Overview
The lost pyramids of Caral aren't as lost as they once were, but there’s still much left for you to discover. Even though it's one of the oldest civilizations in the Americas, this archaeological site is also one of the least explored due to how difficult it is to access. Discover the site with ease on a private tour from Lima, which includes hotel pickup and drop-off, and lunch for added convenience. Plus, you'll receive personalized attention from a private guide, letting you ask as many questions as you like.

Worth visiting for the site, not sure if with this tour operator: This is an amazing civilisation with over 5000 years - the oldest civilisation in America, second oldest in the world (only 300 years younger than Mesopotamia), accommodating more than 3,000 inhabitants. There was no trace of warfare has been found at Caral: no battlements, no weapons, no mutilated bodies. It suggests it was a gentle society, built on commerce and pleasure. In one of the temples, they uncovered 32 flutes made of condor and pelican bones and 37 cornetts of deer and llama bones. One find revealed the remains of a baby, wrapped and buried with a necklace made of stone beads. If you are in Peru, his is a must-see site! Regarding the tour operator: I was picked up at the hotel at 5 am by 2 men (one driver and companion of the driver). As this was a private tour, I was on my own in the back seat, and neither the driver nor his companion interacted with me throughout the trip, unless when strictly necessary (such as toilet break at gas stations). We were stopped by the police 3 times on the way to Caral, and no explanation or interaction was ever given to me. They both spent all the trip chatting to each other in Spanish, totally ignoring me in the back of the car for 4 hours each way, probably not aware of the fact that I understood them. When we arrived at Caral, I was appointed a dedicated site gide (she was amazing and walked me thought the whole site, explaining everything for 1,5 hours). After the guided tour, I was allowed by the site guide to go on top of the hill for a panoramic view of the site and further pictures. I was there for about 15 min, until the driver and his companion called me back, as they were in a hurry to return to Lima. On the way back, we stopped at a gas station for some water and a bag of crips (paid by the tour organiser) - not really a lunch! We dropped off the driver's friend at the outskirts of Lima, and the driver dropped me off at the hotel. In summary: Not a pleasant tour to do on your own, 8 hours with 2 man in a car, who do not even speak to you to explain why we were stopped 3 times by the police. There was a point I started to fear if I was in danger or not. All went well as the site visit itself was amazing, but I would though not recommend getting to this site using this tour operator, as, besides the driving, they did nothing else, and the tour is very expensive!

The archeological site was interesting but not worth the 4 hour drive outside of Lima. The guide showed little interest and didn’t provide adequate translation during the tour. The guides at the archeological site also speak no English- so we had to try and listen to another interpreter it quickly try and read very small translation on a board. We were not picked up in an air conditioned van as indicated but rather a car that had a severely damaged windshield at which on return from site we were stopped by police and a bribe was paid by the guide. There was no break for lunch and they made one stop at a local roadside vendor in the early morning that foreign tourist would not find satisfying or safe to eat (needless to say) we didn’t eat the food while the driver and guide ate breakfast. The snack offered was a bottle of water and a small piece of chocolate. Then the guide got out 45 mins prior to returning us to our hotel and left us with a non English speaking driver. I honestly feel TripAdvisor served us poorly in charging us almost $600 for this trip. I would definitely not recommend this trip to any English speaking tourist.

According to my ticket, I was supposed to travel in a minivan, air-conditioned type, but no... Since my trip was expensive and the private type, I was expecting a little more. I even had to buy my own bottle of water... :/ I was under the impression that I had to ask for snacks (included), otherwise... I don't know... Aside from that, Caral is a very interesting place if you enjoy archaeology, history, geography... it's a must see. Regarding the road traffic, I must add that the driver was really really good, fast reaction time and quick reflexes.

Interesting tour, a long drive to get there but you see a lot of a coastal Peru at the same time , 5000 yo civilisation, there is not many as old discovered out there. Be ready for an Indiana Jones kind of a drive for the last half an hour but isn't it what makes like exciting 😁😁

My Trip to Peru is an amazing experience. The guide Jesus did a great job of explaining the history of the site . He recommended the most visited and top destinations, as well as some exclusive destinations that are rarely visited by regular tourists. I really must consider that the agency fulfilled our expectations and much more, very grateful for a wonderful trip. By Sim.
