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 guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Andean Art. I learned a lot. And the food was good.

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.
Really enjoyed this time we had at the Larco. Was my second trip there but learned different aspects of the culture.
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
It was such a lovely night. We were picked up at our hotel and transported to the Larco Museum. To be able to visit the Museum in the evening when it's quiet was priceless. There were just our group 3 persons and two other familes touring the museum at the time. Our guide was just wonderful. She had extensive understanding of the history of history of Peru and Larco Museum and was able to share it without boring us. The Museum is just beautiful, the architecture, artifacts, atmosphere, everything. We had dinner in the courtyard after the tour and boy! it would make for some wedding venue! Food was excellent. All in all, the tour was worth every penny!
This was a great night. We were picked up on this tour and went immediately to the Larco Museum where there is a significant private collection on display. After a very insightful tour from our guide who was incredibly knowledgeable, we had dinner at the café in the museum. It has a great ambience, is quiet and the service/food was great.
Overall the tour is terrific. You get some great cultural understanding of life before the Inca, learn the deep history of Lima and surroundings and see some amazing historical artefacts. The dinner was great and just what we needed with the service being prompt.
I would suggest this as a must do in Lima as it gives you a deeper understanding of how rich the history is outside of the Inca in Peru.
As in the previous reviews, this tour was spectacular! Our guide Daniel met us at the hotel, the drive was great and filled with great conversation and information. We were the only one's on the tour and it was wonderful hearing the history of the Peruvian people from Daniel. He really has a passion for this history! Our dinner aftewards was great and the service was wonderful! Our driver, Jorge, waited for us and drove us back to our hotel! Overall, it was a great experience and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Lima!
This tour was so unique and exclusive. We were the only people in this amazing museum and had a private guide to show us the beautifully preserved pieces. The restaurant setting was in a discretely lit garden with great food wine and service. This was one of the best museum experiences we have ever had. Bought loads of gifts in the museum shop as well, excellent quality.
Beautiful museum with amazing art!! Dinner was delicious in a great setting. From pick up at the hotel, to my tour guide and back was top notch!!!! I recommend this highly.
Amazing museum with a lot of insight on the history of Peru and its civilizations. The dinner was absolutely incredible! Definitely a 5 star dining experience. The food is very delicious, the dining room is very chic and welcoming. The museum grounds are beautiful with greenery and flowers, it's a beautiful evening out!
Knowledgeable guide. Interesting museum. Good meal afterwards.
This was a fantastic night and Susanna our guide was so knowledgeable and gave us so much information. She really knew her stuff and was able to explain everything so clearly. Highly recommend this tour, which was well organised from start to finish and the dinner in the beautiful gardens was very good.

What an amazing tour. We had a wonderful English speaking Lady Guide who showed us around the Museum, which was such a privilege doing it After Hours ... wowee!!! Dinner was absolutely fantastic too in the Private Gardens. Special Evening.
The tour was a great introduction to Peruvian history and the meal was wonderful.!
Our guide was right on time at our hotel to pick us up and was very knowledgeable. The museum is outstanding in both the amount and quality of the collection. We had a wonderful tour with our guide and a delicious dinner in the museum restaurant. Our driver was ready and waiting when we finished dinner and took us right back to the door of our hotel. A wonderful experience and I highly recommend it!
Larco is a must see and of all the Viator trips I took while in Peru the 1 experience.
The museum is a great introduction into the history and archaeology of Peru and should be the first stop of anyone going to Peru.
If nothing else, the restaurant was the best of any of the places I ate in Peru. Fabulous food and beautiful surrounds.
So glad we did this! Only wish we had done it at the beginning of our trip. The way the museum and our guide pulled the early history and cultures together really deepened our understanding. 45,000 artifacts. It was truly amazing. Just wish we had been able to spend more time there
Daniel passionately guided us through the museum with patience and insights. He was as comfortable and professional explaining the highlights of the treasures throughout the museum as he was guiding us through possible explanations of the sculptures in the erotica museum. The dinner at the end of the tour was good, but not spectacular.

Great tour with wonderful guide going to the museum when it was almost empty. Our guide was very knowledgable and walked us through each exhibit explaining the entire time. Then dinner at the onsite restaurant in the beautiful lit garden, a truly memorable experience, thank you Victor and Julio our driver.
A wonderful way to learn about the history and anthropology of Peru. Natalie was a fantastic guide - informative, knowledgeable, and fun. Everything went smoothly from the pick-up at our hotel, guide through the museum and very nice dinner.
