I'm an expert local who is wanting to promote the culture of my beautiful country by teaching visitors about our history and food. My plan is to get visitors to our historic center and get to learn about every day life of Peruvians. We will also visit the catacombs of Lima to learn about our history! I have over 6 years of experience doing this activity. I'm so proud of my culture and I'd like to share this with new friends. I have a certification in Tourism and history, anthropology, archaeology courses which have made me acquire a lot of knowledge about my country. I want you all to be welcome to the land of the Incas and potatoes, be welcome to enjoy Peru!

The host was great and gave an in depth history going back to centuries about Lima and how it became what it is today. The history of various European nations having influence outside of Spain was something I never knew. I would recommend this tour for first time Lima visitors.

We had ATENA as our guide and she was fantastic. Much more professional and knowledgable than most of my past guides for tours like this, and a wonderful personality too. No problem in doing the tour in both English and Spanish. As an added bonus she improved the rest of my novia and my time in Lima by directing us towards areas we returned to for shopping, and educated us on how to stay safe and where. Thanks Atena!

Really nice experience, was so great to see downtown Lima from our local hosts’ perspectives and learn about things we wouldn’t have known ourselves. Also the night element was fun and brought out a more private experience for the catacombs.

Our tour was with Jonathan and he was very informative, knowledgeable, and friendly. It was nice to get a local’s perspective on a wide range of topics. I would definitely recommend this experience to others.

I'm so very glad I booked this tour and would recommend it to absolutely anyone! My guide's name was Felipe and he was fun, extremely helpful and seems to be an absolute expert in his field. He shared so many amazing stories and historical facts. And he went out of his way to accommodate me. The sights themselves were beautiful and visiting the catacombs at night (without any other tourists there even) was a special experience. The communication with Jean Paul was also great. He always promptly replied and made sure I had everything I needed. Do yourself a favor and book this tour. :)

This was a great experience. We had the catacombs and church to ourselves, both of which took on a special quality at night. Jean Paul was super friendly, passed along a good amount of information, and answered any questions our group had. The churro stop was also amazing!
