Walking Tour – LIMA Excelentes profissionais. Apesar de simples a metodologia, pois depende de ônibus público para mudança de bairros, os guias são ótimos. Agradecimentos em especial ao Alex – muito engraçado e gentil.

Jose is Amazing This was my first bike tour and I absolutely loved it. Jose was my tour guide and he was amazing! I am a solo travel and he went above and beyond for me. The tour was about 2.5 hours and it was perfect. We stopped multiple times along the way to take pictures and he explained the history of the city. Highly recommend this bike tour!

Impresionante recorrido ¡Hermosa tarde de paseo en bicicleta por lima! ! Nuestro guía nos llevó a caballo al parque Kennedy, el parque del amor, el centro comercial larcomar y por el malecón con vista al mar. También disfrutamos de unos bonitos graffitis. El recorrido fue bastante fácil para nosotros, ¡Lo recomendaría con seguridad!

Debe hacer en Lima Hicimos dos recorridos seguidos (Lima histórica y Barranco). Ambos fueron brillantes. Alex y José son guías increíbles y realmente conocen un millón de cosas diferentes. Lo más importante es que ambos aportaron humor a la gira: el tiempo pasó volando. Recomendaríamos este recorrido a cualquiera que quiera ver ambas áreas y aprender sobre Lima. Gracias de nuevo por un recorrido/recorridos increíbles 🙂
