Peruvian Food & Market Tour
[about 3 Hours]
*This is our signature Lima food tour... for good reason!
Why take this tour?
Start time: 10:30am
Duration: approximately 3 hours (end time 1:30pm)
As our expert guide takes you far from any touristy vibes to experience a distinctly Peruvian style neighborhood market during this walking tour off the beaten track, you will learn about an array of different regional ingredients, most of which are very strictly Peruvian. It will soon become obvious why Lima and Peru have become the food meccas of South America! These ingredients come from the plentiful Pacific coasts, the fertile Andean mountainsides, and the farthest corners of the Amazon Rainforest that Peru so proudly calls its own.
Enjoy tasting regional meals, fruits, cheeses, liquors, drinks, and sweets, all the while chatting and laughing with our enthusiastic friends in the market who are always so eager to share their favorite flavors.
For seafood lovers and those who will try anything once, we will show you how to prepare a quintessential ceviche in the market itself. You get to select fresh catches of the day that pique your curiosity for your dish (for example fish, scallops, mussels, squid, octopus, abalone, or even sea urchin!) and see on the spot how this timeless Peruvian classic is "cooked."
Carefully pace your eating and always save some room in your stomach! We then continue to meander through the market, tasting a large variety of dried snacks, side dishes, fresh fruits, time-honored liquors that will surely give you a nice jolt, and succulent juices you won't easily find on just any restaurant menu.
If you enjoy "superfoods" such as quinoa, chia, maca, sacha inchi, and others, we will show you the best places to shop and purchase some to take home with you. It will likely be a fraction of the price you'll find at home, since there's no import tax on these locally sourced products.
Whether you love to EAT or just want to see what the Peruvian food hype is all about, this is definitely an authentic, alternative Peru food & market tour that foodies can’t miss.
Authentic Peruvian gastronomy, which is our passion and focus, may not always be vegetarian or vegan friendly. Unfortunately this year 2016, it has been difficult for us to find vendors that offer vegetarian meals and options in our local market, especially in comparison to last year, and ones that are representative of the food history in Peru. Essentially, we cannot guarantee the local availability of certain veggie dishes that we'd love to show you.
Should you still be interested in soaking in the Lima's vibrant gastronomic environment with us, we will try our best to substitute as many meat-based ingredients as possible. Exact availability will depend on daily local availability and conditions.
