It wasn’t what I had expected but was a good experience once on the bus. The pick up directions were incorrect. There was no NVK cinema ticket office. There was no signage at all for the bus stop. After asking several locals we finally found where to meet. Good thing we initially arrived an hour early. The tour was narrated by an actual person instead of a prerecorded dialogue. However, they used a poor quality speaker system instead of headphones. Could not hear or understand much of the descriptions. Spoken first in Spanish then English. The highlight was an actual off bus tour of the Lima Cathedral.

Tour is very nice, the catacombs are very interesting and definitely worth the visit! The downside is the tour company, that is quite disorganised - the meeting time on the ticket was wrong (they said 2.45 but the booth at the meting point said it was 3.15pm), the bus arrived late, so instead of 3.15 it arrived around 3.30pm. Comentary on the bus was ok but the sound was not very good so it was quite challenging to hear what was being said. Otherwise good tour.
The guide spoke Spanish and English alternately. He was able to convey a lot of historical knowledge and was very easy to understand. The trip was interrupted by two walks, which I really liked. The bus was not red but yellow, but it was the only double-decker bus at the meeting point.
Excellent tour. Great guides. Excellent value for the money. Highly recommend.
The tour guide has very good knowledge of past and present of Lima city
Economic tour to know the most relevant of Barrancos.
