Full description
Enjoy a 4 hour-long street food tour with this in the historic center of Lima. Meet with your local guide in front of the restaurant Soperos Unidos, your first stop of the day.  During the tour, stop by some of the most classic, but also the more contemporary resto-bars of Lima city center to have a taste of the popular “comida al paso”. While discovering tasteful local delicacies such as chilcano, churros, or anticuchos, you’ll be learning more about the important historical facts which took place in this specific area of the city, as well as interesting facts regarding the economy and daily life in Peru. In the main square, known as "Plaza de Armas", appreciate some of the most impressive and architectural monuments — heritage left by the Spanish conquerors.

We arrived 10 minutes early and the guide was already there and waiting for us. She started our tour right away. We wandered all around the historic district trying a number of savory and sweet treats, as well as several nice drinks. Our guide Diana was very knowledgeable about the history of the area as well as telling us lots about local foods in Lima. We had an awesome time on the tour and we would highly recommend it. We do food tours in most cities we visit and this one was one of the best. Make sure to come hungry.

Not kidding...come hungry!

What a great evening in Lima! The first "bite" was the best churro that we had ever tasted in our lives! Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting as she led us around the city, stopping in at different unique locations to eat authentic foods and drinks. At the end of the tour, we were all overly stuffed, but could not stop talking about the fun, food and interesting people we had met. Emilie, in the office, was overly kind and professional, giving us all the information that we needed before the event. Our driver was prompt and safe. We would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a perfect evening on the town, learning about Lima.

Great food, fantastic guide and good company

Since I was only staying in Lima for a few days, I thought it would be a good idea to book a nice tour to better explore Lima. Immediately upon booking, I was very kindly approached by email and they also helped me with many other things besides the tour. The tour itself was very entertaining! I was walking through Lima together with a couple from Australia with our sweet guide. She explained a lot to us and showed us nice places in Lima. We had several drinks, dishes and desserts and at the end of the evening we were completely full. I particularly liked that I was picked up from my hotel and also brought back! This tour is definitely recommended and definitely worth the money! Nice to get to know Lima this way!
