About
Experience the highlights of Lima on a private tour of colorful neighborhoods, historic sites, and the Inka Market. Peru’s biggest city can be overwhelming for first-time visitors, but touring Lima with a private guide is a great way to get oriented, covering more ground than you could on your own. Extend your visit with a trip to Kennedy Park (Parque Kennedy), including a stop to purchase lunch at La Lucha Sangucheria Criolla.

Good private tour
Aug. 2019
It was nice to have a private tour. Our tour guide was Marcos and was good. We were able to make changes to the intended itinerary because of this. We saw some of the historic parts of Lima and was also able to see the coast part of Lima. Our tour guide also took us to a ceramic store when we asked about one around town.

Custom tour
Apr. 2019 • Couples
We booked this tour and asked for a half hour later pickup time which was honored. Our tour guide was Jorge who was positively enthusiastic and loves what he does. It was as if a friend was showing us around his city. We stopped at about 6 different areas and walked around and the driver would meet up with us at a different area. Well organized. The driver was great in a city where traffic is totally nuts! We chose to stop at La Lucha’s for a sandwich and some chicha morada. Nice experience.

Best Lima Private Tour!
Sep. 2018 • Friends
Our guide picked us up at our hotel with a driver and on-time. We paid the extra $10 for Kennedy Park and La Lucha Restaurant for lunch was delicious.
We didn't expect to see the changing of the guards at the Presidential Palace. We had a little time to shop in that area and our guide broke the language barrier with merchants.
A highlight was Huaca Pucllana pre-Incan ruins.
Christ of the Pacific and the lighted cross were visible up close. We truly enjoyed the views of the Pacific and actually watched a cliff diver (spectacular).
Our guide (Gerardo)was fabulous and went out of his way to help us make the most of the tour. The driver was right there when we left each spot. Not too much walking.
If you want a complete tour of Lima, this 5 hour adventure is the best.
I would certainly use Integrity Tourism & Transportation in the future.

Thank you for your detailed review of our services, we are so happy yo enjoyed your tour with Gerado! We hope that you will contact us again on your next visit, it would be our pleasure to show a bit more of our city, especially those off-the-beaten path spots that are so rarely seen. We appreciate you taking the time to review us, best wishes.

The Perfect Lima Snapshot
Aug. 2018 • Couples
We took this tour with Gerardo, a truly impressive guide, on our final day in Peru and could not be more thankful that we did. I still can't believe how much we were able to see in such a short amount of time, from Huaca Pucllana in Miraflores to the stunning views of Lima from Morro Solar (and the monument to the unknown soldier). My favorite was exploring the historic Centre of Lima: seeing Plaza San Martin (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and then strolling toward Plaza de Armas while learning about the significance of the intricate balconies above, mostly built in Colonial period. We arrived at the Government Palace in time to see the Changing of the Guard. It was such a treat to watch this ceremony while listening to Gerardo explain some of the country's fascinating history (his depth of knowledge impressed us repeatedly throughout the entire tour). We learned so much in such a short time. Throughout the entire day, our driver, Coqui, was kind, calm and truly a magician when it came to navigating Lima's intense traffic in the company's immaculate van. I can't think of a better way to see the highlights and get a memorable overview of Peru's capital. We'll be wholeheartedly singing Integrity's praises to every friend who visits Lima from here on out.

Warmest regards from all of us.

Fantastic Snapshot of Lima
Apr. 2018 • Couples
We had a wonderful time on this tour, 30th April, and learnt so much from our excellent guide, Sergio. He went out of his way to show us as much as he could and give us a lot of information. We didn't ever feel rushed but somehow covered all the relevant landmarks and more. Sergio was friendly and professional and it was a perfect start to our time in Peru. Don't forget to add on the sandwich option as the food was delicious!

What can we say, Sergio is truly a great host and guide, we are glad that you enjoyed his company. Your tour, the Highlights of Lima, is designed to give visitors that perfect overview while still keeping it at a half day. We agree, the lunch add-on at La Lucha is a must! Thank you for taking the time to review us, we all appreciate it!

Expedited overview of Lima
Apr. 2018 • Couples
Lima is a very large city and traffic is a big issue. We had one day to spend in Lima while visiting on a cruise ship. We were traveling as a group of six and wanted to see as much as we could in a day’s time. Integrity Tourism and our guide, Maricarmen, provided exactly that! We spent the day in the historic as well as newer districts, had plenty of time to walk and experience the essence of Lima, and were given much information about the history and current state of affairs in the region.. The van was immaculate and our driver a magician in this challenging traffic! Many thanks to Integrity Tourism. I highly recommend using their services!

The essence of Lima is exactly what we had in mind when we designed our "Best of Lima" tour. It seems like quite a feat to capture the heart and feel of a city in to one-day but it seems that we have done just that, thank you for pointing this out! Our Coqui truly is a magician when it comes to Lima's traffic, there is no other just like him, again thank you for mentioning that! A big thank you for your review on behalf of our entire team here at Integrity!

Time and Money Well Spent!
The Highlights of Lima tour offered by Integrity Tourism provided us an awesome, historic one-day overview of Lima. Our tour guide, Gaby, spoke excellent English and was the perfect ambassador of Lima and Peru! She was personable and knowledgeable of the history, culture and significance of the sites we visited. The driver did an amazing job of navigating the city in his immaculate car with great air conditioning! This tour was time and money well spent.

A wonderful tour!
We had one day in the city and wanted to see as much as we could of Lima. Sergio and the driver collected us from our hotel in a comfortable minibus. We headed straight for the historic centre of Lima where we walked or were driven around the top sights. Sergio spoke perfect English and he gave us a fascinating commentary. We stopped for lunch at Lucha where we sandwiches to die for! I absolutely recommend that you take this option (try the fries too and the purple corn drink!) We took lunch on the go so that we had time to visit the statue of Jesus outside town. When Sergio discovered that we were birdwatchers he took us to the fish market so we could see the enormous Peruvian Pelican (he even bought a fish to tempt them closer!)
We learned so much of Peruvian life and history in these few hours.

Thank you again for sharing, we appreciate you taking the time to do so and for your preference in choosing Integrity while here in Lima.
