    Ricardo was fantastic! He explained everything to us on the way way there as far as the periods of history all the way back to 12000bc. He set the framework and then built on that once we arrived at the site. His English is great which helped because our Spanish is very limited. He also gave us a ton of advise on what else to do in Lima and where to eat. We were very happy we chose this tour and got Ricardo as our guide and Victor as our driver. They did a top notch job!

    We booked a morning tour of this temple as we had a late flight that night and thought this was a good way to wrap our our time in Lima. We could not have been more happy with our choice. This temple is a sight to be seen with amazing history and sights. Our guide was highly knowledgeable and engaging.

    It was amazing. I had Gabriela as a tour guide and she spoke English and Spanish. She knew everything she was talking about. She helped me with getting other tours. Very interesting tour, highly recommended. This was my first time in Peru..

    The guide was punctual. Along the way, he gave me a lot of information concerning the city, the history, etc., in addition to the relevant information of the tour. He was enthusiastic and committed to his job.

    These ruins are impressive and quite close to downtown Lima. The museum was informative and not overwhelming. Definitely recommend a tour with Gaby to explain all the details of the museum and the ruins.

    It's an experience I've never had before, just seeing the buildings that are left standing, how they have built their walls. To think there is still so much more to unearth. The tour guide was very knowledgeable on everything. A tour that is a must to do whilst in Lima. Thank you for the experience.

    Well worth visiting Pachacamac it’s about 40 minutes from Lima. I was picked up from my hotel. Many parts of the old building’s walls have been relayed which helps you to understand the fine detail that was originally , many areas are still in original condition so you get a better idea of the work being undertaken. You Walk to the very top of what was the Sun Gods temple.

    Had a great day and really enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was kind enough to try to speak a bit of Spanish with me as I'm trying to learn the language. He provided all of the information in both Spanish and English. I could have stayed for hours to read and see everything.
