Jonathan was a WONDERFUL tour guide! I could not have asked for anyone better to visit the Catacombs (a must-see in Lima). He was flexible and adjusted the tour to our needs! He is so experienced, kind, and knowledgeable on Peruvian facts! LOVED this tour :)

Lucas was an amazing tour guide. I usually don’t do city walking tours but this was worth it. We would never have seen or learned so much about Lima if it wasn’t for Lucas. I definitely recommend!

Our tour guide William was great! He was very knowledgeable and spoke very good English.
