Private Full Day Tour to the Nazca Lines

TOUR DESCRIPTION

This is our most popular tour package, because it is the fastest and easiest way to see the Nazca Lines in Peru. You will save a total of six hours of travel time, compared to traveling to Nazca.

Your tour starts when we pick you up at your hotel at the designated hour. From there, you will take a scenic drive along Peru's southern coast, from Lima to the seaside town of Paracas. This trip takes 3 hours and 45 minutes, and once you arrive in Paracas, we will transport you to the nearby airport in Pisco. There, our staff will assist you in the pre-flight procedures such as paying your airport tax, being weighed, and signing in the flight log.

When your flight time arrives, you will get onboard a modern Cessna Grand Caravan, an aircraft that comfortably holds up to 12 passengers. After an exciting flight over the Nazca Lines, which takes 90 minutes, the plane will land back in Pisco. During your flight you will enjoy a spectacular opportunity to see 12 of the most famous Nazca Lines, including the hummingbird, dog, hands, astronaut, tree, spider, whale, lizard, shark and more.

After, you can choose whether to return home immediately or purchase and eat a seafood lunch in Paracas first.
