This is a wonderful site for visitors of all ages. The guides are knowledgeable and friendly. The ticket office is a bit unorganized if traveling with a larger group, but once that is settled, the tour is worth it.
Bring good walking shoes and water. the sun is strong in Peru, even on cloudy days so be prepared with proper clothing and sunscreen. There is not much shade when touring the site.

Our guide, John Paul, was very knowledgeable and sweet. It was very interesting to learn about the history Peru while walking among the pyramids.

I was looking for a one day tour in Lima and found an excellent option on exploorperu.com that included a visit to the archaeological site of Pachacmac (super interesting and well maintained!!), a downtown tour to the most important buildings and at night a tour of the magic water circuit. All in all a great tour with Pachacamac being my favourite part of it :)

Around 21km from Barranco, though easily reachable by Uber. The museum is amazing, explains everything in English clearly. The site is a bit of a walk, but worth it.

We took a self-guided walking tour of this site and were so happy we did. It is not too far from the city center, but you will need transportation. We asked a taxi driver if he would drive us there, wait for us to walk around, and then drive us back to Lima and he agreed for a pretty reasonable price. There are signs posted at major structures or intersections throughout the site which provide a great deal of information and are numbered for ease of navigation throughout. The site is pretty well-preserved. There were people actively working on the site while we were there. It does include a fair amount of walking. The ground is dusty and a little uneven, so don't wear sandals unless you have the sturdy hiking type (although your feet will still be very dusty).
