As others have correctly reviewed, this old, smelly bus sat in traffic most of the 4 hours we were on. No place to stop and use the restroom and the only highlight was the Monastery in which you can do better on your own. The guide was bored, we could not hear him at times or he was way too... More

The problem with the tour isn't the service, it's that there's just not enough to see in Lima. Up to four hours of a tour is fine, though this isn't a hop-on hop-off service, when a chunk of it is stuck in traffic in grubby parts of the city, just isn't worth it. The time you get on the bus...

Two friends and I signed up for the three hour city tour. We asked if it was hop on/hop off style and were told "yes". Apparently we were not told the truth. We paid our $25 each to get on the bus. It's was running 15 min late for a 3:15pm scheduled departure. Once we boarded, we discovered there were... More

For a pleasant experience, stay in San Isidro and/or Barranco. Walking these neighborhoods is easy and enjoyable. Miraflores is touted but for us it is less attractive, more mixed and bad traffic. Sight highlights include Larco and Pedro de Osma museums, Iglesia Santo Domingo & Franciscan convent. **check out water fountain park after dark**. Tourist safety is highly stressed, but... More

Was an ok tour and the nighttime aspect was cool. Seeing all the buildings lit up and people in streets and parks. Fountain show was very cool. Hardest part was determining where to get bus. The lacomar center is huge. On second floor of mall we found their office and got directions. On the street between the blue and red... More

I always like to do the City Sightseeing tour bus whenever I am in a new place as it provides me with a first glimpse of the city and then I figure out what I want to do from there. The research i did on Lima was not wrong.....there really isn't that much to do and the tour kinda confirmed... More

Stayed in Lima for 4 days staying in another brilliant airbnb apartment. Fantastic city but much bigger and spread out then I had envisaged. It is made up of distinct areas that have their own charm, such as Miraflores, Barranco and the historic centre. The changing of the guard should not be missed. As there were 3 of us using... More

We were able to touch the highlights in a fairly short period of time. Not too much walking and the pace kept it interesting. Guide was very informed. It wa good to get an idea of what you might want to follow up on your own later.
