Excellent tour, the Lima Highlights guide was very kind and gave us many recommendations about the districts we visited, the culture, gastronomy and history of Lima in general. Recommended for those who do not know the city. It is a good tour to begin to know her.

Very good tour. Very interesting to know the history and main places of these three districts. The Olivar park stands out, beautiful in all its extension! And the Barranco with its graffiti and the Bridge of Sighs
