Highlights of Lima - Private Half Day Tour

Highlights of Lima - Private Half Day Tour

For the traveler who only has a few hours to spare, this tour, coined "The Perfect Snapshot of Lima" by previous guests, covers it all. Compare and contrast colonial Lima, with the modern district of Miraflores along with the fun and bohemian seaside town of Barranco. From high above the Pacific Ocean you will look down upon the iconic "Green Coast" as it boasts both contemporary city life with rudimentary shanty towns; you won't believe how much ground we will cover in just five short hours. If you can give us an additional hour of your time, we can add on a stop for the most delicious local sandwiches and exotic juices to make your half day or lay over tour just perfect!
