Clara our guide was lovely, with passion and in depth knowledge of Trujillo and the Chimu people.
Only downside was no port pick up or drop off for cruises, so suggest you pre book a taxi from port to town. It's about 45 mins, and should be 15 to 20 dollars.

This was an interesting tour but the rest of Peru was much more interesting. There was a cultural dance parade in the city and that was much more enjoyable than the tour.
