Join the City Sightseeing bus tour at the Larcomar Shopping Centre and begin your adventure through the beautiful city of Lima. Rather than City Sightseeing’s usual hop-on hop-off service, City Sightseeing Lima operates a panoramic tour, so please be aware that this isn’t hop-on hop-off. Instead, passengers can sit back and relax on our double-decker, open-top tour bus and embark on an amazing 4-hour exploration of Peru’s Capital! If you’d prefer an evening tour, opt for the Panoramic Night & Fountains Tour at check-out for another unique experience, enjoying 360-degree views of Lima lit up at night time! Our City Sightseeing tour bus will take you to the city’s most fantastic sights and attractions. Admire the Plaza de Armas from the open-top deck, considered to be the main square in Lima, featuring some of the city’s most impressive architectures, including the Government Palace and the Municipal Palace of Lima! Another of the city’s most fascinating buildings includes the Cathedral Basilica of St John, featuring a striking gothic and renaissance style architecture that was originally built in the 16th century! Another historical landmark visited along the tour is the iconic Huaca Pucllana. These pyramids were built in around 500AD and remain extremely well-preserved today, they’re one of Lima’s most fascinating and recognised sights! Enjoy more wonderful sightseeing as the tour heads to the Plaza Grau, where passengers can admire the famous monument over 20 metres tall that is dedicated to War Hero Admiral Miguel Grau. Along the Night & Fountains Tour, you’ll be amazed by the Magic Circuit of Water, which has even been approved and certified as a Guinness World Record! This iconic attraction displays over a dozen fountains that feature a multi-coloured display and even plays music as the fountains present their very own eye-catching show!
