A Recent Review of this tour

We booked a private 3 hour tour with Alfredo on our one day stopover in Lima. We are so glad we did. Our hotel was in Miraflores, which was lovely, but Alfredo took us to the other side of Lima and was an excellent source of so much of Lima's history. He spoke excellent English and was very helpful and flexible with us. Would highly recommend!
