Recomendado. Es un tour libre pero el guia lo toma muy enserio como si fuera un servicio con un precio alto; no por tantas comodidades sino por lo curioso y entretenido, lo que resulta muy buena experiencia. No es para tomarlo si el plan es confort porque es caminar. Pero es para obtener un honesto panorama cultural de la ciudad Lima.

Our guide was young Pablo (afro hair) who we enjoyed very much. The food (and drink) variety was extensive, and Pablo was knowledgeable about the flavors and preparation. And, there was plenty of food - glad we skipped breakfast before the tour. We liked this tour because it was more about the eating culture and flavors of regular working Peruvians - NOT just small tastings at high end restaurants. Would recommend this tour.

It was simply the best tour I had in Lima! The guide Filipe is just great, he doesn't do any classic tours but really leads you through the history of Lima in connection with great food and great markets. I felt comfortable at all times and can only recommend this tour to anyone who does not want a classic tour. You can talk to him openly and express your wishes. He knows his way around very well. I'll definitely book a tour with him again when I'm in Lima!

She knew a lot of the history and provided her view which made the experience much better. The tour was nothing I was expecting in a good way.
