Very good experience with Jordan as guide and Hector at the wheel. Many explanations on the road leading to the site, both on the history of Peru in general and the city of Lima itself. On the site, the explanations were of the same quality, we were able to have time to walk around the different excavation sites, and Jordan is a very smiling and friendly guide, who listens. I highly recommend

Greta, my guide, has been phenomenal. He has a very large command of the history of the sanctuary. The visit has been very pleasant. Thanks also to the driver of the vehicle, extremely attentive and friendly at all times. I recommend making this visit to those of you who are in Lima and surroundings

I was very happy with the tour and the guide was excellent. He displayed much knowledge and passion for his job. Visiting Pachacamac is a must in order to have a clear understanding of the evolution of the Incan civilization. The onsite museum is filled with important artifacts and tells a detailed story of the Peruvian people before and after Spanish conquest. Great experience!!
