Description

For the traveler who only has a few hours to spare, this tour, coined "The Perfect Snapshot of Lima" by previous guests, covers it all. From colonial Lima, to the modern district of Miraflores, with it's beautiful parks and amazing views of the Pacific Ocean to glimpses of "shanty towns", you won't believe how much ground we will cover. We'll even squeeze in a half an hour visit to the largest handcraft and souvenir market in Lima, just in case you've forgotten something for loved ones back home (and if not we will find something of interest show you for sure.) If you can give us an additional hour of your time, we can add on a stop for the most delicious local sandwiches and exotic juices to make your half day or lay over tour just perfect!

Five hours is not a lot of time to visit such an immense city as Lima, but we feel we've created a tour that does in fact do it justice. We'll cover the two most visited areas beginning with the Colonial City Center. From the traditional plazas to the beautifully ornate churches, you will have a chance to walk these streets and admire the architecture of buildings from various periods in history, including the San Francisco Convent, a World Heritage UNESCO site.

As we head out to the district of Miraflores we will take a minute to visit the Huaca Pucllana, an enormous pre-Incan pyramid set against the back-drop of modern neighborhoods. Next we'll walk through the Inca Market in search of memorable treasures and souvenirs with your guide helping you each step of he way. From the market we'll visit other favorite spots such as the Park of Love, a tribute to lovers everywhere, and enjoy the scenic overlooks of the Pacific and it`s vibrant beach life below.

Our last stop is one that you will not find on many itineraries but we feel it gives a fuller view of Lima. The Morro Solar is a large hill overlooking the Chorrillos Bay and allows for great views of the coastline as well as the shanty towns below. Here your local guide will share with you the history of battles fought on this location and a bit of detail about the cultural divide that exists in Lima.

If you would like to break up the tour by adding on another hour for the most delicious Peruvian sandwiches and exotic juices, don't forget to select the La Lucha & Kennedy Park option!
