I've found InkaPrideTours on instagram and they told me to do a reservation through GuruWalk. So then, I met Bruce. It was an incredible experience! Very crazy streets, people, parks, a lot of alcohol, and Bruce explained me about his personal life related to the underground scene in Lima city. Also, he talked about many topics that we don't learn in a normal city tour. This tour was perfect for me to understand peruvian nightlife in a different way and on a different level. Bruce didn't drink so much. He says he needs to take care of his tourists. At the end, we went for a 24 hours hamburguer in one corner and then he was very nice to drive me to my Airbnb. Arigato <3

Este es el mejor tour para conocer la vida nocturna del centro de Lima. Sin embargo, considero que este recorrido no es para todos los gustos. Tienes que ser una persona muy abierta y estar dispuesta a sentarte en un parque o en la vereda y beber con rockeros, punks, metaleros, y otras tribus urbanas. Es decir, es posible que te ensucies un poco la ropa, y sentir cierto nivel de inseguridad en la calle, pero justamente es esa adrenalina que busca la filosofía del tour. Algo que particularmente me gustó mucho fue que como yo era el único y el primer turista que reserva este tour. Yo le conté a Bruce que aparte del rock, lo que más me gusta es el rock japonés, punk, power metal, k-pop, animes y videojuegos. Así que decidió presentarme gente otaku y k-pop para beber y compartir con ellos un rato. Eso fue algo que me sorprendió mucho porque al menos en mis tiempos, mis amigos otakus o gamers simplemente parábamos en casa mirando animes o jugando Star Craft. Bruce te explica sobre muchos temas, es abierto al debate, beber unos tragos por supuesto, conversar con otros grupos (el guía te ayuda con esto), y también visitar algunos bares y clubs siempre relacionados a la movida underground desde diferentes perspectivas socioculturales y generacionales.
