My daughter's birthday was while we were in Lima, and she wanted to visit this museum. The whole experience was great. We were picked up at out hotel, taken to the museum, had a private tour of the exhibits, and dinner at the restaurant. The museum is pretty extensive for a private museum, and the displays are very well done. The restaurant was very nice, a beautiful outdoor setting with excellent food and pisco sours. If you only have time to see one museum, book this experience. You will not regret it.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English well. The objects were interesting. I was disappointed in the dinner. The atmosphere was lovely, but I had the chicken ravioli and it wasn't very good. If I had it to do over again, I'd go see the museum during the day, and skip the dinner.
This was probably our favorite part of Lima. The erotic exhibit of the museum was fascinating and very surprising. The dinner at the museum was fantastic, and the pisco sour with the meal was top notch. We highly recommend this dinner/tour combo!
This museum in Lima is a great preparation for the Peruvian monuments because the guide explains a lot about the artifacts and life during the Inka period. Use a guide because that's how the artifacts come to life! The museum was also the home of its founder and the grounds where dinner is served are magical. I had a great night.
The tour was one of the highlights of an excellent few days in Lima. We came to Peru thinking history was all about the Incas. We soon learned otherwise and having a private tour of the Larco was a perfect walk through history. Our guide was great. She was knowledgable, friendly, and brought the history to life. Eating at the museum -- in a beautiful setting -- was a nice way to end the evening. We weren't sure we were going to find time for the tour given all we hoped to see in Lima but as soon as it began, we were thrilled we had made it part of our visit.
The museum is fantastic the guide was lovely and the meal very tasty. Due to traffic though my visit was very rushed I had about 45 minutes in the museum and the same for dinner. The museum has English commentary everywhere so I'd advise to go it alone without a tour guide ad you could spend a good couple of hours there. On the way back to the hotel I'd a lovely driver though at one stage I misunderstood what he was saying and thought I was being let out to get a taxi the rest of the way. Luckily I had misunderstood and he dropped me back to the hotel. Was overall a good experience but I spent as much time if not more in the van than at the museum. Not the companies fault of course
Our guide was absolutely fantastic. The problem came in that the tour was too short to get through everything. The museum was a blur but the highlights were tantalizing. The big problem came with the dinner. We were only allotted 40 minutes for three courses. Food was so-so and we did not even have our coffee. Recommend a separate tour of the museum and forego the meal. Very disappointed.
