What You Can Expect

Experience Lima: An Evening at the Larco Museum with Dinner

Dinner at the Larco Museum

Your night out in Lima starts as you are picked up at your hotel in an air-conditioned minivan and whisked off to the Larco Museum for your tour with your knowledgeable guide.

Enter the museum, housed in an 18th-century mansion built on top of a 7th-century pyramid, and discover the treasures of ancient Peru as you walk through the museum’s galleries. The amazing array of pre-Columbian artifacts is sure to impress -- see the renowned collection of more than 50,000 pots, and admire the large displays of ceramics from the Cupisnique, Chimú, Chancay, Nazca and Inca cultures. Marvel at the intricate jewelry and masks, and see the Larco’s renowned Moche portrait vessels – ceramic vessels in the shape of human faces, which are unique to the Moche people who lived from 100 to 800 AD.

After your tour, sit down to an exquisite dinner of Peruvian specialties, which you’ll enjoy in the museum’s restaurant. From this prime spot, enjoy the cozy atmosphere and enjoy views of the Larco’s beautiful gardens. Taste some of Peru's traditional dishes, including Lomo Saltado (tenderloin strips), Causa Limeña (mashed potoato dish) and more!

When dinner is over, you’ll be driven back to your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

First, let me say that Lima's traffic is the worst I have seen in world. There is no Metro, the country is very poor and Lima's traffic is solid stop and go 24x7. Many times, it is 'stop' and crawl. Allow PLENTY of time to get from the cruise terminal to a pickup point. That said...

This tour was amazing! We had a party of 4 and our guide, Gabby. This was her first tour. She was terrific. Her English was fine and her knowledge, without notes or a tablet was unbelievable. She walked us through this closed museum from early Peruvian cultures through the Inca's and Spanish conquest. The tour was educational, quite, very impressive. It was at least an hour, seemed like a long time but a 'good' long time if you know what I mean. Then, dinner.

The restaurant was great. We asked and were seated outside. Food was fine and we ordered items we never had before (did not have to as there were other items available). Excellent.

About 11 PM we had to return to the ship through very heavy traffic (yes, even that late).

In all, this is well worth it.

Wow! Larco is very impressive. Timely pick up and drop off. Good meal. Ended up as last couple at museum after dinner. This felt a little bit awkward at times but the artifacts are so impressive!
