Fantastic trip in every way. We were met by Paul at our hotel promptly at 3 a.m. And taken to the bus station. The buses were surprisingly nice, with entertainment systems, food, etc.... My only regret was not bringing headphones for the 4 hr. Journey. In Paracus, we were guided the whole day by Alex, who made sure we were never left unattended to. The Nazca lines flight was amazing, al little dizzying for sure, but wonderful nevertheless. We arrived back in Lima around 8:30 p.m. -- this was my first Viator tour, as I usually like to do things myself and explore different countries on my own, but after this trip I am hooked! Great job to everyone involved during our day, thank you.

this was a worth the money. Fun airplane ride and got to see all of the Nazca Lines the pilot tilted the plane to each side to insure everyone on board got a good look at the Lines.

It was great, each guide or representative was there on time and helpful.
It a long day and starts early but the bus in the morning was really comfortable and provided pillows for sleeping.
The boat trip was fantastic and there was snacks while I was waiting.
The guide provided information on the Nazca lines before the flight and the lunch was 3 courses at a great resort. Overall a great day.

Fascinating. Be careful of those with flight sickness however.

Great Experience. The Ballestas Islands were amazing. All the Sea Lions, the Penguins and the million seabirds were a sight! The flight over Nazca could not have been more perfect. The pilot and Co-Pilot ensured we had a great experience. The lunch on the terrace at he Hacienda Hotel was superb - top notch. Lastly, all the shuttle staff were so polite and so helpful. Al in all, it was well worth the money.

This tour rates a 5 with us because of the excellent care we received from the first people who picked us up at 3:00 a.m. to get us to the bus, to the last person who picked us up at the bus terminal at 9:00 p.m. The young lady who took care of us in Paracus was wonderful, the Ballestas Island tour was great, the lunch was lovely, the bus was very comfortable. Our only complaint is that the Japanese pilot who flew us over the lines only spoke Japanese and ignored us when we asked for explanations in English. I know that all pilots have to know how to speak English, but he didn't make an effort. The airline should know that they had some unhappy Americans on the trip.

This was a great tour but an extremely long day and exhausting. We left the hotel at 3am and returned at 9pm. Were I to do it again, I would stay in Paracas for a few days to break up the trip. The bus was FAR FROM luxury and the breakfast served on the way and the "snack" served on the way back were disgusting. The breakfast beverages offered were coke and Inka Cola, but I was glad that they also had water.

I was not that taken with the Ballestas Islands although the boat was very nice. The flight over the Nasca Lines, however, was spectacular. Our guide was kind, pleasant and competent. He tried very hard to speak good English and had to be awarded an A for effort and success. Our lunch was also very nice in a pretty setting.

This trip was awesome. A very early pickup (3:10am) but the company made sure we knew exactly the time, etc.
They took great care of us, there were guides at every stop. The islands were beautiful, and the Nazca lines were wonderful. We had to wait a bit, but we were comfortable. We were late getting back from the lines, and had to eat our lunch, via box lunch on the bus back, but no problem. The bus was nice and had refreshments, etc.
We got back on timE, and had time to catch a 1am flight.
I highly recommend this trip!

The bus was a luxurious coach with reclining seating-wonderful. Waiting for the local transport lost uys some time, which only left us 30 minutes to eat the lunch. A Great Day though.

Every step of the trip there was someone to hand us a bus ticket, show us where to go, where to eat. The tour was wonderful. It fulfilled a lifelong dream. We had a good view of the Nasca Lines. One hint: it is better to just look at the lines. If you try to photograph them, you will miss part of the experience.The Ballestas Islands were also wonderful - so much animal life. The guide was knowledgeable and pointed out examples of each bird and mammal we saw.

Fabulous tour, great transportation. The Ballestas Islands were worth the price alone. A once in a lifetime experience.

It was such a long day but well worth it. A visit to the Ballestas Islands and the flight were well coordinated. Lunch was supplied and the bus trip was excellent, so comfortable with snacks supplied. Maybe take something to settle your stomach before the flight as you are doing alot of turns to enable you to see all the lines. A great experience.

Although it is a long coach journey, the coach is very comfortable and you can sleep. Simple meals are provided on the coach. The Ballestas islands have amazing wildlife and we also saw whales while on that trip. There are good views of the Nazca lines (worth seeing) and the lunch was good as well.

This is a fantastic one-day trip from Lima to see the Nazca Lines. I was traveling by myself and every detail was taken care for me. The bus ride to Pacaracas was great for sleeping until you got there. I was met by a guide as soon as I disembarked at the station. The Ballestas Islands are amazing with how close you get to the wildlife. Then I was taken to the airport for my flight to see the Nazca Lines which were incredible! After the flight, off to a beautiful resort for lunch poolside, looking at the ocean. Then I headed for the bus back to Lima. Incredibly well organized and a perfect way to add the Nazca Lines when you don't have much time.

Had to get up really early for this trip but was worth it! Ballestos Islands were great and Nazca more exciting than I had expected. Great trip!

This was a wonderful tour. It began at 3:00 a.m. but you had plenty of time to have a sleep on the bus. The bus was very comfortable. Everyone was given a pillow and a blanket. We were also given a snack with a hot drink both going and coming back. The Ballestas Islands are worth while seeing. We saw sea lions, penguins and a variety of different kinds of birds. We were very fortunate to get the first flight of the day to see the Nasca Lines. We even left a little early so there was no waiting around. I felt very safe on the 12 seater plane. I would, however, recommend taking some motion sickness pills before boarding as there were about 5 people using the bags while viewing the lines. You have to be quick when taking your pictures or you may not get all of them . Good idea if you are with someone to have them sit across from you so if you miss a picture on your side the other person has a chance to get it from their side. As we were coming back from the lines and minutes before landing a sand storm came up. This would have postponed the rest of the flights until the storm was over. We felt very lucky to be on the early flight. After the flight we went to a new modern hotel and were given a great 3 course meal. While the day was long it was well worth it. The price may seem expensive but we were given an hour and forty minutes of flying time. Think of what you pay on a commercial flight! Would recommend this tour.

Although this was a long day, I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in seeing the Nazca lines. The islands were a nice added bonus to the trip. The bus from Lima down to Paracas was really comfortable and they fed us breakfast. Then, on the bus home from Paracas, the bus fed us again. Also, after we flew over the lines, we stopped off at a beautiful resort (I believe it was called the Hacienda) for a nice lunch. If you are scared about flying over the lines, don't be. I am usually the one freaking out on commercial flights.. and was really nervous about this flight...but I really didn't flinch much on the little plane. It was nice and stable - very little turbulance, just be ready to hold onto something when the plane banks from the left to the right side so passengers can get a view of the lines. All in all, no one got sick on the plane.

I was told by tour companies that it was impossible to do both the islands and Nazca in the same day from Lima, well Viator has them beat!! We were able to fit it all in, although it is a long day, I think 16 hours, it was a great day as well, with time for naps!! The description states that only lunch is included on this tour, but you get two meals on the bus rides to and from Paracas, and the lunch is an amazing 3 course experience at an amazing Ocean front resort in Paracas, the food and view were soo amazing! Have the crab appetizer, still dreaming about it!! The bus ride out there is a few hours, but so comfy, the seats lean back, there are leg rests and yes a bathroom on board. From there you get on a speed boat to the islands and then you go to Nazca before the lunch, but both of these things are not to miss items, and who knew there were penguins in Peru!! Would do again in a heart beat!
