Your tour begins with pickup from your central Lima hotel. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, head straight to the first destination of the day — the Larco Museum, home to one of the world’s most impressive displays of pre-Columbian art. Among the many highlights, you’ll get to browse the remarkable gold and silver collection, admire colorful Paracas textiles, and see art, handicrafts, and archaeological finds such as Inca Aribalos, Quipus, and Chimu.
Pause to refuel with a tasty Peruvian-style sandwich at a local tavern, where you’ll also get to try a pisco sour, a classic Peru cocktail, or a non-alcoholic Chicha Morada.
After lunch, continue your tour with a visit to the National Museum of the Archaeology, Anthropology, and History of Peru, Peru’s largest and oldest museum.
Accompanied by your private guide, explore the collection of more than 100,000 artifacts, chronicling the history of Peru’s ancient civilizations. Take in highlights such as a scale model of Machu Picchu; admire archeological finds such as the Raimondi Stele and the Tello Obelisk from Chavin culture; and learn more about Peru’s Nasca, Chancay, Paracas, Chimu, and Pukara cultures.
Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.
