These ruins are amazing to see just nestled inside the city. You cannot explore the ruins without a guide, but it is included in the price of your ticket. Our guide spoke perfect English and was extremely knowledgable in everything to do with the site...More

Amazing opportunity to try to understand Peruvian ancient history. A big monument proving their unbelievable building skills while having no modern means. The English tour was excellent!

Definitely worth a visit whilst in Lima. The tour is about 45-60min, only costs a few dollars and you get some awesome pics.

I wished I had read the review before going to this site. Since I am in Lima with local, I did not bother researching, which resulted in rather disappointing experience. When you walk in, you have to wait for a guide. You cannot roam alone....More

I probably would not go to Huaca Pucllana at night. It is in a neighborhood away from the hotels. I felt completely safe in Miraflores at night and in Cusco and in Aguas calientes.
