We did the 5 Hour day tour of Lima, Peru with the Lima Gourmet Company in April 2014. This tour was GREAT, with tons of amazing bites and drinks. Our tour guide David went above and beyond every step of the way. You could see his passion for Peruvian fare throughout the tour, as he was very informative and seemed like he was having as much fun as we were.
We an organic coffee shop, and a secret garden café where we were given a Lucuma fruit milk-shake, which was out of this world! We visited a local market, and got an opportunity to try various fruits.....and then we stopped by a local fisherman's stand, where we saw his catches for that day. We then went to a restaurant and were given a pisco sour class...where we had an opportunity to make pisco sours, as well as taste various piscos. I definitely got a nice buzz on during this class as we went through a few rounds, which was great! We then went on to a ceviche making class, and had probably some of the freshest ceviche we had in Peru during our trip. We then went to the pre-Incan ruins in Lima, and dined on a few small plates at la Huaca Pucllana -- which was incredible. Great food and drinks! After the tour, we mentioned to David that we were going to check out the Catacombs in Lima, and he graciously gave us a ride there also....
David was awesome....very informative, and a great guy to spend 5 hours with in Lima....we did not get bored at all during this tour....and we left with a LOT of GREAT food in us......The staff was very welcoming, and made sure everyone was having a great time.
I thought that the tour was a little EXPENSIVE -- but eventually I realized that Lima is a pricey city in general....and out of this tour -- we received a lot of great food and drinks...as well as transportation throughout major sites in Lima....so the price really balanced out. We probably would've spent that money on dinner/drinks at any given restaurant in Lima anyway....so this tour is definitely a great way to spend your day and see Lima!!
