“Great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

I took the bus from Miraflores. The tour from Miraflores is the last Tuesday of every month. It took us first around the city (Plaza de Armas, Plaza San Martin, Palacio de Gobierno) Very interesting tour. Don't forget your flashlight!

“here they have special guided visits only at night. Althoug you can visit it during the day.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Even though it is a Cementery from the XIIIV and XIX Century it is lijke a major museum as you can see all the beautiful sculptures. But it is way far from the city and located in an old neighborood .

“Depende / It depends”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

It depends if you are the kind of person who likes to see burial grounds, this is the one you must see, it has amazing shrines to see, they have also a night tour visit, for the ones who like "mystery things"

“Great place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2010

I visited Lima in May, 2010 and was very impresed with this tour. The tour is ran thorugh the local beneficient of Lima. Jr. Carabaya 641 Lima - Perú just downtown. I do not recall any English guide though, anyhow the place is great and you can see many architectural jewels and taste a piece of South American history. The tour is offered every Thursday and leaves downtown Lima at 7 p.m. We left on time and came back downtown around 10.30 p.m.
Many agencies ran this tour at a higher price. I paid around $3 roundtrip, Spanish speaking guide included.
Bring a flashlight, comfortable shoes you will walk a lot, and watch your step. There is a small bathroom on site.
