    What to Expect
    Following hotel pickup, sink into the soft seats of a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and begin your exciting exploration of the city. Accompanied by your knowledgeable guide, absorb the amorous atmosphere of Parque del Amor while admiring stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Then, head to the inner-city ancient ruin of Huaca Pucilana and discover the ceremonial history of the landmark. 

    Next, venture through the city’s financial district to see towering skyscrapers and modern constructions before arriving at the social center of the city, Plaza Mayor. See, too, the impressive Government Palace and two of Lima’s most prominent and popular attractions; enjoy the sacred ambience and ecclesiastical elegant of the Cathedral of Lima and the Covent of Santo Domingo.  

    Feast upon a delicious buffet lunch in an elegant seaside restaurant; enjoy local specialties made from freshly caught seafood. Revitalized, visit the Larco Museum to immerse yourself in the captivating culture and history of the country. Peruse a plethora of entrancing exhibitions, viewing glittering jewelry, ancient ceramics and more than 50,000 Peruvian pots. 

    Then, venture to a traditional tavern to sample the nation’s most treasured drink, a pisco sour. Treat your taste buds to the sweet tones of the cocktail, created by combining grape brandy with egg whites, sugar syrup and lemon juice. Snack upon freshly made sandwiches before taking a seat at the Magic Water Circuit for your tour’s compelling conclusion. 

    Gaze at the choreographed spurts of the impressive fountains as bright color and melodious music explode onto the scene. Watch lasers dance and images appear during the extravagant spectacle. When the show ends, return to your Lima hotel in your comfortable vehicle.
