many people - many opinions. I thought that my 3 weeks journey to Peru over the ocean was worth to do it. Doesn't matter what the other people think about it. When you return home are you sure you will be glad you've missed it? I did it, because I am not sure if I'll be back here again. It... More

The lines are pretty difficult to see, and you only have a few seconds to spot them, so be prepared to miss a few. Also be prepared to feel a bit sick--the swaying and pressure of the plane gets to a lot of people. Overall, it's worth it--short, but a really cool experience.

Not overly impressed with the Nazca lines to be honest or maybe I'd just read too much about them so my expectations were through the roof. We paid $100 each for a 30 minute flight over the lines and to be honest I wish we had just gone up the tower down the road to see 2-3 of them and... More

While it was great to see the lines and figures from the air, the flying could have been smoother. All passengers felt ill, which took away a bit of the excitement. Maybe a bigger plane would have been better.

We viewed these in a 2 seater plane and they are absolutely stunning. Better than the photos. I was worried about the hype I'd read, but as long as you have a head for heights and do not suffer from motion sickness you will be fine. A never to be forgotten experience.

The lines are much more than I expected. We took a plane ride over them in a small four seater which was exciting to say the least. Climbing towers also gave good views but these were almost as exciting as the plane

We booked through edunas tours, an agency in Nasca, and paid 85 dollars. They pick us up and dropped us off at our hotel. We didn't wait at the airport, we checked in and got weighed immediately. The place carried 6 passengers, a pilot and a co pilot. The plane was very smooth, no one was sick and they circled... More

It started good! We just arrived to the airport in the morning without a booking and had to wait a few hours before the clouds were gone. We got a small plane but still bigger than the others, 12 people fitted plus 2 pilots. After seeing 2 figures - the visibility was great and the pilot manoeuvred a lot for... More

We enjoyed our flight over Nasca lines a lot. On the day when we decided to do the flight, the lady owning our hostel in Nasca told us that this day planes won't take off before 10AM, which was really great advice. So before you head to the airport, do the weather check and ask locals about it; it's really... More

Absolutely fantastic experience. However, the airplanes are quite small so you feel like a piece of paper on the air. If you are prone to motion sickness I suggest you take some pills beforehand!!!
