What people are saying about Nazca Lines

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.

Super good, we had a problem with the arrival time and they did not put any problem, and as soon as we arrived we left a little bit. Super nice pilots too. A 10! thank you

A well organized tour with an excellent guide and comfortable transportation.

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