This was an amazing experience and it is highly recommended !!!!
Great tour, worth the time
The Air tour was excellent but the transportation was very poor. The distance of 210 K.M. which can be covered easily in 2.5 hour, it was covered in 4 hours. The highway 15 was 4 lane and 6 lanes with a speed limit of 100K.M. Tour guide had no knowledge about the tour and did not explain anything about Nazca lines.
Although the guide did speak English, he spent most of the bus ride speaking Spanish without translating what he was saying for the English speakers. The flight over the Nazca lines was disappointing in that each passenger got very little time to see each image. I didn't feel the entire trip was worth the cost.
My son and I traveled to view the Nazca lines from Lima on Oct 4. We were picked up from the hotel at exactly the time we were told. The car was clean and comfortable and the drive was long (we were told that and expected it). Our guide Angelo was nice and attentive to us although he did not talk much except to identify some of the towns that we drove through. The flight over the lines was uneventful with the pilots not saying anything which prompted one of the passengers on the plane to ask whether we will be told when we reached the lines. Then without warning the pilot said to look to the left side of the plane and see the "ballena", then the pilot made a sharp turn and said "now on the right side "the same ballena". This continued for a few minutes with the plane swinging sharply from one fantastic image on the ground to the other. In my mind the turns were very sharp that many of the 12 passengers in the plane were airsick. I don't know that there is another way to see the lines but there has to be a better way. After the plane landed, we once again boarded our ride back to Lima. Angelo was very attentive and helpful to one of the other passenger who was still motion sick. I rate this trip four stars because they may not be a better way to see the lines from the air.
It was great to see the Nazca Lines, pictures do not do justice to this. Our group of nine enjoyed the trip. The flight experience was also nice and the co-pilot explained was nice to point out the various lines.
We wish the guide had talked about the history, or showed a video to give us background of Nazca Lines, as we had 4 hours of van ride.
Overall good experience. Thanks, Govind Arora
The guide and the driver were super nice. Enjoyed the trip.
We were picked up at our hotel an hour earlier than the originally scheduled time. Our guide gave us minimal information as we climbed aboard a bus. We then went to several other hotels for others to board. My husband and I were the only English speakers on the bus. Teh guide would talk for several minutes in Spanish, then say to me and my husband, I will meet you after the flight and you will be returned to your hotel. With my limited Spanish, I determined that the others were on an extended tour. They received information about what we passed as we drove the several hours to the airport. I have no idea what we missed on that part of the tour. The flight was paid for in advance, but we still had to pay an airport tax in cash. It wasn't expensive, but it would have been nice to have been forewarned. The flight itself was short. We saw most of the lines, although a few were hard to find and one - the whale - was impossible to see. A few people got sick on the flight, but were very quiet about it. Seeing the lines was wonderful, but there was a lot of traveling involved and a more informative guide could have made a good experience a wonderful one. Photography was tough, because the lines went by so fast. I only ended up with one photograph. Would I do it again? Probably. I'd do it in a heartbeat if a helicopter ride was offered. Hovering would have been so much easier than the roller-coaster ride that the flight was.
The plane ride is like a roller coaster ride and felt quite sick afterwards. The view is however amazing from the plane, but I wouldn't do it again - definitely a once off.
I suppose it's worth doing. But I wouldn't rank in the top 200 things in the world to see.
