Whist travelling Peru we decided to go take a Plane flight over the notorious Nasca Lines The whole experience was very exiting. A so-called unexplainable phenomenon. Later that day we went on an archaeological dig in the same area & was told from an local well versed in his local culture & history that the lines where water ways to... More

We weren't certain if we should go and see the mysterious Nasca Line.. but our decision to go was rewarded by the most amazing experience. Our biggest tip, take a camera with a zoom lens, as that is the best way to record the amazing images of the Nazca Desert. We travelled with Air X Paracas.

A great tour. We flew with Aeroparacas (beware of taxi drivers who show you the brochure of Aeroparacas, make you pay at the airport and then tell you that you will fly with another airline "who works together with Aeroparacas" because there are no availability until the afternoon. I insisted heavily and they changed our ticket. We flew... 5 min... More

Be careful if you are prone to motion sickness, the plane moves about a lot in order for both sides of the plane to see the lines. It is the only way to truly appreciate the wonder of the Nazca lines so definitely worth it if you're willing to spend the 100 or so dollars it will cost.

We had 2 spare days in Peru so we caught an 8 hour bus from Lima to see the famous Nazca lines. I was quite dissapointed with both the lines and the viewing structure if I'm honest. The structure is a rusting piece of metal only 40 feet tall (approx). We actually thought the bus had dropped us off at... More

Those 3 attractions are the must do in Peru. Its amazing. We flew with Aero paracas, which was pretty good. Its amazing to see what those people draw on a mountain plateau. I advise you to not eat in that morning, or at most a slice of toast, because you can get really sick due to the plane twists.

Stopped here briefly during a coach tour to view. Small fee payable to climb a tower in order to look down on the lines nearby. Don't know if we were expecting something more spectacular but unfortunately they didn't quite meet our expectations. Glad we saw them though.

The Nazca lines were very interesting, though if you have limited time in Peru they would not be at the top of my list. The plane ride is relatively quick though we were waiting for several hours before due to the heavy winds. The pilot was very patient in pointing out everything and making sure everyone (8 people) on the... More

It was a long trip from Lima by car. It took us an entire day to go there and return to Lima. Our driver did not like running the air conditioning as it uses more gas. The actual tour took about 1/2 hour and was a pleasant plane ride. The pilot was banking left and right so each side of... More
