My husband and I had a wonderful day doing a walking tour with Cindy as our guide. She is incredibly knowledgeable and so nice! We can’t recommend her enough. Peruvian Friends did a great job of arranging exactly what we wanted to see and do. I had forgotten to make a reservation for lunch at Larco Museum and Cindy kindly managed to get us a table.

Peruvian Friends arranged for one of their drivers to collect us from the museum after lunch which took the stress out of having to find our way back to our hotel.

I was a little worried when booking about paying via Pay Pal as a deposit for the tour but it worked out fine.

Thank you Peruvian Friends and Cindy for a wonderful introduction to Lima :)

We had a great walking tour of the historic center with Cindy from Peruvian Local Friend. She showed up at our hotel on time and we were able to enjoy the stroll through the old parts of the city and the Visit the Franciscan monastery. She was knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our sometimes weird questions. She also took us to a local food market, a visit we enjoyed very much. This tour can be highly recommended.

We had a 14hr layover in Lima and wanted to get out of the airport. We are so happy we booked this tour, it was so much fun and we learned a lot. Our guide and driver were both so nice and very knowledgeable. If we do end up going back we will use them for sure!

I had the opportunity to see Peru coming back from Brazil. Susie was my tour guide & Alonso
was my driver! Both of them were awesome! I was craving lomo saltado and Susie took me to some local places for food and explored the culture. I can tell she loves her country! She was happy to take pictures of me as well! I’m so glad I stuck with this company. Jose/Sandra (owners) are great at responding to emails in a timely manner, so I definitely appreciate the communication. Definitely worth 5 stars! I’m definitely coming back to Peru & I’m using this company again! ☺️
