"This was such an excellent off the beaten path Lima tour and none like any other I've been on before. It was truly a moving experience. I learned so much about the resilience, resourcefulness and goodness of people from the families we met on the tour. There was such an incredible sense of community and feeling of hope that you could feel very strongly." D.S.
"This Lima tour focuses on the positive side of community life. We really enjoyed being able to meet and talk to local people, learn their stories and struggle for better life in this harsh environment. It is a safe and very well organised tour. Lunch at senora Ninfa's house was delicious! Thanks for a very interesting day! Lots of memories and food for thought..." G.R.
A local guide will show us around her neighborhood located on the slopes of the sandy hills of Lima’s outskirts and will show you some of the innovative social and environmental projects that have been set up by a local NGO. The aim of this experience is a genuine intercultural experience since we will visit and interact with several locals. We will enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the local moms’ house and we will visit a few local families that have something special to show you. We will learn more about daily life in this harsh environment but will also get the chance to be introduced to some of the efforts carried out to improve the situation. On some days, we will be able to participate in the workshops of the NGO and see the great work they’re doing with local kids, teenagers or adults!
On different days, we visit different projects and different NGOs. One project focuses for instance on the rights and empowerment of domestic workers, while another focuses on environmental awareness for kids and teenagers.
"I have lots of experience in Lima, Peru and found this organization to have a refreshing, well informed approach. They do an excellent job of exposing people to real life Lima while being encouraging to the locals around them. Rather than just going and gawking...(too often the case), they demonstrate great relationships and care with the locals. You would be wise to choose this group. If you want a glossy tour and the status quo, then there are plenty of other tours to choose from." G.S.
