Full description

Day 1: Lima - Ballestas Islands - Huacachina

Start with early pickup from your hotel in Lima or meeting point. Travel to Paracas, beautiful small town by the sea, on a 4-hour journey. Upon arrival in Paracas, begin a 2-hour boat tour of the Ballestas Islands. These islands are said to be a smaller version of the Galápagos. See sea lions, penguins, birds, and even dolphins up close in their natural habitats. After the boat tour, head to Huacachina, the only desert oasis in South America. Spend 2 hours getting your thrills with dune buggying and sandboarding on some of the highest sand dunes. Then, transfer to your accommodation in Huacachina. Use your free time to grab some food or maybe a beer. Relax after an adrenaline-filled evening and rest up for the next day.

Day 2: Huacachina - Lima

Leave Huacachina and head off to a 2-hour pisco vineyard tour. See how pisco, Peru's national drink, is made from the grape to the bottle and try lots of free samples. Spend the whole day enjoying Huacachina. Catch some sun by the pool or grab some lunch around the oasis for the perfect end to this trip. Travel by air-conditioned bus back to Lima, and get dropped off either at your hotel or the original meeting point.

Fue una excelente experiencia, Sandra y Alex nos recogieron y explicaron el viaje y nos ayudaron en Paracas, en nuestro caso nos quedamos en Huacachina y ahí nuestro guía fue Christian, la pasamos muy bien, fue de gran ayuda, muy amable en todo momento y muy divertida toda la experiencia. El transporte es bastante cómodo y no tuvimos ninguna complicación durante el viaje.

Cool tour if you can't spend that much time in Peru. You can see a lot of beautiful places. Everything is well organized and there is always help. The people at Peru Hop speak great English. Ballestas Islands: super beautiful, you might get a little wet in the boat. Paracas nature reserve: very beautiful. Dune buggies: those who like roller coasters will love them. The sandboarding is fun (if you want a board to stand or skis, you pay extra) and the sunset is simply fantastic. Chocolate and Piscotour: you learn a lot about the history of the Tejas and can make one yourself. You can try pisco wines and pisco and learn how they are made. The products were also advertised but not an obligation to buy.
