Taste the most typical Peruvian savours! Ceviche and lomo saltado are on the menu of this typical Peruvian food tour. Devour dishes, drinks and products in one of the most beautiful districts of Lima – the bohemian and artsy Barranco. Interact with our local hosts to learn how to prepare your ceviche, and a pisco chilcano.
During this tour, you’ll visit 8 places, which we carefully selected, where you will taste 15 different flavours of fruits, drinks, and dishes, and be introduced to local small entrepreneurs. Get immersed in Peruvian history and culture through food. As you will see, every bite has a story to tell!
You can choose the start time during the booking process. You can come to the Plaza San Francisco in Barranco at 9.30 am (or 3 pm) and then end the tour at around 1.30 pm (or 7 pm) at Barranco’s main square; la Plaza de Armas.
If this tour is not exactly what you’re looking for, you can get inspired by other Day Tours in Lima or check out other gastronomic tour options we have in store for you. Or go to our blog to read and learn more about Peruvian cuisine.
Of course, food waste can be an issue during this tour, as visitors don’t always manage to eat up. Therefore, the guide constantly observes the amount of food that people eat or don’t eat to adapt the size of the portions and reduce food waste to the absolute minimum. Plastic and other waste are also reduced where possible.
Around 8 different small restaurants are visited during this tour, which generates a great additional income for all of them. In addition to that, part of your money will go to the Impact Eat Foundation established in Canada in 2020, supporting small producers in Peru thanks to sustainable agritourism activity. In this tour, you will also visit a shop in Lima created that offers products from 40 different small Peruvian producers. One of these producers was able to open his own small Coffee Bar, thanks (partially) to the income generated by the shop.
Definitely! We recommend not eating anything else other than a light breakfast before this food tour. This tour constitutes an average-sized lunch with dessert. Your belly will enjoy it, we promise!

Traveling with a child under 6 or an infant? If they’re not going to directly participate, or if you prefer to share your food with your little one, there is no need to purchase an extra ticket. However, still let us know if you’re going to bring a child under 6, so our guide knows and will be prepared for it. You can do this by selecting “Infant” in the booking form.
Children between 6 and 11 can still go for free as long as they share the food with their parents. Also, select “Infant” for them.
For children of 12 years and older, or those that want to eat like the rest, please select “Child” for a special child discount.
Yes, it’s possible! However, please note that you will need to reach out to us via the enquiry form of this tour and pay for a private food tour. The times shown on our website are small-group shared tours.
With our tour, extremely unlikely. All the stops are carefully vetted by our team and we run regular checks to make sure they maintain the same standards, both in terms of quality of the food as well as hygiene. Food poisoning is of course something that shouldn’t be ignored in Peru, so we always recommend to eat or drink at places that were recommended by at least one local person, combined with positive online reviews.

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 embarked 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.
