This tour was great. The drive was long, but we had a great time on all the places we visited. The food was really good. Our guide, Erick Flores, was very nice and informative about the culture, food, the places we visited,... Overall it was a great experience. I highly recommend it.
This was an expensive day for what was included. The drive is long, the guide was nice, but not very informative. Basically like a babysitter with no real information about the culture, people, animals, or places we visited. The boats to ballestas island is open air so very cold while under way.
