LIMA WALKS offers guided walks in Lima. With an uninterrupted history...

LIMA WALKS offers guided walks in Lima. With an uninterrupted history of more than 2000 years, Lima is perhaps the most fascinating city in the continent. In many ways, it's a hidden city and the best way to appreciate its architectural and historical richness is by walking. Ancient pre-Columbian temples, Colonial churches and mansions, abandoned haciendas, Republican houses, early XX Century buildings and modern villas, all share a space, side by side, in this amazing city - surely the Americas' best kept secret.LIMA WALKS offers 11 architectural/historical walks, of which four in the historic centre and six in different districts, and two gastronomy walks, one on ingredients in the Peruvian cuisine and the other on regional gastronomy. The walks can be done in English, German, Spanish or Dutch. As of 10 dollar per person

I'd definitely recommend taking a Lima Walk while in Lima. We had an extra day while on a the packaged tour; I told Ronald which tour we were on, and our interests, and he came back with a custom built day that NAILED it! We went out with Ronald on our last day, had a day full of new places,... More

My brother and I wanted to explore Lima's historic city center and heard from some local friends that Ronald was a great guide. He did not disappoint! He has researched and compiled detailed historical and cultural knowledge that he brings to life with his friendly demeanor. We met in Miraflores and took a taxi to the city center, then did...

If you don't want the regular tours with information that sounds tricky and outdated, contact Lima Walks. I have seen tours in many places including my country, Peru, and believe me these guys know their business. They are academics, you will not hear false information and it is not expensive. En español o en inglés, they are amazing!

We had just one day to spend in Lima and wanted to maximize our experience and understanding of the city center in a very short period of time. We booked a walk with Ronald - it was four of us (2 couple) for $60 USD total (June 2015). Ronald was very responsive leading up to the walking tour - both... More

By walking through the city I see a big differnce to others in South America, as example Santiago de Chile. LIMA has churches, nice Palmtree surrounded Plazas, good food, German bakeries with cake and icecream, its a charming city.

Did another walk with Ron, this time of Barranco. Ronald shares much information that is not published, and many diverse subjects are covered. He is always easy going, open to questions, and responds to emails in a very prompt answer. Will do a third walk with Lima Walks next time I come back.

If you are looking to learn a little more about Lima outside of the main tourist attractions, Ronald is your guy. He is passionate about the city, the architecture, and sharing the history. He is a calm and interesting conversationalist, which allowed us to ask a number of questions regarding the culture and the changing history of Lima -- this... More

Love this city but not as much as Ecuador. Really wanted to head down to Manchu Pichu but couldn't make it. Great food and hospitality.

My mom and I took Ronald's walking tour around Lima. I didn't have much of an expectation going in, as I have been on many city tours and they all tend to blend together; but this one was different. Ronald was great! He knows a ton about Lima, really brought the city to life, and taught both of us a... More
