Quality Verified Registered on June 19, 2023

Hello, my name is Joan Manuel, I am a native of Callao, the main port of Peru. I have a degree in Tourism Administration from the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Dean of America. I am very passionate about history, both of Peru and of the World. One of my great pleasures is Soccer, both practicing it and enjoying it on television. About 5 years ago I started working as a guide and the truth is that it was the first time that I really enjoyed a job to the fullest. I am grateful to have the luck of being able to work on what I like and enjoy.

La pasamos excelente, comimos excelente, conocimos un monton de la historia gastronómica de Peru de la mano de Joan! Super guia, nos respondio todas las preguntas con muy buena onda. Fuimos a lugares muy autoctonos y poco turisticos que es lo que mas queriamos. Súper recomendado para todo el que quiera vivir una experiencia gastronómica excelente
