What You Can Expect

Iquitos City Sightseeing Tour

Iquitos City Sightseeing Tour

Discover the city of Iquitos, located in the breathtakingly beautiful Peruvian Amazon. On this 2-hour sightseeing tour, get to know the city as your local guide points out main sites and attractions. After pickup from your Iquitos hotel, hop in a comfortable vehicle to begin your tour.

Located on the Amazon River, Iquitos was once a major city during the rubber boom in the late 1900s. Its tropical climate makes for the perfect Amazon adventure. Visit the city's main square, Plaza de Armas, home to several interesting sites including the Iron House (La Casa de Fierro) and Casa de Barro. The Iron House,  designed and built by French architect Gustave Eiffel in 1889, is one of the finest and best-preserved examples of civil architecture in Peru. Also in the main square is Casa de Barro, a two- story building once used as a rubber warehouse by the famous rubber baron Carlos Fermin Fitzcarrald.

Then, walk along the riverfront, known as Malecon Tarapaca. Admire majestic views of the Amazon and the beautiful architecture of the nearby buildings, whose intricate tile decorations were imported from Europe during the rubber boom.

You'll also get the chance to visit the Amazonian Museum, where you’ll enjoy fascinating exhibits of the indigenous peoples of the Amazon Basin. See handmade clothing, authentic villages, artifacts  and more. After visiting the museum, your last stop on the tour is a local craft market, where you'll see locally made crafts, jewelry, pots and baskets. After your tour, you'll be transported back to your Iquitos hotel.
