Know More about this tour

Eight hours 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 observe traditional 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 from various 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.  
From downtown Lima we will head over to the Larco Museum, rated the best in all of Latin America, and placing within the top twenty-five museums in all the world! 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. To break up the day, we will sit down to a delicious lunch surrounded by colorful gardens on the outdoor patio of the museum cafe. Afterwards, we will begin our tour of the museum moving room by room listening to the captivating history of the many pre-incan cultures that once occupied the coasts of modern day Peru. We will be granted access to  browse the museums private store of ceramic antiquities, numbering over 45,000 pieces, a privilege indeed. Finally, we will finish up our tour viewing the intriguing erotic collection (this room can be left out if touring with younger children.) 
As we head out to the district of Miraflores we will take a few minutes to climb the Morro Solar, a stop that you will not find on many itineraries. 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 bit of 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 of modern neighborhoods. We will wrap up our tour visiting the Parque de Amor, an artistic tribute to lovers everywhere, and enjoy the scenic overlooks of the Pacific and it`s vibrant beach life below.
