Fly over the Nazca Lines
Pampas of San Jose. 25 km / 16 miles from Nasca (15 minutes). Kilometer marker 149 of the Pan-American Highway South
It is a vast network of lines and drawings of animals and plants credited to the Nasca culture covering an area of approximately 350 km2 / 135 miles2. Some of the best drawn figures are the hummingbird, the dog, the monkey, and the long-tailed mockingbird.
The German, Maria Reiche, devoted 50 years of her life to studying and researching the area and came to the conclusion that it was an astronomical calendar. From a 12 meter / 39 feet lookout, you can partially observe the shapes of the hand and the tree. However, in order to appreciate the drawings fully, it is recommended to fly over the area in a small airplane. The Nasca Lines were placed on the World Cultural Heritage List in 1994.

I spent several days with Evelyn and enjoyed every minute of it! She knows not only a lot about the sites which we visited but she also new a lot of nice local restaurants with great food. Moreover, she was very flexible to adjust on the spot the program when asked (of course within the reasonable possibilities). Furthermore, everything was well organized and going very smoothly. Bottom line, great tours in a beautiful country with a great guide!
