What You Can Expect

Lima City Sightseeing Tour

Lima City Sightseeing Tour

Take in the many attractions found in the historic seaside city of Lima during this 4-hour sightseeing excursion. During your trip through this Peruvian capital, known to some as the “City of Kings,” you'll have a chance to view a range of historic architecture, unique cultural sights and admire its gorgeous coastal landscape.

Start your day with either a morning or afternoon departure, receiving a pickup from your Lima hotel in Miraflores, San Isidro or downtown. The first stop of the day is Lima’s historic city center, an area once known as the capital of the country’s colonial viceroyalty. Head next to the “Love Park,” a beautiful green space along the ocean influenced by Barcelona architect Gaudí and featuring a sculpture by Peruvian artist Victor Delfín.

Continue to San Isidro, a laid-back residential area of Lima where you’ll have the chance to visit “Huaca Pucllana,” a ceremonial site that pre-dates the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century. Then head to Lima’s main square, where you’ll see the Municipal and Presidential Palaces, two sprawling structures whose size emphasizes their preeminence in the country’s political life.

Proceed next to the Plaza de Armas to view the Lima Cathedral and stop by the tomb of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro. You’ll also swing by the Santo Domingo Convent, home to a sprawling monastery complex.

Before finishing your Lima city visit, make additional stops at the Museum of Religious Art and the Church of Santo Domingo, final resting place for the saints San Martin de Porres and Santa Rosa de Lima. At the end of your sightseeing adventure, receive a drop-off back at your Lima hotel.

Ursula was a wonderful Peruvian tour guide. We were in the plaza the day Pwry was participating in the soccer ⚽️ game. Security was present everywhere! I loved the San Martin de Porras introduction,as well the story of Sta Rosa de Lima. I recommend you stay in the Main plaza and have lunch at Tantas restaurant . Amazing !

We had a great time exploring Lima. We saw the area of Miraflores close to our hotel then went to see the cathedrals in the city. My group was the only one on this tour. Only downside is the stated time is 4 hours and we only spent about 2-2.5 hours sightseeing. Professional staff and transportation. Would recommend.
