could not believe. easier to see lines with your own eyes than through a camera lens, truly amazing. Flight was fun. best to take flight as early as possible in the morning, we flew at 8:30 in the morning. Must do activity in Peru.

To fly over the Nasca lines is a great experience. On one side its great to fly in a small plane (2-14 seats) and of course to see the lines from this perspective. It was amazing, what to say more... :) In general, I do not think that there are any safety problems. The government closed 7 of originally 15... More

At first the lines seemed random and uninteresting, then the gestalt kicked in and we could see the monkey, whale, etc. Truly an amazing site, and the little plane ride swooping was a treat in itself.

We had an overflight of the Nazca lines and saw about 11 of the figures. There are more, and it was an amazing experience. I would do it again, and I suffer from motion sickness. I really was impressed.

Having read so much about the lines in the past, they had to be one of my highlights of my tour of Peru. I only got a very small sample of them climbing the steps of the mirador which was the viewpoint organised by my tour operator. There I only saw a slim sample of what I was hoping to... More

We were looking forward to the tour after having done a bit of research about the lines.... Our tour was well organised so no complaints about that but the lines themselves were so much smaller & unimpressive than we had expected. Considering the price, I would recommend other travellers to spend the money elsewhere....

Before embarking on the flight over the Nasca Lines, a traveller needs to be aware that the planes are small and the twists and turns can cause those without hardened stomachs some discomfort. Our flight took us over the lines in good weather and whilst it was easy to pick out the designs you do need a touch of imagination... More

Took a 30 mins flight . The flight was really good and I did not experience any problem . Managed to identify and photograph most of the lines from top. I took afternoon flight so there was little bit of haze, but over all an excellent short trip.

the plane ride is awesome but too short. wasnt able to see all the lines as the audio of the plane is so bad that you cant hear what the pilot/tour guide was explaining and pointing out, that bad that even a person sitting behind him can audibly hear what his is saying.

It's a long drive to Nasca(anywhere from 5-7 hours depending on traffic) for a 30min flight to see the Lines. It's best if you make a real trip out of it like we did for 2 days and visit other interesting sights along the way such as Ballestas Islands, Paracas Reserve, and Huacachina Oasis. The Lines can be hard to... More
