What people are saying about Ica Region

This probably was one of the best day tours I’ve done full with many amazing activities - on the way to islands you’ll stop to see Candelabra of the Andes, after heading to Ballestas islands where we saw many sea lions, pinguïns, pelicans and amazing shower of cormorants. If you’re lucky, you can also see dolphins ( which we did). In this tour you also get to taste different sweets, pisco and wines, adding some great lunch to it. Sandboarding and cruising around in a sand buggy in Huacachina in sunset was the best ending of tour you can imagine! Just a heads up, tour is long, so dedicate entire day for it ( stared at 5 am and ended at 10:30 pm), but really worth it!!! Thanks to Sergio for guidelines :) and the driver who had to be awake while we all were napping.

Full day, long way, but it is worth it. A bit less explanations in English, as we were only tourists non Spanish speakers. We enjoyed the sceneries and activities. Lunch/dinner was not so delicious, on other hand it didn't spoil the day.

Bonita experiencia. Buen ambiente, comunicación clara, y buena disposición. Solo un problemilla con el carro pero se solucionó sin mayor problema. Genial el desierto, Huacachina y el paseo en lancha.

This was a really fun day! Well worth the cost and early morning start to see some highlights of the south coast with everything organized smoothly for you

Really an awesome day. The boat tour, the buggy and the oasis are just splendid. To do absolutely!!!
