Overview
For the traveler who only has one day to spare in the capital city, this is the perfect tour for you! We'll cover all of the major highlights that Lima has to offer from pre-Incan history and colonial architecture to award winning gastronomy and a privately guided tour of Lima's top attraction, the Larco Museum. With your private guide and transportation this tour not only provides a well planned and conveniently thought-out itinerary but the chance to interact and travel the city with a new local friend.
Highlights
  • See the best of Lima in one day with your private guide
  • Visit the UNESCO–listed Monastery of San Francisco and Larco Museum
  • Panoramic views across Chorrillos Bay from Morro Solar
  • Hassle-free round-trip travel by air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel
What to Expect
Your private guide picks you up at your centrally located Lima hotel to begin your tour in an air-conditioned car or minivan. Drive past historic squares and ornate churches, and listen as your guide sheds light on Lima’s colorful history. Stroll along grand boulevards for up-close views of the colonial architecture, and explore the UNESCO–listed Monastery of San Francisco. On your 1-hour guided tour of the monastery, visit the second largest library in Latin America and ancient catacombs. Next, stop at Larco Museum—built atop a seventh-century pyramid and home to a vast collection of pre-Columbian art. Explore the gardens and galleries with your guide. After lunch (own expense), climb the Morro Solar—a hill by the ocean, offering views over Chorrillos Bay. Visit the Huaca Pucllana—a pre-Incan pyramid—and perhaps stop at the Inca Market for souvenirs. Then, take in the Parque de Amor on route back to your Lima accommodation.
