Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Good trip to Ballestas Islands. Saw the sea lions and rock arches. It was pleasant and comfortable. Great company and experience.

Abigail was a professional guide. We were really lucky to have her with us for the whole tour. There were abundant sea animals in Ballestas Island. Abigail was always trying to help us to find more and make sure we were happy about the tour! So a million thanks to her!
Plus, I like the videos and the pics of the wild animals that she took, I will definitely bring this back home and share them with my friends:) Tks a lot!

We hire this company to do a few days of tour the guide Rossana was constantly rushing us the car that took us on the national tour air conditioning didn’t work correctly and you told them it wasn’t working right they got mad at you. We also hired them to take us to the nasca lines and that was the worse experience they picked us up at 7:30 am they didn’t have a stop set up for breakfast I had to make them stop with the excuse of using the restroom to shop for snacks. She would show us drive by tours basically telling us we couldn’t get out of the car to take pictures along the way because she had already seen it and it was not worth it. By the way all other tour buses did stop. As we drove by them. Once we where 10 min from airport she then and only then ask how much we weigh, I don’t know about anyone else but I hate weighing myself but I was pretty close except my niece and nephew I had no idea. So we guessed. One we arrived and paid for all taxes and we has hire a private plane for 6 passengers they came and told us that we wouldn’t be able to travel together because we where to heavy and they wanted to put me and my 4 other members on one plane and my husband on another. But they made us feel like it was the only way and that I couldn’t fly with my husband. I then said the kids the 4 other passengers could go but I would not go with my husband so they got all upset and being rude telling me that I should leave my husband alone and he could go on the other 2 passengers plane. I asked if I could go with him and they literally told me I was to fat to go with him and it was to dangerous. Which I then said ok no problem I will not go. To give me my money back on our portion. They kept insisting that I needed to go I kept telling them no. 29min later they came back with you can travel now with your husband it’s ok now, we looked at the numbers and it’s ok now where I was like why is it ok now and not before simply because I asked for my money back. I was scared to say the least, their attitude and behavior made me not trust them all they wanted was for them not to pay the money back and Rossana the tour guide was constantly telling me to go on the plane for my husband sake that he wanted to fly and was not doing it because of me. first they scared me and then she tried to manipulate me. I couldn’t do it so I stood my ground and my husband and I did not go on. We where supposed to go to do more sight seeing but after their failure to communicate and the tour guide Rossana was rude just because a I wanted my money back only for my husband and I not my other guess they did go on. From what my guess said it was fun but very scary. If they would have explained about the weight prior to the trip it would have been so much better to understand but the tour guide Rossana was a terrible guide. Not communicating what was to happen I had no idea that it was going to take 5 hours to get to nasca lines and then we where supposed to have done more touring for 4 hours of everything would have worked out it would have been an extremely long day we didn’t get back to paracas till 9 pm from 7:30 am if we had done the whole tour it would have been that we would have been back way after2 am. The island tour was great since we had an amazing captain and guide he was very informative. Unlike Rossana. I will have to come back but will most definitely use another company I truly do not recommend Rossana from Paraca Explore I will not say negative things from Paraca Explore other than they hired her.

Estimada, Apreciamos sinceramente su retroalimentación y lamentamos mucho escuchar sobre su experiencia negativa. Sin embargo, nos gustaría aclarar enfáticamente que nuestra agencia no proporcionó los servicios mencionados en su mensaje. La señora Rossana, quien subcontrató un tour a las Islas Ballestas a través de nuestra agencia, no está afiliada a nosotros ni tampoco lo está el equipo que la acompañaba. Es importante destacar que no tuvimos ninguna participación en los tours a las líneas de Nasca, el transporte proporcionado ni en la gestión de las experiencias mencionadas. Nosotros nos esforzamos por ofrecer experiencias turísticas de alta calidad, pero lamentablemente no podemos hacernos responsables de los servicios proporcionados por otros proveedores. Queremos asegurarle que tomamos en serio todas las quejas y comentarios de nuestros clientes, ya que nuestra prioridad es garantizar su satisfacción y seguridad durante sus viajes. Investigaremos más a fondo esta situación para evitar cualquier confusión futura y garantizar que nuestros clientes reciban el nivel de servicio excepcional que merecen. Nuevamente, lamentamos sinceramente cualquier inconveniente que haya experimentado y esperamos tener la oportunidad de servirle en el futuro y brindarle una experiencia turística memorable y sin contratiempos.

The tour was amazing! I definitely recommend the early time, as you beat the rest of the tourist boats to the islands and get very good views of the animals.

We did the first tour at 08 o clock this morning. Upon reaching the boat deck the guide told us to wait. Then an American couple came and got the last seats on the side. We got the ones in the back with bad a bad view. He was obviously hoping for more tips.

The tour itself was not better. The guide was unmotivated, always yelling at the people to have a seat and don’t take any photos.

Obviously when asking for a tipp in the end I could not see anyone giving him extra.

Maybe a good company, but the guide was not!

Eduardo, you’re welcome! for the review. Eduardo and the captain were great on our tour. After talking about the great things that PERU have offered to the world - he would sarcastically say “you’re welcome!” Very funny. He was very informative and really seemed to care that everyone had a great experience. We actually did some unexpected whale spotting and watching. Great way to wrap up the tour.

We had Ricardo as the guide and James as the caption and they were both great! The tour was so much fun and we got to see the beautiful native wildlife like Humboldt penguins, sea lions and Peruvian boobies (birds of course). It was a lot of fun!

Great tour from start to finish. We came in on a cruise and found this tour right near the local pier.

The price was very reasonable and was the same tour everyone else offers, so you're not missing anything for paying a lower price.

They have a very nice office with plenty of comfy seating, including a restroom! Someone then walks you over to the local pier to board your tour boat.

Our guide, Eduardo, spoke great English and Spanish, giving tour in both depending on your needs. He gave great information, not only on the Candelabro, but also the islands and wildlife. You'll learn more about Peruvian poop than you ever wanted to 😄

Our boat captain John was great as well, maneuvering us around small spaces, getting as close as was safe, to get us in the right position for great views.

Great tour and would highly recommend it to anyone in town.

They also offer some combo tours if interested, check them out!
