What people are saying about Nazca

We had an amazing time with our tour guide Aymen. I am still buzzing over the great time we had today. at Ballestas we saw a whole bunch of different birds, little penguins, sea lions and even dolphins (apparently very rare). I am still buzzing over seeing the Nazca lines as it was on my to-do list for so long. Finally we went to the Huacachina Oasis where I would recommend getting the upgrade for the sand buggy and sand boarding as it capped off the great day and let us get some sandy pictures of us. Please note that they don't let you drive the buggy, but depending on your comfort level the park driver will make it feel like a roller coaster going over the dunes.

This action-packed tour was a wonderful way to see famous sites along the Peruvian coast during our stay in Lima. Our guide, Rudi, was very knowledgeable and welcoming, and he graciously accommodated us when one of us chose not to go on the Nasca Lines flight. We enjoyed every stop on the tour very much (including the flight)!

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!

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.

I love the experience. Our guide Luis was the best. They were on time, he answered all of my questions about Peru. Both the driver and the tour guide were polite. I could have asked for a better experience
