Very tasty food and the best museum in peru!
This museum in Lima is a great preparation for the Peruvian monuments because the guide explains a lot about the artifacts and life during the Inka period. Use a guide because that's how the artifacts come to life! The museum was also the home of its founder and the grounds where dinner is served are magical. I had a great night.
The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Andean Art. I learned a lot. And the food was good.
Excellent evening at the Larco, had museum to ourselves!
The museum is fantastic the guide was lovely and the meal very tasty. Due to traffic though my visit was very rushed I had about 45 minutes in the museum and the same for dinner. The museum has English commentary everywhere so I'd advise to go it alone without a tour guide ad you could spend a good couple of hours there. On the way back to the hotel I'd a lovely driver though at one stage I misunderstood what he was saying and thought I was being let out to get a taxi the rest of the way. Luckily I had misunderstood and he dropped me back to the hotel. Was overall a good experience but I spent as much time if not more in the van than at the museum. Not the companies fault of course
