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 a great walk with Javier, he was incredibly knowledgeable about the history, architecture and current situation in Lima. Highlights for us were seeing parts of the city that we wouldn't otherwise see - for example abandoned colonial mansion taken over by families in Lima. Definitely go into Casa Aliaga, an amazing house that you need a guide to... More

My father and I went on a 6-hour walking tour of Lima with Javier on the first day of our 2-week trip to Peru, and it served as a good introduction to the city as well as the country. Javier shared with us not only the history of Lima and its suburbs but also what's happening at the moment with... More

Mr. Javier was a wonderful guide. He is knowledgeable, witty and articulate. He grew up in Lima but has lived in the US and London, so his English is excellent but he also has a passion for the historic heritage of Lima. We were a group of 7 and everyone was very pleased. Outstanding value!

This walking tour was fantastic! Ronald was very interesting, informative and had excellent answers to all of our questions (and we had a lot!). Taking this tour of downtown Lima allowed us to see many places we would have either not noticed or not entered on our own. Communication was a breeze, and Ronald met us at or hotel and... More

We had only two days in Lima and were not sure what we could see in such a short period, which fell on the Easter weekend. After reading many positive reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to go with Lima Walks. We didn't regret it! From the start, communicating with Ronald was very easy. He helped make recommendations for our tours,... More

Two years ago we were getting ready for an unforgettable journey to Peru and the highlight in Lima was "our walking tour around Plaza de Armas " with Ronald Elward to see and experience the many historical places, churches and the elegant Casa Aliaga. We have to thank Ronald for this highly informative and educational walking tour, we have seen... More

Don't miss a chance to see Lima through the eyes of Ronald Elward. I learned more about Peru in two morning walks with Ronald than I did in all my reading before my trip. He's a great guide who knows not only history and architecture but also best places to shop, eat, and drink. Highly recommend Lima Walks!

Our tour company booked a half day with Lima Walks. Ronald was able to adjust our walk to cover some sights we had not seen. He took us around Pueblo Libre where he taught us about the ancient culture through the colonial period. Then we had a Cliff Notes tour of Baranco before our lunch reservation. We enjoyed the friendly... More

I'd definitely recommend taking a Lima Walk while in Lima. We had an extra day while on a the packaged tour; I told Ronald which tour we were on, and our interests, and he came back with a custom built day that NAILED it! We went out with Ronald on our last day, had a day full of new places,... More
