Overview
Experience the highlights of Lima on a private tour of colorful neighborhoods, historic sites, and the Inka Market. Peru’s biggest city can be overwhelming for first-time visitors, but touring Lima with a private guide is a great way to get oriented, covering more ground than you could on your own. Extend your visit with a trip to Kennedy Park (Parque Kennedy), including a stop to purchase lunch at La Lucha Sangucheria Criolla.
