Embark on a 4-hour tour in which you will get to taste up to 12 Peruvian flavours while discovering Lima’s historical center, visiting the city’s biggest market, and walking through the streets of Chinatown.
During this off the beaten path experience, your local guide will invite you to taste some of the dishes that were born from the many fusions Peruvian gastronomy is made of.
Meet your friendly local guide in Lima’s main square. After learning a little more about the historical landmarks surrounding the Plaza Mayor, your guide will take you to taste and learn more about some exquisite Peruvian food.
As you will learn, the result of the current Peruvian cuisine was born from various influences that came in with migratory waves throughout the history of the country. During this off the beaten path experience, we will take you to places that very few tourists get to visit while in Lima.
You will visit the Central Market, the largest market in Lima. There you will taste local fruits as well as products that come directly to us from the country’s small producers. Then, your guide will walk you through the streets of our very own Chinatown, where you will try the Cantonese-Peruvian fried-rice called here arroz chaufa. It is undoubtedly the flagship dish of the chifas – that’s how Peruvians call their Cantonese restaurants.
This authentic tour is a perfect experience combining the history of Peru, the daily life of the locals, and the delicious Peruvian food. Come hungry, there is plenty of tasty food to eat!
I am Canadian and I live in Quebec. I have a BA in International Studies and Languages. After having traveled the world, I decided to specialize in community and solidarity tourism. It is during an international cooperation trip that I did in 2013 that I fell in love with Peru.
I have lived for several years in the capital where I developed a friendship with Jessy Caiado, another expat in Lima. Together we embark on that great adventure that is Exquisito Peru. Our mission is to make you discover how incredible Peruvian gastronomy is through authentic culinary experiences.
We met RESPONS in our beginnings in 2018 and we loved their commitment as well as the shared values, since developing a sustainable and responsible tourism is a pillar of our activities. To reinforce our social commitment, we have established the Impact Eat Foundation in Canada in 2020, to support small producers in Peru thanks to sustainable agrotourism activity.
