This was a first for us — a private tour put together for a group of friends, neighbours, relatives and assorted hangers-on. It was treat to be picked up at the airport and not face the unease that comes when arriving in a strange city at 2 am.
Next morning we were right at it and had three days to explore Lima before heading out. Lots to see — wonderful churches and art, lots of great food, vibrant street life and a very secure environment.
Walking is great, transit is good — definitely an adventure — and Uber is there if you need it. Just mind the traffic. It’s every man for himself and keeping your wits about you is highly recommended.
