What people are saying about Nazca

This was smooth as silk. We got picked up at our hotel in a luxury car, and it was just the 2 of us with the driver and our guide for the day. Because of this, we could arrange the day as we wanted. Of course our Nazca flight was a certain time. But we had a flight home that same night and needed to be back at our hotel by a certain time. Our guide arranged everything and we got to do the things we wanted to in a quicker time period. We saw the Nazca lines (as well as a nice flight before and after to the airport). Then went dune buggy riding and sand surfing at a different national park. We didn’t want to do the liquor tasting. So it all worked out. Plus our guide, Jessica, spoke amazing English and was extra helpful in many ways!!!

Our guide was wonderful. She was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge pertaining to our tour in particular and Peru and it’s culture and history generally. She was personable, and a delight to spend time with. She kept the tour lively and interesting at all times, and kept things flowing smoothly from start to finish. Just as importantly, she sensed when to step back and let us enjoy what we were seeing while being discreetly available when we were ready to reengage or move on or needed something. She was a superstar conversationalist and a perfect host.

Flying over the Nazca lines is a unique experience. It's worth it, even at the risk of some dizziness. Visiting an oasis and the sand dunes of a desert complete the experience, although it is good for tourists to know that the buggie ride is vertiginous, with fast and steep climbs and abrupt falls, not without some risk. A special highlight for the guide Dilma and the driver Víctor, both with great human quality and professionalism.

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.

Very well organized! I would recommend the adventure to anyone!
