Date: Mar 6/20

This tour was constrained by timing imposed by our ships departure time. Alfredo adapted his plan to suite. We had a wonderful walk around the centre of Lima. Alfredo was great, full of interesting information and stories, old and new. We enjoyed visiting the oldest bar in the city for coffee, cake and pisco . We were even guided by him by as to choice of shops to buy gifts. His knowledge of the city really helped here. We had a great time and rate him and the experience as 10 out 10.

Date: Mar 5/20

We had a wonderful tour. The ruins were fantastic and the museum was filled with interesting and wondrous artefacts, well documented. Then we drove around the city stopping regularly to record the trip photographically, seeing interesting places off the tourist trail. Our guide, Alfredo, was excellent adapting his plan to meet our needs and interest. He and his driver were great, nothing was too much for them. Guide and tour were 5*.

Alfredo was charming, personable, well informed about all the sites we visited, his home city and country. Entirely flexible to our particular interests and schedule. He was accompanied by Eduardo, a fine and courteous driver in an excellent comfortable vehicle-air conditioned and spacious. As Alfredo will want to show you everything, of which he is justly proud and enthusiastic, you may need to make sure he understands your time limitations, if you have any. We recommend him without qualification.

We spent an excellent day with Alfredo as we walked around the many parts of Lima. He arrived at our Hotel promptly and gave us an overview of the City before boarding a public bus towards the Historic Centre. He was extremely kind and respectful throughout the day - giving us enough time to look around and offer unique options of tourist events and locations. Our travels around the City were varied and illuminating. Very well done Alfredo!

We had a fun day with Alfredo in Lima. We needed to communicate our pick up location and time due to the cruise line shuttling all passenger to a shopping mall because of port issues. He picked us up on time and we were off for a great day. He was very knowledgeable about Peru's history. He joined us for lunch at a local restaurant for an authentic Peruvian lunch which we requested. We had a nice air conditioned SUV with a driver which helped make easy stops and pick ups in different locations.

Alfredo did a great job showing us around Lima. He was able to accommodate my mobility scooter and knew exactly where to take us to maximize our time in town. Traffic was, as usual in Lima, very heavy but we completed a great tour and thoroughly enjoyed our day. He knew quite a lot about the local culture and history. THANKS!!!

We really enjoyed our tour with Alfredo. He is very knowledgeable about both Lima and all the municipalities there, and also about the history of the area. We learned many things we did not know before, and we came away from the tour much more informed. This tour literally took us all through Lima, which is no easy feat in 9 hours, given the traffic situation (apparently Lima ranks third in the world as worst place for traffic!!!). A thoroughly wonderful day and we are so glad we chose Alfredo for it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tami and MIke I am very thankful for your visit to LIma. Definitely, it was a good time to know the best of the capital of Perú. Hope the things are well there. I have the best memory of you. Thanks a lot for your trust and time to write this review. Hope to see you in a next time. Good luck.

We had such a wonderful adventure on our tour with Alfredo. Swimming with sea lions is such a unique opportunity and one that we will remember forever. Alfredo was so knowledgeable, showing us the historic Callao district and taking us to a local restaurant for a delicious lunch. We also had a change to the time that we needed to be back to the hotel and he couldn't have been nicer about changing the plans. Highest praise for Alfredo and this tour.

My husband and I had this tour with Alfredo on October 24, 2019. We had a nice drive from our apartment to Callao and walked through Callao. We also toured a military fort with its museum and learned interesting facts about the history of Peru we did not know before. The highlight of the tour was, of course, the trip to the Palomino Islands and swimming with sea lions. Alfredo is a very good guide, attentive and with a good command of English. We enjoyed the tour very much.
