Willian was an amazing guide. Knowledgeable, friendly, and so accommodating. The morning half of my tour ended up being a private tour as I was the only one booked. I never anticipated that as most companies would cancel the tour. Jason was a fantastic driver and I enjoyed the 'new' parts of Lima all on my own exclusive tour. :) After being dropped off at Larcomar for some lunch and enjoying the beautiful seaside views, I was picked up again by Willian and a new driver Robert. Joined by a few others we set off to explore the old historical parts of Lima, with the tour ending after a visit to the infamous catacombs Best way to get a full day taste of all that Lima has to offer. If you book and get Willian, you're in wonderful hands! Muchas gracias!!!
