What people are saying about Plaza de Armas de Lima

Jordan was an amazing guide! He took us around Lima's sights while going through the city's and country's historical and social context. Jordan was incredibly friendly and professional, and was a very helpful first point of contact for someone who had just arrived in Peru. Would definitely recommend!

Sophia was my guide for this trip. She was extremely knowledgeable about all the places included in the trip, and gave me excellent recommendations on various things to try in Lima and Peru in general. I would recommend this trip to everyone looking to getting a quick and brief intro to the city!

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.

Great tour! Your really get to know a lot about Lima in 1 day. My guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We visited the historical site and the main districts of the City. Highly recommended! 10/10
