Be careful with Air Majoro. Nasca Lines are great but choose a different airline for your tour such as Movil Air. Air Majoro lured us in with a $60/person offer. Upon arrival, they told us that the $60 ride was on a plane of 12 - 15 people, and there were not enough people for the ride so we had to wait for 2 - 3 hours until the next bus. If we wanted to go immediately, the price was $120/person. They also wanted 12% extra if we paid with a credit card. We paid $240 in cash but there was no receipt. Later we found that all airplanes there were maxed at 6 passengers. There was not a single plane for 10+ passengers. They were dishonest. We recommend another airline or stick with the $60/person option.

Even if you don't want to splurge on a plane fligh its worth just grabbing a local bus (just ask one of the big tour busses headed that direction to drop you off) to the torre. we got to go up the new one that just opened and its t least twice as tall as the old one so you get a good view of 3 of the lines. fun and cheap way to think about the cultures that used to be here!

What an experience! Flew with Air Majoro in July’22, we got the first flight out. Took the plane ride with wife and two daughters 15 and 16. Pilot and co-pilot were really friendly, the ride itself was spectacular but never nauseating. I think if you are the kind of person who enjoys a good rollercoaster ride you will find this perfectly fine.

Was nervous as hell to begin with but as soon the plane lifted off the nerves disappeared and we enjoyed the magic of the mystery that is the Nasca lines.

We almost did not do it - were a bit worried after reading reviews of people saying it is nauseating. I suppose it depends what you are used to. Also bit nervous that a plane crashed a few months earlier with some Dutch people on board. But hey, waking up in the morning is a risk and the planes are landing and taking off continuously. I looked at the pilot and co-pilot and figured for them it is ‘just another day at the office’. I imagine the bus rides around Peru are more dangerous!

We stopped long the South Pan-American highway, paid 6 Soles to climb the tower to view the amazing Lines of Nasca in the desert or figures that were created over 2000 years ago. Also called Geoglyphs. Made by removing large dark stones from surface of the desert and exposing light sand. From here we could see a lizard about 189 meters in length.

The view is okay but there are so many figures the best way to see all of them is by plane which you can take from Pisco for much larger fee of course.

It was designated a UNESCO site in December 1994. You must stop here and see this.

I had never been in such a small plane, I’m a bit claustrophobic and afraid of heights, so to say that I had some doubts going in is an understatement. But I’ve been fascinated with the Nazca Lines since I was a kid, so I decided I had to give it a shot. There are different companies (My tour group went with Alas Peruanas) and flights of different lengths. I was on the basic one for 30 minutes (I figured I could probably put up with anything for that long). I am so glad I did it though. The pilot knew enough of 3 languages to put all of us at ease and tell us what to look for. Most of the figures you approach from each side so all the passengers can get a good look. My plane experience wasn’t bad at all. I’ve gone on amusement park and boat rides that were much more uncomfortable. Just take some deep breaths, focus on and enjoy the view. It’s over before you know it. The pilots seem prepared for everything. A passenger on another flight told me that when someone in her group got sick, they had barf bags on hand. I’m sorry some people suffer like that, but I loved it and would do it again or I would try a longer flight.

Visited Nazca as part of a group tour.
No mention in the "optional extras" that one would have to pay to visit just the lines as I did not want dune buggies or aqueducts etc.
Unusually for me, I forgot to check it out and one cannot just walk out into the desert ,climbing up towers to view, as the town is not surrounded or close to the lines.
The available small bus with guide ,provided for us at a $40 fee per person took us to two towers out along the Pan American and to a museum. Guide was a smashing older chap with good English.

Such a great site and so many ways to see the lines. I went up the viewing platforms and out to the viewing rocks to see the main lines. The history of the lines is amazing and so worth a visit to the museum for more information on how they were discovered and saved.

If you want to see the many many nasca lines do it from the air. They are quite amazing. If you like me feels it is a little too expensive you are able to watch them from a tower wery close to the road. A new a higher one has just been finished (not opened yet in the beginning of January 2020). Might offer better views but if you want to see them properly you have to fly....

Our trip to Peru was postponed for almost two years . Late last year , we heard the border has reopened so we thought to give it a try again . But then Omicron came so we were a bit hesitant to book any trip . I reach out to Mily a while back explaining the needs of our family . (Kids are 14 and 9 . ) Mily was very good and professional to give recommendations. I did not confirm with her until a week prior to our trip though as I was frightened that we might have to cancel again .
When I confirmed our trip, Mily was quick in scheduling our trip, driver, guide , hotel etc

Our trip started at 4:30 am pick up . A big car for just the 4 of us . They brought us snacks since we left so early . Mily sent one of her best guides - Carlos was our guide during our two day trip and he was very passionate about Nazca line , its formation and history . Very knowledgeable and attentive to us . He gave us tips on how not to get dizzy when flying over Nazca and what to look for . His tips were very useful. We learned a lot thru him

Since we were in the sand dunes or walking close to see the lines , our shoes and footprints got the car dirty all the time , but they cleaned it each time when we were out in excursion ( yes We noticed !)

Our family travel exclusively. A good guide is our connection to the country especially if we dont speak the language , it can really makes or breaks a trip . Carlos is a pilot and passionate about what he does and thru him we understand more about the history . We highly recommend get2peru

Driving along the Pan-America highway we came across the Nasca Lines an UNESCO site. We stopped and paid a small fee to climb the tower to get a view of the images. Incredible to imagine these designs in the sand with rocks and stones were created thousands of years ago. It was a great view from the top of the look out tower.
