    Getting up at 3am to get picked up from your hotel and get dropped off at a different bus company that operates to the town close to ballestas islands. The bus was good since it had a huge reclinable angle. After a few hours I was dropped off at the town and a guide picked me up and dropped me off at the pier for ballestas island. The island trip was really good and get picked up once after and get dropped off at the airport for nazca lines. The airplane ride induces nausea in people so beware but it really is worth it to do it once. After that get picked up and eat a late lunch. Hang around for a few hours and get back onto a bus that drives you back to lima

    This is a 16.5 hr tour beginning with the most deluxe coach (it is beyond a bus) ever experienced. 4 hrs from Lima to Paracas/Little Galapagos. Tour representatives met me at every location and individually got me to the next location without fail. There was some down time in Paracas after the boat ride to see the animals and there is plenty of shopping, restaurants, and coffee available close to the tour office. I would do whatever I could when booking to be sure you are NOT sitting over the wing on the plane over the Nazca Lines. Your camera angles are compromised and the lines are somewhat difficult to decipher -- you need as much viewing thru a window as possible -- ask to be seated away from wing area. And be sure your agent gives you a map of the Lines as you will see them in order -- the lady behind me told me what was coming next -- I didn't get a map till we landed! Little to no shopping at the airport so get all souvenirs in Paracas, An exhausting but delightful day!!! Kudos to all my "handlers".

    It was a very long day as expected with mainly driving/boating. You will be in a 10 seat airplane and have 20 seconds to look for the Nazca Lines and take a picture if your lucky. You will not have an opportunity to see all the lines. Wear a nose/mouth mask on your journey to Ballestas Islands because the bird droppings really stink! You are also in a small boat with no bathroom or overhead so watch out for bird droppings. Basically you are paying for the transportation service and the plane and boat people are your guides.

    We really liked the Ballesta Islads, Nazca lines were good too.

    Wow, this was a great experience that I really enjoyed. One important word of caution, if you get motion sickness really consider whether this tour is for you. I have an iron gut and I was thrilled as the small plane hard banked right and then left so that we good look DOWN onto the lines through our windows. A few passengers were not so happy and the tour does not STOP - thankfully.

    Fantastic tour! Saw 2 bull sea lions fighting just like the nature shows on television and although the water was pretty rough still managed to get some great pictures! I've wanted to see the Nazca Lines since I first read about them as a 10 year old and was impressed and awed. Definitely worth it!

    The Nazca Lines are a must see if they have not been destroyed recently. The pilot and the co-pilot of the small plane worked diligently to be sure that the pictographs were visible on both sides of the plane, even if it required some tight turns. The Ballestas Islands boat tour was an unexpected delight and offered quite a view of the various birds and other wildlife found on the islands. Overall, the tour was well organized from start to finish, including an excellent lunch.

    I would suggest not to sit people on the back of the plane. The flight for two of us was so bad that we did not care about these lines. The other people on the plane were just fine.

    I liked it a lot especially when the pilot was trying to draw the Nazca Lines by airplane wing.

  • 03-Nov-2017

    This isn't worth it. It's a long day and honestly, you barely get to see the lines, they are really faded and the plane flies over it rather fast, the pilot is the tour guide, so they really didn't give good information/history. I honestly wanted my money back, since it's so expensive and I do excursions all the time and generally love them.
    If you do decide to do this make sure you take motion sickness pills at least an hour before the plane ride over Nazca, I did, but most of my plane was getting sick!
