Our guide, Jonathan, was incredibly knowledgeable and made the tour really interactive! He answered all of our questions, knew a ton of history about the city, and gave us recommendations for other places to eat and visit in Lima. When the tour was finished, we did not realized it had been 3.5 hours since we started! Our tour started and ended with a private car picking us up from our hotel, which we appreciated as well.
