    Estuve con mi familia de visita en Lima durante un par de días, Vanessa fue nuestra guía durante dos días, primero en un recorrido por el centro histórico de la ciudad y luego por las localidades de Miraflores y Barranco. Todo estuvo excelente, su disposición con nosotros fue estupenda, siempre dispuesta a nuestro ritmo, nuestras preguntas y deseos. Tuvimos una visita muy agradable!!!

    Vanessa and her team at Expertizia Travel went above and beyond what we expected!  Vanessa, and her staff were excellent in providing cultural information, quality accommodation, keeping everything organized from group transfers, tours, and more. Vanessa is very welcoming and ensured we were comfortable, safe, and enjoying our time. If you are looking for university educational tours, group tours or just personal travels you have found the right person! Vanessa will tailor any tour to fit the needs of the group and is quick to respond to emails. We visited many companies so our students could see first hand how businesses operate in Peru and these were very quality visits organized by her. Vanessa and her team pay attention to the little details, that are often missed by large companies. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide for our week in Peru with a large group of university students.
