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.

Aaron surpassed all expectations! He is truly THE best. With his expert driver John (& immaculate roomy van for the 4 of us), Aaron could escort us on foot to many widely dispersed venues with perfect timing (front row at changing of guard, no-wait Cathedral entry, photo ops galore at Love Park, uncrowded top museum, etc.). The highlight: a delightful dinner prepared by his charming mother at their home, where he demo-ed the art of making Pisco sours! He's a top guide AND a lovely person who really cares.
