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.
Seemed very disorganised at the start but once we got there was great
This was an excellent tour. It was well organized and informational. We were given lots of time to walk around the site. At the top of the site there is a beautiful view of the city. On side iwa the ocean and the other was the Andes Mountains. Good value for your money.
Excelent side trip. The tour guide picked us up on time (rare in Peru) at our place and had a great command of English. Our driver was terrific, (also rare) especially considering Lima traffic which is unreal and Pachacamac is incredibly interesting and actually historically more significant than Machu Pichu. Great value for the price!
Great tour and cool archeological site. I love the city of Lima - one moment you're walking through its urban heart and skyscrapers, then you turn a corner, and there's a pre-Incan pyramid in the middle of the city. This site is a few minutes outside of the city, but absolutely worth the visit!
A very interesting tour with a great guide. Learned a lot and appreciated the stop and tour in Barranco enroute to Pachacamac. Highly recommend it. Britt
The tour was excellent- the knowledge of the tour guide was very good. He gave good side comments which made history to be understood easier. The group was small what it made interaction easier. recommended
We were incredibly satisfied with Ursula, our driver and our tour of the Temple of Pachacamac. What a fascinating place. We do feel you would get a lot more business from cruise ships passengers if you would list name and address of the hotel pickups in each major city. We spent a lot of time and energy--trying to find this out.
Our guide spoke excellent English.The tour of the temple and surrounding areas was truly educational and enjoyable. I would recommend for anyone who has a half day in Lima to learn some culture. Just make sure that you have your climbing shoes on!
Excellent tour of Pachacamac. Very well organized and tour guide provided very good explanations and cultural significance of the sites.
Our guide was punctual, friendly, and had excellent english. Our tour of the temple and surrounding areas was truly educational and enjoyable. I would recommend for anyone who has a half day in Lima to learn some culture!
It was interesting to see outside the tourist areas of Lima on the drive to the archaeological site.
The tour stopped at the arts district of Barranco on the way to the site which was good to see the Bridge of sighs, a tourist site in the city. The actual site was interesting but a lot of the ruins are in quite bad condition. If you have a free morning in Lima you might as well go and have a look at it. Also the tour runs longer that it states so keep that in mind if you have organised something for the afternoon.
