Arrived by cruise ship with the Port some distance from the town. Our guide Olenka was their to meet us at the bottom of the gangway. Drive into town to join our speedboat. Thankfully the only one with a cover to keep off the sun. A stop was made to take pictures of the mysterious ‘El Candelabra’. Then cruised around the Ballestas Islands with plenty of time to take photos. Thousands of birds & sealions not too mention a few Humbolt Penguins. Olenka gave a good commentary the whole time. A magical experience.
A short time to look around in Paracas before we boarded the coach (11 people in a 26 seater) & spent a couple of hours touring the National Reserve. Again Olenka was very good with her commentary. Recommended trip & good value compared with ship tours.

We had a cruise port excursion which was supposed to be from San Martin port but we ended up docking near Paracas. The tour company didn’t skip a beat and picked us up in our new location with last minute information. Ballestas Islands were awesome. Could have skipped the Paracas Reserve. We were not sure where to pick up the bus for the second half of the tour but it was figured out fairly quickly. Good information and tour guides were understandable.

Excellent time! This tour started with a group boat tour and then my friend and I were picked up by a private guide who took us into the National Reserve in his car. Manuel, I think his name is. He was terrific. He was patient with my friend and I as we took our time walking on the beach and seeing the sights. We got handed off to tour guides/coordinators here and there, which I didn't realize in advance and at first was a little confused. But the company makes sure you don't get lost and are taken care of.

All the arrangements for the two trips were so efficient. Las adventure even picked us up as we arrived in Paracas and took us to our hotel. Manuel, our English speaking guide was so well informed and answered all our questions with real enthusiasm! We could tell he was so proud of the area, the culture and history. All of our trips were overseen by Joel and he is a brilliant organiser. I completely recommend Las Adventure if you ever visit Paracas!

Well how can i start?
We booked some tours with "Las Adventure", and we never expected such a nice tour. The tour was very well organized, They were very nice and friendly people, Paracas has a nice weather. We were picked up at the port about 9:15. It was nice because we hadn't been waiting for so long. Then we met a nice tour guide who spoke english very well and patiently explained us everything about the Ballestas Islands and the Paracas Reserve. I must say the place was "wonderful", full of birds, beautiful beaches and great landscapes.
We arrived Ballestas Islands at about 10:00 am, we visited "The Candelabrum" or trident, it was a mysterious geoglyph on the cliff. I was AMAZING! to see lots of birds, sea lions... Cute Pinguins... I really loved it!
That's why I really recommend you guys to go on this tour and I'm sure you will enjoy it so much and have such a great time!

Our tour of the National Reserve with Las Adventure was an unexpected highlight of our trip to Peru. The landscape is unique, vast and stunning. Our tour guide, Olenka, was informative and a pleasure to be with. Of the 7 tours we did in Peru, the 2 women I was travelling with and I agreed Olenka was the best guide we had. I highly recommend this tour with this company.

We saw thousands of birds, hundreds of sea lions, including many, many babies, And several penguins. The guides on the pier were a bit disorganised and could have moved us out quicker. But once we got on the boat and got going, it was a great experience.

We were glad that we booked an independent tour when our cruise made its stop in Paracas. We were able to see more within a short amount of time. The visit to the Ballestas Islands was tremendous despite a reduced number of penguins. The boat was comfortable. Our guide Manu made our visit to the Paracas Reserve quite informative. His explanations of the science behind Paracas made for a day well spent! Excellent tour!
