Full Description:

The adventure starts very early in the morning, around 4:00am. The idea is to avoid the crazy traffic in Lima but also be on time for the Ballestas Islands tour. Along the road there are chances to see some farm fields, beaches and small villages.

After three hours of driving on the Panamerican highway we will arrive to Paracas beach, famous because it is the entrance to the Paracas National Reserve. Here scientists found more than one thousand species of animals. From here starts the boat ride to Ballestas Islands.

Ballestas Islands are considered the “Peruvian Galapagos” due the amount of species of birds and fish around the area, there are good chances to see lots of sea lions, penguins, the endemic bird Inca Tern, seals and maybe dolphins.

After being so close to the wildlife it’s time to enjoy the mysterious and enigmatic Nazca Lines. The ancient Nazca people drew huge figures on the desert. It was a calendar, or just and offering to the gods?  There are many theories about the Nazca lines, including aliens, you can choose your favorite.

"Communicating with Cesar was effortless as he was very prompt in his replies and accommodating with my last minute requests. We had Pablo as our tour guide and Pablo didn’t disappoint. He was passionate and knowledgable of the places we went and thankfully.I’ll definitely recommend this tour to everyone else in Lima who wants a fully guided experience to interesting places like Callao"



"This tour was awesome! Cesar was very welcoming and enhanced our stay in Lima. My girlfriend and I joined another tourist on the night time tour that included the Magic Water Circuit, street food, adult beverages, historic sites, and trendy bars. It was a unique and fun way to get to know the city. Cesar was very friendly and professional. Recommend!"
