Our Lima tours aim to promote Peru’s fabulous food while giving guests the behind-the-scenes city tour of the capital's most interesting districts. 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. Private tours also available upon request.

I highly recommend the Lima Gourmet evening food tour. The food and drinks are fabulous, you get to see different parts of town -- at one stop you dine in view of ancient ruins -- and the guides provide a lot of interesting background information on what you are eating and seeing. My minor complaint is that many of the... More

Thank you very much for your review. We are really glad that you enjoyed the experience. You are absolutely right about the noise level during the day of your tour. Lima was hosting a big international summit, APEC, and many delegations from different countries were at the same stops as us. We will make sure that in the future whenever... More

Was very excited to try the evening tour based on reviews and the restaurants I would be visiting. Picked up promptly by Jaime. Maybe 8 other people. Off to the beach for pisco sours. Guess the place was busy as we waited a bit for our drinks. It was also really noisy. Nothing was served with the drinks to munch... More

Thank you for your review. We were really sorry to read that you felt rushed. As you mentioned, a big summit in Lima was taking place (APEC) and presidents and prime ministers from many countries were in the city. Some delegations were at the same restaurants as we were touring causing there to be a lot of extra movement and... More

The Evening Food Tour of Lima was a tour packed with new pleasures. From the Pisco Sour on the oceanfront to the delightful gelato in the bustling Barranco district and the several stops in between, we were surprised by the variety of new tastes we were experiencing. Expecting to be part of a group of ten or so, we were... More

In a word...magical. After an amazing breakfast, we met our guide, Jaime Veramendi, in the lobby of the Country Club Hotel. If I've ever had an excess of abundance, it will be that day in Peru when we scheduled our food tour. If I had known I would be eating through the city in a half a day, I would... More

I highly recommend the Evening Food Tour of Lima. Our guide Jaime and his driver picked me up right at my hotel. Our evening included a stop for Pisco Sours at a beautiful oceanfront bar/club.
