Lima: Street-life and markets of Lima

Visit Us

Street-life and markets of Lima

Given that the popular image of Peru is so closely tied to the Incas, the modernity and chaos of present-day Lima can come as a bit of a shock. Yet look beyond the surface and this lively and dynamic metropolis is full of intriguing scenes of everyday life as well as a unique and vibrant cultural scene  ̶  ample reward for those who venture beyond the tourist trail of colonial cathedrals and catacombs.

We can take you on a guided tour with a difference, travelling by public bus (an experience in itself!) and seeing Lima like a local. First we'll delve into the arty, bohemian quarter of Barranco, brimming with atmospheric restaurants and bars and home to a dawn-defying night life. The next stop is Chorrillos, a leafy neighbourhood perched on a Pacific bluff, where we'll visit fish and fruit markets bustling with trade. Finally, at the port of Callao, you'll have the chance to sample the delectable national dish of ceviche and Peru's trademark Pisco Sour cocktail.
