After Larco museum your Travel Buddy will drive you to the historical center of Lima and on the way we are going to have time to talk about how was Peru during the colony times and why this city was so important for the Spanish.
The “Plaza Mayor” is considered as part of the Cultural Human Heritage by UNESCO since 2000, when you get there you will understand why.
Close to the “Plaza de Armas” is the San Francisco convent and the Catacombs. This place has a mix of Culture, History and Mystery. Over here you will see how art was used by the Spanish to teach religion to the native Peruvians.
Before finishing Travel Buddies would like to take you to a place where not many visitors go.

"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!"
