Tour description provided by Viator

There's no better way to explore Lima than on a small group walking tour! Try out some Spanish greetings, stroll around the central market, try churros and pisco sour and explore the Monasterio San Francisco. You'll interact with locals at a pub and delve into Lima's history. With a maximum of 12 people, this small group tour offers a personal experience while exploring the streets of Lima!

You'll start your Lima city tour by learning a few words in Spanish from your local guide. Journey from the Bolivar hotel out to the City of Kings by walking along the famous Jiron de la Union, the pedestrian avenue linking Plaza San Martin to Plaza de Armas.

On the way to the central market, you'll have the option of sampling the chicha morada drink and snack on churros. The market is a great way to learn about the local cuisine of Peru. On display is fresh produce from the jungle to the coast and the Altiplano. With local dishes and fresh juices, the central market will have something of interest for everyone!

A trip to Lima isn't complete without stopping at the San Pedro de Lima church. Built in the 17th century and modeled on the Iglesia de Gesu, the church still preserves its original bell and is still an important spiritual center for many Limenos.

After, you'll visit the Monasterio San Francisco, home to the large underground catacombs said to connect the monastery with nearby churches. Finally stop to rest and try a traditional Pisco Sour in the place where it was invented (or at least so they claim!).

The tour concludes in the Plaza de Armas. You're free to continue exploring on your own or your guide can assist you in getting you back to your Lima hotel.
