We did it as a three days DIY trip from Lima. If you are short on time there are expensive one day tours from Lima. We took the bus to Paracas and stayed in Pisco, an excellent way to discover Peru without tourists. We booked our overflight with Movil Air in Ica. It operates near new and well maintained Cessna...

There was a walk-up Tower next to the main road that you paid very little to an attendant and you walked up so you could look out over the area with the ancient markings. It was limited to around 10 people at a time for saftey reasons. It gave a pretty good view.

I had seen the photo's before my trip, but in real life they are so much more spectacular. Our flight was in a small, single engine, 8 seat plane. The flight was about 40 minutes. The flight did not go very high so that we could see the lines clearly. The pilot flew us over each picture and orientated the... More

When arriving, try to get a Cessna, 50 - 70 $. The flight is amazing. But if you are angy or easy getting airsick, the trip is a horror. The pilots show you every picture by their own way :-)))

Take an early flight to avoid turbulence. The pilot and guide were great, clearly explaining what we would see and then pointing out the various petroglyphs as we circled them. It is worth reading up a bit about them and the various theories about them before you do the tour.

I was booked with this company and they were great. Very efficient getting us through the airport and onto the plane. A really nice clear, short briefing in Spanish and English. We saw everything and he was very good at making sure we could see what we were supposed to be looking at. It's very fast and a bit dizzying... More

Do a flight over the lines - it's well worth it to really appreciate the size and scale. Some of the figures are a bit faded but the astronaut, hummingbird and tree/hands are particularly impressive. Don't eat too much before you fly - the plane dips left and right so everyone gets a good view, but your stomach won't enjoy... More

We took the helicopter tour to view the lines. It was really bewildering how spread across these were. The astronaut was my favorite since they didnt really have astronauts those days!! I did get a little sick during the tour since the operator asks you to look right and left and they go round and round, so take precautions. Its... More

On our way from Lima to Arequipa we made a stop over in Nazca. We wanted to see the lines ;-) We were not sure, if it was worth it. For us, it was totally worth it. We both liked the observation tower and the flight. To get to the tower, we just hopped on one of the public busses... More

I loved our short flight over the Nazca lines. Some of them were a bit hard to see initially but even just looking at the scenery was spectacular. And wizzing around from side to side in such a tiny plane was an amazing experience
