Into oza kuyenza

We'll meet at the northern edge of Barranco, and we'll explore the entire district, top to bottom. We'll visit art museums, beautiful parks, local markets, and all of the famous spots you've just got to see while you're here. We'll also get off the beaten path and get into some "hidden" areas that most locals haven't even discovered!
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. I am also happy to share my experience as a language teacher and help my guests to improve their Spanish skills, and I will give a complimentary copy of an ebook I've written to anyone who is interested.
After this tour, you'll have a great understanding of the quaint 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.
Beyond all that, my main goal is for every person who explores the city with me to have a great experience!
Other things to note
This tour will cover a lot of territory. We won't be speed walking, and we will stop often, but be sure you're physically able to walk for 3+ hours. **Wear comfortable shoes.**

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 @firstdayinlima, and be sure to also check out my other tour in Miraflores!

Good way to introduce yourself to the neighborhood. I can not only make my way around with confidence, but I have some great dinner and drinks options! Definitely a good idea. Thank you Jared.

Great introduction to Barranco, and the city in general. I took this tour on my first day and it will help shape the rest of my time here. I tried a few snacks/beverages from street vendors and saw a few hidden gems that I probably would have missed otherwise. There was a lot of information but also had the opportunity to ask questions. Definitely recommend!

Booked 2 tours, the first day in Miraflores + Barranco for a Saturday morning and Sunday morning with Jared. The experience surpassed all of my expectations. I was essentially treated to a private tour just as tourism was beginning to pick up again in Lima. Jared was great to chat with, practice my Spanish, discuss history and culture of Peru, chat about our shared + different experiences in the US and South America. It was a fantastic intro to Lima and felt customized to my preferences based on my interests I shared with Jared. He also gave me helpful tips including dining suggestions and also ensured our tour ended right in front of the restaurant I had lunch reservations for. Couldn’t have asked for more. These 2 tours were definitely a memorable highlight from my trip in Peru (which included Machu Picchu and dining at Central)…that’s how much I recommend this.
