What You Can Expect

Larco Museum and Magic Water Circuit Evening Tour

Water show in Lima

After pickup from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle, start your tour at the Larco Museum, where you’ll learn about the inhabitants of ancient Peru with your knowledgeable guide.

Housed in an 18th-century colonial mansion built on top of a 7th-century pyramid, the museum will open your eyes to the lives of pre-Columbian people through its vast collection of artifacts. See its 50,000-plus pots, as well as ceramics and jewelry, and hear about the displays as you tour the museum galleries with your guide.

Next, head to a local tavern, where you’ll take a break with a delicious Peruvian snack, accompanied by a pisco sour, a Peruvian drink typically made with pisco (grape brandy), lime juice, bitters and an egg white. Toast to your tour, and then head to your next stop – the Magic Water Circuit.

One of the largest water shows in South America, the Magic Water Circuit is an extravaganza of water displays, light, lasers, images and music that must be seen to be believed. It takes place across a complex of several large fountains that shoot water into the air, impressing spectators of all ages.

After your tour, you'll be returned to your Lima hotel.

Suzanne was a great tour guide! She not only did a great job making sure we were having a good time, but she also took advantage of the commute to explain interesting facts about districts, cultural facts, and ancient history.

The Larco Museum, although small when compared with others, it has a very interesting and nicely arranged exhibition. I really liked the way our guide organized our visit, and all her knowledge. Incredible how those civilizations didn't left writen testimonies, but their pottery is so rich tht we are able to know how they lived, what they ate and their sexual practices.

The visit to the Querono bar, is a nice way to relax a bit and take energy, while having a nice Pisco Sour :.

Last but not least, the water circuit. The great thing about the tour is to be able to cut the lin-ups and go directly to the front to the special access. Suzanne suggested going to the second row, to be able to have a better view of the show, it was amazing. I wasn't expecting such a beatiful display of technology and art sound and images. The rest of the fountains are also very nice, and it's the best way to finish your day.

We really enjoyed this tour - our first upon arrival in Lima. Ou guide Miguel Angel was personable, informative and very helpful - we had a private guided tour as we were the only guests signed up that day. Started off with pick up from our hotel in Miraflores (the Marriott) we headed along the coastal road until we arrived at Larco Museum. Beautiful setting, with a garden that looks like it is a postcard. The Museum and especially the permanent collection are simply priceless and take you back in time almost 5,000 years. From there we headed to the El Bolivar hotel - a historic hotel by St. Martin square where we enjoyed our first taste of Pisco Sour and some local snacks before the final adventure at the Water Park. That is really spectacular - the sound and light show chreographed with classical music and traditional peruvian folk dances from the various regions - and all displayed on marvelous water fountains that make it truly magical. Can't recommend this enough! And really appreciated the attention from our guide Miguel Angel with Viajes Pacifico. Professional, courteous and followed up a week later with some additional information on the artifacts we saw at the museum and photos. Muchas Gracias Miguel!

The Larco Museum is a beautiful and most interesting museum that has an amazing amount of artifacts that display the regional and historical aspects of early Peruvian culture. My guide, Gabriella, was extremely knowledgeable about everything and really helped explain everything. I always have a difficult time at museums trying to read the information next to each item but having a guide made it so much better! We later went to one of the oldest taverns in Puebla Libre area of Lima for a pisco sour and sandwich before heading to the magic water circuit. The fountains were beautiful and it was nice to walk around the grounds and see them all.
