We met Saolu from las adventures, when we arrived at parracas. From the first moment he was very friendly and polite. He also helped us to find our hostel. We decided to book a tour to the isla balletas, the shuttle bus to huacachina and also the nazca flight with him. Everything has worked very well. And he made us a really good price. I could write him all the time through WhatsApp and he responed my questions immediatly. He speaks also fluently english. He also gave me a little salsa lesson - it was quite of fun. So I highly recommend las adventures! They are doing a really really good job. You can really trust them.

educational and beautiful. lots of birds, pelican, boobies, terns and more plus seals. just a short ride from the pier plus you have an amazing view of the Candleabra carved into the cliffside. We had the added blessing of perfect weather and animals that were OK with the boat full of people coming fairly close. Absolutely wonderful!

I would not book the tour over TripAdvisor again. I didn‘t have a Hostel/Hotel in Paracas, so I didn‘t know where I should meet for the tour. I went to the office, but it was closed. Some helpful guys on the street called the tour agency, so I got some infos and a guy came to open the office for me. I could leave my big backpack there, while I took the spanish guided tour. I did sign up for an english guided tour! The boat trip itself was great!

Joel was really nice but this was NOT worth the money. He picked me up at my hotel by foot, it was at walking distance from La Marina where you get on the boat to get to the Islas Ballestas, he didn't mention that. I payed him 25 USD for walking with me about 3-4 minutes and my ticket to the tour (you can buy it on your own, and its 11 soles or 3.5 USD), and when I came back from the tour (which is INDEPENDENT from him and Las Adventures) he had disappeared and didn't even walk me back to the hotel (I didn't need it, since it was ridiculous but it was supposed to be included). So, long story short, DO NOT pay for this. I felt really disappointed and robbed. Just buy your own ticket to Las Islas Ballestas!

Dear Gina, I'm very shock after reading your nasty review towards me and my company. I have no word what to think about you after this. You seemed to be a nice person when I meet you at the first time but I was wrong. To have thing clear!... TOTAL SCAM!!! are you kidding me?? The cost of the tour I gave you was even lower that the usual cost for a high season. 11 Soles for a tour to Ballestas?? I'm not sure where you got that. I think you are mistaking between Ballestas tour ticket and Ballestas entrances fee tickets. I believe you still have the entrances fee tickets so please read it again. Two thing are totally different even a 8 yeard old kid can understand that between a tour ticket and a entrance fee ticket. Your Hotel was very close to the Marina Turistica (4 minutes walk) which was no needed to hire a taxi for a less than a minute ride so that was pointless. That day was very busy and it was hard for me to be with you all time. I do know that i offered myself to arrange a bus tickets for you but I couldn't make it due to work. You felt robbed?? seriously? Send me you bank details by email and I wil transferred your 25 USD. 25USD won't change my life and won't make me rich so you are welcome to send me your bank details. I start to belive that you wrote this bad reviews becasue I wasn't with you. I have benn working in this industry for more than a decade and I never met a person like you I wish you all the best...

This tour was a great opportunity to see penguins, sealions and hundreds of birds just offshore in a couple of hours. I loved seeing the 'seal hospital' with newborn seals and their parents on the beach. The driver was able to bring the boat very close to the islands. Our tour guide Manuel (Manu) was spectacular as he spoke English, Spanish, French, and Italian. He has a good sense of humour and gave a great explanation. This trip is great value for the time and money you will spend.

We were picked up timely via private car from Huacachina to Paracas. Our tour guide kindly stored our luggage away and took us to the port for the group tour to Ballastas Islands which was wonderful. We were then dropped off at our hotel in Paracas and later picked up for the private dune buggy tour of the Paracas Reserve which was stunning. We had a wonderful time and would recommend Las Adventure.

My husband and I arrived by bus from Ica and ran into Joel at the bus station. After checking out the company at our hotel, we called Joel to book a tour the next morning at 8am. He picked us up at our hotel, boarding was orderly, a life jacket was waiting at each seat, the bilingual guide spoke excellent English, we were given lots of time to take pictures, the driver turned the boat around when possible so that both sides could get a close-up view and the guide pointed out animals that we might have missed. She also walked down the aisle to answer questions or take pictures. Great experience!
Tip: It can be somewhat chilly out on the water - take a windbreaker. The 8:00 tour is best with smooth water and fewer people.
