A conventional program may include Lima historical center, a visit to a museum and walking around the beautiful neighborhoods of Miraflores and Barranco. A customized tour can include a visit to a typical market where you will appreciate the great variety of fruits, vegetables and Peruvian products ; enjoy delicious food and drinks at affordable prices at a small local restaurant; try a typical pastry at a food stand in Miraflores or perhaps visit a good and inexpensive vegetarian restaurant. We could travel in a “micro” (small bus) and travel as millions of limeños do every day; visit an art gallery, etc. and not be subject to arbitrary schedules between one attraction and the other. We can stay as long as you like in any gvien place and we may be open to spontaneous adventures.
