Excelente Fuimos por nuestra cuenta a conocer el centro historico de lima.Al llegar al transporte publico, para ir a este lugar, no habia alguien que nos ayude, pero jean pierre de lima by walking, se ofrecio muy amablemente para ayudarnos en la forma de como trasladarnos. Aceptamos unirnos a el y los turistas con los que iba a hacer el tour.Realmente fue una buena experiencia ir con ellos, ya que el dinero que pagas (tips) lo vale, ya que el guia está muy bien preparado en cuanto a los atractivos que iras viendo en la caminata, te ayuda con lo que necesites y te da recomendaciónes de lo que le pidas.100% recomendable!!

Free tour por Lima La mejor opción para un tour rápido y sencillo por el centro histórico de Lima. Nuestro guía JP sabia todo muy bien y lo explicó de una forma bastante agradable para todos, incluso nos recomendó lugares para visitar luego del tour. Al final le Sabas una propina que sentías que es un dinero mucho mejor invertido que en un city tour costoso o en un city bus.

Highly recommend bike tour, Jose was great My friend and I did the barranco and miraflores bike tour and we highly recommend it. Our tour guide Jose was not only informative but also very fun, not only giving us plain facts about the two districts but also interesting stories and anecdotes which felt like we are seeing more authenthic Lima.

Lima Os guias são profissionais, conhecem a cidade e passam conhecimentos específicos.A empresa das que operam em Lima é a mais preparada e as indicações são referente as oportunidades locais.Evitam levar os clientes em compras e aproveitam o tempo para explicações históricas.
Tour recomendado por Lima Muy buen tour por el centro histórico de lima. Nos dieron datos de excelentes restaurantes tradicionales de buen nivel y precios peruanos. Se cubre lo escencial de lima. Una buena alternativa considerando que en esta ciudad predominan los toures privados pagados en dólares que han de mostrar los mismos lugares.
