Meet your local guide


Vanessa is a native from Lima, Perú. She is a tour guide, momma of three, archaeologist wanna-be and is always on a never ending search for the best ceviche in town! 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!
