Private Full-Day Best of Lima Tour
From US$120.00
Low Price Guarantee
Seeing all of the top attractions in bustling, sprawling Lima in one day is challenging. This private full-day tour fits in all the top attractions, including the Monastery of San Francisco (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the Larco Museum—entrance fees included. Your guide offers insight into centuries of colonial history as you travel by air-conditioned vehicle through historic Miraflores and take in views from Morro Solar.
What to Expect
Your private guide picks you up at your centrally located Lima hotel to begin your tour in an air-conditioned car or minivan.
Drive past historic squares and ornate churches, and listen as your guide sheds light on Lima’s colorful history. Stroll along grand boulevards for up-close views of the colonial architecture, and explore the UNESCO–listed Monastery of San Francisco. On your 1-hour guided tour of the monastery, visit the second largest library in Latin America and ancient catacombs.
Next, stop at Larco Museum—built atop a seventh-century pyramid and home to a vast collection of pre-Columbian art. Explore the gardens and galleries with your guide.
After lunch (own expense), climb the Morro Solar—a hill by the ocean, offering views over Chorrillos Bay.
Visit the Huaca Pucllana—a pre-Incan pyramid—and perhaps stop at the Inca Market for souvenirs. Then, take in the Parque de Amor on route back to your Lima accommodation.
