5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

This tour was great. We were picked up at our hotel and taken directly to the site. Our English speaking guide told us about the things we were seeing along the way. Stopped first at the museum for the Pachacamac Archaeological site and our guide explained the history of the area and the various groups who had lived at the site throughout history. She was very knowledgeable. After our museum tour we drove out into the ruins. We could stop where we wanted and walk as little or as much as desired. After the tour through the ruins we went to the Barranco district and walked through the tourist area with our guide. It was a very nice day.

My wife and I were very pleased with our tour. The tour leader and the tour guide were very capable, personable, people --- Carlos and Bianca, if I remember correctly. We enjoyed their company and we appreciated the tour. Because of their quality performance, we will not hesitate in the future to take a Viator tour somewhere in the world. Steve

The tour was excellent, but the information on Viatour regarding times was incorrect. Also the local contact number was disconnected. We lost 2 hours of time due to inaccurate info on Viatour. Be certain to confirm directly with the tour operator in advance!

Barranco is fabulous. The Pachacamac part is theoretically a very impressive tour: ancient sand-coloured buildings and pyramids. However, the landscape is also sand-coloured and there is no way to go into or onto the structures, and no display of genuine artefacts. We especially thank the tour operator, who was extremely helpful and straightened out a glitch in the booking.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this March 2018

it was a driver who met us at the hotel. He did not say a word until we arrived at Pachacamac. The driver did not know that the tour included Barranco District.
