Your tour begins with a visit to a pisco vineyard called Bodega El Catador. Here, you’ll learn about the history behind pisco and its varietals. El Catador means “the taster” in English, and this traditional vineyard has been offering excellent tastes of pisco since 1856. The next stop on the tour is an industrial winery called La Bodega Vista Alegre. This location produces 5 million liters of Pisco every year, in addition to a wide variety of wines. On this part of the tour you’ll learn more about modern, large-scale pisco production. Tacama Winery is the final stop. Visitors can climb up to the colonial-era belfries and take in the view of the scenic vineyards.

This tour of the Nazca Lines flies over 15 glyphs that were left behind by inhabitants of the Nazca Desert. The Nazca people built these interesting designs between 500 BC and 500 AD. These pictographs are so large that you can only fully appreciate them from above. To this day, it’s a mystery how these ancient people managed to design such enormous geometric figures with such perfectly straight lines.
