privat tour guide prices

by jennybenny8

Hi,
Does anyone know someone who is willing to be private tour guide/translator for a few days in Lima/Peru February?
I tried finding the contacts on nhoolb's page but had no luck.
Also, how much would I expect to pay? I saw someone advertising on ebay for US$50/day but was hoping for a bit cheaper.

I went to Peru last year with a company that offers private tours. The guide was excellent, he has a lot of knowledge about what he explained. Maybe you can contact them www.intenseperu.com and ask for this guide. His name is Jose.

I hope this can help you!!!

Travel Tips for Lima

Short Court

by grandmaR

We saw these courts from the bus. They looked a bit like an outdoor basketball court, but with a soccer goal at each end. The guide said it was a local game something like soccer.

In Lima, many places to play soccer, volleyball and basketball are in private clubs.

Another popular sport among Limeans is fronton, a racquet sport similar to squash invented in Lima but I don't think that's what these courts are for. I did see courts that I thought might be for tennis (photos 3 and 4), so maybe they really were fronton courts.

Bones at San Francisco

by SirRichard

When you visit the San Francisco church catacombes you will find these macabre bones circles on the floor. It is not the scenario for a Wes Craven film, just the unusual sense of humour of the person in charge of classify all those bones. Most of them, found after recent restorarions, were ordered in separate spaces, depending on the type of bone, but some were used to make weird designs on the floor...

Be Ready to Bargain

by lelyramires

Well, if your catching taxi cabs in Lima, be ready to bargain!
There is no such thing as a taximeter, prices are agreed with the driver before gtting in the car.
A minimum price paid at the time I was there was $4 soles, for a distance up to 10 blocks.
Of course taxi drivers will try to overcharge you all the time, but, most of the time they'll agree on a fair price.
Be ready to have the first word! Suggest the price you want (as low as you consider to be appropriate for the run), then wait for a reply.
To go from San Isidro to Miraflores, I haven't paid more than 8 soles or less than 5.
Taxis from the hotels are alway much more expensive, and I'd say they cost 3 or 4 times more. But they are safer of course, and if you are on a business trip and the company requires it, they are the only ones which provide receipt.

Puro Curazon

by frankcanfly

Sure, there are many fine restuarants in Lima, but we enjoyed this place the most. You can get Anticuchos (grilled beef hearts) and Cheecha Morada (yummy drink).

We came back here several times during our visit.

Huaca Pucllana

by krissyM

This pyramid right inside the Lima city limits is a short walk within the Miraflores district. Huaca Pullana dates back to 200-700 AD. This is nine centuries before the Incans started building Macchu Picchu. This huge construction, made from small handmade, sun-dried brick, is 22 meters high. It is divided into two areas, for ceremonial and administrative ends. You can visit by guided tours only. The guided tours include a walk around and on the pyramid, a visit through the museum, the small park with native flora and fauna and the craftsmen's house where handicrafts are on exhibit and for sale. Admission is about 5 sols ($1.50 USD) which includes the tour in either English or Spanish.
