We travelled into the city by taxi - from the port it was much more expensive than the return taxi which we hailed in the city centre!

Traffic, traffic and more traffic. Endless waiting. Crowded. Felt unsafe during the entire visit. The city water park is a must see, particularly at night. The Indian Market is a colorful, interesting tourist trap.

Left the ship in Lima and caught a flight to Cuzco where I stayed the night in the Sonesta Hotel (very nice and recommended). The next morning it was an early pick-up by a local company offering a one day Macchu Picchu excursion, returning to hotel in the evening. This involved a long bus drive to the train station, train trip, and another bus trip to the ruins. It was very hot and I was wearing three jumpers ready for the cold! Stunning scenery didn't disappoint. Lots of stairs so seniors should be prepared. The next day I flew back to Lima and took a chauffered car to the next port to meet the ship. It's a long drive to San Martin port so allow 5 hours (Lima traffic is a nightmare). Read Less

We visited many interesting cultural places and learned about Peru with a local tour company. The traffic jams in Lima were the worst we have ever experienced. It compares to Rome at rush hour. Touring Lima for two days and spending hours and hours in gridlock traffic can ruin a vacation. We recommend that the cruise lines find another port to visit and forget about Lima. Read Less

Traffic is a nightmare. So are the taxis. Went to the Miraflores area-beautiful. Went to Barancas district for a while also the central square areas. City is 45-60 minutes from ship through a not so pretty part of town. Glad I visited, ... Read More

We took a taxi to Santa Rosa de Lima Shrine. A wonderful, prayerful site. It is"out of the way" but well worth a visit.

Great guide! Wonderful day. We had the opportunity to swim with the sea lions which we were not told about, and we also weren't told to bring towel from the ship

Viator organized a Lima city tour. Lots to see, but not nearly enough time. For some reason, in the largest ports, the ship only stayed til 3 which meant we just had a few hours for visiting.

Loved this port. Museums and city are marvelous... Cruise line worried us with crime warning but the city was docile in all areas we visited.

We took a taxi from the shuttle drop off point in San Miguel. There were lots of taxi drivers to choose from. Our taxi driver spoke English and accepted US dollars.
