Compare and contrast colonial Lima, with the modern districts of San Isidro and Miraflores. Have fun perusing the bohemian seaside town of Barranco. From high above the Pacific Ocean you will look down upon the iconic "Green Coast" as it boasts both contemporary city life with rudimentary shanty towns; you won't believe how much ground we will cover in just five short hours. If you would like to grab some lunch on the go, featuring traditional Peruvian style sandwiches and exotic juices, just let your guide know. It may be that little extra add-in that makes your half day or lay over tour just perfect!
