We should fly at 8 in the morning, but the weather was foggy so we had to fly some hours later. The fly was quite short, about 30-40 minutes and very animated, because they have to change direction repeatedly to show the lines at both sides of the plane. must see.

The flight lasts about 30 minutes and will pass each of the most important 12 geoglyphs twice; once on the right and once on the left. I think the plane goes up about 2000 feet and there are some sharp turns. The lines themselves are what you see from any picture, but there is something cool about seeing them in... More

Heading south to Nazca on the Panamericana, you will find the Nazca Lines spread out across an open desert plain. Matter of fact, one of the figures (the iguana). Was cut in two when the highway was put in. Not only can you see the Nazca Lines by plane which I highly recommend, but there is a tower by the... More

One dream that my husband had since he was a child was to see the Nazca lines. They are every bit as amazing as one can imagine. We took one of the small planes and flew over the lines for a bit over an hour. The guide pointed out all the drawings to us and we loved it.

I wanted for so long to go and see the Nascar lines. The flight made me feel a bit sick, we did not have the best window view as the other couple did. Although we paid a bit more. I was promised a english speaking co pilot, but oh no. The lines were smaller than i had imagined. i would... More

The trip from Lima to Nasca was long ( 8 H) but safe and confortable with a Cruz del Sur Bus. With a helpful driver and guide from the hospedaje, I had no problem to book a flight with AeroNasca, arrive and immediately get into the plane. You are not allowed with backpack, maybe only a small purse, and of... More

The building at the aerodrome is bustling with 6-7 companies trying to sell you a flight over the lines, the flight itself can be a bit bumpy as the small aircraft are easily affected by light winds so this trip is not for those who hate flying. The pilots were very knowledgable and friendly, we were given headsets so we... More

We booked the tour with AeroNasca through Desert Travel in Ica. The connection to Nasca from Ica was included in the package, the waiting was a bit long for our flight. The waiting room is confortable and you can watch some historical videos while you are waiting. The plane looked new and the pilot and co-pilot, speaking both english and... More

What you see from the aircraft is much different from the pictures you see. The professional photos are taken with the most high end cameras on the market so what you see is much different than the pictures and the pictures you may be able to take. Our tour guide gave us two very good tips to get the most... More

We booked the tour to Nazca Lines with the tour company NazcaFlights.com and the tour included transportation with an English speaking guide. You're dropped off at Pisco Airport, which is undergoing expansion construction. Be prepared to wait. If morning tours took off late, your tour will wait. Waiting area was small due to the construction and there's not much to... More
