Meet your local guide


Vanessa is a native from Lima, Perú. An archaeologist wanna-be and momma to three, she is always on a never ending search for the best ceviche in town! Vanessa is an official tour guide and has been an ambassador of her city since 2006 with such a passion for history that she married an archeologist. After spending almost 14 years solely in the travel and tourism space, she decided to reinvent the tour guide wheel and go “virtual” with you! While Lima can sometimes be misunderstood by many for its chaos and busyness, it woos you with its incredible cuisine, warm people and stunning archaeological sites. In her tours, you might catch a spectacular sunset in the ocean while seeing surfers waiting for the last waves before going home, spot an ancient archaeological site, or explore amazing Peruvian dishes at some of the city’s popular restaurants. “My biggest interest lies in being an interpreter of my culture and an ambassador of my country to others visiting Peru. I learned many years ago that travelers see the country they visit through the eyes of their tour guide, and to me, that is a powerful reason to give my 100% each time and to love my job,” she says passionately. Join Vanessa on a tour as she takes you to her favorite places in Lima. You won't find a more passionate and enthusiastic guide.

Vanessa has been guiding since Jan 2006

I really enjoyed this sunny tour of Lima, with interesting churches, homes, and of course the beach. My own trip to Lima years ago was under cloudy, misty skies. We chanced on both a couple in wedding attire and a girl's quincinera photography sessions. My only disappointment was a great postcard photo that has the guides finger in it. Some warning would be helpful.
