores to walk around some more. If you come to Lima, contact Aaron and let him show you Lima. PS: The traffic here is CRAZY and I live in Chicago.

This tour was absolutely outstanding. We visited an art museum, a photo museum, both outstanding, then a downtown city tour, followed by dinner with Aaron's mother. Aaron and his mother created an awesome dinner for our group of 7 with native Peruvian dishes served in their home, the highlight of our 2 week trip to the Galapagos and Machu Picchu. I would highly recommend Aaron for any tour in Lima, Cusco, or Machu Picchu. His excellent English, personality, high energy, & great attitude are the best.

Aaron did a great job including airport pickup in our afternoon and evening tour for 7. He quickly found us an excellent restaurant for dinner and then assured that we reached the Magic Water Park in time to tour the exhibit before the main show. Overall, Aaron was awesome with his personality, communication & planning skills, and attitude toward visitors. I would highly recommend him for a tour in Lima, Cusco or Machu Picchu.

Our city tour and culinary experience with Aaron was excellent. Aaron is very flexible on this tour as we have another city tour scheduled as part of our larger tour in Peru. Aaron focused on areas of the city we wanted to see and that would not be covered on the other tour. The culinary experience in his mother's kitchen was wonderful. The food was very good and we felt welcome in their home.

Having a driver and car was so very helpful - it allowed us to see more of Lima in one day. The tour is semi-customize-able which is nice. Aaron is very knowledgeable, and the nicest thing about this particular tour is going to Aaron's home and meeting his mother and eating a meal with them. Highly recommended for those who do not have much time to see Lima.

Our tour of Lima with Aaron was wonderful. He knows EVERYTHING about the history of Peru, its churches, buildings and culture. As we walked around the city, he explained everything we were seeing. He even took us to the huge supermarket to show us popular fruits, vegetables, and fish. His driver drive us from area to area then we hopped out and explored on foot. Such a smart plan to make the best use of our time. And the authentic lunch prepared for us his mother in her own kitchen was a highlight.

We had a fantastic day with Aaron. We saw and learned so much and Aaron's ability to impart his knowledge of the history and culture of Peru was interesting and effortless. Of course the highlight was having His Mom prepare lunch for us. The Ceviche (and everything else) was outstanding. The Pisco Sours were a treat. His Mom is a delight. He also suggested sites to see on our second day in Lima. We had a great day with Aaron and highly recommend him.

Our day tour with Aaron in Lima, Peru on 28 Feb. 2018 was excellent. He and his brother picked us up at the designated time from the cruise port, at which we immediately began our tour of Lima. Aaron was very friendly and answered all of our questions along the way. He first asked us where we had been. At the end of the day, we were given a presentation of a sumptuous lunch by Aaron's mama and a nice homemade Pisco Sour drink before he took us to the airport. I would recommend his tours to anyone

Aaron was OUTSTANDING. We used him 3 days and he arranged and oversaw everything, including shepherding us through a pretty stressful bus terminal. We had a number of obscure places we wanted to visit and he took it on himself to some very thorough research. A delight to deal with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Robert It was really a pleasure to take you around Lima those 3 days. All the best, Aaron

Aaron is great. He seamlessly modified his stock-tour to my particular interest. Saw some great art and photography galleries . . . had morning tea at a quiet neighborhood garden spot . . . walked through the downtown area and the city-center plaza . . . and had lunch at a nice restaurant with a wide variety of choices. Aaron is a savvy guide and very knowledgeable about Lima (and Machu Picchu). He's also an honest, straight-shooter. A lot of guides don't report incomes, etc. He keeps excellent records.

Aaron was a wonderful guide...very thoughtful and accommodating. Gave us a very concise history of Peru and also shared his thoughts about good and difficult situations the country is having. The highlight of the tour was his mother, Dammar, showing us how to prepare and then cooking our evening meal in her home. There were 5 in our group with me being the leader, and all of us were impressed and would not hesitate to use Aaron again for any tour that we would want in Peru.
