What You Can Expect

Small Group Lima Discovery Walking Tour

Small Group Lima Discovery Walking Tour

You'll start your Lima city tour by learning a few words in Spanish from your local guide. Journey from the Bolivar hotel out to the City of Kings by walking along the famous Jiron de la Union, the pedestrian avenue linking Plaza San Martin to Plaza de Armas.

Before heading to the market, you'll make a brief stop at the San Pedro de Lima Church. The market is a great way to learn about the local cuisine of Peru. On display is fresh produce from the jungle to the coast and the Altiplano. With local dishes and fresh juices, the central market will have something of interest for everyone!

A trip to Lima isn't complete without stopping at the San Pedro de Lima church. Built in the 17th century and modeled on the Iglesia de Gesu, the church still preserves its original bell and is still an important spiritual center for many Limenos.

After, you'll visit the Monasterio San Francisco, home to the large underground catacombs said to connect the monastery with nearby churches. Finally stop to rest and try a traditional Pisco Sour in the place where it was invented (or at least so they claim!).

The tour concludes in the Plaza de Armas. You're free to continue exploring on your own or your guide can assist you in getting you back to your Lima hotel.

Our guide was so lovely! She even even when the extra mile to make sure we were out of the city before the roads were blocked from a student protest that was due to begin at 5pm. I really enjoyed the tour and we saw all of the main sites of Lima.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

I was the only one so had a personalized tour and felt I was walking with someone who had more than a passing knowledge of both the architecture, the politics and the people. The market with the different fruits and vegetables and the guide's explanation of how to use it was fascinating
