The private day trip was well organized and, despite the extensive program, worked out very well in terms of time. The Ballestas Islands with their rugged rock formations, countless seagulls, penguins and sea lions are a real natural paradise. Then we went on to Pisco Airport, from where the flight started with a Cessna Caravan towards the Nazca Lines. The winding course over the archaeological site is certainly not for everyone, but it will remain an unforgettable experience for me and my partner. Again, our guide and driver were very professional and helpful. All in all, a worthy conclusion and certainly a highlight of our trip to South America!

Our guide was wonderful. She was a walking encyclopedia of knowledge pertaining to our tour in particular and Peru and it’s culture and history generally. She was personable, and a delight to spend time with. She kept the tour lively and interesting at all times, and kept things flowing smoothly from start to finish. Just as importantly, she sensed when to step back and let us enjoy what we were seeing while being discreetly available when we were ready to reengage or move on or needed something. She was a superstar conversationalist and a perfect host.
