We did a 4 hour tour with Rodrigo as guide and Alonso as driver. What a super wonderful introduction to Peru with Lima our only one day stop. They did an excellent job of managing traffic and giving us quite a bit of history and local culture in our short visit. We had the best(and originally founded) Pisco Sour of... More

As we were on a cruise ship, we were picked up by Alonso and driven into Lima (1 hour drive with traffic delays) to meet our guide, Rodrigo, at the Food Market in central Lima. We did a modified version of the "Food & Sights" tour (5 hours) as we were in port the day before our tour and had... More

our guide Rodrigo was friendly and so smart about the country, city, history, customs, neighborhoods. He really made us feel like we had spent the day with a local friend and showed us around like we were family. GREAT TOUR

Four of us arrived by ship for a one day stay. We docked in Callao which is a solid 1 hour drive to the center city during weekdays. Lima is a hard city to navigate on your own. I just wouldn't do it. Leave it to professionals. As promised, our driver met us at the Callao port gate (hint: take... More

We only had a short time in Lima but wanted to see the highlights quickly and efficiently. We discovered Peruvian Local Friend on TripAdvisor and were very pleased with their service. A driver picked us up at the airport (at 1 in the morning!) and another driver took us back to the airport about 30 hours later. In between our... More

After reading others' reviews, we booked a 6 hour (plus 2 more hours driving time) with Peruvian Local Friend. We prepaid half in advance through a direct cash deposit in our local Wells Fargo Bank - thus a trust had been established. We arrived on a cruise ship, took a shuttle bus to the port gate, and were greeted by... More

We got a bad initial impression due to late pick-up from the airport. Next day we met Cindy who tried her best to show Lima in 5 hours. She is very knowledgeable and accommodating.

Had a great time with a tour guide named Antonella, that picked me up from my hotel in Miraflores, toured that district, along with Barranco, and the plaza de armas to watch the changing of the guard, and other sights including the Monastery of San Francisco ( I got lucky, wanted to see it, and she interned there for her...

My family and I did the 3.5 hour walking tour of Lima with Eliana, and we had a great experience! Eliana picked us up from our hotel right on time and took us to Central Lima where we spent the majority of the day walking around. Eliana gave us a great overview of Lima's history and showed us all the... More

I did the half day Lima city tour with Eliana. It was a lot of fun and a great experience! Eliana is extremely knowledgeable on the history and culture of the city. She was very accommodating and a fantastic guide! Thanks Eliana and Peruvian Local Friend!
