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

Great day with Lima Gourmet Tours seeing some of the Lima sites and visiting some great restaurants. Loved the market where we were showed exotic fruits and veg. Our guide was passionate about Lima, informative and great fun and the organisation was perfect - picked up and dropped off on time and the pre-trip liaison over the itinerary was very... More

This was one of the first tours we decided to do when we arrived in Lima. We did the Evening Tour. We were picked up at our hotel ON TIME, and was greeted by our friendly tour guide and driver. We went to 4 restaurants in total and all were lovely. You are not fed a full dinner meal but... More

We arranged for a long stop-over on our way back from Machu Picchu (connecting flight in Lima) and wanted to take advantage of being in that part of the world. We found the Lima Gourmet Food tour on Trip Advisor and are so glad we did. Our family of five (2 parents, 3 young adult children) had an amazing adventure... More

What. A. Gem. This experience came highly recommended by a friend of mine...and it delivered and then some. We did the day tour on our last day in Peru (and South America) and we couldn't have asked for a better last day traveling. Seriously -- everything about this experience made me happy (and I can be a tough critic)! Great... More

This tour is highly recommended by one of my coworkers. You have to make reservations online to secure a spot. We were picked up from our hotel in Miraflores by David and a driver. First stop of the night tour was Calla - a bar/restaurant/lounge with nice views of the beach. We had a quick lesson of how they make... More

The wonderful experience started with Samantha who was incredibly responsive to all of my inquiries and emails and was extremely helpful with recommending additional things to do in Lima as well. Then there... More

We had such an amazing time with our tour. Learning how to make ceviche and pisco sours was such a fun experience and tasted great. David was so laid back and knowledgable. From the coffee to Huaca Pucllana, we enjoyed the tour. You don't really have to worry about the travel, and there really is enough time to enjoy every... More

I went on the culinary day tour by myself as I had some spare time prior to flying out of Lima. The tour exceeded my expectations as the food was fantastic, the company was great and it was an excellent opportunity to learn about the different neighbourhoods in Lima. I had been in Peru for 12 days and I purposely... More

The Lima Gourmet Company is a great experience in Lima! When you buy your ticket, you will learn how to do Ceviche, Pisco and will have a great lunch at Huacca Pucllana ruins, where you will taste a little bit of Peruvian Cuisine. Also, you will met young people from all around the world. Thanks Samantha, David and Lucas for... More
