Temple of Pachacamac Half-Day Tour from Lima

Temple of Pachacamac Half-Day Tour from Lima

Leaving Lima behind, you'll enjoy a scenic coastal drive along the Pan-American highway. Only 19 miles (30km) south of Lima lies this impressive and well preserved religious compound.

The massive Temples of the Sun and the Moon are known to be the compound's most striking features. Built entirely of clay, an estimated 50 million sun-dried bricks were used in the construction of the Temple of the Sun alone. Excavations in the area continue to reveal further insights into the Moche and Huari cultures that spanned the period from 200 to 800 AD.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

This tour was GREAT! Elizabeth was a fantastic guide. She is very knowledgeable and gave us very good information throughout the entire tour. In addition, she gave everyone more than enough time to take pictures which is normally a problem on group tours. We stopped at all of the highlights on the trip and we even had a few minutes to shop for souvenirs at the site. I was really happy we were able to go through the museum before we saw the temples so we knew exactly what we were looking at once we got there. The quick stop in the Barranco district was a great way to end the tour. *ALSO* I want to highlight how wonderful Elizabeth is. We actually ran into her in Plaza San Martin later that day and she came over to us and remembered us by name and chatted for a few minutes. She is very personable and I would recommend not only this tour, but her as a tour guide specifically to EVERYONE!

The tour was wonderful to see other parts of the city. We had plenty of time to walk up and around the temple with our guide. Enjoyed the day. The tour actually ended up to be 4 and 1/2 hours.
