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 « less

We took seven Lima Walks with Ronald in different areas of Lima. Ronald is very personable, fun and a real gentleman. His walking tours are well planned and very organized. Ronald has a remarkable knowledge of Lima's history, culture and architecture. He took us way beyond the obvious sites and guide expectations. He was always on time. He was always... More

Ronald was extremely knowledgeable and made our short one day in Lima very rich. We came on a Tuesday and did a private tour of about 3 hours, which covered the historic centre and also the popular area for locals. This was based on Ronald´s recommendation after we told him how much time we had, and what we enjoyed (history,... More

My family did two walks with Ronald when we were in Lima in 2012, and we immediately booked another walk when we were back in Lima in 2013. As usual, it was the highlight of our time in Peru. This time we did a private walk with just my wife and myself and so had even more time to ask... More

Lima Walks does great walking tours throughout Lima. It´s not the usual thing and you get to know a lot of places where you probably would have never gone to. It´s great for tourists and locals and Ronald knows a lot about the history of Lima and the buildings along the way. I really enjoied the two walks and I... More

Our Lima walking tour was the highlight of our three day stay. After two very standard group tours Ronald's insightful approach to the city he's obviously fascinated by was a rewarding experience. We were only able to book in for one half day tour so opted for a walk in the historic inner city. Ronald was able to give us... More

My Mum and I very much enjoyed our walking tour of Chorrillos. We found about the walking tours just by Googling and stumbled upon the website http://limawalks.blogspot.co.uk The walking tours offer a laid back experience, perfect for as part of a holiday or on a weekend. The best thing was seeing so much and learning so much but in a... More

Lima Walks provides an intriguing and behind-the-scenes peek into the history of Lima. The expertise of Ronald and his team is impressive - they uncover history that lies beneath the surface, underscoring ancient history, colonial times and modern-day realities in nearly every district of Lima. The Lima Walks team is not only knowledgeable, but presents information in an interesting and... More

This morning my wife and I took Ronald Elward's walking tour of La Punta, a tiny part of this huge city that juts out into the Pacific to the west of Callao. After the hustle and bustle (and noise and congestion and, alas, pollution) of Lima, La Punta seems close to Paradise, an old-fashioned seaside resort. Elward picked all the... More
