We only had one free day in Lima before my husbands conference started. We booked a private tour with Alfredo for 6 hours. It was wonderful! Alfredo was very personable and so informative. He is very passionate about his country and we were very impressed with his knowledge as well as his English. We had a delicious lunch at a local restaurant that he chose and we loved it. It was a very enjoyable day and the driver was very professional and the car was immaculate. We highly recommend this tour guide.
