Alfredo gave us a wonderful, informative tour of Lima and its surroundings. He even came supplied with visual aides when it enhanced his point. Clearly he had a great grasp of all the history of Lima, Peru and its place in the world. A real plus was he had learned photography composition from his father and offered to take photos of us or assist us with ours, with remarkable results. We ended the tour with a Pisco toast. We highly recommend Alfredo for a tour of Lima.
