This was a wonderful introductory city tour of Lima, which focused on the major sights and highlights. We took the half-day tour in the afternoon, perfect for our first day in Lima we were able to rest and take it easy in the morning. Although this was a group tour, we ended up being the only tourists, so we had a lot of flexibility. The van was spacious and clean our driver negotiated the traffic well! Elena, our guide, was so AMAZING! We learned so much from her, not just about Lima, but of Peruvian culture and history. Her pride in her country and heritage were very apparent. Elena was a wealth of information, and she covered a range of topics: of course of each site we saw and visited, but also of the different ancient cultures of Peru, Lima weather usually cloudy and foggy for 9 months of the year but little rainfall, the desert landscape along the coast, geology of the Miraflores cliffs and Lima Bay, Peruvian economy mining and exports, with tourism 3, chifa Chinese-Peruvian food, and suggestions for other sights to visit and events to attend in Lima. We took other tours in different cities in Peru - Elena was by far the best guide.
