  • Lima: Miraflores Trending Flavors Half-Day Walking Tour

    3. Lima: Miraflores Trending Flavors Half-Day Walking Tour

    Your morning coffee is going to be at the Terrua coffee shop, partnered with a brief explanation about the coffee scene in Peru. Your first visit is to the Surquillo market to try some fruits such as Lucuma and other Peruvian products that are not very known around the world. After a short walk, there is a stop at a local bakery called Lucas, where you will try some desserts made with the ingredients seen earlier at the market. Following this, you will visit La Preferida, a traditional ceviche venue in Miraflores. La Preferida is famous because of its seafood, and while here you will be invited to taste a couple of tapas of your choice. The tour would not be complete without sampling the national Peruvian drink, Pisco. On the way back to Terrua, there will be time for one last stop for a traditional churro for dessert. Coffee is not available on Sundays.

    Our guide was young Pablo (afro hair) who we enjoyed very much. The food (and drink) variety was extensive, and Pablo was knowledgeable about the flavors and preparation. And, there was plenty of food - glad we skipped breakfast before the tour. We liked this tour because it was more about the eating culture and flavors of regular working Peruvians - NOT just small tastings at high end restaurants. Would recommend this tour.

    Enjoy a 4 hour-long street food tour with this in the historic center of Lima. Meet with your local guide in front of the restaurant Soperos Unidos, your first stop of the day.  During the tour, stop by some of the most classic, but also the more contemporary resto-bars of Lima city center to have a taste of the popular “comida al paso”. While discovering tasteful local delicacies such as chilcano, churros, or anticuchos, you’ll be learning more about the important historical facts which took place in this specific area of the city, as well as interesting facts regarding the economy and daily life in Peru. In the main square, known as "Plaza de Armas", appreciate some of the most impressive and architectural monuments — heritage left by the Spanish conquerors.

    We arrived 10 minutes early and the guide was already there and waiting for us. She started our tour right away. We wandered all around the historic district trying a number of savory and sweet treats, as well as several nice drinks. Our guide Diana was very knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as telling us lots about local foods in Lima. We had an awesome time on the tour and we would highly recommend it. We do food tours in most cities we visit and this one was one of the best. Make sure to come hungry.

Excellent Tour highly recommended for lovers of gastronomy in general and good food. The circuit offers the possibility of knowing the authentic Peruvian cuisine (particularly Lima) and the local gastronomic customs.

We really liked the tour, as there was a lot of information packed well and nicely and a lot of local specialties to try.

Very positive experience, if you only have one day to see Lima very good experience, very good lunch.
