Taming Guinea Pigs?

Okay so I have 2 male guinea pigs and they are 3 months old. I got them when they were 2 months. I know that guinea pigs run away on instinct but what is the best way to tame them so that they will come to you and enjoy being held?? They are doing well so far: coming out of the cage even if I have my hand in the cage with them.

The best way I have found to tame guinea pigs is to spend loads if time with them speak to them so they get to learn your voice I've owned over 7 at once not including my babies also hand feed them. The less time you spend with them the more unsure of you they become it's the same with most animals the key is time.

Feed guinea pigs on good food and fruits. Feed them with your hands to make them get used to you. Just like human beings guinea pigs need love and respect. Be patient with them. See what others say http://voices.yahoo.com/tips-expert-tame-guinea-pig-and-595041.html.

I am not expert on Guinea pigs but what I did to train my rabbits was put them in a room and I read a book while they climb over me. Give it lots of treats and no sudden movements.
