We, myself and my wife spent all day with Victor. It was very informative and very interesting day. Victor very knowledgeable and nice person. We saw a lot of hidden gems of Lima that only can be known by locals. In addition, we tried fabulous Peruvian food which we would not be able to find without Victor. We highly recommend Victor to anyone who want to have an unforgettable experience in Lima.

I've found InkaPrideTours on instagram and they told me to do a reservation through GuruWalk. So then, I met Bruce. It was an incredible experience! Very crazy streets, people, parks, a lot of alcohol, and Bruce explained me about his personal life related to the underground scene in Lima city. Also, he talked about many topics that we don't learn in a normal city tour. This tour was perfect for me to understand peruvian nightlife in a different way and on a different level. Bruce didn't drink so much. He says he needs to take care of his tourists. At the end, we went for a 24 hours hamburguer in one corner and then he was very nice to drive me to my Airbnb. Arigato <3

Luckily for me this ended up being a private tour! Manuel's English is serviceable, but in the end we did the tour in Spanish since I speak that as well. He had a great mix of historical facts, cultural insights, and general tourist tips like what to eat and which areas are safe. He even had some visual aids with him with maps at different points during Peru's history.

On the whole tour you realize that Bruce knows the city well. Barranco for me was the most beautiful district of Lima and Bruce showed me excellent places there and explained backround knoledge. Bruce himself lived for a longer time in Barranco and knows a lot of bars really good. He also knows many graffitis and knows a lot about it. After the Tour through the historic center I was not disappointed on this tour! Thank you Bruce!!!

Not your “typical” history tour. Bruce shows you the real city with its flavors, pain and laughter, history and music. And yes, come hungry as there will be lots of local food from local vendors. You would never get an experience like this. Be a local for a day. Breathe the city in. Feel it with every fibre of your body.

Bruce was the perfect Guide. He explained everything with passion. He gave us advice for good food which we tried directly. He focused on our interess and behaved more like a friend than a guide. We loved and enjoyed the tour and we would recommend to everybody making the Freewalking with Bruce.

Best things to do and see in Lima

Lima is the capital of Peru and is one of the most surprising cities in this country even though it’s not the first choice of most tourists. The city doesn’t have all the attractive cultural attributes that Nazca or Cusco have to offer, but there is a large number of monuments that are worth visiting, along with its gastronomy with a wide range of references from Creole and Peruvian cuisine. Public transport will let you get around the city with ease, even if they aren’t the most modern bus lines. 


If you are going to visit Lima, we recommend that you get a guruwalk and discover the city with a local guide who can show you the local culture and history and get you the most out of your time there. There are many routes that will show you those must-see spots that you can’t leave Lima without seeing, such as La Plaza de Armas and the Historic Down Town with the city Cathedral in the middle of the square, and the Casa de la Literatura Peruana on the outskirts. Another iconic place you have to see in Lima is San Francisco de Lima’s Basilica, and while you’re at it, go to the park Parque del Amor to get some of its beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean, or just walk by the Barranco Neighborhood. Last but not least, you should also check out the market Mercado de Surquillo, to get something tasty!


Other travelers who have already done a free walking tour in Lima in the morning, afternoon or night have left their user reviews about their tour guide and the route they did on the guruwalk page. Other cities that might be of interest for you to do a guruwalk are Medellín, or Arequipa.
