    This 4-hour Lima food tour will allow you to discover the beautiful neighborhood of Barranco. Your guide will take you to a variety of places filled with locals, which will allow you to get a proper taste of Lima's most emblematic dishes and drinks.
    While strolling through the colored streets of Barranco, you will visit a mix of trendy and more traditional places. These will include an ample variety of tasty bites and drinks that are among Peru's most emblematic, and listed in most "to-taste" lists.
    Aside from discovering new flavors, another important component of this food tour is to discover the story, the cultural background, and the current context associated with each bite." Yummy" reactions are not enough for us, we also want to hear those "wow" and "oh fascinating" when telling you all about about organic coffee farming and ají de gallina.
    It's a walking food tour, with 3 to 15 mins of walking between each food or drink stop, but to make this even more interesting and dynamic aside from the food itself, we threw into the mix some urban art and sightseeing, as well as live ceviche and pisco sour demos with great local hosts. We aim to make this food tour truly memorable and Instagram-worthy.

Don't hesitate to throw historical, cultural and political stuff into the ring, our guides are trained to face pretty much any battle.


  • One of the best Food Tour’s I’ve been on

    I do food tours whenever I travel on business in France, Italy, Vietnam, the Czech Republic, India, Thailand. This was probably my most favorite and memorable tour. it was an excellent balance of eating, sitting and talking, and walking to take in the incredible ambience of Lima. Every food stop was worth it -- well planned and delicious. Every stop I felt like I couldn’t eat any more, but by the time we reach the next place, I was ready to go again. Allyson was a remarkable and vibrant host. She did an excellent job of informing us, and at the same time giving us space. She was also able to accommodate everybody’s special food needs. Thank you very much for the wonderful memory of Lima.

  • Great!

    Really great experience on Barranco food tour. Cecilia (Ceci) made us feel so welcomed as a friend. She provided great knowledge of local produce, before we sampled the unique dishes of each restaurant. It was well paced and mixed some sights along the way. Would highly recommend!

  • A fantastic tour from a local guide

    It was so hard to pick a favorite activity from this guided tour. We really loved the pisco sours, the ceviche demonstration, and the coffee with delicious empanadas. Everything was fantastic. Our guide, Nathaly, was an expert. From her, we learned the origin of many of the local dishesand their ingredients. She was very patient and informative. Thank you so much, Nathaly!

  • Very, very good tour!

    Very, very good tour! We booked this tour at the last minute during an overnight in Lima. Cecilia was our guide and she was fantastic! We learned so much about all of Peru, not just Lima. We enjoyed hearing about the agricultural products and how they are used in food. We tasted different fruits, vegetables and chocolate. We then when to 5 different establishments and ate different dishes prepared with the products we had learned about. GO HUNGRY! Cecilia is very knowledgeable about local culture and you can tell she loves her community of Barranco as did we by the time the tour was over. Every establishment was welcoming and generous. We took many pictures with Cecilia and this tour is a highlight of our trip to Peru. In addition to being awesome, we felt it was a great value for the food too. Really, GO HUNGRY!

This tour can cater for people with many allergy, including to gluten, lactose and soy. If you have a severe nuts allergy, please do not book this tour, as cross contamination can happen with certain foods included in the tour. This food tour, including for those who book the Shared Group service, can be adapted for people on a vegetarian or vegan diet. While our goal is to be as inclusive as possible, we are unfortunately unable to offer halal and kosher alternatives at the moment due to the difficulty for some Peruvian restaurants to acquire and stock items with such characteristics.
  • 02 Do we eat a lot during this food tour? Does it constitute a meal?
    Definitely! We recommend not eating anything else other than a light breakfast/lunch before this food tour. The food included in this tour is proportional to a multi-courses meal.

    Pick up and drop off is not included in the group tour price. For private Lima food tours, where pick up and drop off is included for most locations, for LIM Airport or Callao cruise terminal, please reach out before booking, as extra details need to be checked.
  • 04 Do I have to book in advance?
    We recommend to book at least 1 week in advance to make sure it's not sold out, but we accept bookings up to 4 hours before the tour starts.
  • 05 What if I need to cancel this food tour?

This longer walk traditionally include some stairs, but if your mobility is limited or if you are tired, just let our guide know – we will actually have a shorter alternative for you!
  • 07 I’m a solo traveller. Can I book a food tour too?
    We encourage it! This food tour will allow you to meet other travelers who are passionate about gastronomy. Do not be afraid to book, even if you are solo. We could have other reservations for that same day so you can share the experience with other foodies.
  • 08 Is this food tour family friendly? If I'm bringing an infant/very young child, do I need to purchase a ticket for them?
    If you are traveling with infants or children under 6, you would only be required to purchase a ticket and pay the "Under 18" rate if you'd like them to have access to their own food servings. If you prefer to share your food with your little ones and/or if you want them to eat the food you prepared for them before the tour, there is no need to purchase a ticket for them – they can participate for free. However, please let us know in the booking comments if non-paying children are going to be present so our guide knows and will be prepared for it.
  • 09 Can I book this food tour as a private tour?
    Absolutely! You can book a private food tour for your party as is (via the "See Availability" button), or you can customize this tour so it caters to your needs and expectations (reach out to us via email).

  • 11 Is this tour wheelchair accessible?
    Unfortunately, this tour is only partially wheelchair accessible. Sadly, one stop in particular is only accessible through a staircase, and a small portion of the itinerary has shamefully narrow sidewalks. The good news is that we would still be able to offer you a tailor-made private food tour with an itinerary that would match about 90% of the standard tour. Reach out to us via email to make this possible.
  • 12 Do you offer any other tour?
    Yes, we have several food tours in the bank. Each of them offer a different perspective on Peruvian gastronomy. We like to think we have an option for all budgets and interests! Although we specialize in food tourism, if you'd like to visit a museum, or another area of Lima not covered by one of our tours, please do let us know – we will for sure be able to arrange something with the help of our trusted partners.
  • 13 Is Lima safe?
    Just like in any big city, you have to be careful with your belongings in crowded areas. Of course, Peru being a country with big inequalities showing off the latest smartphone or an expensive watch in the street could unfortunately make you a target for thieves. But if you keep a low profile, you should be more than fine!
  • 14 How likely am I to get sick?
    With our tour, extremely unlikely. All the stops are carefully vetted by our team and we run regular checks to make sure they maintain the same standards, both in terms of quality of the food as well as hygiene. Food poisoning is of course something that shouldn't be ignored in Peru, so we always recommend to eat or drink at places that were recommended by at least one local person, combined with positive online reviews.
