What people are saying about Chorrillos

It was simply the best tour I had in Lima! The guide Filipe is just great, he doesn't do any classic tours but really leads you through the history of Lima in connection with great food and great markets. I felt comfortable at all times and can only recommend this tour to anyone who does not want a classic tour. You can talk to him openly and express your wishes. He knows his way around very well. I'll definitely book a tour with him again when I'm in Lima!

It was amazing! The guide Lucas and driver Kenyi they do together a great team to satisfy your tour, over your expectations !
