To say it from the start: the tour is a real day trip. From 4.30 a.m. bus 10.30 p.m. and easily covers 600km by road and is exhausting. But, it's definitely worth it. The Islas Ballestas with good bilingual explanation and care with many penguins and birds. The 2 hour flight to the Nazca Lines, with the pilot circling over the geoglyphs and giving everyone with a right or left turn an optimal view. Also the Huacachina oasis, which is idyllically situated with the huge sand dunes, especially at sunset. My touguide Alfonso Choji was well trained and was able to answer all questions about the history, the excursion and also the political / social situation in Peru. I felt very well looked after and can recommend this tour
We were picked up at our hotel for this trip. Lots of communication beforehand so things went smoothly. We were met at the dock and given all our paperwork by the GetYourGuide people. The boat tour around the island was bilingual and very enjoyable.
We could not do the activity due to the weather situation in the area, but they compensated us with a tour of the Paracas national reserve and it was excellent. Good service, good guide and good landscapes. Very happy.
Joël our guide was very friendly and organized our two excursions well: the boat tour in the islas Balletas and the buggy in the national reserve. We had a great day! :) We highly recommend both of these tours.
Joël is a great guide. He taught us a lot of things, both about the visit and about life in Peru. He arranged our transfer to Huacachina and gave us a good restaurant address. I highly recommend it !
