If you have a full day in Lima and you want to see something else, be close to nature, learn about the making process of Pisco and have fun at the sand dunes with the amazing view of the Huacachina Oasis, this is your tour.
The adventure starts very early in the morning, around 4:00 am. 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 is Paracas beach, famous because for being the entrance to the Paracas National Reserve. Here the 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. Here there are good chances to see lots of sea lions, penguins, the endemic bird Inca Tern, seals and maybe dolphins.
After the wildlife experience, is time to go back to the car and drive to the winery. This place is a family vineyard where they produce artisanal Pisco, of course you will have chance to learn and also taste Peruvian Pisco
Continuing with this super adventure, it’s time to move to Huacachina Oasis, the only Oasis of South America, here you can have a local lunch and spend some free time. Also you have the option of doing the Sand Boogie or the Sand Boarding, if not you can chill out at the pool of the restaurant.
After a complete day, full of adventures, sand and Pisco, is time to go back to Lima, hoping there won’t be that much traffic.

"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!"
