Pablo fue un guía muy amable. Es bien puntual, sabe mucho sobre la historia de Lima e incluso tiene imágenes para ilustrar su presentación. Nos hizo un recorrido por todo el centro histórico y creo que es la mejor manera de conocer esta parte de Lima. Mis papás y yo quedamos encantados de haber elegido este tour y no puedo más que recomendarla!
