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.
The trip to Pachacamac was interesting and a well done. You really cannot get a good perspective of how massive these structures are unless you visit them. would highly recommend it.
The guide, Elizabeth, did a masterful job of giving two tours: one in English and one in Spanish. She was very hospitable, knowledgeable, and worth the time.
Excellent trip, actually organised delivered Viajes Pacifico. Time changed to 13.45 not 09:00 as advertised but got left message in hotel before I'd even arrived. Same company (again organised via Viatour booking) picked me up at Lima airport. Both occasions courteous drivers and no other passengers. So in essence was a private tour to Pachacamac. The tour also includes visit to Gold museum. Excellent tour guide - spoke good English. Would recommend highly.
I have not expected that the guide would be so knowledgable :):)....He was really nice!!! Everything was so organized...We saw exactly what was advertised that we should see :):):)....we had also time enough to make pictures, to stop anywhere we wanted, to ask anything :):):)..
So....from my side - I would for 100% recommend this tour :):):)
The tour began with a prompt pick up at our condo. We were the only ones on our tour. Sonia, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We felt we learned so much. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Lima.
We were picked up from the hotel promptly. The drive to the site was ~40 minutes. You have to be able to walk up step hills but the tour was worth the hike.
Our tour in November was wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgable from the moment we started our tour on the bus. I appreciate the fact that she stopped at certain points along the tour at the Temple of Pachacamac so that we can take pictures.I also am glad that we were not dropped off at a shop to buy something. The tour was exactly what we wanted to do within the time period that we were told.
The best part was at the end of the tour we had options to be dropped off at the shopping area in Lima, or a restarurant, or our hotel. We chose the restaurant which was excellent. Thank you again. If we travel to other areas, I willl certainly check out Viator for a tour.
This is the nearest tour to Lima to see the type of pyramids and temples built by the Incas near the coast - a different style to what you see in the mountains. You cannot get very close to prevent damage but the guide was informative and particularly the temple of the moon is in excellent condition.
My guide Marta was excellent! There were only three of us on the tour so we received excellent attention. The museum has wonderful artifacts and when you climb to the top of the pyramid, you have great view. I would highly recommend this tour.
