You'll see an incredible array of Lima's beauty on this tour, including the old historic centre, the neighborhood of Miraflores, and the gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean from Love Park (Parque del Amor).

What to Expect
Choose a morning, afternoon, or evening bus tour, and meet your driver in central Lima. Then hop aboard your open-top double-decker bus and begin your city sightseeing tour.  On a morning or afternoon tour, see top sights including the Cathedral Basilica of St. John, the Huaca Pucllana—pyramids dating to AD 500—the Municipal Palace of Lima, and the Plaza de Armas (aka Plaza Mayor). Visit the sacred Monastery of San Francisco (Convento de San Francisco) and admire the baroque architecture for which it is famous. Your audio guide provides colorful backstories while you take it all in through the bus’s panoramic picture windows. Then continue to Love Park (Parque del Amor), where your tour ends with fine views over the Pacific Ocean. On the evening tour, admire these same attractions illuminated at night. See the city sparkle against the dark sky, and catch the impressive Magical Circuit of Water fountain show at Parque de la Reserva.
