I was very happy with the tour and the guide was excellent. He displayed much knowledge and passion for his job. Visiting Pachacamac is a must in order to have a clear understanding of the evolution of the Incan civilization. The onsite museum is filled with important artifacts and tells a detailed story of the Peruvian people before and after Spanish conquest. Great experience!!

I learned a lot during my tour of Pachacamac. It was a great introduction to my travels in Peru, and I’m glad I went there and learned some history before going on my Inca Trail trek this week. The guide, Jordan is a positive and knowledgeable person. You won’t be disappointed if you book this Pachacamac tour!

Pachacamac is a really worthwhile experience. It’s not far from Lima and a relatively easy means of being introduced to Peru’s pre Colonial Cultures. The Interpretation Centre is really well laid out and I learnt a lot. Jonathan, my guide, was very knowledgeable and meant that I was able to absorb a lot in a short space of time. The site itself is interesting too, but a guide would be needed to make the most of this. A bizarre, and interesting bonus, is the garden outside the Interpretation Centre, making you aware of the rich variety of plants grown and used in Peru then and now. The only issue is Lima traffic, which meant that we were back an hour later than planned. Not a reflection the tour company, just a fact of life here.
