It was simply the best tour I had in Lima! The guide Filipe is just great, he doesn't do any classic tours but really leads you through the history of Lima in connection with great food and great markets. I felt comfortable at all times and can only recommend this tour to anyone who does not want a classic tour. You can talk to him openly and express your wishes. He knows his way around very well. I'll definitely book a tour with him again when I'm in Lima!

Jimena mg tour guide was amazing. She new her stuff and we hav wonderful conversations as we walked from place to place. She knew a lot of the history and provided her view which made the experience much better. The tour was nothing I was expecting in a good way. Had some wonderful food and I particularly loved the visit to the market in which I tried wonderful fruits and an amazing Ceviche. Thanks a Jimena. We

This was a great activity for our family of 5! The organizers were very helpful in arranging the right bikes for our 3 kids (including one kid who sat on a seat on mom’s bike). The tour was interesting and fun, and gave us a great flavor of Lima….way more than we would have seen without the tour. Highly recommend!

Lucas was so accommodating and knowledgeable about the city! His love and energy for Lima made the day so wonderful!! Thank you!

Great tour in the city center, for me Miraflores was not so excited, but panoramic view is very very nice there
