    1. Lima: Colonial City Tour with Catacombs Visit

    Immerse yourself in Lima's colonial history with this tour. After getting picked up from your hotel, start your experience at San Martin Square, where you can admire striking examples of colonial architecture such as the old Bolivar Hotel. Later, visit the breathtaking Plaza de Armas and admire impressive buildings such as the Presidential Palace, City Hall, the Cathedral, and more. Finish your tour in downtown Lima at the fascinating Catacombs and Museum of San Francisco. Learn more about Peru's colonial period through the museum's vast collection of artwork, see rare editions in the library and wander through the blood-curdling passages of the catacombs, where the bones of 25,000 people lie. At the end of the day, get dropped off back at your hotel.

    Lucas was an amazing tour guide. I usually don’t do city walking tours but this was worth it. We would never have seen or learned so much about Lima if it wasn’t for Lucas. I definitely recommend!

Jonathan was a WONDERFUL tour guide! I could not have asked for anyone better to visit the Catacombs (a must-see in Lima). He was flexible and adjusted the tour to our needs! He is so experienced, kind, and knowledgeable on Peruvian facts! LOVED this tour :)
