We really enjoyed the afternoon at the markets. Our guide was kind and willing to answer all of our questions. The food we tasted was great and he was so patient with my need to take photos of EVERYTHING (I’m a photographer). I would suggest bringing a bottle of water. We did not and we really regretted it. Also, you need small denominations of cash if you are wanting to purchase water or anything at the market.

Die Tour mit Will und José war toll. Wir wurden direkt am Hotel abgeholt und hatten die Möglichkeit in das Leben der Menschen in Lima einzutauchen. Die drei Märkte haben uns sehr beeindruckt. Die Gerichte waren lecker und einheimisch. Auf der gesamten Tour wurden wir mit dem Auto von Markt zu Markt gefahren. Ein super Erlebnis, das wir zu 100% weiterempfehlen können.

Es war einfach die beste Tour die ich in Lima hatte! Der Guide Filipe ist einfach super, er macht keine klassischen Touren sondern führt einen wirklich durch die Geschichte Limas in Verbindung mit tollen Essen und super Märkten. Ich habe mich jederzeit wohl gefühlt und kann diese Tour nur jedem empfehlen, der keine klassische Tour wünscht. Man kann offen mit ihm sprechen und ihn wünsche äussern. Er kennt sich super gut aus. Ich werde wenn ich in Lima bin, definitiv nochmal eine Tour bei ihm buchen !
