Lima Tours - Tours in Lima

Lima City Tour
Half day


The best excursion to get to know Lima.

This excursion provides a perfect combination (pre-Hispanic era, colonial period and Modern Lima), that enables the visitor to get acquainted with Lima's complete history.

The Cathedral of Lima Larcomar


We will pick you from your hotel to start the most complete City tour. We will start with a panoramic view from the Huaca Pucllana, a magnificent ceremonial and administrative center of Lima Culture, built in the 4th century AD, and considered by the Incas as ñaupallaqta, a "sacred village".

Then, we will show you the Historical Center. During this tour you will visit many points of interest such as the Main Square (Plaza Mayor) founded in 1535 by Francisco Pizarro, conqueror of Peru, the Government Palace, the City Hall, the Cathedral and the House of El Oidor. You will see other colonial architectural jewels, such as Torre Tagle Palace, a beautiful mansion dating back to the 18th century. We continue the tour with a visit to San Francisco Convent and its catacombs. The construction of San Francisco church was consecrated in 1673. It has stood up to numerous earthquakes, and has a majestic stone facade and an interior with admirably carved choir seats in Nicaraguan cedar, vaults and columns decorated with plastered Moorish style reliefs. The arcades in the convent's cloister (16th century) are decorated with Seville tiles. In the beautiful chapter house there is a collection of paintings of the apostles. The underground galleries and catacombs were discovered in 1951 and are gloomy and impressive, containing the bones and skulls of some 70,000 people buried there when it was the town cemetery during the time of the Viceroys.

The tour continues through the more traditional Residential Areas: El Olivar in San Isidro, with olive trees brought from Spain in the 17th century; Miraflores' Central Park, and Larco Mar, a spot of international thematic attractions which offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean - Larco Mar has become a distinctive symbol of modern Lima. Return to your hotel. End of services.
