    What to Expect
    Take in the many attractions found in the historic seaside city of Lima during this half-day sightseeing excursion. During your trip through this Peruvian capital, known to some as the “City of Kings,” you have a chance to view a range of historic architecture, unique cultural sights, and admire its gorgeous coastal landscape.

    Start your day with either a morning or afternoon departure, receiving a pickup from your Lima hotel in Miraflores, San Isidro, or downtown. The first stop of the day is Lima’s historic city center, an area once known as the capital of the country’s colonial viceroyalty. Head next to the “Love Park,” a beautiful green space along the ocean-influenced by Barcelona architect Gaudí and featuring a sculpture by Peruvian artist Victor Delfín.

    Continue to San Isidro, a laid-back residential area of Lima. Drive past Huaca Pucllana for a glimpse of the ceremonial site, which pre-dates the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century. Then head to Lima’s main square, where you’ll see the Municipal and Presidential Palaces, two sprawling structures whose size emphasizes their preeminence in the country’s political life.

    Proceed next to the Plaza de Armas to view the Lima Cathedral and stop by the tomb of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro. You also swing by the Santo Domingo Convent, home to a sprawling monastery complex.

    Before finishing your Lima city visit, make additional stops at the Museum of Religious Art and the Church of Santo Domingo, the final resting place for the saints San Martin de Porres and Santa Rosa de Lima. At the end of your sightseeing adventure, receive a drop-off back at your Lima hotel.

    I did the half day Lima sightseeing tour and enjoyed it very much. Very reasonably priced. Guide Sonia was extremely knowledgeable and had a nice way about her in giving us the highlights. Driver Luis was great as well. Would recommend this tour.

    Lima half a day city tour is definitely advised for travelers who have a stop over in Lima. You will have the opportunity to visit the Main Square, the Cathedral Dominican Monastery and Miraflores district full of nice restaurants and shops.

    Not sure what the last guy meant? It is a small bus (16 seat) tour, and they will pick you up from your hotel in Mira Flores. We were picked up, do were the others. Good tour. Enter your hotel when booking.

    No, there are a specific set of hotel pickup points in Miraflores and San Isidro. However there are quite a few, so if yours is not on the list you should not have to go far, in my case only a 5 minute walk. Once you have... More
