At the designated time, our guide will pick you up from your hotel in  Paracas town. Then will drive towards to Tambo Colorado in private vehicle. This site was an Inca settlement and was most likely built at the end of the 15th century and was ruled by the Inca Emperor Pachacutec. Tambo Colorado was known as Puka Tampu, Pucallacta or Pucahuasi and its buildings are typical Wary (Ayacucho) and Inca (Cusco) culture influences, have buildings of ceremonial plazas, houses, ceremonial platforms and the main building known as La Fortaleza. It is believed that Tambo Colorado  was used as an administrative/ceremonial and military place to control the main road from the coast to the highlands also this place was to service as resting place for the Inca and his army across the Inca territory.

The site consists of several structure around a large central plaza. The central plaza is shaped like a trapezoid with its largest side being 150m long. The main structure are grouped together in a northern and southern Palaces, plus some ceremonial platforms. Because of local environmental conditions, many of the buildings original colors have been preserved, helping experts reconstruct the site.

I wouldn't recommend this tour because of the cost. This place is about 50 mins to an hour from Paracas. There is a little museum at the entrance and ample parking. Perhaps you can just take a hotel car there instead of paying this absurd amount for this tour. As a traveler, you would have experiences where you feel ripped off. This was one of them for me. On the up side, our driver was nice and our guide was fantastic. He entertained us with details of Tambo Colorado and Peru on the way there and back. But again, I do not recommend purchasing this tour.
