Continue to the vibrant and colorful market and immerse yourself in the bustling atmosphere; follow your guide past stalls bursting with exotic fruits and fresh vegetables and discover sizzling local dishes.

    Next, venture to the legendary Monasterio San Francisco to explore the subterranean catacombs that connect the spiritual structure the other churches in the city. Enjoy a refreshing rest with a glass of traditional pisco sour in a bar that claims to have invented the iconic national beverage, using your newly learnt phrases to greet locals.

    Conclude the tour at the ambient Plaza de Armas, continuing to explore Lima independently if you desire. Your guide is happy to provide assistance in getting back to your hotel in Lima.
