Peru has been declared the World’s Leading Culinary Destination for the last six years, so you really can’t go wrong when it comes to the food. In Lima, a city of 10 million residents and thousands of restaurants, it can be quite a task to whittle down the options, so why not leave it to the experts? Lima food tours at the Lima Gourmet Company have been ranked as the #1 activity in Peru’s capital since 2012, therefore guests are guaranteed to have a great time. The daytime culinary tour leads guests through a market, explores organic Peruvian coffee, includes a cebiche and pisco lesson as well as lunch alongside pre-Incan ruins. The evening food tour explores the vibrant restaurant scene as well as different regional cuisines. For birthday guests there is a special dessert and for those celebrating anniversaries and honeymoons a champagne toast!
Private Surf Lesson
Lima is one of few privileged world capitals located right on the coast. Aside from the spectacular views and incredible seafood, surf is a big part of local life - total west-coast living in the southern hemisphere. For guests looking to pick up a new skill or even perfect the art of hanging ten, Lima is the place to be.
