Everything Extra Perfect(EXCEPT)!!
, Jan 2020
Everything went very smooth. Excellent tour guide... Very thorough and knowledgeable!! Always willing to go that little extra to make our group seem special.. Couldn't have asked for a nicer tour guide (Jessica) or a nicer tour!! Worth every penny!! (We enjoyed everything, but the only exclusion was the sandwich we were supposed to receive!!!
An afternoon into the past

Lucas our guide was personable and professional. The tour started with an introduction at the modern museum. There was a good explanation of the pre-Columbian cultures, which are many more than just Inca. We then maneuvered the site by car and foot which was necessary to get it all in (it's huge) and not wear yourself out. We touched the other points of the tour including a short stint on the Pan American highway, but these were really only points of interest drivebys. Overall a worthwhile half day investment to a major archaeological site just a few kilometers south of Lima .
Highly recommend

Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We were hesitant about booking a tour to Pachacamac, but it really rounded out our trip to Lima.

They company supplied a guide who spoke no English. He did not speak a word to us while we were going from place to place to pint anything out and felt if he kept repeating what he was saying in his language maybe wed finally understand him. I would not recommend this tour with this company.

Walter was a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable and very friendly. The museum had very interesting displays and artifacts. The scale of the excavation is impressive. The views from the top of the hill are awesome. We also enjoyed the visit to Barranco, it is a very colorful district. Our guide snapped many photos of my wife and me in various spots with our camera.

Realizamos un tour privado con un conductor perfecto, el guía como todos los que nos atendieron en Lima era todo un experto en la historia preincaica. En Pachamacac tuvimos una buena guía. El paseo fue muy rico y formativo.
