Had a great discussion with the driver on the way to Pachacamac where a phantastic guide showed the whole area - very fascinating there! Only minus: there wasn´t really a tour through Barranco, I saw it only from the window of the car. So the focus was definitely upon Pachacamac (driving there 45 minutes, tour in Pachacamac 2 hours, way back 45 minutes)
Pachacamac is very impressive in it's overall size and proximity to the ocean with remains of many temples and other structures. The recently opened museum is nicely done. Barranco was very pleasant on a beautiful sunny morning for a look at one of Lima's different neighborhoods. Definitely worth doing this tour if staying in Lima.
Fantastic tour. Our guide taught us so much about the ancient cultures at Pachacamac, but also about modern Peruvian life on the way there and back. We also booked this last minute and the company was able to arrange everything to make it work!
The site of Pachacamac is absolutely amazing. You can't appreciate its vastness until you actually see it, and then you're only seeing part of it! The small museum is very well done, and I think a good size.
If you have limited time in Lima, I suggest you get this tour. Pachacamac is magneficent.
