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

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...More

Ronald gave a great tour. He is very knowledgeable and a good communicator. We had a custom tour for our small group, and he did every thing we asked for, and was patient when we needed to stop at the bank and for snacks.
