Full Day Bus Tour to the Nazca Lines

TOUR DESCRIPTION

This tour package offers the convenience of flying over the Nazca Lines from Pisco, but reduces the cost by transporting you on a touristic bus instead of in a private car. We will pick you up at your hotel in Lima and transport you privately to the bus station in Lima. You will enjoy a first-class seat on a touristic bus from Lima to Paracas, a journey of three hours and 45 minutes. When you arrive at the bus station in Paracas, our driver will be waiting to transport you to the nearby airport in Pisco. You will save a total of six hours of travel time, compared to traveling to Nazca.

At the airport, our staff will assist you in getting ready for your flight. You will need to pay the airport tax, sign your name in the passenger list, and be weighed. Soon, it will be time for your flight. You will get onboard a modern Cessna Grand Caravan, a very popular type of light aircraft that has 12 passengers and 02 pilots. Your flight will take 90 minutes; 35 minutes is spent flying over the Nazca Lines and 55 minutes is spent flying to and from Nazca. 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 your plane lands in Pisco, we will transport you back to Paracas for a fresh seafood lunch (meals are optional, and not included in the tour) and then you will take the bus back to Lima. When you arrive in Lima, we will transfer you privately back to your hotel.
