Attraction details
Owner description: Located in Lima Peru, we are a North American Expat owned and operated 100% legal Taxi Remisse, servicing the Jorge Chaves International Airport (Airport Code "LIM") as well as hotels all over Lima. We service persons who are concerned about their safety and or who do not speak Spanish, and want to get to their Hotel or the Airport reliably, punctually and safely. We take yours and your family's safety seriously. English is our primary used language, no need to wonder what the driver is saying anymore. While there are cheaper options they don't come with the security you can only get from someone who speaks your language.

In a city with more taxis then New York, his company stands out as the most reliable and dependable. Transporte Facil provide the best service I´ve used in Lima whereby each driver pays due care and attention to ensure their customers arrive safely at their location. Their drivers are always on time and will give you the most comfortable journey to wherever you need to go.

We are so happy that our clients, such as yourself actually notice how much effort we put in to make thing go seamlessly for them, Drivers waiting for you upon arrival, no last minute cancellations, upfront pricing and with the petty crime problem that plagues Lima and the Taxis to and from the airport we would rather deal with heavy traffic than put a client at risk.

Walter was waiting for us at the airport with a sign when we arrived. On the roughly 45 minute ride to Miraflores, he gave us a really nice overview of the city, both of things to see and things to be cautious about. He was a good driver- I felt safe the whole time.

Highly recommend.

We try to give our clients a bit of information about the city and in doing so we he to make your stay a little bit more enjoyable. Keep a look out for us as we grow on the world stage we'll be even easier to spot at the airport with or new shirts!

In a city with nearly 333,000 taxis on the road and the complete and utter failure of most of them following the law, my 20 plus years driving in and around NYC prepared me for Lima. There is no one better suited for your safe Transportation needs.

After driving here in Lima for 2 years now I have found a few hidden gems and like to point them out, come back soon and we'll point you in a new direction.

We cannot say enough good things about Walter. This was our first time in Lima and knowing an American driver would be there to greet us was awesome! We stayed in the Miraflores part of the city and the ride was a very affordable $20. Walter has lots of great tips about Lima. It was also easy to book our return trip to the airport. Thank you so much, Walter!

YES!!! an American driver! Born and raised in Massachusetts actually. Back in the US I had a Commercial Drivers License which I was able to keep upon moving to Peru, I can say I am one of a very few legally licensed and insured North American Taxi Drivers in Peru. We hard to to find good English speaking drivers as well.

Once a client reserves a transfer with us we provide a telephone number to contact us should there be any problems, which is so much easier than trying to find a way to contact the apps nowadays.
