I couldn't have planned a better tour!

We didn't like any of the cruise ship offerings, so we took this one. They met us with a sign just outside the cruise terminal, and gave us a wonderful set of things to see, capped by a lunch in a nice restaurant on the side of the square. Be sure to order a Pisco Sour as your beverage.

Lima city tour

We had a great tour around Lima city. Our guide Vilko, was excellent, his English was perfect and his knowledge of the city wide and varied, it was like a friend guiding you. The only downside was the 45 minute drive to get into the city, but that’s what you have to do due to the increased security measures. Lima has increased its tourist police and regular police to meet the needs. The vehicle used by the tour company was excellent, fully air conditioned and comfortable. All in all we had an excellent tour and would recommend it.

Great "off boat" tour!
, Jan 2020
We usually look for local tours that are similar to those offered by cruise ships, but have smaller groups and cost less. This tour did not disappoint! We were met promptly by our guide and our driver. A second guide was along which was helpful in keeping the group together when walking through the downtown area of Lima. The van was new, bottled water was provided and our guide was knowledgeable and well spoken. As for this particular tour, it provided a great look at some important government buildings and two fabulous churches. We were taken to a local restaurant for lunch (order from the menu, spend as much or as little as you like) and it was a good chance to sample local cuisine. Most importantly bathroom breaks were well spaced and very clean! Five stars for Discover Lima!
Not great
, Dec 2019
Not worth the money. The place of interest we didn’t go at all. He gave us little time in the interesting places and a lot of time for lunch in a expensive but bad food. Didn’t leave the cruise till 10:00 a.m and started back at 3:00p.m.. tour guide was not knowledgeable.
A great tour with all the highlights of beautiful Lima

Our very knowledgeable guide Saul provided so much historical information and was a great resource about specific buildings in the city. Even the restaurant stop was great. I would highly recommend this tour.
