Full description

Begin the tour with pickup from the Port of Callao, before traveling into the city of Lima.

Enjoy Lima on this cultural and historical you. With a local guide, travel from the Port into the city of Lima, while learning about the historical background of the ancient viceroyalty of Peru.

Visit the most emblematic places of the City of Kings, such as the museum and convent of San Francisco, the Plaza de Armas in Lima and the Huaca Pucllana archaeological center. See the Plaza Mayor of Lima, located in the heart of the City Center, and see the historical buildings located around the square, such as the Cathedral of Lima, the Government Palace, and the Municipal House.

Observe the changing of the guard that begins at 11:20 in the morning with a small ceremony by the military band, which then proceeds with the official ceremony of the change of troops and ends at 12:20 pm. Walk in the Historic Center of Lima, in San Francisco Square, and learn about the long system of catacombs under the square, used since the 17th century as a cemetery until Don José de San Martín closed it in 1821, and remains one of the most popular tourist attractions, where some show their faith in the dead by throwing coins, notes asking for miracles, and even voodoo dolls with pins against some adversary or antagonist. Explore the Miraflores district, the place where the most important archaeological center of Lima is located, known as Huaca Pucllana, which in the time of the Incas functioned as a sacred place of veneration of the temple of the sun, then we will visit the park of Love and its beautiful sea view.

Be returned to the Port of Callao after the tour is finished.
