Tour of Paracas, Ica, Huacachina & Nazca from Arequipa?

Does anyone know of any reliable tour companies running 2 or 3 day tours of Paracas, Ica, Huacachina & Nazca from Arequipa, preferably back to Arequipa, or otherwise onto Lima?

Thanks so much for your advice, PeruIsCool! I will definitely look into the points you mentioned.

By the way, do you think that it's safe for 2 young female travellers to get a taxi from Ica to Huacachina? Should we be worried about whether a taxi is official or not?

I think its quite safe to take regular taxis, there are hundreds of young female travellers arriving daily by taxi and rarely ever has there been a problem.

If you arrive by bus to Ica, and you wanted to take an extra precaution, you could take a taxi from inside the bus station: these are official taxis who are registered with the bus company. They will cost about 2-3 soles more. However, its not strictly necessary.

Thanks, PeruIsCool. I'll probably take an official taxi from inside the bus station just as an extra precaution.
