Very relaxed and interesting tour with Bruce, the right amount of information as we walked through parts of historic Lima, and time to pick up some local treats on the way.

I've done a free walking in Lima with someone else first because Bruce was busy. And i was so dissapointed. Quick explanations, talking about inca kola, wasting 15 min in the chocolate museum, or 15 in a "recommendation" for souvenirs, and 25 minutes in a pisco tasting where people push you to buy a lot bottles of alcohol for 3 or 4 times the price. And then, I've decided to book with Bruce. And It was by far, an amazing experience. If you want to experience a great historical tour which really speak to you A LOT, but A LOT, but A LOT of history of Peru, and don't get bored at all on the way, you should contact him. He speaks basic japanese, and It was fun to talk about anime at the end with a couple of big pisco sours. Thank you Bruce!
