Know More about this tour

Eighthours is not a lot of time to visit such an immense city as Lima, but we feel we've created the perfect one-day highlight tour. We'll begin with a visit to historic Lima where you will observetraditional plazas, beautifully ornate churches and the stately presidential palace. You will have a chance to walk along the colonial streets admiring the architecture of buildings fromvarious periods in history, including the San Francisco Convent, a World Heritage UNESCO site. Once inside you will appreciate the one hour guided tour featuring the second largest library in Latin America with over 25,000 ancient texts and quite a sizable collection of religious artwork. Before finishing the tour of the convent we will descend deep below the centuries old church and explore the catacombs that lie beneath.

Fromdowntown Lima we will head over toTripAdvisor's top rated attraction, theLarco Museum. Built a top a seventh century pyramid, this vice-royal mansion is a site to see with its beautifully cared for gardens; you will find yourself snapping photos of the grounds as much so as the relics inside. For this portion of thetour we will be joined by an additional guide to ensure we receive the richest narration possible of this private collection passed on from father to son. The one and a half hour tour consists of captivating history, a45,000 piece store of antiquitiesand anintriguing erotic collection (this room can be left out if touring with younger children.) Afterwards we will have time to enjoy a delicious lunch surrounded by colorfulgardenson the outdoor patio of the museum cafe.

This large ocean side hill, carved by the Pacific Ocean below, is home to the "Cristo Blanco" statue and provides us with a great view of the Chorrillos Bay as well as an impressive view of the coastline and surrounding shanty towns below. Here your local guide will share with you the history of battles fought on this location and a bitof detail about the cultural divide that exists in Lima.

Our last stop will bring us to the district of Miraflores where we will make a short visit to the Huaca Pucllana, an enormous pre-Incan pyramid set against the back-drop ofmodern neighborhoods. If desired, we can make a stop by the Inca Market for achance to pick upmemorable treasures and souvenirs with your local guide helping you in your search.
