What people are saying about Paracas National Reserve

Thank you to William for an insightful day! It ended up being just the two of us with William as our guide and a driver in a very comfortable car! It was very well organised - we were picked up on time and the day followed well, starting with the boat tour, followed by some brief stops at the National Reserve and ending with sea view lunch (before returning to Lima). We appreciated the insights that William was able to provide and enjoyed the whole day!

Pamela was a good guide, spoke very good English and provided interesting insight on the sites visited, other than suggestions for visiting Lima. Luciano was a good driver and gave a good impression of "Il padrino". Must note that you will spend equal time in the car and visiting, but still better (faster) than going by bus, we drove in a Toyota suv.

Great experience; guide prepared and attentive to our every need Cleaning and hygiene at the highest levels
