From Lima: Ballestas Islands & Nazca Lines with Meals
- Private group
- Transportation included
- Duration: 14 hours
Lucas was our guide, and was very knowledgeable about many aspects of Lima and its history. The car ride was very long, but we brought movies/books to entertain ourselves. We had a rest stop about an hour of the way in where we bought coffee and ate from the included “box breakfast.” We then continued on to Huacachina to ride the sand buggies and sandboard. After that, we flew over the Nazca lines in a Cessna Grand Caravan which was great except for the 60deg banked turns so everyone can see the lines. Lunch was after that at appx 2pm, and we skipped the wine tasting cause our stomachs were still struggling from the flight. The ride back took about 5 hrs as there was lots of traffic going into Lima. Overall a great experience.
Ceaser our guide was very good,perfect English and informative to our questions about culture,education etc.the sights were interesting.enjoyed the wild life lots of sea birds,sea lions etc up close that surprised us how active they all were. Nazca flight very good saw all the lines. Plane was agile and as result some were queezy or sick thou. Saw everything as promised. Expensive but you can appreciate a private car,guide,flight involved etc it does depend on what interests you.if old buildings and markets are your thing you won't like it. no time for shopping and not much stopping for photos on the way as time is always on the table- just go go go. It is as described. Had a great day.
The experience was amazing! Cesar went above and beyond to make our experience a really memorable one. We customized our tour and added driving the ATV quad bikes in the desert and also we wanted to watch the sunset in the Huaccachina desert which is an absolute must. We removed the Ballestas part to accomodate for all of this. We got back to Lima by 11pm and once again Cesar attended to our every need. Would definitely recommend.
A super incredible experience and a must do in Nazca! The plane does swerve and turn in order for you to have the best view and it’s quite normal... so try to hang in there for the 30 minutes because it is so worth it! Great service and I felt safe throughout the whole trip. I only wished the pilot could tell us more information about the Nazcan lines because he kept repeating the same words for each of the motif we saw.. lol
Visiting all the places was a treat ! The best thing though was our travel buddies Aymen and Pablo. We were picked up right on time in a perfect condition SUV for the long drive. Our buddies were courteous, well spoken in English, knowledgeable and by the end of the day we were like friends. A 17 hour trip that day felt like traveling with family. Highly recommended!!!
