She 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! She has spent 14 years dedicated to tourism until 2020 came and almost put to an end to her time in the industry. Now she has decided this is the moment for reinventing herself and is ready to go “virtual” with you! 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!

As always, I enjoyed Vanessa's tour. It was a nice treat to have her hubby along to add a moment of humor. I had no inkling Lima would be so beautiful and interesting. The oceanic information brought back delightful classroom memories too. Thank you, Vanessa!

I love your trips, Vanessa. I love your sense of fun. Nice to have met your husband yesterday ☺️. I do hope to go to Machu Picchu and now I will spend some time in Lima and find some of the places that I've seen on a few of your tours. I'd like one on traveller safety. I have blonde hair and am older. In many, many places we are so visible we are good targets, as are tall travellers.Pickpockets are very clever. Some ideas would be great eg in Italy when in a line don't talk to anyone. Others will join, distract, purse or stuff in back pocket gone! How late to be out in Lima and where, how to get somewhere, get a taxi etc. How friendly to be. Some places, cultures, too much smiling can be considered as encouraging men rather than being pleasant, clothing etc. I saw what they were wearing yesterday and it was hot and humid. I'd wear lighter clothing, but that's not what I saw. Thanks a lot. Bravo love your singing & very nice of you to do that for us.;-) Sue M W
