Unfortunately I was sick this day but our tour guide Greta was fantastic, she did everything she could to make the day enjoyable regardless. Greta has a great knowledge of the sites and you could tell she was really passionate about everything discussed. Unfortunately we had to cut the tour short because I was so sick but we had a fantastic time and can’t thank Greta enough.

Excellent guide who was interesting and entertaining. The driver was on time and everything we saw from the Inca archaeology to the Bohemian district of borranco was worth the vist and well explained...would highly recommend this tour and Vista Adventures as the local provider are absolutely excellent

Had a great discussion with the driver on the way to Pachacamac where a phantastic guide showed the whole area - very fascinating there! Only minus: there wasn´t really a tour through Barranco, I saw it only from the window of the car. So the focus was definitely upon Pachacamac (driving there 45 minutes, tour in Pachacamac 2 hours, way back 45 minutes)
