Testimonial Lima Tours
We were happy to work with Lima Tours and would like to thank you for the services provided especially the printing of the conference material, given the very short time allowed. The 4 event assistants were kind and helpful also especially Jocelyn. Isequel was very helpful as he stayed late and came back early the next day to help packing conference kits.
Again all our thanks for your helpful assistance in implementing our conference in Lima, we would be happy to work with Lima Tours in the future.
Who has not heard about the mystical, magical Machu Picchu, the most famous of Inca temples in the world? It firmly put Peru on the map and rightly so. Of course the magic just starts here... we also have the Nazca lines, Saqsayhuaman - a walled Inca treasure, Ollantaytambo and the ancient city of Chan Chan.
Peru has many natural places of beauty, such as Lake Titicaca, the lake on top of the world which we share with Bolivia, the majestic Andes mountains and the amazing Amazon Rainforest. Our capital, Lima, is also known as the city of kings. Very close to the sea, today Lima is a Unesco Heritage site, because of its many colonial buildings in the center.
Our country lends itself well for action packed activities, you can go rafting, biking, skiing, paragliding, exploring the amazing Amazon jungle and our food is wonderful - you must taste our Ceviche, which is one of the nicest dishes you can eat.

"Lima, city of the Kings, located at sea shore, at the mouth of Rímac River (which means the river that talks) was called in the past as the pearl of the Pacific. Touring Lima is easy to see the complexity of Peru: A country with pronounced contrasts that struggles for conjugating the traditions of an agricultural and rural society with the modernity of the industrialization and the market economy. Despite of its lack of economical resources and disorder, as a large city with kind people that keeps cordiality as a mayor value and a great enchant".
