Leaving the Old World for the new. Join Vanessa as she peels back the layers of the extravagant, lavish, and luxurious lives that European immigrants to Barranco, Lima lived. We will explore the mixed stories of fortune and failure, and the importance of preserving the “bohemian” zone of Lima.
Vanessa is a professional tour guide and ambassador of her city since 2006, and a virtual tour guide since 2020. With over 15 years of experience guiding is still her passion and delivering a great service in every tour is her compromise with you. Take a virtual experience of Lima with her and be surprised by a city with more than 2000 years of history, impressive architecture, one of the best cuisines in the world, warm people, and have a unique and unforgettable experience with a cultural ambassador born and raced in the capital of Perú.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Lima with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Lima. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.

Vanessa was incredible! She's so sweet and answers all your questions. Has a lot practical information in addition to the historical details of the neighborhood. Her English is coherent and the quality of the video/audio was perfect. I had a great time in Barranco. Thanks!
