Full description

Head to the San Francisco Convent and its famous catacombs. Discover a unique part of Lima underground. Walk through with corridors that are full of history and beautiful paintings. See the library, rooms, the main cloister, and art made of wood and stone. Explore a network of tunnels and underground rooms, and see the remains of people who lived hundreds of years ago. Visit the historic side of Lima and explore its streets at night. After pickup at your hotel, admire the illuminated Cathedral of Lima, an architectural jewel that has a Renaissance-style façade.

Stroll around the Main Square, see beautiful buildings like the Government and Municipal Palace, then experience the nightlife of the colonial side of Lima on Chabuca Granda boulevard

Stop to purchase local desserts and typical drinks such as picarones (donut), churros, arroz con leche (rice milk), emoliente (roasted barley grain drink), and chicha morada (purple corn drink). 

Later, make your way to the Magic Water Circuit, the Guinness World Record holder for the biggest complex of water fountains in a public park. The fountains have different forms and sizes and release jets of water up to 80 meters (262 feet) into the air.

Have your camera ready to capture a magic show of light, color, music, and images.

This was a fantastic tour, totally worth the money. They picked us up at our Airbnb. And there was never a dull moment. Alexandra, our tour guide was amazing! She was so funny and charming and interesting. And she was so well informed. We learn about the history of the Incan culture in about Peru we learned about the politics of Perú, we learned about so very much.

What an excellent experience! We couldn't be happier with our guide, Mayoral, and his above-and-beyond service! The Basilica and catacombs were gorgeous, and the water circuit show was super fun. Mayrol took the time to give us deeper insight into Peruvian culture and life in Lima. He was very patient with our countless questions! We had our very first Pisco Sours and picarones on this tour. Our driver was also friendly and transported us safely through the craziness of the Lima roads.

Very punctual, you really enjoy the waterfalls and the show... something to rescue is that they offer you snacks on the tour and if it's not because you ask the guide they don't give you anything, and the snack is a bottle of water and a mini bag of toasted potatoes.
