Arrive in Lima and transfer to your hotel. After check-in, enjoy your first taste of South America on a guided coach tour. A thriving capital city, Lima was first founded by Spanish conquistadors in the late 16th century and still has a well-preserved colonial center. Our tour begins at the Basilica and Convent of San Francisco, where we visit its beautiful courtyards and catacombs. Later, we see Huaca Pucllana, a structure that pre-dates the Incas. We continue to the upmarket district of Miraflores, where traditional stalls rub shoulders with modern boutiques. Overnight Lima.
