What You Can Expect

Lima City Sightseeing Tour

Lima City Sightseeing Tour

Take in the many attractions found in the historic seaside city of Lima during this 4-hour 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 where you’ll have the chance to visit “Huaca Pucllana,” a ceremonial site that 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, 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.

We enjoyed our tour although being a little bit jet lagged. I had scheduled it in the afternoon so we had the morning to walk around and mistakenly went and seen some of the things that were on the tour already. But we still enjoyed it. Super cool seeing the catacombs!
Great way to see the city.

Lima is very nice but I was disappointed to see that there are many KFCs and McDonalds there. The point of traveling is to experience different cultures, its traditions and foods. Its waste of time and money to travel 3000 miles to see American versions of McDonalds. Its ok for McDonalds to have franchises in Peru but they should at least have a Peruvian feel and twist to it and have a Peruvian menu. I am sure the locals may appreciate them but as an American, I was raised on McDonalds and there is one on just about every major boulevard in the US and dont care for them while traveling overseas.

I also found it interesting that Lima doesnt not have a storm drain system because it gets less than 0.025 inches of rain per year. Visit Lima and do the hop on and hop off tour to give you the birds eye of the city and check out the Mira Flores area. There are many interesting things to see and the locals are very warm, welcoming and friendly.

There is something special about Peru and I am planning another trip to see other places and ruins there. Ever since I visited, Peru has been on my mind and I think about it every week.

Great tour especially if you don't have time. Even if you do - you learn more on the tour then if you were doing it alone.

With only 1 full day dedicated to seeing Lima on our Peru trip, this trip was absolutely perfect for my friend and I. We were able to see all that Lima has to offer outside of Miraflores. The history in Lima is so interesting and we were so thankful for this tour.

The tour was great and I was picked up at my hotel. We had plenty of time to sight-see and it was very relaxing.
