Full description

Start with pickup from your hotel in Lima at around 05:00 AM, all depends your location in Lima, where you will board the coach for a 03:30-hour journey to Paracas town. Before getting to Paracas, we will stop to have breakfast. On your arrival in Paracas, make your way to the dock where you will board a speedboat to the Ballestas Islands. During your journey to Ballestas, see the enigmatic figure of the Candelabro, a stunning design drawn on the side of a hill in the Peninsula. There are many hypotheses regarding its origin, some believe it is related to the Nazca Lines but still found no proof or evidence that can define its creation. In the Ballestas Islands, you will see a stunningly rugged world filled with birds and sea lions. You will navigate around the islands at a distance allowed, and depending on the sea conditions, visit nearby caves. Return to the port at 11 am, and spend some time in Paracas where you will have free time for restrooms or a short time to relax. Then, continue to the next destination, Huacachina oasis. Have a small break to prepare for your desert tour; then board a buggy for 1-hour adventure across the sand dunes that surround the water source. Return to Huacachina and have time for refreshment. Continue towards to traditional vineyard and taste the best of the local wine and Pisco or lunch at the vineyard restaurant, then Drive back to Lima arriving and dropping off at your hotel.

The tour was mostly in Spanish, even though I picked English. This was because majority everyone else was from a Spanish speaking country. I was alright with it as I can understand a little bit. Be prepared there is alot of commute time. But the places you see are very good.

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.

The experience is really nice, however I think it’s a little overpriced. Take into consideration that the breakfast included (no more than 15 soles) is just a quick stop on a small local shop on the side of the road. It’s just a take and go, you will have to eat the breakfast in the bus
