Full Description:

This is going to be the best experiences you could have in Peru, because the amount of colors and art will make you travel to another world.

Your Travel Buddy is going to pick you up from your accommodation around 2:00 pm. The journey starts through the beach highway, where we will talk about Peru in the last decades. About corruption, how the city and the country changed, thanks to illegal money or the last events of terrorism during the 80’s.

Callao is the oldest and main port of Peru, for many years was conquered by “drug lords” the crime rates increase a lot, making them one of the most dangerous areas of Peru. Nowadays is a totally different place, lively and full of colors.

At the heart of the neighborhood is the old Telegraph building, that was abandoned for many years but now works as an art gallery where you can appreciate paintings, craftwork and visit some stores. The best part of this building is the top terrace which has one of the best views of the area. This is also a great spot to learn a bit more about the Real Felipe fortress, built up during the viceroyalty times.

Callao: Art in Lima Peru

After visiting this very impressive area, it is time to take the same road back to Barranco.

Barranco is considered the bohemian district; the amount of good bars and restaurants makes this place one of the “must-see” attractions in Lima, but of course with your Travel Buddy you will experience more than that.

First stop is at MATE Museum. Mario Testino is considered one of the most famous photographers around the world, and here he makes the exhibition of his best photos. His most famous photo shoot was to Princes Diana; there is an exclusive room about her.

The best way to wrap up this colorful afternoon will be trying to find one of the best views of the sunset, we promise to take you to unique place where you can capture the best picture.

"Communicating with Cesar was effortless as he was very prompt in his replies and accommodating with my last minute requests. We had Pablo as our tour guide and Pablo didn’t disappoint. He was passionate and knowledgable of the places we went and thankfully.I’ll definitely recommend this tour to everyone else in Lima who wants a fully guided experience to interesting places like Callao"

My girlfriend and I joined another tourist on the night time tour that included the Magic Water Circuit, street food, adult beverages, historic sites, and trendy bars. It was a unique and fun way to get to know the city. Cesar was very friendly and professional. Recommend!"
