"Hi, is it a walking tour or a tour by public transportation? What neighbourhood of Lima does it cover? Thanks"

Response from organiser:

It's a walking tour, but in order to approach the tour destinations (districts / neighbourhoods), as Lima is a big city, you'll have to take a local bus or taxi. Once you arrive at the destination (district / neighbourhood) you'll walk touring around it. The neighbourhoods of Lima that our tour covers are two: Barranco and Lima Historical Centre. Hope everything is much clearer now, but if you have any further doubts don't hesitate to contact us that we'll gladly assist you.
