    This was a very unfortunate choice and a waste of $160 US Pros: 1. The Brazilian tour guide (I can’t remember his name) was very good and entertaining. 2. He gave a market tour and made pisco sours with us after the class. Cons: 1. The class takes place in a small hostel

    Dear Ryan, Thanks for writing a review. But you did not want to do anything so nobody will force you to cook if you do not want. If you were dissapointed with the kitchen it is not our problem. We have a decent kitchen for 5 people. And we also use the dinning room to work. We have no idea how big the kitchens are in Canada but our kitchen is bigger and well equipped than other houses in Peru. If you did not like the food why did you request to go? So you shoul be more condescendent with your review and you must being thankful that we did not charge you extra because of your last minute booking on holiday (Easter). Our chef Amelia was not working but Dora and Samuel did their best in order taht you enjoy your tour. Good vibes! Regards, Lima City Tours

    Our adventure got off to a slow start because our guide, Samuel, had limited English. He is Brazilian and had only been in Lima for two months so he was a little unsure of his Spanish, too. Once we established that things got better. I was able to use my Spanish and then

    Hello there, Thanks a lot for writing us a really nice review. We normally do private torus to give a personalised service and not be in rush because we manage the time and our customers just relax and enjoy. But as you said we got around 25 tours from the ship that day and your agent joined you in different groups so all our tour guides were full. Eventhough it is nice to hear that you have enjoyed the day cooking and exploring the city. It is ncie that you recommend us. Thanks a lot. Regards, Lima City Tours

    Dear Emily, Thanks a lot for writing us a really nice review. It was great to meet your family and you. Actually for our cooking class we also drop our customers off at the hotel and Dina proposed you that but there was a missunderstood and you prefered to walk because your hotel was only 8 blocks far. Eventhough we are so glad that you have enjoyed all our services. Enjoy all your trip. Keep in touch. Regards, Lima City Tours

    Jhony was great at communicating with us and helping guide us to a tour that included all the things we wanted. My sister and I did a private tour so we could hit everything we wanted. We were met promptly at 2 pm by Alex our driver at our hotel and then dropped to downtown
