What people are saying about Paracas

Everything was better than expected! We tryed the Pisco and saw the vineyard with Jesus as our guide. He explained everything. The tour guide in the Inca dessert with Jamil was amazing, he even took beautiful pictures of us and the adrenaline with the sand car was just wow. They even pick you up with spot clean cars and respectful drivers. Thank you for everything.

The driver (Jorge) was very nice and the car was very nice as well. The pisco sour tasting was kind of fun because the lady Who did it was very nice. Huacachina is ok .... a bit overrated ... the buggy tour with the sandboarding was a lot if fun although there was no sunshine for us due to the rain. It was a nice day.

A very unique place and experience! We had a lot of fun racing across the dunes in the buggy and sand boarding.

Jorge was a very nice guide and the tour was amazing! Pisco tasting and Huacachina oasis were the best part.
