What people are saying about Barranco District

Loved the water show, the cooking workshop! But, most of all I learned so much about Peru from my guide. As we walked along the streets she knew everything about the areas, buildings, who lived there..! She was amazing! I wish I'd met her on my first day, it would have given me even more to discover!! Highly recommend! My brain cannot remember her name?
