Overview
Exploring Lima, one of South America’s biggest and busiest cities, independently can be a challenge. Step aboard an open-top bus so you can easily see the Peruvian capital’s top sights such as Cathedral Basilica of St. John and the Plaza de Armas, learning about Lima's rich history along the way with your included audio guide. Choose from three daytime tours—the historic tour, Barranco and Miraflores, and the city tour—or the Night and Fountains tour, which includes entry to the Magical Circuit of Water.
Highlights
  • See Lima’s top sights like the Huaca Pucllana and Plaza de Armas with ease
  • Open-top bus with panoramic picture windows offer sweeping city views
  • Learn about Lima’s rich history via your onboard audio guide
  • Choose from four different tour options to suit your interests and schedule
What to Expect
Choose a morning, afternoon, or evening bus tour, and meet your driver in central Lima. Then hop aboard your open-top double-decker bus and begin your city sightseeing tour.  On a morning or afternoon tour, see top sights including the Cathedral Basilica of St. John, the Huaca Pucllana—pyramids dating to AD 500—the Municipal Palace of Lima, and the Plaza de Armas (aka Plaza Mayor). Visit the sacred Monastery of San Francisco (Convento de San Francisco) and admire the baroque architecture for which it is famous. Your audio guide provides colorful backstories while you take it all in through the bus’s panoramic picture windows. Then continue to Love Park (Parque del Amor), where your tour ends with fine views over the Pacific Ocean. On the evening tour, admire these same attractions illuminated at night. See the city sparkle against the dark sky, and catch the impressive Magical Circuit of Water fountain show at Parque de la Reserva.

This is quantified as a hop on/hop off your and states you can begin and end at any site listed. However, when I called the office half an hour past the scheduled pickup time I was told I had to be at a specific location. That was not made clear, my time was wasted and the

I stayed in Lima for 2 days after a business trip and chose this, as have used City Sightseeing in other places previously and found them to be good quality. I did both the night and day tours on separate days and enjoyed them both, the commentary was in English and Spanish ad

During the day it's not as good. Now at night it's beautiful. The bus has this neon color, see below there is also the magical water fountains that light up at night. So for the same price you get twice as much. BE SMART
