After you are picked up at your Trujillo hotel by your private guide, your El Brujo experience begins with the 1-hour drive northwest to the archeological complex.

When you arrive, take a 2-hour tour of the site with your guide, who will give you all kinds of information about the history and current state of the ruins and tell you about the Moche people, who built El Brujo between the years 1 and 600 AD.

  • Our guide showed no interest or enthusiasm in taking us around the site. His commentaries were rote and banal, and when we tried to take our questions further and deeper, little was coming from him. This tour was a waste of time and money, as was the tour we took with the same guide the previous day. VIATOR should vet its guide more carefully, and based on our Trujillo experiences I will not recommend you to friends and family in the future.
