Great Historical Overview

This was the perfect tour for an overview of Peru history and for seeing some important sites, although one day is not enough to really learn about the history of the country. It is a great start. The museum was fascinating and the ruins if the Inca city interesting. Lunch in Barrancos was really nice and seeing the main historical square of the city nice. Only problem was that the fountains were not working in the magical park and you did not include in your ad that transportation to and from hotel was only for hotels in Miraflores. You must say that because they wanted me to pay $30 for pickup when taxis cost at most $5! I am an experienced traveler so I knew the difference but others might not. They simply flagged a taxi for me in the street at the end of the tour and was so rushed to get in that I could not even search for a tip for the tour guide or driver. I felt bad about that but also felt bad about being dumped like that. Please let people know ahead of time the reality.
