- Do we eat a lot during this food tour?
Definitely! We recommend to only eat a light lunch. In terms of food portion, this food tour could be described as an above average-sized dinner that includes desserts. We promise you'll have a good night sleep after – such a bargain, right?
- What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?
If you suffer any allergy o dietary restrictions, make sure to inform us during checkout and we will take the necessary precautions. Due to the nature of this food tour, unlike our Barranco food tour and our market tour and cooking class experience, it is sadly quite challenging to cater for vegans.
- Can you pick me up and drop me off from/at any location in Lima?
Although pick up and drop off are not included in the tour price, it can be arranged at an extra cost from/to pretty much anywhere in the city. Of course price will vary depending on the distance and the type of vehicle you need for your party. If you want to be picked up or dropped off in your hotel, at the airport, the Callao cruise port, Miraflores, Barranco, San Isidro or a museum, please reach out to us and we will send you a quote in no time!
Our guide, Galia, was friendly and informative - she introduced us to the historic centre, gave us an insight into the culture and history of Peru and of course some of the traditional food and drink. More than enough to eat and some places for us to re-visit... Great tour. Thanks Galia.
We have done food tours before in other countries but this was by far the best. It was so good I booked another one of their tours for a few days later. There was so much wonderful food I didn’t think I’d ever eat again. Our guide Galia was excellent. I would totally recommend anyone who loves local food, history and visiting quirky places do this tour.
We took a couple of tours in Lima and really like this one as it combines food and history (it replaces your dinner for sure - so much food). The guide Ximena was quite gripping and lighthearted, which definitely contributed to a perfect tour.
This tour was the highlight of my time in Lima, Galia is awesome with a great sense of humor. Highly recommend this tour, and if I'd had more time in Lima I would have tried some of their other options.
Fantastic tour with some light walking and lots of food like churros, pan con chicharron chilcano (better than pisco sour!), and street food stands similar to what we are used to in Asia, but with different flavours of course. Good way to experience Lima like a true local.
We enjoyed this food tour quite a lot. There's a lot of tasty food and Lima at night is beautiful. The highlight was the last portion of the tour, which consists of street food carts - a very lively place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our Lima Historic Food Tour with Galia. She is very fun and knwoledgable. The food was good and it was definitely a great way to conclude our trip in Peru.
Perfect tour to discover Lima's historic center while eating. Our guide was quite knowledgeable about history, culture and of course local gastronomy. It was a great way to spend our first day in Lima.
