A brand new tour that takes you to a trendy museum of art in the most vibrant neighborhood, Barranco. Street art will be all around you and the grand finale will come with a yoga session while facing the ocean.

We always recommend having a light breakfast or at least a sufficient meal before taking any of the tours, despite none of them representing a major physical effort.
Also, remember to take with you your preferred sunblock, as Lima is a city with high UV radiation even during winter. Mats are included in the yoga tours.
