What people are saying about Plaza de Armas de Lima

Great tour! Get a taste of many local dishes that you probably wouldn't get around to trying on your own. Great dialog over food, culture and history. Definitely a great introduction to a few of Lima's tasty treats. Favorite part was the delicious churros from the hole in the wall near Plaza de Armas.

Great tour, starts in Miraflores but then you go straight to the historical centre - so you get a bit of a city tour on top of the food tour! You'll get to try quite a few local snacks (make sure you come hungry) and then you get a nice pisco sour at the end. Definitely recommend.

Very nice and competent guide Rudi. He introduced us to local food at local markets and places. During our walk in the downtown of Lima we saw a lot of historic buildings and were introduced to daily life of People Jere.

Pablo was very knowledgeable! I would have been too intimidated to explore the food and restaurants on my own, but I found I really enjoyed them and was so grateful for the experience!

We loved it, the flavors and the way you get to know Lima, its streets and the people. The guide, xime is the best, he contributes too much to the tour
