We were picked up on time by our guide Manuel. It was even a private tour, which we didn't expect. First we were in Miraflores on the cliffs and visited the Parque d'Amor. Then we went to Huaca Pucllana, where we saw the temple from the outside. Our guide gave us a lot of information the whole time and was able to answer every question. Then we drove past the olive park in San Isidro. Unfortunately there was no time to get off there and go for a little walk. Then we went to the old town, where we visited the Franciscan monastery with the catacombs. Highly recommended!!! After a walk in the old town we went back to our hotel. Overall, the tour was very nice and we enjoyed it.

The guide Jordan came to pick us up punctually to start the tour, on the way to the park he told us a little about the history of Peru which allowed us to better understand the show of the waters in the fountain. A very good and fun experience in the labyrinth fountain where you need to get in and out without getting wet, in short I recommend the tour and note ten to the agency and especially your guide Jordan!!!

We really enjoyed our tour at Magic foundation show. One of the reason was our guide Jordan Mendieta who shared history of each fountain and very knowledgeable about culture of Latin America. He is multilingual and very well spoken including English. Highly recommended.

Jordan was awesome. Lots of history and conversation with the group. The park was beautiful.

Jordan was great and had a great time on this tour.
