Ballestas Islands Group Tour from San Martin Port
"We absolutely loved this tour! We had no idea that we would see so many birds and sea life. We were on a cruise and we were picked up where we disembarked from the ship. Everyone loved this excursion. It turned out that it was one of the highlights of our trip. It's definitely a "must do"."..."

Ballestas Islands
"This tour was excellent. There were four of us, and we were almost certainly the only English-speaking people in the boat. Everyone else was local. The guide was bilingual and made a special effort to come over to us and explain things. The boats are all pretty much alike. Don't pay big bucks for special "excursions." Two of us purchased our tickets in advance, but two in our group bought tickets on the spot (slightly higher price, but not much.) The entry fee to the national park (paid separately from the tour price) was about $6 USD per person. The tour lasts right around two hours and that's plenty of time. All the boats are out there together. Paying more does not get you a better boat or a better experience or evern more time. There was one boat right next to us that was filled with people from our cruise ship who bought the ship's excursion (at a whopping $165 pp). They boarded at the same time we did and came back to the pier at the same time we did. This was one of the best tours we've ever taken considering the price. Massive numbers of sea birds, dozens of sea lions, just excellent. We were very lucky in that the water was calm, so the ride was smooth and pleasant."..."

Paracas National Reserve Private Tour
"The driver and guide arrived on time and a clean air condition car and we had a private personalized tour through the reserve. We even had time to stop and have lunch at the fishing Village. We saw some young flamingos and took tons of pictures wherever we wanted. I wish we could have squeezed in a quick visit to the candelabras Nazca line that would have made the trip even more perfect."..."

Very friendly and helpful people, and the guide Naudy was a great, funny guy who is a photographer as well so helps you take a lot of memorable pics. The views are amazing and it’s so quiet out there: no other people to be seen. Seriously, you don’t want to miss out on this one!"..."
