Know More about this tour

Meet your tour guide in the lobby of your hotel and set off on a half-day private tour of Lima. Peru's capital city has over 2,000 years of history and your tour guide will take you to the most important areas.
You'll first stop at the San Francisco Convent, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the center of historic Lima. This was the first major church to be built in Lima and also houses a library which holds some of Peru's oldest and rarest books. Located below the church are the catacombs, Lima's first cemetery and the final resting place for an estimated 70,000 people.
Next you'll meet the owners of the Casa Luna, or Moon House, where youll see their unique collection of Nativity scenes. Traditionally from Spain, these elaborate dioramas show tiny human figurines, models of animals from the area and images of Christian saints and pre-Columbian deities.
Your last stop will be in Miraflores for shopping in the Mercado Indio (Indian Market). Browse and shop for colorful Peruvian handmade crafts and other local goods such as shawls, hand-carved wooden artifacts, alpaca throws and solid silver. Then, head back on a relaxing ride back to your Lima hotel.

  • Excellent!

  • Maribel (sp'g/) is an excellent tour guide and real nice person. We saw as lot in 4 hours and learned a lot.
    She was very accommodating since we did not want the market visit part of the tour so she showed us some residential areas instead. Liz and Dave

  • Two of us and the guide. We even toured a private home in Lima.

  • Excellent could have even been longer. Only visited one market the Inca was across the street

  • Great trip.

  • Guide left us to tour Indian Market on our own. Would have appreciated her explaining about the crafts we were seeing. We enjoyed immensely the collection of nativity scenes at the private home.

  • We enjoyed our tour very much. Our guide was charming. He had lots of stories and anedotes to tell about what we were seeing. Our favorite part was the nativity scene collection. It was just wonderful. All in all the tour was a total success.
