You need to get on planes to see these lines from air. There are hundreds of lines including animal and human figures. They are one of Unesco heritage site. Why these figures are designed and who designed them are not clear yet. It is thought that these lines might be created by nazca people between 500 bc-500 ad. The plane... More

The flight over was 30 minutes and despite loving the lines and enjoying the history of them I did feel a bit queazy from the trip over viewing all the lines and figures etched into the desert below. I used peppermint oil to smell to help with the nausea! These geoglyphs are simply amazing and it defies any logic as... More

We took this trip from Paracas (soon 'International') airport, booked through travel agency Ikariy. We were satisfied with how it was arranged, everything was professional. We didn't get an intro up front, directly to the plane, 30 minute flights to the lines, and then 5-10 minutes circling over the lines. I would never do it again, a lot of money... More

The lines are crazy, crazy, cool. You can only marvel at the ingenuity of the builders and the flat out absurdity of it.

The flight over the Nasca lines was a great experience and really interesting. I don't think you can really grasp how impressive these lines are created on such barren landscape centuries ago without flying over them. We went with Great Nasca Tours. Our guide, Corina, was really helpful and responsive when we were making the booking and even surprised us... More

I guess it is the only reason to visit Nazca... and the reason is worth it. Incredible view from the plane and it was well organised.

To see these incredible lines from the air - the Killer Whale, Hummingbird, Monkey, Condor along with numerous other complex figures and shapes, is to have witness something extremely significant in the course of human history. Definitely worth the 8 hour bus ride from Lima - although I understand from the locals that in a couple of months, an airport... More

Not for the faint of heart. Went with 3 grand children . There is a lot of looping and twisting and turning in order to see everything. .But don't be put off . If a 74 year old can do it so can you. Pilots are very competent ( we didn't crash).and I have a certicate to prove I did... More

Having spent nearly two weeks in Peru seeing various aspects of the country (The Amazon river, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Lima, Sacred Valley, etc), we decided to spend a couple of extra days and visit the Nasca Lines. I'm really glad we did. First off, the environment was completely different from any other aspect of the country that we had seen... More

The little town is mysterious and welcoming. Good vibes. Did the flight over the lines, for US$100.00, they pick me up in my hotel, which only cost me 5 dollars. Next day I took a tour to the sand dunes in a safari, saw pyramids, aqueducts, and mommies. Also there is a tour to the beach which did have the... More
