Private Half-Day Tour in Lima City
From US$87.50
Join a private guide for a half-day tour of Lima highlights that include the historic center, a bustling food market, the hip Miraflores neighborhood, and elegant San Isidro. Between unofficial taxis and chaotic public transit, a first-time visit to Lima can be overwhelming, but traveling in the comfort and safety of a private vehicle ensures a worry-free sightseeing trip that begins and ends at your hotel.
What to Expect
Pick up from your hotel followed by sightseeing in Miraflores, Huaca Pucllana (pre-inca site), El Olivar San Isidro, Downtown Lima.
First, stop at San Martin Square before you continue the tour by walking through Union Street, considered the heart of Historical center. Then go see the Main Square, where The Goverment Palace, City Hall, Cathedral, other attractions are located. Visit San Francisco Church, famous for the Catacumbs, and one of the first cemeteries of old Lima city.
Then head back to your hotel. If you would like to stop during the tour for lunch or a snack, it is possible. If you prefer, visit a local food market called Surquillo or San Isidro Market where you can see the variety of Peruvian products and see the richness of this amazing country Peru.
