We had a private tour. Andrea, our guide, was warm and very knowledgeable. We got to see different huacas (pyramids) around the city ans learnt about some of its districts. The highlight for us was the Museum. It was amazing. You could spend a whole day there. The museum’s restaurant is a beautiful place. The driver waited for us and took us back to our hotel. He was also very friendly. Overall, a great experience!!

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?

Muy buen tour. Jennifer, nuestra guía nos ilustró mucho sobre la historia de Perú
