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

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

Ronald was a perfect guide for my husband and I. He is interesting, knowledgeable and accommodating. We completely changed our tour plan on the morning we met and he had no problem with the switch up. We could have wandered around the old city on our own and seen the buildings, etc. But with Ronald we learned a bit of... More

I read about these walking tours and arranged for a small group tour with Ronald. I really can't say enough about the tour. We saw more than just architecture, learned more than just history and saw some of the most amazing things, like a fine family home continuously occupied for the past five hundred years, and the river that no...

The greeness is caused by rhe fogs, by the cool Humber current, the ciry is 12 degrees from the equator but the Pacific Ocean is about 1 degrees celsius. You have to be very careful n Lima and it is best to have a guide, to be shown the magnicient churches markets etc

Walk around Plaza de Armas in March 2014 We had arranged this walk from a continent away, met Ronald on time in front of Lima Cathedral and this tour should become the best we ever had. His explanations of architecture and the fascinating history of Lima and Peru were outstanding. He designed this walk according to our wishes and in... More

We booked a personal tour of the city centre with Roald. Lima is not a spectacular city, so it is important to make the most of what there is to see and do. We chose the Centre tour and walked round with Roald for about 2 hours. He showed us not just the main sights, but also the areas off... More
