About the tour

WHY SHOULD WE TAKE YOUR TOUR?

PERU IS A CENTRALIZED COUNTRY AND MOST OF ITS CULTURES DWELS IN LIMA, BESIDES, LIMA WAS EVERSINCE THE 1532 THE EPICENTER OF EXPORTATION AND IMPORTATION OF PRODUCTS FROM EUROPE TO THE NEW WORLD, MAKING OF IT THE CORE OF THE PROCESS OF COLONIZATION.

IT WILL BE UNFARE TO JUST SHOW YOU THE MAIN SQUARE , SOME CHURCHES AROUND, A LITTLE PART OF THE OLD CITY AND A MUSEUM, THAT'S WHY WE DESIGNED A TOUR THAT INTEGRATES THE MOST LOCAL AREAS, CONVERSATIONS THAT GIVES YOU A BETTER APROACH TO WHATS IS THE SOCIOLOGICAL REALITY OF PERU AFTER THE INKAS, COLONIZATION , INDEPENDENCE WAR AND TERRORISM, A WALKING THROUGH MOST OF THE ORIGINAL -NOT RECONSTRUCTED - AREAS OF LIMA IT'S A MUST AND ALSO AN INSIGHT TO THE TOURISTIC AREAS THROUGH THE EYES OF A LOCAL GUIDE MAKES OF THIS TOUR AN EVERYDAY ADVENTURE INSTEAD OF A DAILY JOB.​ THIS IS A TOUR MADE FROM TRAVELLERS TO TRAVELLERS, WE DON'T LIVE IN A LONELY PLANET.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Nothing it didn't happen, i arrived at the bar to meet the guide , he told me it didn;t start for another 15 minutes, i said i'll go and have a coffee and come back in 15 minutes, i did he had left , the women working at the bar said he;d go, no one had turned up, why couldn't he have told me that when he first spoke to me? that it was unlikely the tour woud happen? so it wasn't fun but this can't be posted without a star rating.

This tour showed me many places that dont even exist in tripadvisor or any platform of touristic information, these guys are good, and its true what people say that this is not a free walking tour, most free tours take you to the same old same places that a city tour take you but these guys get places out of the touristic areas to show to them groups, they are always looking for new spots, we went to an underground that was at the backdoor of a supermarket and from there we walked to a hidden art gallery with proyections of other parts of lima, then we went out from the front door of a restaurant, the tour was all the time surpirsing us, and the explanations on politics was sooooooo interesting, again if you take this tour keep all the time in mind that is not a city tour or a free walking tour , its a new concept.

ofcourse they work on tip only basis, most people left 50 soles and others 20 dollars , they were very thankfull that these guys got all these places to take us around, perfect english, perfect tour, perfect guide and full of surprises.

a must to do in lima!
