These gourmet culinary tours in Lima were designed so that visitors explore the local cuisine, culture and traditions while being treated like royalty in the City of Kings. All in one day, we take visitors to a local market, secret garden cafes, and Lima’s landmark restaurants where they will prepare Peru's flagship dish and drink - Cebiche and the Pisco Sour - as they wind through the city's most emblematic districts. « less

This was a really great tour! The stop at a market to try a variety of different fruits! A milkshake made of Lucuma. Learning about pisco and ceviche. The whole thing was fantastic! Samantha was also great! The day of our tour the coffee place was closed (some electrical problem or something) and when I inquired about it with her,... More

Our tour was the highlight of our stay in Lima! We had a group of ten, and our tour was smooth, fun and full of delicious food!! We ended up going back to La Botega Verde for more lucuma milkshakes the next day! The lunch meal was one of the best we have ever had! I can't recommend this company... More

What better than food and tourism combined? Although I only found out about this when I was already in Lima, Samantha was nice enough to arrange my last minute reservation. Our guide David was extremely polite and nice. He was very knowledgeable in history and gastronomy. We went to very interesting places. The best being the municipal market where we... More

We arrived in Lima on Independence Day, and found many things closed. Being foodies, and remembering wonderful gourmet tours of Vancouver and Seattle, at the last minute, we contacted LGC about doing the day tour. Brilliant choice. We were picked up from our hotel in a small van, and joined one other party. We set out first for the food... More

What an enjoyable day! Sylvia was our guide for the day tour and she was very knowledgable, warm and friendly. We learnt not just about Peruvian cuisines but Sylvia was open to discussing a variety of topics like Peru's social culture and history that made the tour even more interesting. We also couldn't believe how much food was included in... More

I booked this at the last minute after another company never confirmed my booking, but I don't regret it at all. I feel this is a great way to visit various restaurants that would be hard to find on my own, especially when you only have 2 days. Also, we got to sample so many amazing dishes that I wouldn't...

We chose the evening tour to celebrate our wedding anniversary in Peru. The guide couldn't have been nicer or more knowledgeable. She told us about the significance of the all the food we ate, as well as all the neighborhoods we traveled through. She also talked quite a bit about Peruvian history, which we both found very interesting. The food... More

I began my trip to Peru with the day tour which was hosted by David. He was a wonderful guide and was very educated in not only the culinary culture of Lima but also the history. He hosted the group in a very relaxed setting that made it easy to understand a grasp all the culture that Lima has to... More

A friend and I treated ourselves to a food tour after returning to Lima from trekking the Inca Trail. We had a fantastic time and the food and cocktails far exceeded our expectations. We visited several wonderful restaurants we would not have found on our own. We also got to experience several different neighborhoods which was awesome. I definitely recommend... More
