My daughter's birthday was while we were in Lima, and she wanted to visit this museum. The whole experience was great. We were picked up at out hotel, taken to the museum, had a private tour of the exhibits, and dinner at the restaurant. The museum is pretty extensive for a private museum, and the displays are very well done. The restaurant was very nice, a beautiful outdoor setting with excellent food and pisco sours. If you only have time to see one museum, book this experience. You will not regret it.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English well. The objects were interesting. I was disappointed in the dinner. The atmosphere was lovely, but I had the chicken ravioli and it wasn't very good. If I had it to do over again, I'd go see the museum during the day, and skip the dinner.

This was probably our favorite part of Lima. The erotic exhibit of the museum was fascinating and very surprising. The dinner at the museum was fantastic, and the pisco sour with the meal was top notch. We highly recommend this dinner/tour combo!

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 tour was one of the highlights of an excellent few days in Lima. We came to Peru thinking history was all about the Incas. We soon learned otherwise and having a private tour of the Larco was a perfect walk through history. Our guide was great. She was knowledgable, friendly, and brought the history to life. Eating at the museum -- in a beautiful setting -- was a nice way to end the evening. We weren't sure we were going to find time for the tour given all we hoped to see in Lima but as soon as it began, we were thrilled we had made it part of our visit.

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

Our guide was absolutely fantastic. The problem came in that the tour was too short to get through everything. The museum was a blur but the highlights were tantalizing. The big problem came with the dinner. We were only allotted 40 minutes for three courses. Food was so-so and we did not even have our coffee. Recommend a separate tour of the museum and forego the meal. Very disappointed.

This museum is beautiful! It's small but just perfect for quick overview of Peru's history and culture. It has plenty of artifacts, and since it's very private at night, and actually there were just the 4 of us in there, we were able to look up close and thoroughly enjoy the guide's explanations. The 3 course dinner was delicious, and the outdoor dining area was so beautiful. The bus that took us to and from our hotel was new and clean, there was a nice driver, and also a great tour guide that went in with us.

This was a wonderful tour. The company picked us up at the hotel. Drove us to Larco. This museum is amazing. But what brought it to life was our tour guide. He was a wealth of information. He told us the history, and interesting facts about the pieces in the museum. Dinner at the Larco was DELICIOUS. This tour is rated a FIVE STAR in our opinon

Originally advised pickup as 1915-1925 and this actually became 1830, and we were not told of this change. I think thie change affected other clients at other hotels also. So there were some pickup delays. Whilst the tour was good, and the Museum a must see it was rushed toward the end to accomodate dinner. Gabriela's passion and knowledge of the museum is fantastic. The meals were ok, and two of us had sea bass and thought it very average. We had an hour for dinner which was probably just enough but we were late getting to the bus at 10 pm. The grounds of the museum are spectacular with bougainvillea and cactus in particular and it would have been great to see the grounds in daylight. But Gabriela and the Museum 'swung' the night.

It was such a lovely night. We were picked up at our hotel and transported to the Larco Museum. To be able to visit the Museum in the evening when it's quiet was priceless. There were just our group 3 persons and two other familes touring the museum at the time. Our guide was just wonderful. She had extensive understanding of the history of history of Peru and Larco Museum and was able to share it without boring us. The Museum is just beautiful, the architecture, artifacts, atmosphere, everything. We had dinner in the courtyard after the tour and boy! it would make for some wedding venue! Food was excellent. All in all, the tour was worth every penny!

This was a great night. We were picked up on this tour and went immediately to the Larco Museum where there is a significant private collection on display. After a very insightful tour from our guide who was incredibly knowledgeable, we had dinner at the café in the museum. It has a great ambience, is quiet and the service/food was great. Overall the tour is terrific. You get some great cultural understanding of life before the Inca, learn the deep history of Lima and surroundings and see some amazing historical artefacts. The dinner was great and just what we needed with the service being prompt. I would suggest this as a must do in Lima as it gives you a deeper understanding of how rich the history is outside of the Inca in Peru.

This tour was so unique and exclusive. We were the only people in this amazing museum and had a private guide to show us the beautifully preserved pieces. The restaurant setting was in a discretely lit garden with great food wine and service. This was one of the best museum experiences we have ever had. Bought loads of gifts in the museum shop as well, excellent quality.
