Discover Lima's rich history and beauty on this exciting City Sightseeing tour by open-top bus! Choose from three day-time panoramic tour options, the Historic Tour, the Barranco & Miraflores Tour, and the City Tour. There's also an unmissable Night & Fountains Tour, a chance to experience a night-time panoramic tour, which includes seeing the spectacular 'Magical Circuit of Water' fountain.

You'll see an incredible array of Lima's beauty on this tour, including the old historic centre and the Monastery of San Francisco (Convento de San Francisco), see the neighborhood of Miraflores, and take in gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean from Love Park (Parque del Amor). This double-decker City Sightseeing tour is perfect for the whole family and is a great way to see Peru's capital city.

  • Choose from four different tour options to suit your interests and schedule
What to Expect
Choose a morning, afternoon, or evening bus tour, and meet your driver at the Larcomar Shopping Centre or in Miraflores in central Lima. Then hop aboard your open-top double-decker bus and begin your city sightseeing tour.  On a morning or afternoon tour, see top sights including the Cathedral Basilica of St. John, the Huaca Pucllana—pyramids dating to AD 500—the Municipal Palace of Lima, and the Plaza de Armas (aka Plaza Mayor). Visit the sacred Monastery of San Francisco (Convento de San Francisco) and admire the baroque architecture for which it is famous. Your audio guide provides colorful backstories while you take it all in through the bus’s panoramic picture windows. Then continue to Love Park (Parque del Amor), where your tour ends with fine views over the Pacific Ocean. On the evening tour, admire these same attractions illuminated at night. See the city sparkle against the dark sky, and catch the impressive Magical Circuit of Water fountain show at Parque de la Reserva.

During the day it's not as good. Now at night it's beautiful. The bus has this neon color, see below there is also the magical water fountains that light up at night. So for the same price you get twice as much. BE SMART
