I learned a lot during my tour of Pachacamac. It was a great introduction to my travels in Peru, and I’m glad I went there and learned some history before going on my Inca Trail trek this week. The guide, Jordan is a positive and knowledgeable person. You won’t be disappointed if you book this Pachacamac tour!

Jordan was a fantastic guide. He really knew a huge amount about the Pachacamac, the history of archeology of the site, and also in general about Lima and how it has developed. The tour was personal, meaningful and FUN. Highly recommend.

Great mini day trip out of Lima. Our guide, Jordan, made the experience much more exciting. He’s very knowledgeable, friendly, and kind. This tour was well worth it!

Jordan is an excellent guide passionate about his profession (speaks Spanish, English and French). The site is very interesting.

Muy buen tour. Jennifer, nuestra guía nos ilustró mucho sobre la historia de Perú
