Highly Recommend! Absolutely amazing! Very informative and delicious! Our guide Ximena was very nice and personal. She gave us great recommendations for foods to try later and was very accommodating for food allergies and dietary restrictions. It was very fun trying out all the foods, but even just talking to the guides was a lot of fun! Highly recommend!

Great guides and excellent day I travelled with Aymen and Rudi for the tour. They were very professional, transparent and really took care of me for the whole trip. The tour was well-organized and pick-up was on time. The Nazca flight made me so sick that I didn't feel like doing the buggy after in Huacachina. However, I had a great day and it was definitely worth it.

Maravilloso y único! Fue maravilloso, el paisaje, los animales, lobos marinos, pinguinos, aves guaneras, las Islas Ballestas, los enigmáticos dibujos de Nazca con el diferente vuelo en la avioneta, el oasis y el paseo de buggy con mucha emocion. Nuestros guias y conductor Aymen y Rudy fueron espetaculares! Dos hombres muy simpáticos y amables! Alegres y hicieron todo para Que desfrutemos de un dia especial y inolvidáble!

Bestens in Peru angekommen Super schöne Einführung in die Delikatessen Peru's. Für den ersten Tag war es perfekt durch den Stadtteil Miraflores und Citcuito geführt zu werden, den bunten Markt zu sehen und sich durch zu probieren. Rubby war ein toller Guide und hat sein Wissen über Kulinarik, Architektur und Geschichte gern geteilt. Sehr zu empfehlen.

Tour to Islas Ballestas, Huacachina, Ica Aymen and Rudi are so great companions! During the whole trip I never felt that I'm missing anything or that the trip isn't goig great. Both the travel schedule (Huacachina, Islas Ballestas, Ica) and the accompanying friendly vibes were great. Totally recommend

Be prepared for a long day - but 100% worth it This is an excellent tour! We were having trouble finding a single day tour to see the Nazca lines from Lima, and then we stumbled upon this tour option. You get to see a LOT - three different sites, and each one is amazing. It is a long day though- we got picked up from the hotel around 4 am and didn't return back to Lima until midnight. However we likely could have made it back earlier had it not been for poor planning by the tour company (see below). THE POSITIVES: Ballestas island boat tour is so much fun, and a lot of natural beauty. Nazca lines are a once in a lifetime sight to see, so it was truly incredible. IMPORTANT NOTE: You are in one of those 10-passenger unpressurized small planes, and the tour makes sharp figure-8 turns at each pattern (about 15 different patterns in all), so highly recommend not eating before the tour and/or taking motion sickness pills- it can get rough. The tour guide, Choji, was awesome!! He is so informed, fun, easy-going, and made the whole day (very long day) wonderful. You are in good hands with him! THE NEGATIVES: The reason for one star taken away was that we were grouped with two other people who booked the same tour at the last possible minute. As a result, they were not able to be put on the same flight as us for the Nazca lines, and they had to take the flight after us, as a result, a long-day tour was extended by 2+ hours. It affected everything else- we didn't get to eat lunch until about 5 pm, and then by the time we got to the Huacachina oasis until late, so we didn't get to see it in the daylight or have the option to sandboard. This seemed like poor planning by the tour company (no fault of the driver or the guide) and so we didn't feel like we got the full experience of the tour that we should have had, especially for the price point.

Great day with great guides It was my best day in Peru! Got picked up at 04:30 by Aymen and Rudi and they took care of me the whole day! I was a litte afraid in the beginning because I travelled alone - but the two guys made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Balleatas was great - I loved the small Pinguines! The flight over the Nazca Lines was perfect- but you have to have a resistant stomache! After the Ica Oasis we had a perfect dinner at a very nice restaurant and finally we found our way back home! Perfect day with two perfecet English speaking and care taking guides Aymen and Rudi! Thank you so much!!

Great Food, Rich History, Awesome Guide! Ximena was an excellent guide and a wonderful person in general. I enjoyed all the history behind the food, neighborhood and Peru. I am glad I decided to go on the tour even though it was just me. The food was very delicious and a good amount, though I wanted more I don't think I had anywhere to put it, lol! When I'm able to come back with friend(s) I would definitely do this tour or recommend it to others. Gracías por todo Ximena!

"It cannot be better than that !!!!" It was the best and most exiting day of my life!!!! Location from Lima, Peru to Paracas National Reserve to Pisco, Peru to Nazca Lines - PRICELESS. Company - Jacie and Aymen (time spent together - 12 hours) - PRICELESS. On our drive to Pisco (about three hours) we talked and laughed non stop (by the way, we were picked up on time and this time we didn't experience "the Peruvian Time"). We covered every subject that possible and had a very intriguing debate in the car... Jacie had a very extended knowledge of everything that was on our way. It was history, funny stories and legends. I do not know how to compare Paracas National Reserve to Nazca Lines... both places, so very unique and memorable. Doesn't matter how much I talk about it is not going to do the justice. You have to see it with your own eyes, feel fresh air on your skin and have a great company like Jacie and Aymen. GREAT PLACES...GREAT MEMORIES...GREAT PICTURES.... thanks to Jacie and Aymen. Love you, guys !!! Thank you for everything !! You are THE BEST !!! Happy, Lana 🙂
