He was great. Very knowledgeable about current and historical events in Lima. We covered so much territory. We never could have seen as much in one day on our own. He took us to a nice lunch buffet with Peruvian food which gave us an opportunity to sample a lot of different foods.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I also had a wonderful time with you guys. I'm glad you liked Lima.

Abel planned a wonderful day of touring for our group while visiting Lima. We could not have asked for a better guide! He picked us up at the port gate and we rode in a luxury vehicle with AC as we toured the countryside on our way to Pachacamac ruins. He was so knowledgeable about everything we saw.....a wealth of information. He was also very flexible in making stops or altering plans to meet our needs. I highly recommend him!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jane. I really appreaciate it

Abel was INCREDIBLE! We hired him for 2 days while in Lima. First of all, his English is perfect. Second, his knowledge of Lima and the Pachacamac ruins was also perfect. We had a group of 8 and he was extremely attentive to our needs. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him, without reservation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh my God !!!!! Thank you very much for your words. I feel so honored. Thanks a million. Kindest regards, Abel

Abel gave us a comprehensive and informative Lima Highlights City Tour. Abel is a very personable individual who is passionate about his city and country. Would recommend him any time. Something to note which is completely outside Tours for Locals control . If you are joining a tour from a ship, the access for the guide is strictly controlled and you must obtain the port provided shuttle (infrequent) which takes you outside to a transit area .A little disconcerting if you haven't been previously

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much sir. I am glad you guys are back to the UK safe and sound. It was great to meet. You know that over here in S. America, we, Peruvians, are well-know for our hospitality and warm welcome to everyone. Once again, thanks a million for your fantastic review. Abel

Abel was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and extremely chrasmatic. He really knows his history, architecture and, of course, his culture. We lunched at an excellent Peruvian restaurant and the food was delicious. We were looking for a particular type of souvenir. Abel, went out of his way to bring us to a shop that he thought might sell it. We could not be more pleased with him and would heartily recommend him. Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you guys. It was so great to meet you. I appreaciate all your comments.

Abel is delightful! He took my daughter on a tour of the city and was very fun and knowledgeable. She could not praise him enough! I'm so glad she got the chance to see the city with a local who is kind and trustworthy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jerri, thank you for your nice comments. It was very to be communicating with you and to have met Haley. She was also fun and very eager to get to know as much as she could about Peru's way of living. I wish her good luck on her project

Abel was very knowledgeable about Lima and it's history. He showed his love for his country in many ways. We enjoyed our time with him. We were able to see so much of Lima due to Abel organization of our tour. He took very good care of us. Everyone should be so lucky to have Abel as a guide.

Superb tour of Lima! Abel's English is excellent! Exceeded expectations. I speak fluent Spanish, but the other 3 in my party did not. In these situations, usually I end up being the translator/tour guide, because the "bilingual" guide cannot communicate well. But with Abel, I just relaxed and enjoyed his in-depth explanations of amazing sights and experiences. The ride was comfortable, the sites were well chosen, and we had a great time. He earned our trust and admiration.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. It's so nice of you guys. I also had a great time with you. As I told you the day of the tour you guys are fantastic people. Cheers.
