Super Guide, Choji - Our guide, Choji was with us over 2 days and we enjoyed our time with him. He took us to sample this rotisserie chicken cooked over coals which was delicious. He is a wealth of information so the walking tours of artsy Barranco and downtown Lima proved most interesting. He must know everyone as he had a quick wave and chat to shop owners along the way! His tours are tailored according to your interests so he intuitively knows what his guests would prefer. Well done, Choji and best wishes to you.

Fun and enjoyable tours in Lima - Choji is an excellent guide to Lima. We toured Barranco with Choji yesterday and Centro Historico today. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Lima and his easy familiarity with this city is fun and infectious. We feel we are privileged to understand real people, real places and real lives here after touring with Choji, not just see the tourist spots. We also shared extremely good foods. Since Choji is friends with everyone on the streets of Lima, we also feel included in the society, not outsiders. Thank you, young friend.

Off the Beaten Track Tour - Richard was a great guide. We did a walking tour in the Baranco area and went into several art galleries. We stopped for a Peruvian lunch. Richard had very good English. We all enjoyed his tour

Book Ivonne - you will be pleased you did ! - This was a lovely way to wander around a very very beautiful part of Lima learning about a whole variety of things : history, crafts, politics, architecture, food, and an excellent lunch recommendation that we would never have found without her. Her English is excellent and she’s a very charming young woman . Thank you for a great afternoon Ivonne !

An interesting and enjoyable introduction to the Barranco barrio - We really enjoyed our time with Richard who showed us around the Barranco barrio. We were two couples. We started by walking through some neighborhoods and found our way to the city square that was bustling with activity on this Sunday morning. A local our art gallery was closed because it was Sunday. Richard improvised by taking us through an area of Barranco where murals done by artist Jade Rivera can be seen. Rivera’s work is found throughout the Barranco barrio where he lives. There is even a small gallery of his work that is not to be missed. Richard was flexible, knowledgeable and responsive to our specific interests modifying the tour to accommodate our curiosities and needs.
