The pick up from hotel was a bit late. That did not matter because the flight then started over 2 hours later. For safety reasons and competitive reasons - on the other hand, you can not say anything. But when it was time - it was a professional implementation. I have a stable stomach and I fly a lot, but the many steep turns that were made to make the drawings look better hit my stomach. And my son too. This has tarnished my personal feelings and sensitive people have to be aware that it is not necessarily good ;-)

It is a long trip going into nazca from Lima but the organization and people disposition to help was incredible.

Flight was great, time was changed at very short notice one evening before. We thought that was bad

Everything is perfectly done. Professional service. I recommend
