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.

This museum is beautiful! It's small but just perfect for quick overview of Peru's history and culture. It has plenty of artifacts, and since it's very private at night, and actually there were just the 4 of us in there, we were able to look up close and thoroughly enjoy the guide's explanations. The 3 course dinner was delicious, and the outdoor dining area was so beautiful. The bus that took us to and from our hotel was new and clean, there was a nice driver, and also a great tour guide that went in with us.

This was a wonderful tour. The company picked us up at the hotel. Drove us to Larco. This museum is amazing. But what brought it to life was our tour guide. He was a wealth of information. He told us the history, and interesting facts about the pieces in the museum. Dinner at the Larco was DELICIOUS. This tour is rated a FIVE STAR in our opinon
