Hosted in English, Spanish

What you'll do

We'll meet at Parque Kennedy, and we'll pick up "Grin" electric scooters. To do this, every guest *MUST* have data service on their cell, and a credit or debit card to enter into the app. If need be, we can visit a cell service store to get set up before we go out on the ride. "Grin" charges s./1 per ride and then s./0.60 per minute, which at the time of this writing is $22.19/2 hr. That is paid by each guest, apart from the tour cost on AirBnb.
In Miraflores , we'll visit an ancient pyramid, beautiful coastal parks, and all of the famous spots you've just got to see while you're here.
As we continue down the coast, we'll reach bohemian Barranco. We'll continue basking in the beauty of the coastal parks, but catch a decidedly more artsy vibe in this gem of a district. We'll get into some "hidden" areas that many locals haven't discovered, and all of the spots everyone loves as well!
I'll explain points of cultural reference, give you tips on where, and what, to eat, and share general "on-the-ground" advice that can make a real difference in how you experience the city.
After this tour, you'll have a great understanding of marvelous Miraflores and beautiful Barranco, a better understanding of Peruvian culture in general, and the opportunity to improve your language skills too. You'll know more about the "comida criolla," and you'll better understand how to navigate the city.

I'm from Minnesota, but I decided "enough winter!" and moved to Lima about 5 years ago. I studied A LOT about the culture, history, and music before I came here, and now some of my Peruvian friends joke that I'm more Peruvian than they are!
I'm the founder of Latin America Language Tours, and I teach English and Spanish to students all over the city. I'm an avid hiker, a motorcycle enthusiast, and proud nerd who's always out and about around town. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge with others, and I'm always happy to answer questions and help people however I can! You can check out lots of photos on Instagram @latinamericalanguagetours, and be sure to also check out my other tours in BarrancoMiraflores!

Where you'll be

This is a tour of mainstream and not-so-mainstream destinations in Lima, delivered in an active, adrenaline laced experience. We'll visit many cool sites and stop for photos and shenanigans, all while "scooter-ganging" the backstreets of Lima. We'll cruise from northern Miraflores to southern Barranco and we'll see the best these districts have to offer.

I highly recommend this experience! The E-Scooters made it possible to see and learn about a day’s worth of culture and history in a more manageable time, and are also super fun to ride. Jared was extremely knowledgeable and personable, and he was able to cater the tour to our specific interests due to the small group size on a weekday. If you are looking for a tour that has a little fun and flare, definitely book this one! I also got many amazing scenic shots, in addition to the awesome photos Jared took of my family.

More tips

We won't be racing, and we will stop often, but be sure you're physically able to ride a scooter for 2+ hours. This tour will cover a lot of territory, so **wear comfortable shoes.** We'll only go as fast as people are comfortable with, and I am a good riding coach to help you along.

Smart Phone with internet service

Comfortable shoes (closed toe)
