Nazca Lines Overflight

This tour is the Nazca lines overflight. Private transportation takes us to the departure place. The Nazca lines cover a surface area of more than 500 square km. of desert between Palpa, Nazca and Pampa Colorada. They represent the most varied types of figures, a bird, an enormous monkey, a spider and a large number of geometrical lines (an aerial view is a must).  Why these fantastic lines were made is still unknown and the mystery continues in spite of Dr. María Reiche’s prolonged investigations.

 

Huacachina Sand Boarding

This is our traditional dune buggy tour. The buggies are controlled by experts while we  explore the nearby dunes and desert. This tour is catered in the sense that it can be a soft trip into the desert with more of a focus on sight-seeing and photography, or it can be an adrenaline experience with speed and big drops as the dune buggy plummets down a dune. The tour includes sandboarding, in which the driver instructs you, however there are some tourists who opt not to practice this sport. In such case you can wait inside the buggy while others do the sandboarding and ride down the dune in the buggy.

 

City Tour – Lima

In the Historical Center we visit the most important buildings and squares like: Paseo de la Republica, San Martin Square, Main Square, the Government Palace, The Cathedral (the main church), the Archbishop Palace, and the City Hall. After we have seen the historical center we visit the convent of San Francisco, which is the greatest monumental complex of Colonial Art in America. It consists of a Basilica with 21 altars, the Convent of cloister, the Profundis Museum that exhibits 11 paintings of Rubens, the sacristy with paintings of Zurbaran and Rivera and way more. This convent is a cultural patrimony of the world.
The tour continues through the most traditional residential areas of Lima like San Isidro Olivar, the Central Park of Miraflores and the Love Park. The tour ends with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean.
