Stop At: Pachacamac, Autopista Antigua Panamericana Sur km 31 Close to Lurin, Lima 16 Peru

You will spend the first portion of your tour visiting Lima's largest pre-Colombian archaeological site, the Ruins at Pachacamac. The complex, which extends for over 500 hectares, was once a very significant ceremonial site for the late Incan Empire. As you tour with a local guide you will have the opportunity to stretch out your legs a bit with a 20-30 minute hike up to the Temple of the Sun; allowing for some breath taking views of the Lurín Valley and Pacific Ocean below (for those who prefer a tour with minimal walking you can admire the view of the temple from our private transportation.)

NOTE: If the tour is booked on a Monday, a substitute overview tour of Miraflores and Barranco will take the place of the Pachacamac Ruins as they are closed on Mondays. The tour then proceeds to the Hacienda as noted in the tour itinerary.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Casa Hacienda Los Ficus, Parcelala, Av. Buena Vista 2, Pachacamac 15823, Peru

Following our visit to the ruins at Pachacamac, we'll will head over to the neighboring Hacienda; there we will be met by one of their friendly guides who will take us to meet many of the beautiful horses that are kept on the premises. Afterwards we'll sit back and enjoy a fantastic show featuring demonstrations by the Peruvian El Paso Horse and traditional Marinera dancers. A complementary pisco sour and appetizers will be served during the exhibition as well. Once the spectacular has finished you can even mount your own El Paso horse for a short ride and a very memorable souvenir photo.

For the final portion of this tour you will find yourself sitting among the beautiful surroundings of the Hacienda as you enjoy a deliciously prepared lunch consisting of fresh ingredients picked fresh that day from the property gardens.

We would definitely recommend this tour. We really enjoyed our time at the Pachacamac Ruins. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable. The tour was paced to our interests and needs. We were given a tour of the hacienda before the El Paso Horse Show. We were given an opportunity for a brief ride on one of the horses after the show. The hacienda itself was beautiful and everyone involved worked hard to provide a fun and relaxing day.

This tour was amazing through Integrity tour company. The guide Sergio is so knowledgeable about all Lima topics, current events and history. The horse show at Los Ficus was most impressive. Alejandra was great with the horses and the hacienda was super relaxing with great food and entertainment!
