From the tip of La Punta to Monumental Callao, you will see firsthand how Callao's architectural landscape is a fascinating blend of old and new styles, reflecting the Spanish colonial legacy and the growth and modernization of the city.

This unique tour will take you on a journey through the district of La Punta, where you can enjoy stunning views of the sea from the boardwalk. The tour includes stops at several local restaurants to taste Callao's most emblematic dishes and drinks. Along the way, you will also discover the vibrant Callao culture and its omnipresent urban art, including a visit to the iconic Monumental Callao area.
    Our first stop is a well-known and traditional fisherman's restaurant. You'll get to savor their famous pan con pejerrey, known in the area for its unique taste and perfect crispiness. Additionally, you will try their chupe de pescado (a fish-based chowder) with a cup of coffee. An unforgettable introduction to the local cuisine and culture.
    Our next stop will take you to the heart of the fishermen’s community, where you'll have the chance to hear their stories. You'll discover how they have honed their craft over generations, passing down their knowledge from father to son. You'll also get to witness the preparation of a fresh causa acevichada by Maritza, right on the beach.
    Our culinary adventure in Callao will then lead us to another famous eatery where we will taste another local delicacy: muchame de atún. Combined with some pisco to get going, and a very charismatic restaurant owner.
    With the sounds of live salsa music in the background – if you are lucky to come across one of the local groups – you'll immerse yourself in the rythms and colors of Monumental Callao. This tour is perfect for foodies and culture lovers who want to discover this unique side of the city. After exploring some art galleries, we will indulge in some sweet treats at a famous dessert spot that is popular among locals. Unless you won't have more room for dessert? Impossible!
