Francisco Pizarro founded Lima, the capital of Peru, a city of 9 million people, in the 16th century as the City of Kings. Known for its historic buildings, monuments, colonial and republican architecture, you will see the elegant past of this beautiful city.

In our tour we will walk around the Plaza de Armas where you will see the Presidential Palace, The Cathedral, Archbishop palace and the City Hall. In addition, we will tour San Martin square, known for its colonial architecture, Jiron de la Union with the Lady Merci Church and its impressive facade. Last but not least, we will tour the San Francisco monastery and its catacombs.

Afterwards, my Mother will delight your sense of taste with her Peruvian gastronomy. She will teach you how to make "Ceviche", one of Peru's well-known dishes. At the same time I will teach you how to make the perfect Pisco Sour.


On our journey we see the different aspects of the city over the districts of
Miraflores, Barranco and Lima Downtown. Includes the visit of the MATE Museum, The Pre Hispanic Museum Larco Herrera and the Monastery of San Francisco with pieces from the XVI Century

Then we are going to taste original peruvian food by Danmar (Co-Author of the DVD "From the Heart of Peru - My Mother's Kitchen) Dishes such as Cebiche, Lomo Saltado, Arroz con Pollo, Huacaina and Pisco Sour.
By request on your booking, we can offer a Vegetarian or Gluten free option, all of them with our peruvian cuisine influence.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our day tour with Aaron in Lima, Peru on 28 Feb. 2018 was excellent. He and his brother picked us up at the designated time from the cruise port, at which we immediately began our tour of Lima. Aaron was very friendly and answered all of our questions along the way. He first asked us where we had been. At the end of the day, we were given a presentation of a sumptuous lunch by Aaron's mama and a nice homemade Pisco Sour drink before he took us to the airport. I would recommend his tours to anyone
