It wasn’t what I had expected but was a good experience once on the bus. The pick up directions were incorrect. There was no NVK cinema ticket office. There was no signage at all for the bus stop. After asking several locals we finally found where to meet. Good thing we initially arrived an hour early. The tour was narrated by an actual person instead of a prerecorded dialogue. However, they used a poor quality speaker system instead of headphones. Could not hear or understand much of the descriptions. Spoken first in Spanish then English. The highlight was an actual off bus tour of the Lima Cathedral.
We arrived 10 minutes early and the guide was already there and waiting for us. She started our tour right away. We wandered all around the historic district trying a number of savory and sweet treats, as well as several nice drinks. Our guide Diana was very knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as telling us lots about local foods in Lima. We had an awesome time on the tour and we would highly recommend it. We do food tours in most cities we visit and this one was one of the best. Make sure to come hungry.
Visiting all the places was a treat ! The best thing though was our travel buddies Aymen and Pablo. We were picked up right on time in a perfect condition SUV for the long drive. Our buddies were courteous, well spoken in English, knowledgeable and by the end of the day we were like friends. A 17 hour trip that day felt like traveling with family. Highly recommended!!!
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.
Nicolas gave us so much local information and history, that we relied on it for the rest of our trip in other locations. He took us to several interesting places, never rushed us, always answered our questions. He bought us an authentic churro and took photos of us. Gracias, Nikolas!
