Take in the many attractions found in the historic seaside city of Lima during this half-day sightseeing excursion. During your trip through this Peruvian capital, known to some as the “City of Kings,” you'll have a chance to view a range of historic architecture, unique cultural sights and admire its gorgeous coastal landscape.
Start your day with either a morning or afternoon departure, receiving a pickup from your Lima hotel in Miraflores, San Isidro, or downtown. The first stop of the day is Lima’s historic city center, an area once known as the capital of the country’s colonial viceroyalty. Head next to the “Love Park,” a beautiful green space along the ocean-influenced by Barcelona architect Gaudí and featuring a sculpture by Peruvian artist Victor Delfín.
Continue to San Isidro, a laid-back residential area of Lima. Drive past Huaca Pucllana for a glimpse of the ceremonial site, which pre-dates the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century. Then head to Lima’s main square, where you’ll see the Municipal and Presidential Palaces, two sprawling structures whose size emphasizes their preeminence in the country’s political life.
Proceed next to the Plaza de Armas to view the Lima Cathedral and stop by the tomb of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro. You’ll also swing by the Santo Domingo Convent, home to a sprawling monastery complex.
Before finishing your Lima city visit, make additional stops at the Museum of Religious Art and the Church of Santo Domingo, the final resting place for the saints San Martin de Porres and Santa Rosa de Lima. At the end of your sightseeing adventure, receive a drop-off back at your Lima hotel.

Main sights of Lima

An perfect tour of the best sights in Lima. Our tour guide Carlos spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. A half day is enough as Lima is not exactly overflowing with things to see, although there are also some good museums.

Excellent trip. Our guide Susanne (I do hope I have spelt that correctly, apologies if not). Was very knowledgable and informative. She loved sharing her love and knowledge of Peru and that showed in everything she shared with us as well as pictures and video on her iPad. Mr Luis our driver confidently navigated the wild roads of Lima getting us safely to each destination and back to our hotel. Many thanks from Las hermanas for a great afternoon.
A perfect tour

Nila was the perfect guide. Arrived on time, spoke clear and knew her subject. Plenty of information without minor details which can make information overload. Driver was good coping with Lima traffic.
okay..Could have been better

Our tour operator picked us up on time and we were excited. However, we did not get all that we paid for. The visit to the Inca tomb listed on our list of entrances were off limits as the tour operator said she was not aware of that. It soured the entire tour from that point on,. I had to ask her on many occasions where and what was the community like. . These tours are a trap, because you book them in anticipation and its a hit or miss. SADLY. I will definitely not recommend VIATOR for searches to my travel group or anyone asking me for tour advice. Somehow , VIATOR as an agency has to take responsibility for crappy tour operators. 2019 I'm out of all Viator tour recommendations.

I canceled my trip because of short of time. It was not clear that no pick up from my hotel and I learned that my flight scheduled one hour earlier. But you did not care and charged my card. So I can not rate the trip only your greedy service.
Tour guide was great but not happy with the vendor!

Our guide was great but not happy with the vendor with not allowing my family change the tour time! Our flight was delayed and we arrived to our hotel at 3am. We had 2 very small children and pick up time was 8:50. I called the vendor that night and sent emails to viator hoping to get a response. Finally, at 7 am I go to the my hotels front desk and they contact them and they said it was not possible and if I didn’t go I wouldn’t get a refund. I asked I am not looking for a refund but want to do the later tour. He said no. The guide arrives and my family was the only people on the tour! I was so pissed. The guide was great but we didn’t enjoy ourselves because we were very tired and my kids were cranky!
An excellent tour by a professional...
