    This was a gr8 tour. Cheers to guide Miraglos and driver Viktor. Miraglos was good at time management and engaging the group. Be prepared for a long day as these places are far from Lima. We were picked up at 4.50 am by a private taxi (included in the booking) and then transfered to the van. The van seats 15, bit we were only 7 tourists, so it was comfortable. The tour of Ballesyas islands is gr8, u see the island rock formations and some penguins as well. Lunch is elaborate and sumptuous at El Catador, where u also engage in wine and pisco tasting. You will then proceed to Huacachina oasis for sand buggy and sand boarding. This is a gr8 adventure in the dunes. Viktor was gr8 driver and drove with caution and safety.

    It is a long day, but well worthwhile as a lot is packed in. I was really lucky as I was the only one on the tour that day so had Choji, my guide, to myself. His English was excellent and he was a really interesting guide. He covered not only details about the sights on the way but also happily discussing pretty much anything about Peru that I wanted to know. Great to get out of Lima and see something of Peru. Trip to the Ballestas Islands was memorable - getting up close to the sea lions and birds. Desert and oasis impressive too. Sand buggying very much like a roller coaster. Lunch and tasting at the winery were good too. Our guide there was really informative and funny. Also very generous tasting session of eight different piscos. A well put together tour.

This tour was wonderful! We did not have a lot of time in Lima but we wanted to get in as much as we could. Luca, the tour guide, was wonderful. Kind, sincere, caring, extremely knowledgeable, and willing to entertain all our questions, take pictures for us, asked us our opinion, and made us feel welcome to his beautiful country and city. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has some time but not a lot. The driver was nice as well and they provided us with a clean van, water, and snacks.
