    SO MUCH FUN!! This is a great experience! My husband and I had a blast. The scenery is so beautiful, like nothing we have seen before. The guides were great and our driver was amazing. He was wild and fast but we felt safe. His name is Alex and he is the best! The sand boarding was so much fun and the sunset was beautiful. We highly recommend this experience!

    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. Miraglos was always there to facilitate your rideback from dropoff point by a private taxi ( included in booking). Highly recommended tour.

    Recomendado. Es un tour libre pero el guia lo toma muy enserio como si fuera un servicio con un precio alto; no por tantas comodidades sino por lo curioso y entretenido, lo que resulta muy buena experiencia. No es para tomarlo si el plan es confort porque es caminar. Pero es para obtener un honesto panorama cultural de la ciudad Lima.

    It wasn’t what I had expected but was a good experience once on the bus. The pick up directions were incorrect. There was no NVK cinema ticket office. There was no signage at all for the bus stop. After asking several locals we finally found where to meet. Good thing we initially arrived an hour early. The tour was narrated by an actual person instead of a prerecorded dialogue. However, they used a poor quality speaker system instead of headphones. Could not hear or understand much of the descriptions. Spoken first in Spanish then English. The highlight was an actual off bus tour of the Lima Cathedral.

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.

I had the most amazing experience on this tour. Aymen and Ximena were exceptional. Received a warm welcome from pickup(Aymen even opened car door and attentive). They were very engaging and made me feel so safe. Ximena was not only knowledgeable, but also very passionate about sharing Peru 's history and culture. What a great way to explore Lima and couldn't have asked for more.

Book and enjoy! Pick up to drop off was a safe and enjoyable experience. Took visiting the sites to a level of just view and enjoy. Having a personal tour guide and a small group could not have been better!

Great mini day trip out of Lima. Our guide, Jordan, made the experience much more exciting. He’s very knowledgeable, friendly, and kind. This tour was well worth it!

We had a lot of fun. Luis and his mate were great guides.
