Felipe was the heart of this tour. I was on a solo trip to Perú so feeling safe and accompanied was of paramount importance. My group was small so that was great for bonding and asking questions. Felipe is so knowledgeable, sensitive to people's needs and having and outstanding English. He is happy to respond to any queries and is so passionate about Lima including its history, food, culture... He also gave us good advice like taking High altitude sickness pill on fight height sickness if we went to Cusco. It worked!! He also gave us advice about food in Perú. He is such a kind soul and meeting him was such a pleasure. I strategically did this tour in my first day in Lima and that was the best decision ever as it kind of set my trip off to a great start with so much advice and notes that I took from Felipe’s narrative and advice. The pick up and drop off service was fantastic particularly considering what it takes to travel solo in a place like Peru. It was amazing to have this safe access to the city while learning so much about it. Gracias Felipe!
