Hola! My name is Milagros. I'm an official tour guide in Lima since 2010. I studied Art, which equipped me with better comprehension and knowledge of different artistic treasures that Lima has. Currently, I am studying Sustainable Tourism. My purpose is to share my understanding of our old indigenous temples in regular touristic itineraries for foreigners and locals.

Tour Reviews

    We enjoyed the tour of Lima's historic area. The interesting manner in which Milagros explained about the historical buildings as well as the Lima's history made it interesting. She conducted the tour in an unhurried manner stopping to answer our questions at times. Those interested in history, esp. in seeing and knowing about World Heritage sites would find this tour very interesting. We would rate Milagros very highly as our tour guide.
