The tour begins upon your arrival at Lima’s International airport.  Once you clear immigration and customs, you will be met by a driver who will transport you to the Hilton Lima Miraflores, located on Lima's Gastronomic Boulevard. There is no better way to start than with a Pisco Sour. You will most likely arrive in the evening, so no activities are planned for this day. However, should you wish to explore the city, I will be happy to recommend a place based on your preferences.
