Amazing to see, must be done from the air, bu you could do with 2 flights. One to locate the lines and two to photograph them.

It was a 2.5 hour trip one way by bus from Ica, followed by a wait for 15 minutes at the tour agency before we finally got to the airport. The woman working at the Aero Paracas counter was named Candy, and she was very helpful and friendly so it helped with the wait as I waited nearly an hour... More

Booked our flight over the lines with AeroParacas, we paid 70$ per person in 4 seat plane. Book the tour at the aerodrome should be normally cheaper, pay in cash VISA charged extra 6%. The flight was 30 min, the pilots explained us when to look where to properly and clearly see the figures. If you go by their instructions... More

Incredible! Must fly over. Seeing from the ground is a waste of time. I took air paracas and can not be more happy with the quality.

My concern that the Nasca Line flyover would be disappointing was unfounded. The lines were clearly visible from our plane. The pilot circled each image to ensure that they could be viewed from both sides of the small plane (each passenger sat near a window). While we didn't have an air sickness issue, we wished we had delayed breakfast until... More

For me, the most impressive achievement of native cultures in Peru. While Incas built amazing structures, it was over a thousand years later than Nasca, plus Mesoamerican cultures eclipsed Incas with their grand cities in the jungle. Nasca lines were never eclipsed. No other culture on Earth created such enormous geoglyphs that no one on Earth could appreciate before the... More

My husband has always wanted to see the Nazca lines since his teens, so when we booked our Peru holiday we added a three day extension to Paracas. The bus journey from Lima was an endurance and the return trip a nightmare but the flight over the Nazca lines made it all worthwhile. We flew from the new airport at... More

If you intend to visit Nasca make sure you hire a taxi (who is a guide) and travel to see the Mummies of Nasca. These are not often visited by tourists and offer a unique insight into the life in the centuries before Europeans arrived. Also visit the pottery studio where a family still makes and decorates pottery using the... More

Flying over the NASCA lines is the only way to appreciate how amazing this sight is. The plan ride is a thrill ride itself. Make sure you fly a reputable airline. Pisco is just finishing a nice new airport terminal. Morning flights are best as afternoon heat makes for a bumpy ride. Use caution if you get motion sick. A... More
