Shore Excursion - An unforgettable experience

Situated on the north coastline of Peru, Trujillo is small and compact. The historic center concentrates the maximum number of colonial and republic mansions, with major sights such as the Main Square, The Cathedral, and the Urqueaga house.
The surroundings comprising of important archaeological sites such as the Sun and Moon Temples, and Chan- Chan, it is also dotted with excellent restaurants and hotels. Huanchaco is a charming fishing village permits the view of the ancestral totora reed boats, that still are used by the ancient fishermen.


This excursion is very pleasant and interesting. You will visit the most important archaeological sites of Trujillo, which belong to the pre-Inca epoch; the colonial area of the city, a typical village of the countryside. This excursion depends on the arrival and departure time of the ship. In this time you will have time to visit:

 The Sun & Moon Temples (Pre-Inca Archaeological site)
 Huacas de Moche museum OR Huanchaco beach where you will be able to see the Totora reed boats (due to the time, you should choose one of these two options)
 Colonial area of Trujillo. Promenade through Main Square and surroundings
 Citadel of Chan-Chan: UNESCO site considered as America's largest pre-Hispanic mud-brick citadel (Pre-Inca Archaeological site).

A Recent Review of this tour

My group had a wonderful day with Patricia they said she did an absolutely fantastic job. Met them early, with water and snack, (like a mother looking after her children) Provided hand sanitizer, made sure everyone was comfortable with the walking and provided amazing tours of Sun and Moon temples as well as Cha Chan. Filled every minute with an incredible tour. Highly recommend Patricia, a wonderful experience. Thank you Cathy Roberts
