What you'll do

This is a UNIQUE anthropologist experience, you will have the opportunity to be part of the daily activities of locals that live in the real Lima, it is a rich cultural experience you will always remember!

On this walking tour you will get the opportunity to see how a large majority of Lima's population truly lives in happines ambience and community system. At Haku Tours, we want you to see 'the real' Lima.
While you slowly make your way to the base of the hill, our guide will explain a little about the community and its developments, the urbanization projects, politics, religion and how Haku helps in the area. Gradually, you will begin your journey up the famouse "yellow stairs", pause for a few pictures of the amazing views in greater Lima, get a glimpse into homes, and interact with neighbors and families we meet during this local life experience.
During the tour, we will also visit a local daycare center, and the friendly families from this nice community. The town's huge dimensions and breathtaking views are impressive for any visitor. Remember this tour is about to know people, who will share with you their culture, traditions, believes and thoughts.
Other things to note
If we can visit the Shanty town communities is because we have asked permission to the local leaders (they are 18 leaders and 15 of them are women, our Shanty tows are run by women).

This tour is perfect to see real Lima besides the touristic quarters. It is absolutely impressive to walk through these areas and see how the locals live. We had plenty of very friendly interaction with locals. Our guide was extremly nice and you could feel that he loves his job. We felt very comfortable anytime. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lima.

This is an off the beaten path to get acquainted with a different side of Lima. It is a unique opportunity to get to know residents of Lima whom are often forgotten by the majority. Jose the tour guide showed genuine care and concern towards those who are unluckier than us and told stories of them that everyone ought to know. I invite you to this tour to see the beauty of human endurance and creativity in the shanty town.

Could not have been a better way to take it all in. Zuly made sure i knew my guide and pickup info the night before which was nice. Edwin was a total delight and made me feel extremely comfortable in a very strange land. He was so courteous and kind to everyone he met, it was really nice to be around. The sheer positivity that emanates from a neighborhood with such economic struggles was heart warming and a lesson to be learned about comminity and social consciousness. Bravo! Thoroughly inspired.
