This is far beyond than just a food tour. This is a joyfull and harmonizer sociological experience. Just show up, pick up your spork and attack our peruvian delicacies which have been carefully selected for you.

Let's inmerse into the commercial, crowdy, chaotic, noisy and over-whelming streets around Central Market, China Town and it's surroundings. This foodie experience is nurtured with a great storyline guiding structure of topics with a historical background that explain a lot of problems of our society.

And guess what? You will directly support local families, discover the original Peru, and figure out what peruvians do in order to survive in this city of insanity.

Bruce's food tour around Central Lima was very well organized and fun. It was a deep dive into various wonderful food items that Peruvian cuisine had to offer. We got a very local experience as Bruce knew the eateries quite well. He also took care to give good cultural contextual information. Totally recommended for any foodie looking for a fun experience.

Bruce was very hospitable and brought us to eat local food. The food was very delicious. He gave us information on the ingredients, culture, origin, and historical facts. His English was really clear and easy to understand.

Die Tour mit Bruce war der Wahnsinn. Wir haben richtig coole Ecken in Lima gesehen und total leckeres Essen gegessen, das ich so noch nie gesehen habe. Das war bereits die 3. Tour, die ich mit Bruce gemacht habe, und ich muss wieder sagen, Bruce versteht was von seinem Job!
