About Lima Walks
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

I went with Bella on a tour of the old city. This was a fantastic way to see things as much of it I would have missed or been oblivious to. She was very informative and I would recommend doing this tour. The old city is far more interesting than the Miraflores area.

We booked this tour very late, but Ronald Eldward was very quick to respond and showed up the same day. The guide is very knowledgeable about the history, architecture and you can easily ask him questions about Lima as well. I would not think twice about booking Ronald as a guide.

We had the privilege of doing a walking tour of old Lima with Ronald. He took what would have been a 5 minute drive-by and turned the 2 hours into a captivating, fun and history filled walk. Like many U.S. cities, the downtown core of Lima has been largely abandoned since the 1950s. Ronald brought the architecture alive and provided an itinerary including stops at the colonial era Casa de Aliaga (which can only be visited with a registered guide), architectural viewing of some key old buildings and mansions, the Dominican monastery and even an eye-opening tour of a still operating old tenement-style courtyard that I wouldn't have dared walk into on my own.

If you are in Lima, don't miss a guided tour of the historic districts of the city with LimaWalks. Ask for Javier Lizarzaburu, a great journalist and experienced tour guide who is working on interesting project on the preservation of historical and archaeological (colonial and precolonial) patrimony of the city of Lima. Schedule your tour with Lima Walks!

I only had two days in Lima and spent the first day walking around the city with Javier. He did a great job keeping the tour broad enough that we covered numerous areas and facets of the city but provided the color and history at each stop along the way to make me feel connected to the city. Brought me to several locations that I would have not found on my own or would have passed by without knowing as well. Highly recommend.
