We saw these from the air when going to see the lines, so it was fun to see them on the ground. Quick taxi ride, the entrance fee also covers several other local attractions. The 20-ish wells are very interesting with their spiral walkways, right down to the open bottom where you can see the water flowing past. Only took... More

Upon arrival it seems slightly disappointing, a few holes in the ground, but with the right guide, who can explain the fascinating engineering works, this place really comes alive. However, to come without a guide would be dull because there is no signage explaining about the aqueduct.

This is a fascinating site to see. We organised a tour with our hostel and got a private guide who drove us here and to some of the other historical ruins in Nazca. The aqua ducts are amazing, the Incas had incredible vision and technique. The system they created was so effective and parts are still in use today. Not... More

Amazing to these spiral aqueducts in such an arid location. That so many were excavated and the work involved in digging down and lining these holes is thought provoking!

Our guide took us to these aqueducts as part of a Nazca area tour. We hadn't heard of them previous to our visit. They are amazing. Very interesting. You can climb right down inside them to the water at the bottom. The construction skills of the Incas were second to none

Amazing to imagine how long ago this built and the engineering and ingenuity to think of it much less build it. You need a guide unless you have done research on your own. Definitely worth a visit to see this construction.

It is nice to see great ancestral construction and at the same time sad to see that there is no investment in making it truly a touristic place. You have to pay to enter in the area that lacks explanation placards, organized track, etc It is like 'milking a cow and forget to feed it'. In spite of that it... More
