    It was thoroughly enjoyable at both destinations. The Sandboarding was thrilling and the sunset was simply gorgeous. Ballestas Island was a good insight to how mother nature provided mankind with economic opportunity.

    What an incredible day! This was a packed day of efficient adventure throughout some of Peru’s amazing and unique towns. Our guide Saul made the trip even better with his general positivity, vast knowledge of the areas and culture, and his willingness to help us however we needed.

    It was extremely good! I was the only one on the tour, and even given that, there was no awkward dead space or a dull moment!

    To start with, the food was fantastic, each meal was delicious and different and I learned so much about Peruvian cuisine.

    Beyond that I learned so much about Peru, from murals to clinic to surfing to housing. This your had it all!

    This tour was awesome. So many adventures in one day. On the boat we saw thousands of birds flying in formation, dolphins, sea lions, seals and best of all penguins walking around! At the oasis our guides arranged for a last minute dune buggy ride where we had some laughs and got beautiful pics. The finale was the plane ride over the Nazca Lines which was amazing. Seeing pictures is one thing but flying over this phenomenon in person was unforgettable. Without our guides Aymen and Ruddy the day just wouldn’t have been the same. Every step of the way they took full responsibility of us. They communicated in Spanish for us and were dedicated to setting exact meeting locations and times after each event. Being non Spanish speakers and first time travelers to Peru we were immediately at ease. With a full day tour we had a lot of time to get to know each other. We shared family stories and made a friendship we won’t soon forget. Aymen and Ruddy had such knowledge of the area and Peru in general we really did get an amazing insight into the Peruvian culture. Thanks for a great experience 😊💕🇵🇪 !

    We took a half-day walking tour (Plaze de Armas, Convento de San Francisco, the Palace, the Cathedral, Las Nazarenas,Larco Museum, the Church & Monastery of Santo Domingo. The other part of the day we went to Miraflores where you can find the Huaca Pucllana. Miraflores is the financial district where you are surrounded with high-rise apartment buildings/condominiums, high-end boutiques and shopping malls as well as 4 to 5 star luxurious hotels/apartments. In the evening to the artsy town of Barranco. Here you find a variety of restaurants, cafes and jazz/piano bars. What is interesting in Barranco is that historical buildings as well as estate residences were preserved on the surface but the interiors were all renovated to modern architecture.

    I went on a tour with John- he was fantastic! We walked all over the historic center and enjoyed everything from chicharron to anticuchos to chifa, including a stop at a beautiful local market to sample a bunch of different fruit. Had a wonderful time and would highly recommend if you are interested in the history and local culture of Lima.

    Our guide Manuel and our driver picked us up from our hotel in Miraflores early at 4:00 am. It's quite a long ride to Nazca, however our car was quite spacious and our diver was smooth. Manuel is a fantastic guide and very knowledgeable. We learned many things from him from pre-Columbian Peru to it's modern history and Peruvian geography. The experience at the Nazca airport super smooth thanks to Manuel having per-arranged everything prior to our arrival. He explained all of the hieroglyphs before our flight as well as the history of the Nazca people. After the flight we had lunch and had a fantastic ride at the sand dunes at Huacachina Oasis. Overall great way to experience the Nazca lines via day trip from Lima.

    This was one of our absolute favorite experiences during our time in Peru.
    Carlos was a fantastic driver (you have to be aggressive in Lima) we had the whole trail to ourselves.

    Fantastic experience. Worth every penny for sure.

    Lovely mourning of walking around Lima discussing culture and stopping in to various local spots to eat. Wide variety of dishes, drinks, and snacks, that serve as a great introduction to Peruvian ingredients and cuisine. Would recommend doing it immediately upon arriving to Peru so you can utilize what you learn when ordering in the future!

    We are so happy we picked Peru Hop as one of our transportation methods around Peru. Their guides were very helpful and they are very responsive through WhatsApp and Facebook. No issues booking through their website either. They picked us up from our hotel in Lima and after the picked up the test of the passengers we went on a 3 hour ride to our first stop: Paracas. There they took us on a ferry ride to ballestas islands . The Peruvian Galapagos”, the islands are home to thousands of birds and mammals including penguins, sea lions, Inca terns, pelicans, and dolphins. We also took a good glimpse of The Candelabro”, a huge geoglyph in the form of a candlestick found on the northern face of the Paracas peninsula. We then proceeded to Huacachina, a desert oasis and tiny village just west of the city of Ica in southwestern Peru. This place is home to the biggest sand dunes in the continent where you can do activities such as dune buggy and sandboarding. We enjoyed sandboarding so much. First time doing it! We spent the night in Huacachina at a hotel we booked and then the next morning met the rest of our hipsters at our meeting point, and took a ride to our next destination, Nazca, where we took a small plane ride over the nazca lines. The trip included all activities here mentioned, except for the taxes at the airport that were not included. Then we rode back to Huacachina, where we had to wait for the larger bus to take us back to Lima. They were kind enough to drop us off at the airport entrance to take our flight back home.

    The tour was absolutely wonderful. The guide and driver were both fantastic. (I'm horrible at names and even though I asked several times I can't remember. )
    They customized the tour for us. I asked about going to the beach and they made a special stop so I could go to the water. We walked through a fish market and saw the biggest pelican we have ever seen.
    You could tell our guide loved her job and the city. She told us lots history of the area and different things about the culture of Lima. The church and catacombs were definitely worth seeing. And the museum was amazing. Loved that it was in chronological order. And the resturaunt at museum was fabulous. Loved that reservation for lunch was already made.
    Driver was wonderful. He told us lots about tge different areas of city as we drive through them.
    If you want a comprehensive tour of Lima, this is it. You will learn about the city.
