Description An exciting excursion of discovery and entertainment on a segway, an electric mode of transport similar to a scooter, as we explore two of the most famous districts in Lima: Miraflores, picturesque and modern with large parks and shopping centres; and Barranco, the Bohemian district considered an outdoor artistic and cultural workshop.

What we will see
  • Miraflores district by segway
  • Parque del Amor, La Marina lighthouse, Maria Reiche Park, Larcomar shopping centre
  • Bohemian district of Barranco by segway: Bridge of Sighs, museums and galleries, bars and restaurants


What we will do
  • We will start our tour travelling by coach to the Miraflores district, the most picturesque and popular area of the city, with a sparkling artistic scene and an almost endless array of bars, restaurants, shops, hotels, nightclubs and fashionable venues. The district boasts a modern infrastructure, wide open spaces, parks and large shopping centres.
  • After receiving instructions from a qualified instructor on how to drive a segway and move around, we will take to the streets and visit some of the most distinctive points. These include: the famous Parque del Amor (Park of Love), which opened on Valentine’s day in 1993 and takes its name from the presence of a contemporary sculpture called 'The Kiss' by Peruvian artist Victor Delfín, which depicts two lovers in a passionate kiss; La Marina lighthouse, which is 22 metres tall and stands almost at the top of the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean and offering spectacular views; the relaxing Maria Reiche Park, which runs along Lima’s sea front; and Larcomar shopping centre, situated on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This innovative complex houses around 160 stores of different types, from elegant boutiques to quaint shops selling typical Peruvian arts and crafts, a cinema, a theatre, a gallery, a video-game area and a bowling alley.
  • We will then move on to Barranco, considered the Bohemian district of the capital due to the presence of numerous artists, poets, art galleries and museums. There are also many restaurants, bars, parks and Republican-style villas in the area, and of the various attractions we will admire the Bridge of Sighs, a picturesque wooden bride, 44 metres long, which looks like it is suspended in mid-air. It is definitely the most romantic and photographed attraction in the district and it is said that if you manage to cross it holding your breath, all your wishes will come true.
  • After our tour of the Barranco district, we will get back on our coach and return to the port.
