Undoubtedly my favorite tour so far this year. Yesterday, for $50, I had a 4-hour private tour with the Community Leader of this town, a sociable woman who chastised me for not knowing more Spanish, and an English speaking guide from a nearby shanty town.
And while I’ve greatly enjoyed Miraflores with its incredible restaurants and scenic ocean views….it was eye opening to see how the majority of Lima, or as the two guides kept insisting, “the real” Lima, lives.
If you go, they highly recommend that you wear colorful clothing because locals find dark colors to be bad luck or a bad omen.
