Extend your visit with a trip to Kennedy Park (Parque Kennedy), including a stop to purchase lunch at La Lucha Sangucheria Criolla.

We had a wonderful half day tour of Lima that included all the highlights of this city. We felt like we got a good sampling of the different neighborhoods. Nataly, our guide, and Koky, our driver were both knowledgeable friendly and excellent English.

We only had one weekend so we paired this on one day with a gastronomy tour on the second day and it really worked out well. Our guide was super nice, very knowledgeable, and the whole trip was quite well organized. We saw many things, got given a lot of tips on how to maximize our Lima experience, all in all a great experience.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

This was the absolute BEST EXPERIENCE EVER. If you are coming to Peru and want to see the city and districts of Lima, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND everyone take this tour. We had Natty(Natyle) and Jorge (Coqui) as our guides for our first time trip here in Peru. They were such an awesome team, we’re so kind and SO FUNNY! We couldn’t believe how much fun we had together and how awesome the day turned out to be! 100000/10 recommend and DEFINITELY ASK FOR THEM! I promise you won’t be disappointed and they are so educated and funny! Thank you so much for the best day ever and for taking a billion photos of us! Can’t wait to come back to visit and do another tour with them!
