Had a wonderful day with Antonella and Alonzo today. Antonella knows everything about the city and its history. We had great flexibility to adapt to things we wanted to do and see. Saw 8 departments in the area and enjoyed every minute. Ceviche at Mercado 1 was a treat.

Our cruise ship shuttle delivered us to the pickup point half an hour early. Fortunately, the driver was there early too. We stopped to pick up our guide, Rodrigo, and he was unphased by the schedule change. We enjoyed the tour very much, and also liked that we could customize it to meet our interests. Rodrigo was knowledgeable and answered... More

We were picked up at our hotel at the agreed upon time. We chose to go on this 5 hour tour to see most of the tourist places in Lima while we waited for an evening flight back to the USA. There was a driver and a tour guide. We drove to places, then got out of the car to... More

We only had a short time in Lima, since our cruise ship was there for half a day. Sandra and Jose made every effort to make sure that our tour was tailored to our needs and our time frame. There was a change in pickup location made by the cruise lines, and they were quick to respond and make sure... More

We had a limited time in Lima due to a shorter port time our ship would be in Lima. Also, we had to be shuttled to a central area in Lima by the ship and we had concerns about catching the shuttle back to the ship. Antonella was our guide and met us at the park. We had a beautiful,... More

Guide was on time. Car clean. Excellent English. Accommodated our particular interests. Went at our pace. Saw all kinds of places we never would have found on our own. Great overall view of the city and well planned. Would highly recommend Rodrigo and would definitely use him again on our next trip.

We had a great guide, walked along the ocean, several neighborhoods, squares and churches. We ended with the guide having lunch with us at an outdoor restaurant serving locals foods. We learned the history and local customs. Would highly recommend.

We had 10 hours to spend in Lima after disembarking our cruise. Booking with Peruvian Local Friend turned out to be the best choice we could have made. Their communication with us prior to our excursion was excellent. Cindy, our guide, exceeded our expectations. Not only is her English easy to understand, she is also friendly and thoughtful. We would... More

Peruvian Local Friend was easy to book with and communicated promptly. They had a great idea for us to send them our photo so they could find us! We had a short stop in Callao and Celebrity told us the evening before that we would be dropped off near San Miguel Mall instead of the gates of the port. Peruvian... More

Our guide Cindy and our driver Alonso gave us a day in Lima we will never forget. We do many private tours, and this was simply the best. Cindy is charming, knowledgeable, and doesn't sound as though this is the umpteenth time she has said the same thing. Her answers to our questions were thoughtful and thorough. Driving in Lima...
