Arturo was awesome. We got to see so much of Lima in just one day. We did it our first afternoon in the city which was perfect because then we could go back to places we wanted to explore more of on our own time.

After twelve years of living and growing up in Lima, my family moved to the rainforest of Peru. From spending my whole life on the coast, the transition was strange, but I quickly discovered and fell in love with the culture, traditions, and food of the jungle. My memories of living in the Iquitos City, right near the Amazon River, are some of the happiest of my childhood. It taught me to be open-minded to new places, and that there’s so much more to the world just waiting to be explored.

After five years in Iquitos, I moved back to Lima to go to college. There, I started studying tourism as a gateway to explore more places. Studying tourism gave me incredible opportunities to travel to cities all over Peru and abroad. My love of Lima and desire to run my own tour company brought me home, and so I started hosting bike tours. After traveling around the world, never did I expect to end up back at home. Yet, I can honestly say I’ve found my true passion, showing travelers all around my city.
