Itinerary
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.

Knowledgeable guide, but would like to see more

The guide was friendly and informative, allowing time for pictures, and a unique experience. The only places visited were Miraflores and the City Centre. It would have been nice to see some of the other districts as well.More

Nice but not too much included

It was thanks to our guide Luis, who told a lot about the history of Lima and interesting facts. However, the time spent in the traffic is extremely long. Willing more time walking and seeing sights closely. Don't consider the trip worth the money.More
