I came to lima with a group and we had only 1 day to see the highlights. so happy i found alex :)

he kindly helped me to organize our program for whole day, involving 2 guides mariana and adrian, as well as transportation with alejandro. both guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. the fact that mariana is involved in community work in the neighborhoods of barranco and chorillos made me appreciate the tour even more. also we had seviche master class in a family house in chorillos. that was the best presentation of culture ever and at the end we got the most delicious ceviche in my experience.

i'd suggest to explore lima with alex or his friends to everyone. that will be unforgettable :)

The tour started on time and alex was an interesting guy who love what he does and you can feel that vibe at all time. barranco y chorrillos are two districts that people must visit to realize how is actually lima. i learned a lot in the tour and i'm satisfied with this tour. it was more that i expected and definitely recommend it!!!! good luck alex and all what you do.

I've decided to take free walking tour with alex after the hostel receptionist told me that it is great way to spend morning - afternoon and really, it was worth every single moment. i've discovered so much about history of lima that was not explained even on historical tour of lima downtown i did next day with other tourguide (alex don't do lima downtown) it was fun, informative and meaningful tour. something i did not really expected and i had such a pleasant surprise. it was the best tour i have done so far. thank you! :)
