Daniel was very knowledgeable and informative- we had so much fun! My boyfriend and I wanted to have lunch at Botanico and he offered to wait for us. Note, it was just my boyfriend and I so we got lucky with a private tour. He charged a time extension but it was very affordable. It would have been a lot more expensive if we had to Uber back. Daniel also even called Botanico to make sure 1.15 hour was enough time to eat and hooked us up with another wine tasting after the wine tour! Overall we were very pleased with our experience. Thank you Daniel for a great time and also making some travel recommendations for Lima!

The tour has been very nice, both the views of the mountains and the snow, the landscape that can be seen is really beautiful, also on the way the views are very nice, on the way back we stopped at the chocolate house, which I like, very nice picturesque and the chocolates are delicious Both the guide Pablo and the driver are very cool, either of them. If you are in doubt about this tour, I recommend it!!!

This tour was amazing and the couple that were my guides were so helpful and spoke English. This is an amazing way to see the best sights of the city!
