What you will visit:

Lima and Districts (driving tour)
Discover the "City of the Kings" on a relaxed drive that includes several stops for photographs. In addition to seeing historic Lima, you'll travel to Miraflores, an exclusive residential and upscale retail destination with lovely green parks, stately homes and the Miraflores "malecón," a six-mile stretch of boardwalk with cliff-top views of the Pacific Coast. You'll also see Barranco, a thriving artist district with colorful art deco buildings restored to their former glory, and the beach community of Chorrillos.

Local Fish Market
Peruse a lively seafood market, where local fishermen sell the freshest catch of the day. You'll also watch as they repair their boats and fishing nets for their next adventure. Learn about life on the sea and today's challenges of artisanal fishing. A local chef demonstrates how to prepare his family's recipe for ceviche, one of the most important cooking techniques in Latin America.

Boat Ride
A short but scenic boat ride takes in the sights from a different vantage point. Enjoy coastline views and learn about the biodiversity of these waters and the fishing industry that thrives here.

What you will see along the way:
Settle into the motorcoach for a panoramic drive through Lima, the fifth largest city in Latin America and widely considered to be one of its most beautiful. Relax as the ever-changing perspectives on the city take you back in time to the days of the Spanish conquistadors. Enjoy views of the modern Miraflores district with its wide-open spaces, parks, shops and malls and the sparkling Pacific Ocean that stretches out before you. In Barranco, the artistic district, you'll see such attractions as the famous Puente de los Suspiros (Bridge of Sighs) as well as many art galleries and museums. Chorrillos charms with its laid-back, beachy atmosphere.

Snack:

Ceviche is fundamental to Peruvian cuisine. Its preparation includes using citric acid to marinate raw seafood to give it a cooked appearance and texture, and while not a difficult task, making a great ceviche isn't easy unless you know a few of the tricks of the trade. Engage in a ceviche demonstration by a local chef and learn how to prepare the best version of it following his family recipe.
