    Pachacamac
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    It was built in adobe with view to the sea and the Lurin river valley. It was a pilgrimage site for many cultures that developed in ancient Peru. Upon arrival of the Incas, the complex was adapted to become an administrative center, respecting and adapting the local constructions. You can find there the Temple of the Sun, the Acllahuasi, the Palace of Taurichumbi, and the Pilgrimage Plaza, among others. We will also visit the Site Museum to get a better insight and appreciate the salvaged remnants of the area. The massive Temples of the Sun and the Moon are known to be the compound's most striking features. Built entirely of clay, an estimated 50 million sun-dried bricks were used in the construction of the Temple of the Sun alone. Excavations in the area continue to reveal further insights into the Moche and Huari cultures that spanned the period from 200 to 800 AD.

Lots of driving ...
We had a good tour on our trip in January, but didn’t realize how much driving/traffic there would be. From the cruise port to the pick-up spot to the ruins took a few hours. We ended up with a substitute tour guide who recited facts, but didn’t comprehend English well, so conversation and questions were limited. Worth seeing the ruins, but maybe just Uber directly there and skip the tour operator

A hidden gem in Peruvian History
Mar. 2020 • Couples
This was a great half day trip that did a lot to demonstrate the roots and development of Peruvian cultures that ultimately led to the Incan period. We had just enjoyed a fantastic trip to Cusco and Machu Picchu but managed to fit this trip in on our last day and it really did ‘join the dots’ for us. Well worthwhile and again very knowledgeable guide.

A little flexibility
Mar. 2020 • Family
Our flight was 3 hours late and customs was extra slow. We absolutely missed our trip but they scheduled the next day for us. It was a great 4 hour trip and they gave us great suggestions for the remainder of our time in Lima. Indefinitely recommend this as a first activity in Lima.

Great
Such rich history here and the tour guide Mario did a great job at explaining everything. He took me through the museum and the temple. He provided a lot of information that helps you understand Lima way better. Would recommend coming here to see and hear the history.

Excellent look at pre Inca ruins
Nov. 2019
This was afantatstic trip that I through in at the last moment. The museum at the entrace was very interesting and the ruins themselves were very different than the Inca ruins that dominate Peru.
I onluy wish we had had more time to explore the women's palace as it looked very well preserved.

Informative Tour with a Friendly Guide
Jan. 2020
My friends and I booked this tour last minute, and we had a great time. TripAdvisory was prompt with information as to where we should be picked up, and they made sure it was at the closest hotel to our airbnb as possible (only a 5 min walk). Our guide was friendly and spoke wonderful English, and the van that were picked up in was spacious and clean.

Our guide took us through the ruins outside as well as the museum, and she was incredibly knowledgeable. Highly recommend if you have some time to kill in Lima! We got some great pictures with two llamas as well!
