Lots of fun
Even with no experience in sandboarding I had the time of my life. Anyone trying to do this ask for Aldo and Carlos their great people who know how to have fun.

Highlight of my Peruvian Adventures
Nov 2019 • Solo
I had the most amazing experience with Carlos and Rolando! I felt like we were friends for ages. Our communication was great I had amazing breakfast and sweet treat after boarding the sand dunes. I felt like Rolando really helped me feel comfortable on the board and I haven’t been able boarding in 15 years! Amazing experience and very well documented. Thank you both and I can’t wait to return again with my family !!

One of the Highlights of Our Trip to Peru
Jul 2019 • Family
We (2 adults, 2 kids ages 12 and 15) spent 10 days in Peru and sandboarding/skiing was definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Aldo and Carlos picked us up from our Airbnb in Lima, and were full of great tips and information along the way. We had the sand dunes to ourselves. After a quick lesson, we were all flying down the dunes. Such an amazing experience with a professional, well-organized company. And we loved all of the Go Pro videos that were included. Carlos even took us to his favorite local restaurant on the way back.

Great experience, awesome people!
Jul 2019 • Couples
This was an awesome experience. Aldo was a great instructor and host and really made the whole experience special for my wife and I. We got picked up on time, got to see a lot of cool sights on our way to the dunes, and really got comfortable with the crew before we even put any gear on. The sandboarding itself is a lot like snowboarding so you can pick it up quickly with the great tips from Aldo. The views make you feel like you’re on a different planet, it was awesome when you could see for miles in every direction and you’re the only people out there. If you are an adventure seeker you MUST do this activity. Don’t book with anyone else or you’ll just be crowded with 50 other people on a little dune. Desert Expeditions will make it an unforgettable experience for anyone that goes! Highly recommended

Awesome Experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
My instructor team Abraham and Rolando were great! Carlos picked us up from the hotel. They were very punctual and on-time. They took us out to off-road which was a blast and sand board. The overall team was very knowledgeable and fun to work with. I highly recommend Desert Expeditions your next company to work with if you want a true Peruvian experience.

Great time
The instructor Aldo was excellent. I don't remember the names of the other instructor, but they were all friendly and great teachers. Aldo is an incredible photographer and it didn't cost anything extra to get the videos and photos.

May 2019 • Solo
Been sand boarding for the first time. Aldo, the instructor and Carlos the driver are both friendly, great fun and pretty much fluent in English. Had great local breakfast before and ice cream after. Ask Carlos to give a quick 4X4 experience at the dunes, he will turn the car into a mini rollercoaster. Been more than just sand boarding, sand boarding +

Unmissable!
Aldo and Carlos were brilliant guides - they picked us up outside our accommodation and took us to sample some amazing local snacks before off-roading up the dunes (Carlos is a master of this!) and starting the boarding. Aldo gave us clear, useful instructions to make sure we each got the most out of the trip and looked after us all. Flying downhill in the beautiful dunes is a unique experience and has been by far our highlight of Lima - don't miss out!

Incredible experience.
I don’t normally write reviews that often but the service which Aldo, Rolando and Ivan provided was exceptional. Aldo was the main contact, his English is outstanding and he has all the information and coaching techniques you’d need to go from a complete novice to boarding dunes comparable to blue/black runs in a matter of hours. He’s funny, caring, and really wants you to get the most out of the adventure. Rolando was learning how to coach in our lesson, he’s great and always on hand to help, the majority of the time he was completing demonstrations of what we had to do and filming our runs with a GoPro which you get a copy of at a later date. Ivan is the pilot, he is quite literally one of the best drivers I’ve seen, driving through/on sand dunes is difficult and technical but he did it with ease. While all the time we felt safe and having a blast. All in all, I feel you would be missing out on a great experience if you decided not to do this if you have time in Lima. Definitely a highlight and an experience of a lifetime.
