What to expect

Take a journey through the 3 main periods of Lima’s history on a half-day sightseeing tour, with round-trip transportation from hotels in the Miraflores and San Isidro districts.

You will start your tour with a panoramic view of the Pucllana Pyramid, a magnificent ceremonial and archeological center built in the 4th century AD, and considered a sacred village by the Incas.

Explore the city’s colonial heart in the historic city center, and see handsome Spanish architecture along the Paseo de la República and in San Martin Square. Admire the baroque Archibishop's Palace, and the looming 16th-century Cathedral in Plaza Mayor.

Visit the Treasures of Peru Collection at the Banco Central de Reserva Museum, where gold, ceramics, textiles, and many other objects of various pre-Columbian cultures are on display. Continue to San Francisco Convent to see the largest collection of religious art in America.

A real highlight will be a tour of the underground catacombs linking the Cathedral of Lima and Monastery of San Francisco. Then, switch gear and experience Lima as it is lived today in residential areas, such as El Olivar, San Isidro, Miraflores, and Larcomar.
