Pachacamac is a really worthwhile experience. It’s not far from Lima and a relatively easy means of being introduced to Peru’s pre Colonial Cultures. The Interpretation Centre is really well laid out and I learnt a lot. Jonathan, my guide, was very knowledgeable and meant that I was able to absorb a lot in a short space of time. The site itself is interesting too, but a guide would be needed to make the most of this. A bizarre, and interesting bonus, is the garden outside the Interpretation Centre, making you aware of the rich variety of plants grown and used in Peru then and now. The only issue is Lima traffic, which meant that we were back an hour later than planned. Not a reflection the tour company, just a fact of life here.
Jessica and her driver (forget his name) were lovely people. She was very knowledgeable and her English was spot on. We learned a lot about the pre-Incan site which was new to us. Caral itself was magnificent and the land around it very beautiful. The tour included breakfast (basic but ok) and lunch which we had a fabulous local place. The food was fresh and delicious. My wife was ill from the previous day and they stopped when she needed it. Would highly recommend this tour.
Nicolas gave us so much local information and history, that we relied on it for the rest of our trip in other locations. He took us to several interesting places, never rushed us, always answered our questions. He bought us an authentic churro and took photos of us. Gracias, Nikolas!
My 5 star review of John⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Awesome guide and tour. Enjoyed the history and touring the churches. Lots of great information about the history of Limá. John was excellent! Thank You! Timothy from Texas USA
So enjoyed our journey! It was the best! Our guide was the best, as was his associate. Being in my electric wheelchair, they helped me get to see everything. Certainly the best. Recommend them to all!!
