Never made the tour. Could not find a stop for pick up. Made many phone calls and no one seemed to know where I could get the bus.

Bad experience

The tour actually was very good however the instructions to get the tickets was a nightmare. I am a Peruvian native who speak fluently both languages and was told to print the vouchers, exchange them at an office in front of the Marriott hotel an larcomar shopping center. We showed up almost 1:30 minute’s early and the show began, nobody knew of the city sightseeing tours in lima(red bus)we asked at the mall, at the Marriott hotel, a tour office, other tour operators and we run around walking, taking taxis because people gave us bad and all kind of info.send us in a wild chase . Finally around 2:30 pm we asked a yellow bus operator if they could do the service and wanted to charge us 150 soles a piece. Luckily there was another gentleman looking for the same tour and he told us that he was emailed information that the tour operator had a different name, it happened to be the same company that wanted to change 150 soles again. But after finally enquiring with that new tour guide we were able to board the bus and to their benefit the tour was fantastic from that point on. The stress we had before boarding the bus I would not recommend to anyone, we run around for two hours without anybody knowing anything about such a tour company. On Viator page they listed a phone number but sounded busy for hours. My family had only one day in Lima and didn’t wanted to waste the only day they had.as a retiring airline captain that travel the world taking tours like this one, fluent in both languages had a hell of a time, I can’t imagine and average tourist doing what we did.

The tour was supposed to be in English but was in Spanish because most of the guest spoke Spanish. The tour was only 45 minutes.

It was ok but I don't fully recommend it. The tour guide was not your typical nice, knowledgable person. She was rather more on the serious side.There were place that I wish we could stop for photos but we did not. Bathoroom services is very limited in Lima so keep that in mind if you drink a lot of water like me and in some places you have to pay.I took this tour last minues as they messed uo my Huacachinas tour date and I wanted to get to know more of Lima as I was only going to be there for 1.5 days. It is a beautful city with lots of murals and you cannot miss the Bridge Sight and its view from Barranco. Miraflores is also pretty but walkable so I recommend for people to take a walking city tour than the bus tour as you miss a lot of places but at the same time they take you to places that would take forever to complete by walking. it all depends on your preference. The Plaza, the churchs and the tombs were interesting enough. I just though that the guide did not provide so much information as other tour guides I had in this trip
