A Recent Review of this tour

This was a great tour of the fort and a chance to see the islands near Lima. After 4 days in the urban environment of Lima, we really enjoyed getting out on the ocean. Alfredo was very knowledgeable. The highlight of the trip was swimming with the sea lions! Don't let the cold water keep you from enjoying the experience!
