This was a great tour, really gave me a peep behind the regular tourist scene. I loved visiting the market with Paula and it was fun to catch the bus out to her Mum's house. They were just so welcoming and I learnt a lot about real Peruvian cooking in the afternoon

Milagros (may be misspelled) was an excellent tour guide. Informed about sites, history, and city center. Especially enjoyed her upbeat attitude and willingness to endure endless questions. Tour was around city center and well worth the modest cost. Ended with an excellent sour pisco.

We had an amazing time on this tour! Paula took us to a local market and then to her mother's house. They were incredibly kind and welcoming. We learned how to cook local dishes, like ceviche, shared some laughs and had a great feed. We would highly recommend this experience to everyone! This was our favourite part of Lima.
