Here you will be able to appreciate the impressive monuments and imposing architecture from the colonial times. You will visit 16th century Convent of Santo Domingo, one of the best preserved monasteries in whole of Lima, where you will be able to see the old Lima from its tower.

Great tour of major city sites, for half day tour!

Sandra Vargas, our tour guide, was excellent. This was an great way to see historic sites in Lima, with limited time frame. Tour was personal without any of the 'tour bus' atmosphere that happens all too often. Ms Vargas pointed out several tourist sites that we might visit on our own later, should we choose to do so; as well as taking us through other of Lima's main tourist attractions.
