Lima Tours Catch your breath after your intercontinental flight with a comfortable stay in Lima’s convenient, seaside Miraflores neighborhood. There is plenty of time for independent exploration of South America’s only ocean facing capital city. We’ve included a morning guided exploration of some of Lima’s most interesting sites. After an included lunch at one of Lima’s best known restaurants, it’s off to the Larco Museum. The museum’s remarkable chronological galleries provide an excellent overview of 3,000 years of Peruvian pre-Columbian history. Located in a unique vice-royal mansion of the 18th century, built over a 7th-century pyramid, the museum is surrounded by beautiful gardens. The Larco Museum is one of the few museums in the world where visitors can also choose to enter the storage area with its 45,000 classified archaeological objects.

Available only with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single Supplement: $195

Day 1 - Depart U.S. for Peru

Depart from the U.S. and travel to Peru. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary and airline tickets. 

Day 2 - Arrive Peru

Upon arrival at Lima's Jorge Chavez International Airport, proceed through immigration, claim your luggage and clear customs. If your luggage is delayed, fill in a PIR form before leaving the customs area – VBT representatives are not allowed into the customs area. (Please note: Also make certain that your VBT luggage tags are affixed to your bag so your VBT representative can identify you.) After exiting customs, enter the arrivals hall and look for your VBT representative, who will be holding a VBT sign and will make arrangements for your transfer via van to your Lima hotel. (Transfer time is approximately 30 minutes depending on traffic). Your VBT representative will also confirm your transfer time for your flight to Cusco at the conclusion of your Lima extension and the pick-up time for your included Lima Larco Museum visit and city tour.

Note:  Regular check-in time at the Casa Andina PC Miraflores is at 2:00 pm. Because most flights have early morning arrivals, we have secured a check-in time for all guests at 10:00 am. Breakfast is included prior to your early check-in.

VBT provides you with City Information in your Final Travel Booklet that includes information and recommendations on what to see and do in Lima during your stay. You have the rest of the day to relax or to begin your exploration of the city.

Day 3 - Lima / Larco Museum / Pacific Ocean lunch

A VBT representative will meet you at the hotel today for your included exploration of Lima. Tour the largest private collection of pre-Columbian art at the wonderful Larco Museum. You may want to try the ceviche during an included lunch overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

The rest of the day and dinner tonight is on your own.

Day 4 - Cusco

This morning, transfer from your hotel to Lima's Jorge Chaves International Airport for your flight to Cusco. Please be waiting in the hotel reception area 15 minutes prior to your transfer time; you will have received this time from your VBT representative on your first day in Lima. Once you have arrived at the airport in Lima please check in and proceed to the departure lounge. Upon arrival at Cusco airport, claim your luggage and look in the arrivals hall for your VBT representative, who will be holding a VBT sign. Make certain that your VBT luggage tags are affixed to your bag so your VBT representative can identify you. Your representative will make arrangements for the transfer to your hotel in Cusco.

Once you arrive in the Cusco (10,900-foot elevation), it will prove very helpful to rest and avoid strenuous activity as your body acclimates to the altitude. Also, beware of dehydration and drink plenty of water to help avoid altitude sickness. A couple of hours' rest now will go a long way in making you more comfortable later.

VBT provides you with City Information in your Final Travel Booklet that includes information and recommendations on what to see and do in Cusco. You have the rest of the day to relax or to begin your exploration of the town.

Cusco and its many dining options are at your doorstep tonight

VBT Air Package guests arrive throughout the day.
