What people are saying about Nazca

An excellent trip. While our visit to Ballesteros was canceled when Coast Guard shut down port due Tonga Tsunami concerns , our guide Edourdo Tello pivoted and arranged a private tour of the Paracas Nature Reserve!!! Nazca was amazing!!!! Pisco & wine tasting from Ica region was Seeing the dunes in Huacachina were humbling. A long day, but a GREAT day….. well done

Had an excellent experience on this trip to Ballestas, Oachachina and the Nazca lines. Was worth every penny and a real highlight of my trip. Both guides (Rudi was one of them, the other I can't remember your name, v sorry!) were very knowledegable, professional and affable. I'd highly recommend this day trip to others!

I expected this to be good but not this great. My guides were the best. They really explained me every detail of our tour and made sure it was special. They really went out of their way to make this an unforgettable day. I have 0 complaints. This tour was flawless . Thanks again Amigos!

Although it seems that it will be a lot, give time to everything. Pedro, the driver and Jacie, the guide, very friendly and attentive. It has been an unforgettable day. Listen to Jacie and take a sickness pill!

Very impressive flight aboard an 8-seater Cesna, allowing you to admire the Nasca lines for 35 minutes. The captain takes care to approach the figures from the left and the right so that everyone can see them.
