I did this experience with Galia on my first day in Lima. What a wonderful way to be introduced to the city! Honestly, by the end of the experience I felt like I’d met up with an old friend who lived in a new city. We shared great conversation, amazing foods (until close to bursting... come hungry), watched the locals argue politics, dance, and do outdoor comedy, snuck into closing churches and shone flashlights into catacombs. Oh, and walked the city streets, talked trash about conquistadors, and shared a few very tasty and unusual drinks... hello, coca beer... Yeah, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me, and I would recommend it to anyone. First day FTW!

Great experience to get to know Lima and Peru. The tour with Galia was just perfect. We had delicious food and drinks and learned a lot about the peruvian culture and history.

The tour is fine, but too many stops, so the guide has to rush between the stops. The food we tried, was average, and that the end of the tour, we were so stuffed we couldn't try it anymore.

Organization and explanations provided by guide were excellent. The quality of the food was less than expected for the price of the tour.

Great tour. It was nice to have some history mixed in with tasting the food. Our guides gave us tips of things to do and made us feel welcomed.
