The town's huge dimensions and breathtaking views are impressive for any visitor.

Upon arrival you will be told about security and given some basic guidelines to follow while on this tour. Although shanty towns have a reputation, the guide will make you feel 100% safe at all times. While you slowly make your way to the base of the hill, your guide will explain about the community and its developments, as well as about the urbanization projects, politics, religion, etc.

Gradually you will slowly start your journey up the ‘yellow stairs’, pause for pictures of the amazing views of greater Lima, and get a glimpse into homes and local life. Stopping along the way to visit the colorful neighborhood and families, and see first-hand the smiling children of Lima. Meet a local craftsman who produces beautiful hand-made silverware, and perhaps make a purchase or two.
