Brief

This 3.5 hour walking tour will guide you through the colorful stately mansions and churches, as you make your way along the cliffs, while hearing about Barranco's fascinating history and tasting some snacks along the way.

Tour Detail

Your walking tour begins after hotel pickup and it will allow you to discover all about the local hidden places where locals go. You will know where is the fun and also taste some yummy snacks. You will visit two great different local districts of Lima which are very unique and not as touristy, so you will feel like a local.

First, you will visit Chorrillos fish town which is a local town where you will see and be part of the local atmosphere and their main activity: fishing. You will visit the fish market, meet the funny fishermen and learn all about the local products. You will also visit the fishing port where you'll have good photography and sea life watching opportunities that will impress you.
Afterwards, you'll drive to the top of the cliffs (the famous green coast) to visit the Chorrillos neighborhood, people, streets and local markets. Here, you will learn and be able to taste all types of local snacks and flavors Peru has to offer.

Following this visit, you will head to the Barranco trendy neighborhood to admire the colorful mansions and local murals, while listening all about Barranco's fascinating lifestyle. See the famous 'Bajada de los Baños' walkway, the romantic 'Bridge of sighs' and enjoy a visit of one of the various local galleries which Barranco is famous for. Known for its 'bohemian' lifestyle, Barranco is local artists' favorite district, making this cool district the trendiest in the city.

This tour will truly give you a taste of the best of Lima.

We offer a morning tour, starting everyday at 9am
