Traveler Reviews


A "Must Tour" in Lima

This tour couldn't be more immersive, educational and thought provoking. This humbling experience, gets to the heart of humanity. As you enter into one of the five Shanty Towns in Lima (population approx. 2 million) and meet the people who call this area their home, you experience the true sense of what community is all about. We were greeted by friendly community residents and leaders, more than willing to invite visitors into their homes, or to share the important projects that that are taking place in their area. This an opportunity not to be missed. We were lucky enough to have Edwin be our personal guide. We wish we had more time in Lima to further explore local life experiences by Haku Tours!
