    I had a great day taking photos all over Lima. Dan, the photo tour guide, is a professional photographer with quite a depth of experience and knowledge of Lima. I was able to approach people with Dan’s assistance and ask if I could take their photos. I also found some nice new little places which make for beautiful photos and angles I wouldn’t have considered myself.

    This was the first time that my husband and I took a walking photo tour. We travel extensively, so we take tons of pictures; and this tour seemed like a perfect fit. And it did not disappoint; we loved it!
    We saw tourist spots and local off the beaten path areas too. We learned a few photo tips and saw various areas of Lima.
    Dan was a great guide. He reached out to me in advance of our tour; and he is knowledgeable and friendly.
    There is so much to see and do in Lima and Peru; after just one day we realized that we will definitely come back and contact Dan to arrange our tours.

    This was the best tour and day of my trip in Peru! Lucky for me and my sister, we had a private tour- no one else in our group. Super personal and detailed towards us! We were able to see the touristy aspects of Lima that are always in everyone’s list, but the best part was Seeing things that most tours don’t go to! Seeing the Market and the landmarks on the top of the mountains were my highlights! Dan was a great guide and ensured everything was in order! Felt very safe and knew we were in knowledgeable hands! Recommend this tour 100%!!

    Amazing Day in Lima
    Nov 2022 • Friends
    Dan is a joy to be around and takes you to places you wouldn’t necessarily visit yourself. We had an absolute blast exploring Lima with him and our driver Cesar. He was also super accommodating – we had a lunch reservation and he worked around our schedule. Would 100% recommend for a fun taste of Lima.

    Dan takes you off the beaten path on a magical tour of Lima with his driver buddy Cesar. If you want to do Lima the local way, don’t think twice. Dan is a fantastic guide with so much knowledge, and excellent photo skills.

    100% Recommended – Andean Photo Expeditions
    Feb 2022
    Absolutely fantastic day exploring Lima with Dan and his team – we visited some amazing places that regular tours do not go to, and felt very safe and comfortable throughout the experience. Thanks to Dan’s pro tips and guidance we were able to get some wonderful photos. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone – not only photographers!! Hope to join Andean Photo Expeditions for more adventures very soon

    Great Way To See and Experience Lima
    Dec 2022
    My group and I spent an excellent day with Dan on his Lima Photo Tour. My group of photographers discovered many places in Lima that would not be on “standard” tourist tours. Dan runs his photo tours very professionally from the moment you contact him to book a tour … to doing the actual tour. He is top notch! Highly recommended.

    Fantastic Photo Tour. A huge thanks to Dan at Andean Photo Expeditions for being such a great guide and teacher during this tour from the moment he picked us up at our hotel to the moment he dropped us off at the end of an outstanding day. The tour was a great overview of Lima and really showed us how beautiful the city is, including some sights you might not find on your typical run-of-the mill tour. Dan managed the time perfectly and made sure we were able to fit in all the things we wanted to see and much more. And as someone who relies on my smartphone to take pictures, I appreciated that he had great tips for me as well as my friends who had photography equipment. If I ever make it back to Peru, I will make sure to book with Andean Photo Expeditions again.

    Arriving for our first time in Lima, we sought a local guide who not only catered to photographers but also would show us the lesser known and emerging spots, places where real Limenos hang out. There’s no one better to do that than Dan and his crew at Andean Photography. He provided a cultural perspective of both its history, politics and current scene . Note: downtown Lima suffers from crazy heavy traffic, so Dan and Cesar’s local knowledge really saved us from a lot of unproductive “stumble around” time. Really important to us: We were able to go into neighborhoods we wouldn’t do on our own. (Lesson: You can go edgier when you’re with someone who knows what would and would not upset the culture while photographing.) BTW- while my husband is a serious DSLR guy, I was using my smartphone and Dan was equally helpful to both of us. When we come back to visit Cuzco, we’re definitely checking in with him again, as we hear he does a great Andes tour as well.
