Lima is a fascinating city full of secrets just waiting for you to discover, and what better way to explore the Peruvian capital than on a private tour with an English-speaking guide in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle?
Lima Private Tour Itinerary
On the morning of your tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel in Lima ready for your private tour around the Peruvian capital. Climb into your comfortable air-conditioned vehicle and set off to your first destination: the elegant Miraflores district. You'll have the opportunity to make a stop here to explore a local market where you'll discover the essential ingredients used in Peru's world-renowned cuisine. Don't miss trying the most exotic foods!
Leaving Miraflores behind, you'll head into the historic heart of the city, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Delve into Peru's recent past thanks to the fascinating explanations of your guide as you admire the beautiful Park of the Exposition; the impressive Neoclassical Palace of Justice and the emblematic Plaza San Martín.
Not far from here, you'll find yourself in the Plaza de Armas, a square considered the birthplace of Lima and an iconic symbol of the city. The large plaza is home to important buildings including the Government Palace, the Archbishop's Palace, the Palace of the Union and the Lima Cathedral, a stunning fusion of Gothic and Baroque architectural styles.
The next stop on your private guided tour of Lima will be the San Francisco Basilica and Convent, a yellow Baroque style church where you'll get to visit the mysterious catacombs, which were rediscovered in 1943 and which are thought to have a number of secret passageways!
Finally, you'll be taken to Lima's most bohemian neighbourhood: Barranco. Explore picturesque streets lined with the colourful façades of Art Deco buildings and visit the famous Bridge of Sighs amongst other landmarks. You'll also see where a number of Peru's leading artists live and work in the district.
At the end of your tour, you'll be dropped back off at your hotel in Lima or at an alternative place in the city centre, if you prefer.
