Know More about this tour

Your adventure to the lost pyramids of Caral begins early in the morning; your guide will pick you up at your hotel or cruise ship port and drive to the Valley of Supe where the complex is located, about a 3 hour drive. The route goes along the Peruvian coast seeing small villages, agricultural areas and cloudy zones. You will have the chance to stop and take some pictures, interact with locals or purchase something for the route.

Upon arrival to the Supe Valley, your guide will give you an overview of the complex, covering the history and main discoveries made by archaeologists. The first thing you will see when arriving to Caral are 6 pyramids around a central square, next to them an amphitheater and a temple, the religious center of Caral. Your walking tour takes for about 2 hours.

The visit to Caral is a visit to a very powerful society, well organized and incredibly ancient. It was a pre-ceramic society without weapons indicators, without walls protection, without evidence of conflict. They were a society that knew how to have fun, with musical instruments made from condors bones.

After your private tour in Caral, it is time to return to the city of Lima. During the return trip, your guide will stop in one of the most recommended restaurants located across the Pacific Ocean and enjoy a typical dish.
Your tour finishes upon arrival to your city hotel, Lima city Airport or the port of Callao. The client will be dropped off at any of these 2 points previous arrangement.

    This was a fantastic experience. It requires a full day commitment for trip from Lima, but you won't be disappointed. The location is among the most remote I have been to and I have visited sites throughout Mexico and Central America for the past 20 years. I took a private trip. My guide Jesus was superb.

    Caral was interesting but the trip there and back was stressful.

    I left the hotel very early! There were only two of us on the tour so we got a lot of face time with the guide. The site is so very important it's a shame more folks don't know about it! We were treated to a great local lunch spot. It was a day I will remember. Just a final shout out to my guide Jesus ... He was great!

    The tour operator phoned my hotel announcing the exact pick up time. I was picked up on time by a friendly fellow, named Jesus. It turned out to be a tour in a private car together with a another traveller. The guide turned out to be knowledgable about Caral and translated conscienticiously what the local guide had to say when wandering around the site of Caral. Caral itself is one of the wonders of the world. The site is well organized, facilities tasteful and clean, the exhibition very informative, comprehensive. The promised food was acceptable, transportation excellent. A great tour.

    This was an amazing trip to the oldest known pyramids in the world! They predate those in Egypt, Mexico and China. And also predate ceramics and weapons and the Incas. Discovered very recently, only 20 have been uncovered so far but hundreds more exist. The woman who made the discovery was there giving a private tour to a couple of people. To the locals, this is the most important archaeological site in Peru as it is the beginning of their history. Well worth the long 3 hour drive from Lima. Not something you'll see offered as a shore excursion. Our guide, Jesus, picked us up on time and even though the main road was flooded due to recent rainfall in the mountains, he found an alternate route to get us there. Once near the site we were again threatened by road closures so he got a cart pulled by a motor bike which is usually used by the workers to get to and from work and put us in the back of it for the 10 minute or so ride up to the entrance. Wouldn't have wanted to miss it!
