37 reviews | 370 travellers
The excellent guide and driver, super friendly and open at all times to any explanation. I wasn't very interested in this excursion, but then I loved it, very interesting. I recommend it, essential to know the origin and history of Lima and the different pre-Hispanic cultures.

Pachacamac Tour

After picking you up, we'll depart from downtown Lima and head towards the Lurin Valley. Here we'll visit the pre-Inca ruins built in honour of the god Pachacamac, creator of the universe according to the ancient Andean peoples.

During our 30 minute tour, we'll step into the history of the Andean civilization and discover what the daily life of the Moche, Huai and Inca cultures was like. As we tour the impressive Pachacamac Citadel, we'll learn all about its famous oracle, whose fame made the area even the most important ceremonial centre for the Inca Empire.

We'll approach the Temple of the Sun remains, built by the Incas from thousands of adobe bricks. From its summit, you'll have the chance to see the wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean, the Andes Mountains and the esplanade where the ruins of this centre of worship lie. We'll also see the main archaeological remains of the citadel at Acllawasi, a sacred place where the virgins lived who were sacrificed every year as an offering to the Sun God.

The tour will end returning to your hotel in Lima after 5 hours.
