A Recent Review of this tour

The tour of Lima with Alfredo was exactly what we were after. It was fantastic to see Lima as a local. Wandering through the markets, Chinatown, the government area, & Barranco with Alfredo allowed us to see and experience things in a way that wouldn't be possible in the larger "commercial" tours. It also allowed us to ask questions and wander based on the kind of things we wanted to see - with Alfredo's guidance - which we wouldn't be able to do with a prefabricated "packaged" tour. Highly recommend!
