Full description
On this tour, get to know the culture and history of Lima and its best attractions. Visit the Real Felipe Fortress dating from the 18th century which was built by the Spaniards to protect themselves from invasion. It has since been converted into a museum where you can learn the stories of the naval battles and attacks that the fortress has withstood in its 3 centuries of history. Later, visit the Plaza Grau and the Historic Center of Callao. Admire graffitied walls, streets with many contrasts and several colonial-style buildings. Walk through the streets of Chucuito and admire the neighborhood's picturesque multicolored houses. You will also discover the city's best beaches and seafood restaurants here. Finally, stroll through the old resort of La Punta, where you will see beautiful beaches and 20th-century houses. Enjoy the sea breeze while admiring the Palomino Islands in the distance. Before ending your experience, enjoy excellent panoramic views of the entire coast on board a local boat ride around the La Punta and Callao beach areas.

I want my money back! A waste of time. 1. The guide barely spoke English. 2. The guide knew nothing about the fort. 3. The guide admitted we not in a safe place and to not show our cell phones.
