What you can expect
Fall head over heels for Lima during a small-group tour to a series of destinations that reveal the city's cultural past, present, and future. See examples of ancient art and discover the myriad ways in which Lima's pre-Columbian lineage continues to influence the flourishing Peruvian capital.
Join your guide and an intimate sightseeing group of no more than 6 participants, and travel to Huaca Huallamarca in the San Isidro neighborhood. After an intriguing introduction, venture inside the ancient archaeological site, which dates back to the first millennia AD. Peruse the small, yet well-curated mummy museum and learn about the people who inhabited Peru long before the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century.
Then, trade the archaeological dig site for the airy halls of the Larco Museum—home to a world-renowned collection of pre-Columbian art. See exquisite relics sourced from every corner of Peru before heading to the Cafe Museo Larco to taste lucuma, a fruit with maple and sweet potato notes.
Last though certainly not least, head into the UNESCO-listed Historic Centre of Lima for a chance to see the Changing of the Guard at the Church of Santo Domingo. Here, in the heart of the city, the interplay between Lima's pre-Columbian past and its abiding Spanish colonial influence are on full display.
