based on 10 reviews

The activity was incredible, recommended to all. In addition, the local organizers, Carole Lodge, treated us phenomenally. We arrived early in the morning and left late at night, and they kept our backpack for us all day free of charge, and they also allowed us to use their pool. Highly recommended.

I love the experience. Our guide Luis was the best. They were on time, he answered all of my questions about Peru. Both the driver and the tour guide were polite. I could have asked for a better experience

Everything is great! We liked a lot! Very attentive to everything, facilitating transportation from Ica. Even without staying at the hotel they let us enjoy the pool.

Superb day with an exceptional guide and driver Highly recommended!!

We had a great time! Just the thing for adrenaline junkies :)
