Tour: #56739, Ica Tour Experience (3 Days), Huacachina, Ica, Peru    view tour
Date: Oct 15/18

Evelyn is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and congenital guide. Three of us older guys were on a three day tour where she adapted to our quirkinesses enabling us to "go with the flow. " She reads people well and is flexible to their needs. She made us feel connected to the places we visited, her English is excellent and we felt confident when communicating with the locals. Evelyn assured that we had a full day's experience and were treated well. With Evelyn we are left with a very positive view of Peru.

Evelyn has been super nice and insightful while taking me around Lima. She has great knowledge about history and current happenings in the city. She is flexible with her time and changes plans if other ideas are presented. She even tried very hard to get me into a restaurant although we were unsuccessful but that is not because she did not try enough. All around a great two days in the city. Also, thanks to her driver, Herardo (spell?).

I spent several days with Evelyn and enjoyed every minute of it! She knows not only a lot about the sites which we visited but she also new a lot of nice local restaurants with great food. Moreover, she was very flexible to adjust on the spot the program when asked (of course within the reasonable possibilities). Furthermore, everything was well organized and going very smoothly. Bottom line, great tours in a beautiful country with a great guide!

Evelyn was absolutely wonderful! Traveling alone, I wanted a female guide and she was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Her English was great and I encouraged her to change her info from conversational to fluent! She was happy to recommend a hotel suitable for a woman traveling alone as well as a fabulous idea for visiting the archeological site and restaurant for my dinner. Highly recommend her as a guide and her driver was excellent! 5 stars!

Evelyn was quite flexible with adjusting the tour and did a pretty good job in the order of things. We saw a lot and managed to get in an extra hour or so with and early start. She was ready to go with driver when we got off ship. Evelyn was quite informative. Very pleasant to be with. I would use her again.

Tour: #56738, Paracas National Reserve & Ica, Paracas, Ica, Peru    view tour
Date: Mar 8/18

Evelyn had retained an excellent guide for the Paracas Reserve. He was very informative and pleasant. He also gave information for the Ica region and Huacachino oasis. Only challenge was getting out of the rather plain St Martin port as Princess had no shuttles and guide has to retain one.

I have had the privilege to use many guides in many parts of the world and Evelyn is the best I have ever used. She has a love for the Peruvian culture that radiates through to her love of her job. If you are going to travel in Peru I would highly recommend that you book your vacation with Evelyn as your guide. I give her highest marks for her guiding abilities but I am most impressed with the fact that she is a wonderful person. Evelyn is a jewel!

Evelyn did a great job coordinating our visit to the Paracas National Reserve and a trip to the Ballestras Islands. The tour guide who accompanied us was extremely knowledgeable. We were the only group on the ship that was able to see both of the sites in this port. I would recommend Evelyn to all others who are traveling to this area.

Evelyn is an excellent guide. She made our Lima tour extremely enjoyable. It's also important to note that our cruise ship docked 2 hours late, because the port was fogged in. Even so, she waited for us and made no attempt to abbreviate our day. Thank you for your informative, memorable day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jeffrey, I appreciate your words, thank you very much! :) It is nice to knnow that you were happy with your tour in Lima although the time was a little short. Thanks to the changes of time, this was the first time I touched the closed port ... you always learn something new! - Thank you :) Regards and big hugs, Evelyn

Under Evelyn's guidance I travelled by private car from Arica, Chile, to Cartagena de Indias, Columbia. I enjoyed the trip thoroughly and may recommend Evelyn as a guide without reservation. Evelyn prepared an attractive travelling schedule and was able to adapt the plans where necessary. We travelled through Northern Peru during the state of emergency. Thanks to Evelyn's knowledge and contacts we were able to cross the region and reach Ecuador. Evelyn has a pleasant and easy going personality.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Arthur, I appreciate your opinion and is a pleasure to know that you enjoy the trip.

Date: Apr 17/13

Evelyn & her excellent driver took us on a comprehensive tour of Lima. Her English & knowledge of the area are very good. They were flexible in meeting our requests & diverting around police road blocks. We felt safe wherever they took us. The only drawback about our tour was the van was quite small. We noticed this elsewhere in Peru, however, it made for a tighter ride than we felt was comfortable & almost impossible for the person sitting on the middle to see. Six guests is maximum.
