Once all together, we will leave for the center of Lima. After 25mins in the car, we will arrive at the historical center of Lima.

The central market of Lima, is We wian amazing opportunity for photography.

The Lively neighborhood of "Callao"
Back in our car, we will drive to the district of Callao. The district is known for being a bit dangerous. But don't worry this reputation doesn't belong to the area we will visit. We will walk through the beautiful colonial street of Callao Monumental before heading to la Punta where you will be able to try the freshest seafood in town. From ceviche to tiraditos, to fried seafood. Everything is available for you. Feel free to ask for another restaurant option if seafood isn't your thing.

Barranco
Barranco's bohemian streets. The district is considered to be the city's most romantic and bohemian, being the home and working place of many of Peru's leading artists, musicians, designers and photographers. Walking through those quiet and beautiful streets is the best way to discover this district.

Chorrillos Fishing Harbour
With a local Combi bus, we will reach the Fishing Harbour of Chorrillos. Fishermen return from the sea around 3pm every day with fresh fish. Lima is known for its diverse culinary culture, but even more for the traditional Ceviche. What better place than this local harbour to find out how limeñan people do business and handle their fish?

    I had a great day taking photos all over Lima. Dan, the photo tour guide, is a professional photographer with quite a depth of experience and knowledge of Lima. I was able to approach people with Dan’s assistance and ask if I could take their photos. I also found some nice new little places which make for beautiful photos and angles I wouldn’t have considered myself.

    This was the first time that my husband and I took a walking photo tour. We travel extensively, so we take tons of pictures; and this tour seemed like a perfect fit. And it did not disappoint; we loved it!
    We saw tourist spots and local off the beaten path areas too. We learned a few photo tips and saw various areas of Lima.
    Dan was a great guide. He reached out to me in advance of our tour; and he is knowledgeable and friendly.
    There is so much to see and do in Lima and Peru; after just one day we realized that we will definitely come back and contact Dan to arrange our tours.

    This was the best tour and day of my trip in Peru! Lucky for me and my sister, we had a private tour- no one else in our group. Super personal and detailed towards us! We were able to see the touristy aspects of Lima that are always in everyone’s list, but the best part was Seeing things that most tours don’t go to! Seeing the Market and the landmarks on the top of the mountains were my highlights! Dan was a great guide and ensured everything was in order! Felt very safe and knew we were in knowledgeable hands! Recommend this tour 100%!!

    Review of: Lima Photo Day Tour
    I am not used to do any tours during my travels.
    But I am so happy I did it that one time .
    The Lima Photo Day Tour guided by Dan is a must do in Lima .
    He will takes you into so many places you won’t be able to visit without his knowledge of the city .
    I’m not really interested in Photography, but Dan made me love the pictures I’ve been taking .
    I highly recommend this tour . It will make you love Lima City.
    Thank you so much Dan.

    Decided to take advantage of some time on my arrival day to spend with our outstanding photo tour guide ‘Dan the Man’ who has a sincere appreciation for Peruvians, their art, their culture, and their architecture. We met at a local cathedral and began our adventure through ‘tourist’ and non tourist areas of Lima to include a church with catacombs, shopping markets, architecture, cuisine, and all by using the local means of transportation and taxi combinations. He does an excellent job of highlighting the different sub-cultures from religion and artists to fishermen! Dan is an excellent guide. Great way to spend the day.

    A wonderful day! Spent a great day being introduced to Lima. Dan was most informative, answering all of our questions, taking us to see the ‘real’ Lima, not just the tourist sites. We got to travel like a local on the public transportation; he helped with photos and got us the best prices on souvenirs; than he took us to a wonderful restaurant in Chinatown for lunch. A highlight was a trip to the fish market at the end of the day before driving to the highest point in Lima for an incredible view of the Pacific Ocean. A wonderful day and great start to our Peru vacation.

    Fabulous photography tour in Lima
    I had a great day touring Lima with Dan. He arranged a private tour for me as there were no groups that day. He knows some very interesting off-the-tourist-track spots in Lima, and has an easy rapport with people and often stopped to talk to locals — which eased the way for me to take some lovely photos. It was a unique opportunity to experience Lima from the viewpoint of a local. I took a regular tour the next day but it didn’t compare to the Lima that Dan showed me. I would love to do one of his longer tours… it’s on my wish list. Thanks Dan, it was a memorable day.

    Not To Be Missed! Best Tour of Lima!
    My mother and I had a private day tour of Lima and it was wonderful from beginning to end. I am a photographer from the States, and Dan offered me a peek into the daily lives of locals at the market, in the streets, with the local fishermen, and above the city. I welcomed his expert advice on camera settings and points of view. My mother, who is not a photographer, also loved camera hints to produce fantastic photos with her iPhone. Lunch in China Town with the refreshing Inca Kola is not to be missed. Muchas gracias Dan! Can’t wait for another adventure. If you spend any time in Lima (or other Peruvian locales), find out what adventures are in store for you with Andean Photo Expeditions. Que Bueno!

    Best tour by far
    First off, Dan is amazing! My husband and I can’t say enough great things about this tour. We learned a lot about photography, but even more about Lima and the culture from a well versed local. This tour is a must for history buffs, photography enthusiasts to professionals, and travelers of any age! We stopped for coffee breaks, lunch, and gelato. He goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is accommodated! I wish my husband and I could rate this 10 stars!
