My name is Juan Villegas, a Peruvian passionate about reading and a traveler at heart. In 2017 I decided to create the cultural collective RIMAQ to show the historic center of Lima and the Rímac in an authentic and local way. I am an official tourist guide from Peru and a graduate in tourism administration from UNMSM. I love literature and showing the history and present of my capital city, Lima. My tours are historical, literary and with books 😉📚 The Historic Center of Lima is a mix of neighborhoods and cultures. Discover with my tours the real atmosphere of Lima. Discover the culture and stories about this beautiful "city of kings". I invite you to my tours every day from Monday to Friday. 🎁 *There is a waiting time: 10 minutes. *So that you can enjoy our walks more, it is recommended to bring light clothing, hats, sneakers, sunscreen and water. Lima has its special climate 🥰☀️ *Accessibility. Suitable for people with reduced mobility. *Suitable for bringing pets.
