    Amazing hospitality in Lima

    Marco was quite simply the best host I had during my time in Peru - Very helpful with everything, sharing his knowledge of the city, loaning bus cards, mixing drinks and making his guests feel so comfortable. The apartment has been renovated to hotel standard, but still feels like home. Only minor gripe is the location, which is not central (about 6 blocks to nearest metrobus station, bit less to local busses), but this can also be a good thing for your sleep: the area is pretty quiet.

    Our trip started quite poorly. We missed our connecting train to the airport and had no seat in the aircraft until a few minutes before departure. Eventually, we reached Lima without any other distrubances. Our taxi driver didn't seem to know where our hostel is and he tried to convince us to stay at another place at first. But we assured him to …

    The bus journey from Piura to Lima was amazing. As it was a 15 hour trip we upgraded to VIP. The seats were enormous leather jobbies. Personal tv screens where you could select your own movies, wifi, blankets and pillows. Also meal service. When we got into lima at 6:30am we didn't want to get off! Lima is very clean, modern day city. We only had a day there, as we flew to Cusco the next day. Unfortunately ...

    ... our time in Lima. It was a very middle class population, at least it was around all the places we saw during our time there.

    From an architectural point of view the Spanish influence is very obvious in many of the old buildings and Churches.

    Traffic however reminded us of Manila. Bumper to bumper with crazy vehicles going everywhere and over crowded busses. On our first day we spent the morning walking around our area and ...

    ... turned out to be much better than anticipated!

    The next morning we were rudely awoken at the crack of dawn to the sound of men grunting and the chinking of metal hitting metal... adjusting from my deep peaceful dream back to reality it suddenly became apparent there was a busy open air gym just outside our window. So much for that lie in!

    ... on land and underwater but also to get a glimpse of our world evolved from its origin. The last cruise was very well organised and deserve special praise. The quality of the service and guides make all the difference. It was like being at university and studying geology, biology and nature. The children behaved superbly, listened to the explanations and looked for animals when snorkeling. For them as well it’s been a fantastic education. So to Galapagos Travel (tour ...
